My scarf now measures 41 inches, just a bit more still to do!
As I have no sewing to post about, I thought you might like to see these gorgeous bags and hussif I made a few years ago.
The above bag design is by Julie Craig of Attic Heirlooms in Kansas, sorry I can't seem to get a link to Julie.
The fabric is a beautiful pin tucked bronze in colour, which has a little sparkle to it in the light
The hussif folds up and fits inside the bag , here it is opened up.
This is my version inspired by one Julie made , it has provisions for embroidery scissors, cotton spools, needle book, crochet thimble holder, strawberry pin cushion, pencils and a few tiny pockets for whatever..

This green and gold Dupion silk bag is my favourite.
I hand painted the laces and did all the embellishing on both the bags and hussif.... I think this bag is very elegant and lovely to use for an evening out.
The little cylinder hanging on the side for needles or loose change.
Perhaps today, I may fit in a bit of sewing...
