2 Down and So Many More To Go..

So I know I've been gone forever ~ but I am back and trying to be better about keeping up with things.

 I have been busy though. I made this set for myself just in time for the fall. Purse, wallet and snappy bag! I fell in love with these little owls and couldn't resist taking them home with me. Now I can take them everywhere!

The temps are really starting to cool off here and I'm looking forward to the change in wardrobe! Richard and I have been spending a lot of time both out in the backyard and our front porch which I recently decked out in red and turquoise!

 I've also been working on some new stuff for my Etsy Shop. I've been ignoring it as well ~ though fortunately I'm still getting orders here and there. Just finished some custom pillow cases for a customer. I think she was really happy with them. These two beauties are going in the shop today
I've signed up to do three craft fairs here in November and have had lots of people asking for wristlets. I have been making all kinds of bags, purses etc for quite a while now and this pattern is my own ~ derived from all that I have learned over the years. It has a little pocket inside and comes with a matching wallet. It's got room enough for the wallet (naturally), your phone, keys and a few more incidentals. I think it just may be a best seller. I am trying to decide how much to charge for them though. I'd love to get some feedback from you all though.

Hope so cause besides these two I've got about 20 more cut out and ready to sew. Everything from fun and funky to romantic to seasonal. I've also got a table full of fabrics waiting to be cut. I think I might be a bit addicted to making these.

I've even been playing with my "Go" cutter and some discarded jeans to come up with this cutie!
So drop me a line ~ let me know what you think.... I'd love to hear from you...

I'm always glad to see you posting, my friend! Your projects and fabrics are gorgeous - I hope you sell out of the bags :D I particularly like that denim bag with the birdy on it -- great upcycle project! I keep telling my guys I wish they'd wear out their work jeans quicker, LOL!

Love it all. I am glad you are being so productive, then I don't have to be.
