Here is another tote I really loved how it turned out. There is heavy weight stabilizer for the interfacing which keeps it shape. I do have to get the key clip for it still but in the mean time, here is what I made.
I love the way this turned out. It will be great for the beach or shopping, even toss in a couple of diapers if you have a little one. For me there will be little fishy snacks for my guy. But I think this is a style I will stick with for a while.
This is a large tote made from 100% cotton from Amy Butler's collection. I pleaded the front and added a wide shoulder strap which tappers to a thin strap for over the shoulder. I lined this bag with a thick interfacing to give it shape.
Magnetic snap for the closure, zipper pocket
3 pen pockets and a large pocket for your cell/keys or for what ever
Another creation from today...man my shoulders hurt. Planning on hitting the gym soon, back to the bag. This is a simple tote with a zipper pocket inside and a toggle key clip - to hook your car keys to. Nice size bag.
Again I had another set of these bamboo handles and I found a great use for them! This is the same size as the pink bag 12x12. I am thinking of what handles to use for the larger bag...still thinking...
The bamboo handles I had stored away for about 5 years. I just was about to toss them thinking I had no use for them. But then I dreamed...that is right I dream about sewing! (Yes I am a dork) So this is what I 'dreamed' about...this is a small bag about 12x12, I am planning on making larger one in the future.
Mum's the word here! I used spider mum material to the body and had a lot of fun creating this bag. I have to say it is one of my new favorites to sew. I just need to make the pattern larger to fit all my stuff...this is a great bag for those women who don't have to haul all the baby toys and diapers...but a larger one is in the works, so those with little ones (like me) can toss everything in the bag, yes even the kitchen sink if need be!
Since I created an apron for my son, I decided to share my creations at the local store just down the road from me. I am on a roll now! The apron will fit toddlers 2-4 years old. I haven't settled on a price yet...I am just on a sewing kick right now!
My instructions were, "I need a black bag like Katie's where I can toss everything in it, bright colors for the inside" This is what I created. I think it fits her personality. I love it, and the material on the outside has a flower print black on black very subtle but a nice look.
My mom needed a black handbag. So unbeknownst to me, my mother bought this fabric and asked me to sew it...so this is what I created. And as I was posting this picture I noticed I forgot the button. But I will quickly add that and then hand it to my mom on mothers day.
My family was running in the 100k Pullman Relay and my son was coming. I was planning on bringing my laptop since I can plug it in my car, but I didn't have a cover for it...so I quickly sewed one right before we took off...an hour later and VOILA!
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!)
