This piece was machine appliqued back when I was still enthralled by a bizarre array of commercial cotton prints and just breaking in the Janome 6500.
It also has some hand stitching and a signature! One has to wonder what one was thinking. Possessed by Aliens? Most likely.
Now it's a nice little go bag. About 14"x12" with a trixie little inner pocket for a cell phone and a pen or two. Not heavy weight for toting canned goods but easily a book or a nook, wallet, keys and your Groucho disguise.
This is fun and it will get easier as I wade through that stack of slackers.
