it's bag time again

Well, I have been busy,busy making. Working my skills and honing them in. I need to find another sewing machine that can handle thicker fabrics. Right now my little Brother is struggling.. But 'm going to ask God any way for a more industrial-like machine. To get the job done better. This machine is forcing me to be more precise and I guess I better learn that before I can move on. I'm not here to write elogquently or get published or have someone give me tons of looks. This is heart job. A job where I do what comes from my heart with love and happiness. I always get happy when I sew so I"m going to sew on..
this is a nice set of Poppy's. They can be used for makeup, jewelry, findings, hair ties, supplies, clips, change and what ever you need a place for, it can be put here. I gave this set to my gfirlfriend Jacquline Myers for her 50th birthday. I had to wait for her birthday to post them so she didn't see them. Happy Birthday all year Jackie.. Not sure if I showed this one, I may have posted it but it's a real winner. I was proud to carry her to Church on Palm Sunday. She has a lot of room in her and is what I can and East West Design. you can see all your goodies right there and not have to deep couch sitting.) do you know where that line is from? Any way here is what is called Maisie.I love her spacious area and her Elephant trunk walking. She is cotton and Vinyl and all this fun..

Teardrop ready

I have been wanting to make a bag this style since LLBean first came out with out. I finally came to a designer that has made it and Now. I have it. ... It's a great over the shoulder, carry on your back or crossbody purse. It has 3 inside slip pockets and one outside zipper pocket. I made it out of cotton duck and had to be Eggplant. I searched and searched for the right color and it's great. I have umbrella colorful fabric for the lining. Hope you enjoy and will come to love. This purse comes in 3 sizes. One for small children, medium for on the go and large for all that you have to carry.. This pattern is by RLR creations.

India BoHo

I do love Indian prints and Ethnic prints. They are so colorful in ways you would not think colors go. When I purchase these it like a bouquet on the table. Just gorgeous all together. This is called an Indian Boho bag. I like hobo bag and comfy easy going. Not stiff. I can't do stiff bags. They make me think of a being constricted and that's not good. So, I like to make care free loose fitting bags. This fit the bill. Now find more beads so I can give it another go around. Here is India..

Well, I made a little Limelight and it is very light. Still not my go to because it is a bit bulkier then I want. Nice size wise but still not THE one for me. It has 3 card slots and a clear vinyl slot for your I.D. then it has a coin slot in the back and in-between the accordion pleats. Pattern by RLR

Double Dutch clutch

No, that's not the name of it but it has 2 or 3 or 4 ways to use this bag. First as a regular bag with handles you can easily put it over your shoulder. Then if you have to go shopping, strap on the adjustable shoulder strap and keep it moving. If you then want to run into a restaurant and don't want a purse at all, grab the little front pouch and have at it. It comes off and has it's own zipper compartment. Then put them all back together and enjoy. This is a design by RLR Creations. Love it and the fabric. I chose the Green vinyl from Lee Ann's Home fabrics. Great to work with. What more can I say, love fun handcrafted with love purses.

Poppy Pouch

This is a fun one to do. Get some happy fabric and enjoy. It comes in 3 sizes and here is the large one. I chose the large one to hold all my cosmetics that I leave on the bathroom sink. Not any more. No more mascara, combs, or blush on the bathroom sink.. They are all in Poppy Pouch. Yes, I'll be making more of these just in a smaller size to carry in my purse. It sits on it's base. Has gussets so your insides won't fall out and it's sturdy on the sides to not be floppy. So, here is poppy.

Harriet Sew-A-Long

Completed today by adding the rivets to the handles and there she is.
This was a great way to work along with people from everywhere. All doing the same project. At peace. I love tapestry fabric and the contrasting vinyl. Learned again about linings. This one has a great solid bottom and oh, I forgot to take a picture of that. (them) Here is the side (s) that open up to give you more room for that bottle of water.
These were way fun to put in. They have a little curve to them for cuteness. There is an inside pocket, of course for that loose change.
Really felt one with this bag. Some fabrics just have great energy and you work well with them and some I've struggled with. She measures. 10” tall 12.5” wide (at bottom) 4.5” deep Tote your day to day items inside this adaptable mid-sized bag. Featuring two side zippers, it quickly converts from a rounded everyday purse to a spacious tote. A top closure flap keeps your belongings secure. A zippered pocket offers added storage for your cell phone or other frequently used accessories
