Design Wall Monday–March 21, 2016

My oh my, where has the time gone.  After attending Empty Spools in Pacific Grove, CA a few weeks ago, I came down with the creepy crude.  I don’t know what else to call it.  I thought I was getting a cold but it turned into a 103 F. temperature followed by a cough that just doesn’t want to go away.  Needless to say, not feeling well greatly caused by sewing to suffer.  Finally this weekend I got a little of my mojo back. 

A while back I was talking to a quilter working at a shop in South Carolina.  While waiting for her to finish talking to one of her customers I overheard her talking about a Joy Mangano roll-up makeup bag that she used for her hand sewing.  I was intrigued and chatted with her about it.  She said she got it at Target.  So off to Target I went.  They were sold out of just about everything but they had one large roll-up makeup bag sitting on the shelf.  Well, of course, I bought it and brought it home and continued to stare at it for the last month or so.  I finally decided I needed to partially disassemble it and make my own cover for it. (I know, I know, I just can’t leave anything along.) 

Here is “my” finished bag. 


Isn’t it cute?  Here’s the before.


And again the very cute, after.


I absolutely love it.  I was planning on using it for my travel bathroom/makeup bag but I just don’t know now.  I think it came out too cute to only used a handful of times a year.  Maybe it will become my hand project carry-all instead.
