“Eggnog And Rum”
I tell you working in a fabric store can be fun. Especially when in the middle of the summer you receive Christmas print fabrics….nooo I love the summer heat……I really don’t want to think about that cold winter time…gurr. I prefer and love the summer heat we are having now.
So on a quieter day at work I thought I’ll give that embroidery machine, “Alliance” by Baby Lock a try again. I like working with that machine.
Just a fun table runner with no exact pattern really just have fun …..
“Sugar”, “Milk”, “Rum”, and “Eggnog”
Then added the Lite Steam-A-Seam2 to the back of the embroidered words and cut them to shapes of your liking. Do the same with panel fabric sections. I left about 1/4″ all around each sections. I like them to fray a bit once it will get washed. Not sure how that will work out at this time but if you want to secure each section with the raw edge application method.
I already cut my green background fabric that measures 9.5″ x 36″ then added all around a 2″ border. Now add the cut out words and panel sections to the runner as you like.
Add the heat resistant batting and backing and pin all well so that you can work your free motion quilting. This part can be a lot of fun just let your creative mind take over….tirm the outside off and add a binding just like for quilts.
Best thing Clodagh my boss said to me yesterday, was
“Let’s work up an embroidery Design from our newest Anita Goodesign All Access Club …..oh yes, and try to do it on the Baby Lock Alliance Embroidery machine”
If you could have seen my reaction …Smiles Yes with open arms literally …I welcomed and needed that challenge. Sometimes it is hard to see the light when your so sad and can’t see the sunshine in life…
Out came the manual and step by step I worked up this card….Yes I Can
I now think this would be a really great machine for me at home too all the many ideas I have for it…Just need the funds for it…haha. I a sure I am not the only one with this thought…
I have put together a view videos in sections so hopefully this will make it easier to knit Your next Entrelac project too. I have still one more video section to do and that would be:

I will be working on a view more videos in the next view days, that will show you how to Merge the sections together on the purl side. And hopefully also the two triangle section on each side. The last row with all the casting off triangles …..Yes then off to the sleeves and the collar.

Yehhh I finished this bag ….after 3 days of sewing….I did it!!!
The pattern is at it original way a Sewing Bag…
I like it, but since I would never use the ironing pad on it. I decided to alter this up…
followed the pattern (except for iron pad) ….till I came to outer panels.
I tell You I am glad I have a workhorse fo a sewing machine, Janome MC6500 . I used faux Suede and the interfacing was heavy too. Would go lighter next time in my choice of Interfacing or Stabilizer.
Then I was not sure where I had gone wrong? Somehow I ended up with two the same with outer fabric 1 facing out and second 1 facing in….NOOOOO!!! Why is that I ask?
Off to my modifications working a side panel like in the “Sew Together Bag”. Only to realize that now the bag front and back are falling way to much open.
OK, what next was my question? Lets turn bag inside out and make more pockets…LOL
Perfect !!! FINISHED HUwww…
So I am looking forward to seeing the once worked up at the store…It is the first bag I have put together that has lots of zippers, pockets and folder slots.
I think this will be a great bag to go travel with. Perfect for Passports, Travel documents and yes even my DSL Camera should fit in to my modified bag…
Happy with the end result….yes not perfect with all the exact precise measures….I like it and I managed to sew it up on my own (Embroidery section for Front pocket is a sample that was going into the garbage!)
Smiles and I get to make another one too….;-)))))
