To stitch up a wine tote than New Year’s Eve day??!! Ms Bernina was still in fmq mode and Ms Juki was at the ready for all other needed stitching so off I went………. The 9/24 is the open toe version of the one that I used on this project and the one I usually go to (awesome foot!). But, since this was a really small project, I thought I would use the foot that came with the machine! I know……what a crazy thought!!! I spent extra $$$$ to get the 9/24 and I’m using………well, for most fmq, the open toe visibility is beyond comparison but the motif I chose for this tote is the feather-swirl and doesn’t require backtracking or exacting stitching so I knew I could make this one work……and work it did!!!!I’ve made several different styles of wine totes this year (read here) but wanted to try a different handle style. Off to Walmart to buy……curtain rings!!! Yup, these little thingies…….. Oh I know….these have been used a lot in the past year or so for various totes and purses (I’ve really/honestly thought they were kinda ugly~~~~), but for something a little different, well……….
I’m not sure what happened on that last photo, but the more-red ‘shot’ is accurate. I curved the top of that one a little (following the pattern suggestion) and I think I like it better.
Enough of the stitching for today……..
“See” ya next year!!!!!!! And…one more huge thanks for coming along with me on this leg of my quilting adventure. It’s been a “hoot” and I’ve treasured each conversation I’ve been blessed to have with you!!! Hugs………….
