Purple Traveling Bag

Purple Travel Bag
My daughter says she is worried about me.  She doesn't understand the appeal of having matched sewing accessories. She has no idea just how proud I am proud to display my matching sewing accessories in my purple travelling bag.

In fact, before I started updating my blog, I made sure that my current project is in that bag.  I am taking it to work tomorrow to finish once last seam during lunch.  I can hardly wait for my co-workers, who will stop and want to know what everything is, to see my recently finished bag.

Scissor's Keep
I decided to branch out in my choice of color for this project.  I used purple.  When I went to Joann's last week, I found a matching purple thimble.  I also found matching purple embroidery hoops. I even have purple straight pins. I had to settle for a blue seam ripper but I have my eye out for a purple one!

Pin Rollup and Needlebook
The project called for some embroidery.  I found the motifs on Hoop Love.  We are so privileged to live in a time when we can utilize resources on the web.  I used the tissue transfer method.  See this blog post from Mary Corbet on Design Transfer.  It was a good opportunity to try out my light box.  It worked very well.

This was another project that was sponsored by StitchMAP (Stitch Mentor Apprentice Program). I have learned so much from them.  I know that they all appreciate how much fun it will be to show off my new tools at work.  My daughter just asked if I was going to "inflict" my crafting on my co-workers while she is rolling her eyes!
