Back again! Are you bored with me yet?

That's good, because it looks like I'm only getting started ... seems like I have been bitten by the "bag bug" and have made another.  My sister gave me a box of upholstery fabric (the cat "Sophie" is all mine) and I made my first bag with fabrics from it, my tote bag, which I… Continue reading Back again!

What to do with a box of upholstery fabric …

In my quest for the perfect bags, which seems to be a never-ending quest, I have been looking at plenty of styles and sizes, and learning a lot along the way!  My sister was kind enough to provide to me an overflowing box of upholstery fabrics she found while cleaning up and clearing out during… Continue reading What to do with a box of upholstery fabric …

I have to have the perfect Zippered Crossbody bag … (Part 2)

I have really been enjoying this project!  My inspiration was the Sallie Tomato Zippy Crossbody Bag.  I started it last post here and finished it just this week. There weren't many details to finish it off.  Let me show you how I did it ... I sewed in my D-rings for my strap between my two… Continue reading I have to have the perfect Zippered Crossbody bag … (Part 2)

I have to have the perfect Zippered Crossbody bag … (Part 1)

I used to buy more bags than clothes.  Every time I walked past a bag shop I would stop in.  After "just stopping in" a few days in a row, I'd finally buy what I had been looking at.  Now that I think about it, I pretty much always bought bags with the same "insides"… Continue reading I have to have the perfect Zippered Crossbody bag … (Part 1)

A simple, but necessary project! (And my #reSEWlutions!)

Perhaps you have seen these photos on my Instagram account?  It seems I can't crochet in peace - Simon will steal my ball of yarn away and Sophie will play with the length of yarn.  This calls for a simple, but necessary project! Perhaps you have seen this advertisement on Facebook or Instagram?  This is… Continue reading A simple, but necessary project! (And my #reSEWlutions!)

What can I say? I still had some denim strips left!

And I'm certainly not one to waste recycled denim!  So let's make another bag.  This one is not quite big enough to hold my iPad, not like the last one I made.  This one seemed to go together quicker too!  Perhaps it wasn't as "fancy" or perhaps I'm actually getting used to throwing them together?!?… Continue reading What can I say?
