Sure I can make that??!!

Ya know when you own a sewing machine, friends and family think you could make anything! No so but I'm up for the challenge.... a family member asked I make a velvet bag in which to place a book gift for someone. Me.. sew velvet...not skilled for that... but in the spirit of the effort... I found an elegant knit velour that I could back with Pellon Craft Fuse for stability. I then added batting and quilted in some texture before I lined the piece with a beautiful batik. Look at that closure I found.. Very nice. That took a full day for me to figure out but it's done... and anything for family!!!!!
