A Busy Elf


John's sister Chris ordered 6 envelope purses to give as Christmas presents. Luckily the weather this weekend cooperated and I was able to get all of them finished. There really is something to the saying "Practice makes perfect."
The purse I like this most is this one because I was able to experiment around with some free-motion quilting. I have one more piece of this batik fabric, and I want to try kicking the quilting up a notch.
The MORS bags are for my mom to give as Christmas presents. These Christmas fabrics all have gold in them and are pretty snazzy. One set of bags is smaller than the others - the piece of fabric I had wasn't quite enough for full-size bags. I'll get to the final Christmas commission - just not today!
