I found myself with an unexpectedly quiet house a few nights ago. I can't say that I had nothing to do, because there's always something around here nagging for my attention. I know you know what I mean. But I gave myself permission to ignore all those somethings and spent a happy hour in my sewing room instead.
It was October 1st. I was craving some Fall colours and this coin purse hardware from Zakka Workshop has been sitting on my desk, patiently waiting for me to make it.
So my mind went to "pumpkin".
The tiny floral print is a new addition to my stash and the stripe - which is literally the ONLY other orange fabric in my stash and I may have had a slight moment of panic when I couldn't find it right away - has been around for quite a while. Both are Lecien. And my PamKitty stash had the perfect glowy-moonlit yellow for the lining. :)
And of course ... some lace and a bow. How else would you know I'm the one who made it? Funny thing, though, I had the hardest time picking a colour. Light green, hot pink, deep maroon, white, black, purple ... I auditioned pretty much every skinny ribbon I had. But I was going for pumpkin and this nice kelly green - that just so happens to match the leaf in the fabric - worked the best.
Are you doing any Halloween/Fall sewing?
