Accessories for the Purse

I made some accessories for the grommet purse from leftover fabric. The eyeglass case is made from directions in Ready, Set, Serge by Georgie Melot. It is so easy to make piping with a serger piping foot and almost as easy to stitch it to a project. The eyeglass case can be made in a matter of 10-15 minutes. I have taught the technique to local quilting groups. The credit card holder is a pattern I have been using for several years. It was originally shown to me at a sewing group meeting by staff at Bob's Bernina in Lawrence. Just pull down on the cord and the card pops out the top.

On the quilting front, I am working on quilting the More Wild!flowers quilt by The Stitch Connection. The CD has grass clumps that can be used for quilting and I have completed that part of the quilt. Now to figure out how to quilt the flower blocks and then the other pieced blocks. I should have it finished in a couple of days.
