To Boldly Sew........

(A special "Thank You" to my hubby for letting me borrow his Kirk figurine )
Do you think the good Captain Kirk
did a bit of needlework in his down time
between saving the Universe 
and making out with alien goddesses?


Well I have a friend who is a MAJOR Star Trek fan
(you know, the kind of fan who wears the costumes?)
and she's been spending a lot of time stitching these days.
So what better gift to give her
for her birthday 
than a Trek themed project bag?????

Now where ever she goes
she can BOLDLY SEW :)

I used gold toned fabric with tiny stars 
and black linen for the accents.
I stitched across the top
and added ginormous gold rick rack.
(You know Kirk loves him some flashy gold rick rack)
I made the trek insignia out of wool felt for the zipper pull.

Thanks to Joann's for releasing the Trek fabric this year
I found the perfect lining fabric.

Happy Birthday Gena!!!!
(sorry it's a bit late)
