What a COMBO!!!

I am still a newbie poster :) I wanted a new garment for one of my company's workshop, so I made yet another B5147.  The fabric is a stretch denim with sparkle red that was in my stash already.  However; the hat is a oop B3664.  I left the top off so I can wear my natural hair out or twists.  The clutch handbag was made from scratch and is lined with two pockets.  I was so happy to find this on youtube how to line a pouch tutorial. Also, another great tutorial is how-to-make-a-lined-zipper-pouch-tutorial/. I really love the embroidery that I had to play with to get the letters to embroider correctly.  Cardigan is from K. Jordan K. Jordan Cardigan. Thanks to my friend Corlette in NY who supplied me with the lining fabric.

 Hopefully; my posts will not take so long and they will become better and better :)

    1. Thanks Judith :) Now I am trying to revive my sewing mojo. I attempted a few times to find some fabric in my stash but I end up with nothing in my hand...SMH :)

  14. I agree with Judith, everything looks great - the bag is fantastic. Don't be hard on yourself about blog technique - everyone starts somewhere - just keep going with making things and enjoy the process. Maybe the stash is telling you to go and get something the will rev up the mojo.
