And it became this: the front...
The embroidery is a line drawing I found on Pinterest - it links through to a French blog.
...And the back
I've been having a go at graffiti quilting this weekend - taking different quilting motifs and joining them together with pebbles: feathers, spirals, random loopy bits... lots of pebbles.
The fabrics are from my [diminishing] stash: a red Robert Kaufman blender on the outside and the lining is one of those great texty fabrics that come in bundles from Sew Me A Song.
I mostly used this tutorial to make the zippy pouch, but cut the front and back and linings to 11.5" x 8.5" and boxed the corners at 1.5"
Come the beginning of next year (!) I'll be linking up!
