Valentine Wall Hanging & Pocket Canister......

This Valentine wall hanging was another fun and easy project. It's now hanging in my foyer. The hanger came from the Bernina store and I thought was a perfect match for this project. I plan to make a matching table runner if I can find the same or similar fabrics.
This little pocket canister was made to fit over a #10 can. It has lots of pockets, inside and out for storing sewing tools or many other items. It has a little drawstring on the bottom so the cover can be removed for washing. Several of us made it today at the Bernina Sewing Centre using the Lynn Knox pattern "Pocket Canister". Our instructor, Cheryl, had kits made for us so the sewing part went quick and easy. I just love using pre-cut kits which save a lot of fabric cutting time.

Another purse....

This is a purse I made this past Saturday. I added a hard bottom and several inside pockets. The leather handles were a nice touch with pink buttons added to match the flowers. I'm thinking of adding a center divider, perhaps with a zipper pocket. This was a fun project and closely matches one of my floral blouses with like colors.
