First, I want to say a big thank you to Madame Samm for allowing me to participate in this blog hop. Even though I am crazy busy right now, I just couldn’t resist the pull of the Tammy bag’s influence!
I started out with some Lecien fabric that I have been saving for a long time. I didn’t know what I was going to use it for. You know that fabric. You love it, don’t want to cut it, so it sits on the shelf gathering dust waiting for that “perfect” project. I didn’t have a lot of it, so I figured the Tammy bag really was perfect project for it!
I added a spiral crochet rope that I made from some variegated crochet cotton to be a scissors keeper, since I am always misplacing my scissors. I decided to make a little heart out of the same thread and I sewed it on just the one side. I also added some crochet trim that I purchased at JoAnn’s to the pockets on both the outside and the inside.
Now on to the pictures:
I added a Swarovski crystal dangle that I made along with my initial charm and some crochet markers that I made a while ago.
Here are all the goodies that I had tucked in there. Lots of floss colors, my embroidery piece, a needle book, a ruler, a pencil, a notebook (just in case I become inspired), my drawn pattern and some bits, bobs and beads that I am embellishing my needlework project with. I also have some sewing thread and gold accent thread in the outside pockets. Even with all this stuff in the bag, I still had plenty of room for lots more!
This was a fun project and I really enjoyed making it. I will definitely be making more Tammy bags in the future!
Thanks for stopping by!
