a calm saturday.

a few weeks ago i tried to buy fusible ("iron-on") interfacing. i even asked the lady at the shop to sell me a yard of the "iron-on" kind, to be sure. after many failed atempts, i came to the realization that the lady sold me the sew-on kind, because today i bought a small package of pellon interfacing and it worked exactly the way the directions said it would. i'm even sort of excited to use it again! here's what i made with it- my brother and i are treating my mom to a spree at the clinique counter for mother's day, so i made her a new makeup bag:



here's the detail of the bird applique and the stitch


exterior and lining with green zigzag stitch.

i'm pretty pleased with it, and i really think the interfacing made a nice difference. hope mom likes it!
