I'm thrilled to be back in the studio. Finished up several things. My sewing machine was humming along all weekend and so was I. After I stitched up the Redwork piece, I wanted to do something with it and this is how it ended up. Behold: my "Hugs and Kisses" bag. I think I'll leave this hanging around, just in case someone wants to surprise me and drop something sweet in there. Anyway, what makes this bag fun (besides the gift potential) is that it's constructed almost entirely from pre-cut jelly-roll strips; that means, no measuring or cutting. Not to sound lazy or anything, but time is often a deciding factor with a project like this and short-cuts are most welcome. The whole thing went together rather quickly too and that made me immensely happy. I'm discovering you can do so much with these pre-cut strips. Even cutting out diamonds and other shapes with relative ease for quiltmaking. I know. Everyone probably already knew that, right? I'm slow, but I catch on eventually!
Here's a sneak-preview of the Woody Alphabet I used here, which will be available Wednesday, on my website, along with the new bonus transfer set for Jan-Feb. Also, another blog give-away, and a freebie pattern for all, so be sure and stop by for some XOX from me to you!
