Meet, The "Market Tote"

So, here it is, I couldn't wait to share it because I think it is so fun! This is the new canvas tote I mentioned yesterday, just finished tweaking the pattern and sewing these babies up! I'm calling it the Market Tote because I feel like it would make a great addition to your farmer's market trip, especially with some of the reusable produce bags I just put into my etsy shop! It's a single layer of canvas, with some raw-edged cotton fabrics added to give it some flair and a handy pocket. I am going to take some pictures and add these to my shop as soon as the sun comes back. Could be a few days though. Until then, I would love to answer any questions or take orders. Not sure how much I will charge just yet, still mulling that over. Enjoy these bright bags, especially if the weather is as grey where you are as it is here!!!

Something New

Just thought I would drop in and give you a little taste of what is to come. I have decided it's time to use some canvas and I'm loving the results. Stay tuned for a new bag design. I will post pictures in a couple of days.

Wall Pocket

In an effort to post some fun stuff I have been branching out on, here is the wall pocket I created for my own kitchen! I was fed up with the papers that sit on the counter and collect into annoying piles. It was time to figure something out, so I did the measurements and went to work with my canvas stash. I also used the red to match the top of my curtains on the other wall. I have been so happy with my de-cluttered kitchen counter and I always know right where to look for those papers that just don't have a home!

If there is interest, I could make these for the etsy shop too, let me know!

Pencil Rolls with Matching Bags!

Ugh, has it really been since November since I have posted? I am so sorry that I disappeared for so long. I have been sewing, not as much as before, but different projects here and there. I think of getting on and just posting pictures, maybe I will try to do that more often.
Anyway, I really wanted to share these SUPER CUTE gift sets I have been working on. I made up my own pattern for a colored pencil roll with a matching tote bag. Of course the tote bag was a breeze, since that's what I do best, but it took a little bit of measuring and thinking to get the colored pencil roll right. I'm thinking about writing a simple pattern and selling it in my etsy shop. Time will tell if I get to that. So, just had to share the pictures, if nothing else I want to make some sets up to sell in the shop.
I have also been working on some more produce bags and new aprons that can be used for gardening, crafting, teaching, vending, whatever you can dream up. Head over to my shop and check out the new items! Also, canvas bags to come in the shop, soon!!!
