Sewing for Me!!

Well, I actually got to my own personal projects this weekend. I just had to post a couple of pictures to share, because it hasn't been happening that way for about 3 weeks now. I have been so busy keeping up with my bag orders and the steady demand!

I made this tote bag with some fabric that my friend sweetly surprised me with last week. I call the tote my rainy day tote because the fabrics look like a Seattle day, but brighter. I just love it!

And the flowers are a wall hanging in process. That is just the top, I am going to baste it and quilt it, hopefully start that this week, although I just got another large order for bags on etsy, YIPPEEE, so we'll see when I get back to the spring wall hanging! I keep joking that it might be done before summer starts. For now, I have an open wall waiting for it.

I also wanted to respond to a comment about my Oak Street bag pattern. I wrote that up last year, and have been putting off getting it copywritten. I would like to sell copies of it, I would be interested in selling it for your personal use in the mean time, if there is interest. You can email me, or comment here. Thanks for bringing that up, it's good to know that I haven't been forgotten!! Gotta get back to some internet research, have a good day!

Full, Full, Full

Wow! I finally filled up my etsy shop enough that I have 2 pages, yep, 2 whole pages of stuff for sale, 27 items to be exact. I am SOOO excited! I just finished posting 3 new small totes and 8 of those coffee cozies/drink sleeves I have been meaning to make up for months. Go check me out, it feels so good to be full, more opportunities for people like you all, my fabulous followers, to find something you might like!

Anyway, I am waiting for a couple more pieces of fabric and then I will have another bag or two to put into the shop. I have still been very busy, which is truly amazing. Just when I feel like I'm on top of everything, I get more interest or another order. It's fantastic to be me right now! Thanks for following and for your sweet comments about my bags, I appreciate all of you!

New Bags

Well, as I promised, here are some pictures of the new medium tote made with home decor fabric. You can see more detailed pictures on my etsy site. This new design is amazing, and I'm going to make one for myself when my fabric friend gets the new Amy Butler "Love" home decor line, can't wait!!! I continue to be crazy busy, but I have to admit, I took a short break from bags this past week to start a spring wall hanging for myself. I'm so excited, I will have to post pictures of that another day, as it is my other work in progress.

The rest of my weekend consists of bag making and more bag making, inbetween time with the family! I'm so excited because I have some pieces of the new Amy Butler "Love" fashion and quilting fabric line that I plan to use for small totes and a new Oak Street Bag. Anyway, it is getting very late, I should get going for now. Check back for more fun pictures and check out my full etsy shop. I can't believe I actually have 15 items for sale and more to add to it!!!!!!!

I'm Here

Wow, I can't even tell you how busy I have been. I have sold, or presold 11 bags in the past 3 weeks. There are these amazing women in the mom's group I attend twice a month, that are just eating up my bags! Everytime I bring some to fill an order, I get more orders. I'm trying to get a back stock here at the house, either in actual bags completed or just fabric to make as purchased, but because of this incredible interest in my hobby, I am just barely staying ahead of the game. I feel so blessed, I am in no way, shape or form, complaining about any of that!!! I'm just popping in really quick to give an update before I place my next fabric order. So, for all of you that are loving my bags, thank you, keep the interest coming so I can keep sewing!!! I do have a new medium tote bag/purse to show you, but I've only had a chance to make up the protype. I'll be back as soon as I can!!
