You all know that I wasn't happy with the earlier bag. So with another birthday this Friday, I decided to try a different tac. I have a fancy sewing machine with an embroidery module, so why not use it? It can be difficult to find motifs that seem contemporary and not overly twee. I got this teacup design from UrbanThreads. It cost me USD 7, which is a bargain compared to spending three days trying to appliqué something cute, but not too cute.
I made the bag out of some leftover cotton twill from a summer trouser project. It was a big scrap, but not big enough for a skirt that I could actually wear.
