Rita's Birthday

When making AnnAKa pouches I always had in mind creating one using "vintage" style fabrics with the addition of lace and beads - well here she is all ready and waiting for my friend's birthday.

The base fabric is calico/muslin, to which I attached stamped fabrics purchased from the USA  
                                                           Homestead Treasures on Etsy

My lovely swirly backing fabric shows a little of the quilting.  Some planing was required here choosing seams to sandwich the fabrics together. 

The pretty coloured threads are Lecien Multi Work 322, which are purchased either by skein or on spools and the beads are size 15.
