I did it!

I finally posted those bags to etsy, check them out here. This weekend I think I'm going to focus on making some coffee cozies to put into the shop. They seem like they would be very easy and quick. Then I want to start shopping around for some zippers to make travel bags. I can't seem to find a good deal on those, any ideas? I'm looking for 16" heavy duty zippers...

Well, I know I promised to post bags last week, but I have to say, I did the best I could, and I will be posting bags tomorrow. I have 6 bags completed right now, 3 small tote bags and 3 Oak Street Bags. I'm going to take them to show some gals tomorrow, I will post the ones onto etsy that they don't grab!

Projects Complete

I told you I was feeling motivated. I'm even posting faster than I have in months!! The computer is cooperating too, that always makes it easier! Anyway, here are my completed projects. The totes (Heather Bailey's Pop Garden & Amy Butler's Belle & Lotus collections) are going into my etsy shop as soon as I can remember how to make the files smaller. (I knew I should have written it down last time.) So, if you are interested, let me know. Hope to have them in the shop soon!
And here is the runner project I was working on. I don't know if you can really tell, but I machine quilted around the flowers (Heather Bailey's Pop Garden with Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks on the back), pretty detailed if you ask me. I was having so much fun, and my mind was racing to all of the projects I could use this new treasure for! Anyway, I need to get going for now if I'm going to make my mid-week deadline on the other bags. I still have to cut them out. Thanks for checking in!

Happy New Year!

So, I have to say, this year is off to a great start. Today is the day that I finally completed a project I have been wanting to do for months. I made 6 produce bags and a bag to keep them in. I am so excited about this project because I diligently take my cloth bags to the grocery store every week and it really bugs me to pull those plastic produce bags off the roll. Funny thing is, it didn't take much time or money, I just kept putting it off. Not this year!

I'm also giving a sneak peek at some fabric for my next project. My sweet husband bought me the free motion quilting foot I have been longing for since Mother's Day when he purchased my new machine! I'm planning to use the new foot on this fabric, not sure which design I will choose.

Last but not least, I'm working on some Oak Street Bags, and a couple of small tote bags to put into my etsy shop. My motivation level is up and I feel like it is time to start creating some gorgeous bags! They will be in the shop by the middle of the week, at least that is my goal. As always, wish me luck!
