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.

You were right.....It IS a bag......

Most of you clever ladies know your Aussie designers very well, and almost all guessed correctly....this....


.....was to become........this......
A beautiful design of Anni from Hatched and Patched.
Here's a clearer piccie with a plain background.
Check out the stitchery/applique pocket.
I bought some locally handmade buttons at a craft stall last year and I was keen to use them..

This is the base of the bag...kind of barrel shaped.
Anni's designs are always well written and easy to follow. That makes them a joy to make.
I think I have enough bags for a while now, so I'd better get on and make something different.

I hope you're having a productive weekend.
