Cutting Up

It’s been a cutting kind of day. (Well, aside from getting a beef stew into the crockpot, making muffins for breakfast, and getting the little H to his swimming lesson and 18month doctor’s appointment.)

I’ve been prepping fabric for a new handbag. It’s an Amy Butler design that was featured a couple of years ago in one of my quilting magazines and I’ve been dying to try it ever since.

To make things even better, I am using some fabric I got from my excellent sister-in-law, Ellie.  She actually designed this fabric and it is perfect for a small clutch.   Here are some photos of the fabric cut out into the appropriate shapes.

The lining is a silver charmeuse fabric.  Charmeuse is really sumptuous to the touch and has a great sheen.  I’m pretty excited about this project.

And I got my sewing machine back! Woooot!  I’m planning on pinning and sewing tonight while watching NCIS.  (I’m a multitasker.)  And the plan for tomorrow is to throw myself back into the fray of quilting.
