(This is also the cover of our upcoming
In case you can't tell, or just have to have more info, (from left to right) Elaine is modeling the cow cowl with elaborate frog closure and lined with deep purple satin. Same stuff as the original cow coat, by the way. In the middle, Sara is showcasing the cow spats or legwarmers that are adjustable by elastic loops and 1 1/4" purple buttons (5 on each spat). They are lined with b&w zebra print flannel. Last and certainly not least, Viv X is shouldering a cow purse lined in purple satin with a heavy duty reversible snap closing that is white on one side and black on the other.
While we're at it, Viv X is also wearing velvet pants she designed. Made from a velvet painting she discovered at a thrift store. Cool huh?
Well look at that.

Let's pause here and reflect upon what we've seen... ... ...
Okay, I have to tell you we were all shocked to find all these pressies from Sara: the starry cowls, the individualized ponchos and the gorgeously unique tote bags. Sara doesn't sew. And she did!!! We were proud to line up and wear them all at once. Here's to you SewSister!
And that's not all. There were Sara made jewelry creations and other surprises for each of us. Mine was the best of course. A huge package of antique big ole buttons!!!
Well, we got so caught up in the actual event that our documentation fell to the wayside. I'll catch you up with stills of the items next time. Apologies Elaine, everyone. I did read Sewing Machine Secrets from cover to cover the next day.
Oh, wait. I do have one blurry photo of me wearing Viv X's hand-made bag...
