UPDATE BELOW-Hello Cuties-I thought I was going to sew this morning... I did manage to cut my colored fabric out and emb all 3, before I had to go stay with the kids. SIL's mom was suppose to go stay today but there was a mix up, on her end I believe and so I ran over.



Anyway, came back about 5 o'clock-I had cooked our meal & theirs while there, so DH and I ate and then I got to finish making these cosmetic bags. Whew!


Three more things I can cross off my list-lol-Have a good night/day whatever the case may be-Toogie





ps-What would you do about this red bag? My mark-b-gone did not want to water spritz out, so I had to spray with Shout. It dried while I was gone to babysit and when I came back, it looks some of the white diamonds are pink. Should I machine wash it or let it go like this? It is for my niece's co-workers. I don't want to make things worse....ugh!!!!
UPDATE- I soaked the red in Oxiclean, for about an hour,in a plastic pan then washed, in my machine. All the white diamonds are white again! I thought you could see if you clicked on. It may not show clear, on my phone photo. Yea!!! Thanks Cuties!!!

It seems like for the last few weeks, if I do get a chance to sew, I have to make good time. Thanks for looking

Being a bit too hard on yourself. Your bags are fantastic. Like the zip at the top. Presume it is an ITH design?

No Sarah, it's not ITH. I don't have a machine with an emb field that size.I wish though!-lol` I cut these 12 wide by 10 or 11 hign. When I box the corners I lose about 2 inches in height, with a 1/2 in seam and 1 1/2 inch for bottoms since the bottoms are 3 inches.

If it bothers you, I would wash it... probably by hand and I'm with Nan...Oxi-Clean is great and try it on a scrap and see what happens..

Thanks, the font is the same one I used on her tote a few weeks ago, called 347 Pisgah from Apex.

Those look really nice and I love your font. I agree with Maria. Wash any scraps you have in really warm water and see what happens. I would use a color catcher in my wash if I were you, too. OR, try washing just one of the squares with a q-tip dipped in sudsy water and see what happens.

If you know it will wash out, then give it a go. If you are in doubt, don't [that's my motto anyway, haha!] good luck. And I love your purses, as usual they are beautiful

Beautiful - I wouldn't do anything. Nobody will know except you! If you wash it it may happen that the color "bleeds" into the other fabric too. Do you have a remainder of that fabric? You could at least try to wash that and see how it is turning out. Love all your bags and the lettering. Thank you - Maria
