Shopping bag, purple and yellow

Choose three pieces of fabric
whose colors combine well 

I like to combine 2 plain colors 
with 1 fabric with many colors 

The pockets are made extra strong 
by stiffening 

Two pockets outside and two inside the bag

Someone will do sustainable shopping 

Have a nice weekend, Gerrie

Elefant and mouse

15 x 20 cm.
A small cross stitch work,
 nice as a book cover, a wall hanging or 
as a pillow with some colored fabric around
Happy stitching, Gerrie

A new bag

A new shopping bag, this one got 
a traditional Portuguese image


The appliqued sardines, 
 the first option: an orange sardine in the middle, 
I  substituted for a blue one

A button as eye of the fish

inside pocket

I took (never used) straps from another bag 

And there we have a new shopping bag


Pillows machine embroidered

A simple way to make pillows:
take a colorful fabric and felt as a backing layer
do some machine embroidery 

easy peasy, new chair pillows 

Nice weekend,

Mandala peacock

Peacock made for the celebration of Saint John.

So beautiful,
 made with different kind of flowers,
 this peacock looks almost like a mandala

Good weekend,
