Collage Fabric and going on Vacation

I have started another piece of collage fabric for making more purses. This time the color scheme is PINK and Orange!! I have already had a request to create a cell phone bag for a gal who does not wear clothes with pockets. I will be taking this project with me on my trip to Cape Cod. Becca and I leave tomorrow for 14 days on the road for our annual Girls Only Road Trip. We will return on the 27th of August . This will be my last post till we return.

Now, back to the fabric!!

This is the fabric after all the bits were placed and fused down.

That is just the beginning!! Here is the peice shown in close up, after I have done all sorts of free motion stitching in bright orange and bright pink thread. I love the texture that the stitching adds!!

This is another portion of the same piece. I am really pleased that my control of the free motion stitching seems to be getting better. Stitching without a pressor foot and with the Feed Dogs down is quite disconcerting at first!!! But I am getting used to it!!

This is a shot of a portion of the back of the piece so you can see the amount of stitching that I did.

Now I will start adding all of the beads and couched ribbons and sequins to the fabric. This will be a great traveling project!!

When we return , I will be posting with all sorts of fun pictures of our trip and the projects that I worked on while gone!! Have a great couple of weeks!! Enjoy your summer!!!

I love this Elizabeth and I love your free motion stitching (I just havent been able to get that down pat...maybe the machine needs a service, or is it the operator???)

Have a fabulous trip and I look forward to visiting your blog when you return.

Have fun !!!
