 Challenge 2014

Challenge Leader: Cindy Stachelski

Our Challenge was to make a purse using a free online tutorial as our guide. We could alter or embellish the pattern as we pleased, making it our own and making it work for us! Suggested variations were....

      • Change the handles, change or eliminate the pocket
      • Do something interesting on the inside
      • Use pieced fabric instead of a solid piece
      • Use the decorative stitches on our machines
      • Show off our embroidery or red work skills
      • Use up some rainbow fabric
      • Add feathers or beads!!
