It has been a long time since I have used the sewing machine to create anything. I love all the creative bags of all different sizes that I have been seeing so I thought it was time I made one of my own. The base of this is denim that I had on hand. I cut a large doily in half and sewed it to the front. The other half is used along with half of a beautiful silk scarf I have had for a long time to hang from beneath the "flower". The other half of the scarf was used in making the large flower along with some lace and a vintage button. This was fun to make and hopefully will get my creative juices flowing again.
I retired in 2005 after dealing blackjack and roulette in Las Vegas casinos for almost 20 years. I have one daughter and one grand-daughter who introduced me to altered art after my retirement. I was born in Iowa and grew up on a farm. I began the Memoirs of a Wildrose blog in the form of letters to my daughter to share information with her about family heirlooms and family history, plus remembrances of today, yesterday and yesteryear ! "Book of Douglas" blog is the story of my late husband, his life as I knew him, and our journey through life together. Ginny's Art blog was created to provide myself a record of my artsy creations.
