"Embroidered Lavender Bags and 5 Little Wallets"

Hello,

I have been having spurts of sewing time lately, 5 minutes here and there. It seems to be the way to get things done sometimes.


I made two Lavender bags which use a machine embroidery design I found on the net. I picked some Lavender from the garden a few weeks back and left it on a plate to dry for this project.


Late last year O'faigh gave me this "Little Wallet" pattern by Valorie Wells which I have put to good use making five of them. I will be keeping one for myself the rest can be ready for gift giving.

I hope you get to spend some time sewing this week.

Happy Monday
Bev C

Hello Bev I like your lavender bags, now I love the bags. So a nice colors, and I can smell the lavender. I like the smell of lavender. The weather is not more so cold, but now we have a lot of rain and wind. I don't no what is better. But if they are right then next week we had frost again. I hope you have a nice week this week, not to hot I hope. Greetings Petra.

Those lavender bags are so lovely! And your wallets are adorable. What a great gift to make. It's great having extra wallets on hand, but I haven't found a pattern I love, so I always make it up. I like the look of the pattern you used.

Lovely embroidered lavender bags & sweet little purses Bev. I've been meaning to snip some of the dry lavender flowers...but time seems to vanish. I must make a list & try your 5 minutes here & there.
Have a great weekend Bev!
