Expandable messenger bag! This is a custom design by my friend Tara C. She needed to have a larger bag with the fabrics she hand picked for her baby who is due Jan 2010.
The best thing about this bag are the never-ending pockets. I sewed 6 inside with the contrasting fabric, 1 zipper on the back with a flap hiding it, 1 pocket on the front flap, and on the front of the bag under the flap 2 pockets and a pen pocket. Whew!
Here is the side profile of the expandable bag when it is tied up
Here is the bag when it is not cinched up - I can't wait to make myself one of these bags - and it is a large bag!

Made some pillowcases

My mother asked me to make this for her stepdaughter. She is a bit emo and it also helps that she has the swallow tattoos on her hips.
My mother also asked me to make these pillowcases for her stepson-in-law. He is also is very much into emo and tattoos.

Finally something for me! I have been struggling with colors for my bedroom and I found this! Thank you mom! Birds and orange! Yes I am weird.

My son picked this material out for his baby-sitter. I hope she likes it. (I had to convince my son she might not like cars, or trucks)
