Lace Making and EZPZ zippered bags in the hoop!!

Had to take a break from quilting to start making some lace for the bridal gown. The scalloped piece was to go around the train which will be silk organza--I think it is a little too heavy for that, so its back to the drawing board to try to figure something else out. The other little pieces are going to be zig zagged together to form a trim to go around a part of the jacket I am making for me. While making the lace, I just had to take a break to make these cute little zippered bags. They are completely done in the embroidery hoop--yes, even the rick rack. They are so much fun!!
This one holds my Little Quilts receipts. It is always with me because you never know when an emergency will hit and you have to head to the fabric store and there just might be enough receipts that will add up to one free yard of fabric!!

This one will hold all my weight watcher trackers--there's none in there now--I haven't been doing too good on that.

  1. Oh my gosh Karen that lace is breathtaking! Is it Zundt? I love their lace! Are both these motifs done with Isacord? Do you have any samples of the cotton?

    Those bags turned out too cute! Careful making them... they're so darn addictive you'll find yourself setting everything aside to do them!
