Have I mentioned how much I love Etsuko Fuyura fabric? Yes, a million times! I'll make it one million and one...I love Etsuko Fuyura fabric! You might remember that I used it to make a a purse for my daughter a few months ago. This past weekend, a dear friend sent me a little box of goodies, which included an Echino Ni-Co 2011 by Etsuko Furuya Natural fat quarter bundle! Heaven! I chose the first FQ to make myself a pair of slippers. I think they are beyond awesome!
I used Simplicity 2278 for my slippers. I stayed true to the pattern, however I chose not to use Jiffy Grip for the bottoms. Instead, I used a suede-like fabric. My feet will be toasty and look good during my hospital stay next week! Who said you can't look hip and trendy when you are getting a new knee? (Would have been funnier if I was getting a new hip instead of a knee!) Thanks again to my friend for my treasure box. You know who you are and just how great you are!
I completed a few more bags and added them to my Etsy Shop. The image transfers turned out great. The first bag is coin purse size. Doesn't Nixon look cool? The other two are flat bottom cosmetic bags. Who doesn't love bras and shoes?
Thanks for the great feedback about my iPad Curse! Writing up a tutorial for one is on my list of things to get done before next week. So, stay tuned!
Tootles for now!
