I want a little bag to take a sketchbook with me and since I have been very inspired by a lot of old fashioned ideas recently I used a little of some fabrics I've been hoarding to put together a little bag. I've just started quilting it - I'm drawing out my design as I go using two paper template and a tailors chalk pencil, then stitching around the design on my machine. Perhaps I should have hand stitched it to make it look more rustic... It will be subtle, but hopefully an interesting touch to those who notice.
Would anyone be interested in some step by step's once it is done, including how to make a symetrical machine cog pattern very easily?
Has anyone got any advice to share on my reverse applique thoughts? Have you done any of these techniques?
