scrappy been there, done that

Here is the first project to be completed with the fabric strips. I sewed on a little rick-rack and ribbon to add a little texture.

I had in mind this orangish fringe trim for the edges of the pillow, some stuff I got at Tasha's pieced goods, the big warehouse on the frontage road in Springville- before it changed into an antique mall.
I got a lot of really wacky colored lace, rick-rack and assorted trimmings extremely cheap before they sadly phased out that part of the store.
I searched my sewing room and could not find the fringe in question. It turned up the next day, in another tub full of trims in my crawl pre-sewing room organizational system leftovers. At least NOW I know I really do have some orange fringe, and I can find it put away in it's proper place from now on. So, this greenish trim found it's way onto the pillow. It makes it a bit fancier, just the sort of thing kids can't keep their hands off.

the orange trim in question...

I was looking around at church today and I noticed a lot of women have bags that have the same look as yours (yours are better of course). But it got me thinking that you could probably sell a ton here, especially now that it is "fall harvest festival" season!

Love the picture of the ribbons and trims ... mmmmm. Makes me think of my Oma Stella's ribbon drawer. She never threw anything out :)

I agree with Lex about your bags. While in SF I did some research, also thought about manufacturing/selling. Have a sample to show you. Fun hidden pocket.
