A few weeks ago I told you about my class at the American Quilting Retreat where I taught how to embellish the Mug-Wump block. After class I had another finished block, but what to do with it?
I added some wool and cotton strips to colorful binding making the block fit the cover of a large Yazzii bag. I stitched the block to the bag and appliqued dotted ribbon to cover the handles.
I added a beaded button-hole stitch along the seam line.
Beaded zipper pulls on the bag's exterior.
This beaded zipper pull spells out my name. Believe it or not, these letter beads are from WalMart.
