Our Just For You 'Sewlebrity' Sewalong made January a bit warmer!
And now I get to show off some fan projects. :)
Two fans made the Sweetly Gathered Round handbag (designed by Delia of Delia Creates). Celeste-zu added brown leather to the bottom the same way that Sherri did. It matches her brown leather handles.
She used beautiful Acorn Trail canvas (from Birch Fabrics). This bag is gorgeous!
Lena made a beautiful taupe bag with classy black handles. I love how it would go with any outfit.
She put a pop of color in the lining. Turquoise is my favorite color. <3
I'm so thrilled that both fans chose to make their own handles using the instructions in the book. It's not hard at all and I'd bet just about any sewing machine could do it if you used a nice sharp leather needle.
And yay! Tina made a Chevron Shrug. I actually have some gray and black striped fabric already purchased and sitting in my stash that I was planning to use just like she did. Her shrug looks amazing and I hope she wears it all the time. :)
I'm sending SewCanShe Sewlebrity buttons to Lena and Celeste-zu for joining in and giving me pictures. Will you join in next month? We have two more Sewlebrity Bloggers lined up to make the Hollywood Scarf and Venna Tote. You can grab a copy of Just For You and join in at any time. If you have a blog that you'd like me to link back to, just let me know. :)
