Finally enough sunlight to take some decent photos.

This bag was a bit of a departure for me, which I very much enjoyed.

I received some fantastic feedback on my last post. I was a little surprised to find out that I was far from being the only one who didn’t know how to do a proper zig-zag applique stitch.

I thought for sure I would get comments from people saying, “Well, DUH there’s an applique foot. Why WOULDN’T there be an applique foot!?” Well…I didn’t really expect people to post comments like that, because the blogging community is filled with sweet, supportive and generally friendly folks, but surely they would be rolling their eyes and thinking it, right? Nope.

Just one more reason to love being part of this world of bloggers.

    I love the bag. And i knew there was a foot but I hadn’t been able to find one yet. I had some kind of clear foot that the lady at the store said would prob. work. I tried useing it and, well it didn’t work. I tried Circles and gave up. Now i am renewed in my passion to find a proper Applique foot. and maybe i’ll try circles again.

    Really, you may have changed my life with the applique foot. I still have to find one, since I don’t have one. I found them online but I have my fingers crossed that Joanne’s will come through for me.

    What was your inspiration for the dots? Did you see something like that?
