Pursed, bags, diaper bags, church bags, call it whatever you like they are just CUTE!

This one has long strap so you can where it diagonally across your body.
This is a bigger bag. A binder can be put in this one.
This is more of a small purse like bag. Bright and cheery
This is my own purse-onal purse. I carry it around and people tell me they like it a lot.


I make bags. All kinds but recently have kind of found a niche of bag sorts. I make them all sizes, colors, add different things to them, and I love it. I sell them at a local store. $25 is the price. I usually choose super eclectic fabrics to make them stand out a little more. Here is a few of my samplings. My samplings were really above. I will get this blog thing figured out someday. Anyway, I am willing to do custom purses for the same $25. If I have to ship it I will add $5 for shipping. I put a pocket with two sides to the pocket. If you want one and I know you do, let me know. Happy Day!

Quilts


I sewed a couple of quilts for humanitarian efforts for my church not too long ago. This is sooo easy. Once again I went through my fabric box or in my case boxes and got out all the plaid fabric. Cut it into 6 inch strips and started sewing. I decide how wide I needed it to be. I was making a full size so it was 72x86. They wanted them a little short. I would sew strips together until I got to that width, cut and start a new row. Kind of wild but I liked it. Would make a great picnic or in the car quilt.

So sad...


I started making the heart quilt on Moda Bake Shop with my variations and about a third of the way through my sewing machine broke again. So sad. But I have a picture of what I got done. It is so cute. Instead of ricrac like they show, I gathered ribbon and sewed where the ric rac goes. I love it. I also did a color theme of brown, varying shades of pink and white. It is very easy to make. So even if you know how to sew a little, I think that you could do it. The other things is, instead of buying a jelly roll and a charm pack, I went through my fabric and picked out all the mostly coordinating pieces and just used those. That way I am doing it very inexpensive and using my scrap fabric too. You should try it. I don't know what I am going to do with it since I am not having a baby. I may give it away or my keep it for myself for when I do. Who knows. I actually cut out two sets of the hears so I could make two if I wanted to. I just might.

Still around

I just wanted to tell the two people who occasionally look at this that I am still around. I have been super busy with a variety of stuff and have crafty concoctions brewing in my head. Just need to finalize them into the item. Hopefully in the next few weeks I will get something going on here. Until then...get your craft on and show me what you've got.
