Layers, stitches and slashing and we have a sunglass pouch

Different effects from layering, stitching and finally cutting.

Phew!  The sunglasses  fit in!  That was plain lucky ha! ha!
Actually, this makes a sturdy pouch.  Good for protecting those 'sunnies.'

I have loved creating this.  Layers of lace and fabric stitched down and machined.
Carefull cutting of fabric to reveal layers of pretty colours and patterns. 
Then more stitching  to create waves of beautiful colours going this way and that.
To learn more about these techniques you may like to watch a video on this site.
Fay Maxwell shows us some of her beautiful work alongwith techniques.
She's also a great teacher.  Enjoy!
