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.

More Projects

I finished another bag last night (: I love this fabric and I’ve made the handles a little bit different again. I tied the knot on the rope handles inbetwene the lining and the outer shell so you can’t even see it. There’s also two zippered pockets on either side of the bag. The handle is long enough that you can wear it messenger style too!

                                     

Yippee!! It’s finally Saturday! More sewing for me (: I’m planning on getting up a bit early since Hubby will be getting up early too. That’ll give me a good head start on more bags and hopefully a chance to work on my other blog!

New Items!!

I was busy updating my Etsy shop last night…The only bummer was that somehow I deleted one of my items this morning…Dang it! I clicked on it to edit it and then decided it was fine. I guess by not pressing the FINISH button I made it pop out of the shop. Oh well, I’ll just add it again this evening.

Lemon Shoulder Bag, Little Red Sailor Bag, and Plum Flowers (which already has 53 views!) are all up for sale in the shop! I’ll be adding the grey floral bag this afternoon as well as the Little Yellow Sailor Bag. And hopefully sewing another one tonight (:

We were planning on going camping this weekend but since the hubby’s quad is out of commission, we’ll probably stay home…and go to the Farmers Market (: I’m excited to go again since I haven’t been in a few weeks, but the thought of waking up so early doesn’t crank my tractor. I’ll get over it though 😀

                              

NOTE: Thanks to Tany, the bag I thought I’d lost off of Etsy is now found (was blind but now I see…) and it’s up! Thanks Tany girl!

Here’s another new bag I was working on last night (: My hubby likes this one better than the nautical bags I made in this style. I really like the handle on this bag, it’s super comfy and fits really well under your shoulder.

I’m going to have to take more pictures with the white background, I really like it!

New Design

I’ve been thinking about this design for a while now and finally had the time to sew up my first bag! I just LOVE how it turned out! I have a thing for nautical stuff, and this is just so perfect. I’m not sure if I will be selling this exact bag, but I’ll be making more along this line (not only nautical, but other looks too!) and selling them in my Etsy shop and at the Farmers Market!

                              

                             

                             

Ps: Note the grommets?? I used my grommet machine on this one and LOVE it!

Bag Party!

Well, last night my two guests arrived right on time (a huge feat for our little town). Unfortunately, I did something to my back so I was hunched over the whole evening, but they didn’t seem to mind at all as they oooh and aaaahhh over my bags. They just couldn’t get enough of them!

They each ended up buying a big KJ Bag and one of the ladies bought a Zippy too. It amazes me that I made $102.00 in less than 20 minutes!! But the best part for me is that they just loved my bags. It still blows me away that people adore something I made that much! I gave them a few business cards and they said they’ll be bragging about my bags to all their friends.

I told them to let me know if they ever wanted to have a little party with their girlfriends. Wouldn’t it be cool to have a regular home party with my bags? I’d just love it! To me, it’d be so much better than going to the Farmers Market. With a home party people come expecting to see one thing, instead of going to buy fresh veggies and then happening to look at my bags. It just seems like it’d be much easier to make a sale.

Yay for Etsy!!
