Eight more sleeps till Christmas friends! Which means eight more days of making handmade gifts in Karen/Santa's workshop. I've done double duty so far in making this Dream World Bag, a gift I hope a friend would love. Dream World by Emily Winfield Martin for Riley Blake Designs is beautiful, soft, and oh so dreamy. I've been a fan of Emily for a while when there was no Instagram and only her lovely blog. Years back, she use to make these cute dolls which I saw on the Martha Stewart show and I was drawn to her whimsical designs. I can say, that she inspired me on my sewing journey. I have since made my twins Dream Animal fans, as this was the first book I've read to them when they were tiny babies.
When I first saw Dream World I was giddy. It is the softest, premium cotton, adorable prints, and uses gold metallic! I knew the exact materials I wanted to incorporate and gold was what on my mind. I used gold lame trims and gold thread. I'm not going to lie, it wasn't the easiest to sew with, but I like a challenge! I hope I did Emily's designs justice with my Dream World Bag!
Here's what I made:
