Sewing a little

I have to tell you, after all my bellyaching about the etching class, today I was able to tell that I spent so many hours in the print studio this weekend. Today in class I created a beautiful print! I just love it and can't wait to show you!!
However, for right now I want to show you another little clutch I made this evening.
I had gotten all these new fabrics, which are just YUMMY!! (In fact, this one would make a beautiful etching...)
Doesn't it remind you of the ocean? And then you open it up and there are the colors of a fiery sunset!
Whatever it may remind you of, if you love it, you can find it for sale in my Etsy shop by clicking here.

Tomorrow, I am going to print on good printing paper and hopefully remember to take a picture to show you!

In the meantime, I wish you a good night and a wonderful day tomorrow! I am so grateful for you all!!


  1. Oh how I wish I could sew! Love your clutches Silke! And yes this fabric reminds me of the ocean and of course pops against that beautiful vibrant orange!

    Good job with the side bar link for your painting for sale! ;)

  2. Das sieht toll aus, schöne Stoffe!

  3. Liebe Silke,

    wir grüßen dich aus dem regnerischen Bochum ganz herzlich

  5. Love the little clutch,but I can't wait to see your print!!

  6. I've been making little pouches too, but in a more simple fashion. I love batiks, and have begun a mini quilt project. I enjoy reading about your creative energy, process and products!
