Welcome to Shiralee Stitches. I live on a cattle farm in Australia with my family.
I am passionate about all things fabric so much so I started my own online and mobile store. Link is on the sidebar to my store. I teach patchwork classes and take my shop to quilting and patchwork groups and also attend various craft markets.
I love English Paper Piecing, applique, machine quilting, working with woven wools. I have started making my own designs which I love.

A New Bag....For Sewing ...

I was so inspired when I met Anni Downs at GDITC, that I decided I needed to get busy and finish this bag that I started some time ago.
It is called "Sewing Store", and this is a close-up of the applique and stitchery....
I chose this ticking fabric as the lining....
I plan to use this bag to cart all my sewing treasures to and from craft group on Thursdays, and also to load all my purchases in when I visit the craft shows.

Beautiful!! Love it. Just wondering... how big is it? Are you sure it'll hold all the crafty purchases you're likely to make?! I'd need one of those granny baskets on wheels I think! ;)

The bag is just lovely
it's funny how you start to recognize the designers, as soon as i looked at it i thought that looks like one of Anni's projects....

Hum, the bag looks big enough for patterns and threads but if I were doing damage in the fabric areas I'd need something bigger... maybe. It is very cute. Sorry I don't recognize the designer... note to self -- read more Australian bloggers! B.
