Those gotta have but dont need things...

You know those little gadgets that when you see them demonstrating them, something inside you starts poking your brain "Ooh, Ooh, I want one of those!!!Gotta have it.." Here is one of those little but rather expensive things that I finally got to use...
It is a Janome even-feed foot (A tractor foot/bulldozer - so my 3yo son says), It comes in a swanky little case with a range of attachments for wide hems, rolled hems, bias attachment blah blah blah... Because it feeds both sides of the needle and tilts from side to side also I used it to sew these damn selvedges together.. I decided to incorporate these few into my quilt back so that I would never forget what the fabric was..
After sewing these few bitz, I have the most overwhelming admiration for the dress, chair, umbrella and other stuff that Jodie has made, honestly the patience level for this job is huge...This is enough for me..Just a strip to put in the brick road that I am making for the quilt back.
Anyway..I finally took a focused shot of the purse in the Sandra Banava fabric...made from the pattern purchased from Nicole Mallalieu...
here tis...
