Sweet Harmony Progress

I have started the sewing of the Sweet Harmony Handbags.
I am doing the bulk of the sewing on my older Necchi mechanical machine. I think that it is a bit more heavy duty to go through all the layers of this project. I have it threaded with an all purpose white thread.

My computerized machine I am using for any of the colored topstiching and alternating between the spring green and berry red colors for the 2 bags as needed.

The pictures below show step by step progress. enjoy!

  1. They are looking really nice! You have a wonderful design sense. Can't wait to see then finished product!

  2. Thanks for the progress ... beautiful work.

  3. Designing and quilting a handbag with plenty of pockets has been on my To Do List for years. I'm always amazed at how quickly you complete your sewing projects. The bags look great.
