a little magic trick

Did you know you can turn this:


into one of these?
I have an old friend who I've recently reconnected with and she found out I was sewing again. She said to me one day, "Do you have a serger? I have one I hardly use and I was going to sell it on Craigslist. I will give it to you in exchange for a bag..." I didn't really have to think twice about that one. Now I just need to learn how to use it.


I mean really, did you know this fabric was THIS gorgeous? I didn't. And the more I work with it the more I want to plaster it on my walls. Which I found out you can do! But that's a story for another day.


When I finished it I told my friend I might need to just give her the serger back. I mean, c'mon!! She looks so pretty on my blue chair! It's okay though, I bought some more - maybe I'll make a little bolster for my chair.

In other fabric news. . .
I'm still sad about the whole extinction of the Belle and Lotus lines.

However,

I think Tula Pink's new line may just mend my broken heart.

That bag is totally gorgeous! And "happy serger" to you that is great.

I hadn't seen Tula Pink's new line. I love it!!

Unbelievably cool. A serger for a bag?! What a fun trade! You'll have to keep the rest of us posted on the world of sergers -- I've always thought it would be neat to own one, but I have no idea how to use one or the many different ways a serger can be used/come in handy.

You got yourself a sweet deal!

I love my serger. It isn't hard to use at all. A little tricky to thread, but once you get that, it's a piece of cake.

Deisha said...

Love the little bag.
Love the shoes to bad you had to send them back.
I need a bag
Oh, no you have a serger I can only imagine where you will go with this one.
Now that I have commented here I want one in return!! hehehehe

Okay.... so I want a bag, too! I LOVE them!

How do I commission a bag? How much do you charge?

Would I get to pick the fabric or leave it up to you, the master?
