“I look good. I mean real good. Hey everyone, come and see how good I look!”. (A quote, from Ron Burgandy…not really what I think of myself. But I sure do think my shop looks nice!).

Well, I just realized that this bag is no longer in the shop! I’ll have to go through my inactive items and re-post it. I love this bag. It’s so functional and perky! The print is so fun and happy, it’s a feel good bag!

The red bag I made (in the post below) was made as a diaper bag / purse, and this one could be the same! It’s big enough for diapers, bottles, a wallet, keys, and some baby clothes. And it has two exterior pockets to help with organization.

I brought a few samples of fabric to a friend to see if any of them were something she wanted. She chose this one and I was so excited to get going on it. Even though I was busy renovating our bedroom this weekend, I just had to make time to create this bag. The friend who requested this bag is expecting a baby in June and wanted the purse to double as a diaper bag.

Instead of using nylon straps, I finally had a chance to use the rucksack-like ones I ordered off of ebay ages ago. I sewed the top centre of the straps into tighter sections, which made them easier to sit on shoulders.

I’ve been adding new items to the shop! These mugs were so much fun to make, I can’t wait to make more! I would have gone to get more mugs today, but we were busy painting our bedroom (yay!).

I’ve also been busy sewing another bag today! This one was ordered from a girl at my old job, so it won’t be going into the shop. It’s so good to be back in the sewing room! It’s been a while, and it feels good to be creating more bags. There WILL be more in the shop soon, it’s going to be hard to stop sewing now that I’ve started. I’ll be posting pictures of the new bag asap. I’m really impressed with how it’s turning it out!

I was working on a new bag this weekend! There’s another one just about finished, but I ran out of O rings so I wasn’t able to put the handles on.

I was so thrilled with how this bag turned out though! I think it’s my favorite style so far. There’s three grommets on the top of both sides of the bag, as well as a 7″ w. x 8″ h. (aprox) pocket on either side. AND, this bag had an flat oval bottom, something new for my bags.

New Pocket Palls!

Meet Franke and Cass. They’re best friends. They love making mud pies and spying on spying on Cass’s older sister, Darla. Cass loves eating Maltesers, but Franke hates them. So Cass sticks her tongue out at Franke when she’s eating them.

                                                             Franke loves drawing.

                                                                Cass loves painting.

 

                                                       Franke also likes taking weird pictures of herself.

I’m in a Showcase today (: It’s the Fall Fashion Showcase, which I thought my bags fit into perfectly (: Make sure to check it out!

Phewf! Last night I was able to finish another bag that I had been frustrated with on the weekend. Who knows what I was doing wrong initially. Maybe I just needed to step away from the machine for a while. I went back to it last night, took apart what I had done before and started again…no problems.

Now to take pictures! My camera is completely craped out so I’ll have to borrow one for a while. So no pictures so far, but as soon as I can, I’ll have some up!

Can I Just Say…

That I had a crap weekend. I did. It was awful, everything that could go wrong with my sewing did…I sewed a bag for my hubby’s Grandma and it has to have been the most frustrating thing I’ve ever sewn. The thread was constantly breaking, the pattern wasn’t matching up for some reason, the needle bent once and broke another time…the list goes on. I didn’t even take any pictures, as soon as it was done I gave it to her to get it out of my sight (:

The rest of the weekend didn’t go any better, nothing was going my way (not that I’m spoiled!) and by last night I felt completely unaccomplished and bored. I couldn’t wait to get back to work today!

At least that means that I’m enjoying a Monday at work though!

I’ll be posting more today, I just had to get this off my chest (:
