five fabulous frenchies

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

A while back I showed you a prototype for a project I was working on but I couldn't show you what the project was exactly. I gave you a hint last week but it's all I could do... but I think it's safe now. two of the people that may or may not read this blog are basking in the loveliness that is Roma, two don't really read my blog (I don't think), and I'm seeing one of them today so hopefully she doesn't see this BEFORE I see her.... plus I myself and taking off to Rome today and I don't want to post this there for I will be stuffing my face with pasta and cheese I'm sure.

It's a little strange that I'm making them frenchies when we're heading to Italy but here we go -- in lieu of getting my bridesmaids jewelry for my wedding, I decided to make each of them a bag with various fabrics I thought they would appreciate and that suited their distinct personalities. They're all from Amy Butler -- I love that I can go through her 'stash' to find something for everyone.

As I mentioned, I'm off to Italy today (to get married!) so I won't have any sewing posts for a while - I will try to add some fun Italian adventure pics during my travels.



  1. The bags look great! Best of luck for your wedding - hope you have a fantastic time.

  2. Congratulations! Hope you have an amazing time and come back on clouds! Those Frenchies are beautiful by the way.

  3. These are GORGEOUs! The prototype knocked my socks off when you first posted it, and these have induced drool. What thoughtful, lovely bridesmaids gifts.
    Have a fabulous time in Italy, and best wishes for your wedding. Congratulations!

  4. Great bags,

    Have a great trip and enjoy every moment of your wedding! can't wait to see lovely pictures!

    Take Care,
