My sister's birthday is coming up and she desperately needs a new bag. She is the type of person who will wear the bag out till it dies and crawls away into the forest. Since her birthday is coming up I thought I would dip into my stash of fabric and see what I can come up with and here it is!
I used a wool plaid for the outside (old Halloween material from a pirate costume I made for a friend) And a cotton print for the lining - I know what you are thinking...dogs!? Well my sis, God bless her, loves...loves dogs and she is always rescuing them and then loving them so much she keeps them. So I thought it would be cute to have something personal in her special handbag.
Something about me...Mother of a 3 year old who is on a daily basis cracking me up. Half the stuff he says I am trying so hard to keep a straight face, and he loves to be naked...anywhere.
Enough about my funny son, something about me. I started to sew when I was little, my dear old mother taught me, and I just took to it like a duck in water.
Though sewing is a great stress reliever, I recently started writing a couple of Novels.
I have two YA novels which are...dare I say...about vampires. (BUT COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THEN THE EVER POPULAR TWILIGHT SERIES)
Also to add to the list I have completed 2 Romance/Chic-Lit novels.
I am trying to get them published, but as I found out...not so easy. (Fingers crossed!)
