My machine was in for repair and I got it back so I made a few clutch bags for hair stuff. The design a from stickbär. Real easy in the hoop. I added the stippling and crosshatch to give it extra support.

I also want to let all cuties know I have been looking at all the great projects and designs that have been created. They are lovely. Creative and adorable as always. Keep posting . Keeps me motivated and hugs to all, my machine has to be sent to husqavarna viking . Repair did not fix the electronic problem. :(

They are all well done!
I hope your machine behaves very soon!

Great collection of bags! Love the one with your Birgit on it! As a diamond owner - I feel your pain. I, too, had numerous trips to the repair shop to get it straightened out. Fingers crossed that yours will be properly fixed for good!

Your bags are beautiful
I hope your machine comes home soon in perfect condition !

Ah Birgit that is such a shame. I do hope your machine comes back rather quickly & maybe you can get a loaner while you wait. I did not know that you could & I had to send mine back so cuties told me to ask & I did & they gave me a loaner! Your clutches are terrific & I love your fabric choices. Best of Luck with the repairs. Hugs *** Loralye

Beautiful! Great job on these. One question: when you order these designs do you receive the instructions in english?
I have a Husqvarna Viking Limited Edition. It is a gem of a machine. It sews and embroiders beautifully! I love it. I'd like a machine with a jumbo majestic hoop, but afraid to buy another machine in fear it wouldn't sew as nice as this one..

Very pretty! I love your fabrics.

These bags you've done are so delightful& the colors so vibrant too. Wondered what Viking machine you had? Trust you'll get your machine back soon& better than ever. :~D

You used those magic words " real easy in the hoop" in your description.
Now I just had to go and buy those designs. What great gift ideas.
Hope they soon fix your machine.

Thanks, me too. I have a DDD . Bought it in July last year new. Problems since the day I got it. Even though it has issues I love the way it stiches and sews when everything is working properly. Just an expensive machine and wouldn't expect to have such problems. It happens with anything . Problems can happen. Just wish it wouldn't take so long once I send it back.

by greytgirl 04 Mar 2014

Beautiful job on the clutch bags. Love your choice of fabrics!
