Cute Little Bag

I made this for my granddaughters...I found the jean purse at Wal-Mart in the craft section for $2.99 and I let them pick out the material for the ruffle and the bling.

The Margaret Sling Bag

My lastest made from a tutorial by Oh Fransson check out her contemporary quilts and sewing projects, patterns and tutorials.
I used cordoray for the out side and a brightly colored batik for the lining.

New Purse

This is a McCalls Pattern...I found it to be a little difficult following the
directions but it came out ok.
This was on old clip on earring that I thought was very dainty/pretty and matched the pink and brown very well.

OK, I started this blog sometime ago, thinking that I would put this blog together for an outlet for scrap booking and it went south pretty quickly.  I had not even sewn or sat at my sewing machine for probably two years or better.  Then about two months I started exploring handmade bags....blogs. Now I have become obsessed with blogs pertaining to handmade items in particular bags. To my surprise I have found some pretty awesome blogs...not only chalked full of ideas for bags and other things....but also some very interesting people. All this to say...I have searched and research but for some reason can't seemed to get organized and focused on starting my own handmade bags and other goodies blog IE...small business. Anyone out there with suggestions???
