Is it Friday yet? Wow, it's only Monday and I am so ready for the weekend! I got a few bags completed this past Saturday and I want to get back into my sewing studio to keep it going. I got to spend most of the day in my sewing studio. It was so great....just me and my Janome. I finished up a few "free-motion" bags as well as a couple of image transferred zippy bags, including the one pictured above. I embellished the Cowgals bag with some beads and embroidery, as well as some ribbon on the bottom. Here is a look at the back of the bag as well as the inside:
I transferred another image, this one depicting an old bicycle messenger service. I didn't embellish this image. Instead, I "patchworked" the back of the bag.
You might recognize the fabric I used for the rear of the bag. It's that scrumptious Etsuko Fuyura designed Echino fabric I used for my daughter's Sweet Pea purse. Still love that fabric!
I am really pleased with how the images transferred. I still think the results achieved using the gel medium transfer method is so much better than printing directly onto computer "fabric." It's just more genuine, if that makes sense. Anyway, read through my Image Transfer Tutorial and give it a try...I think you'll be really impressed!
Stay cool everyone! It was officially 104 degrees outside as I drove home this afternoon...and I just heard tomorrow is supposed to be the hottest day of the year!! Ugh!
