those days where you can spend the whole day in your sewing room? I went into mine this morning not knowing what I was going to get into but I knew I had to do something. What I came up with are these:
The first two I machine embroidered on overdyed wool and came up with these 3 strawberries and a scissor case. The bottom picture is a tote bag with handles that I decided to do a peacock on. Now if you look closely, you'll see that the peacock is wrapped around a silver shoe. The strip of fabric you see to the right I added because that's the fabric I found for the lining and it's just too pretty not to show at least some of it on the outside. By the way, there's over 74,000 stitches in the embroidery design. My poor little machine was really working it's butt off doing this one.
