More Zippered Pouches

This is what I worked on today. Zippered pouches are so easy to make. There are tons of tutorials out there on how to make zippered pouches, but the best way to learn is by trial and error.

Stripey Tote Bag

I made another Stripey Tote Bag. These come together so nicely. I like that I get to use a lot of different fabrics. I also used fusible Peltex on this, so it's pretty firm.

A Place In The Sun

"Every time you leave me for a minute, it's like goodbye. I like to believe it means you can't live without me."

I watched A Place In The Sun with Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor on Sunday night. Everyone should see this movie. It is so beautiful. It's hard to believe that Monty was 29 and Liz was only 17 when they filmed this.

All in a day's evening's time...

This is what I was making tonight while watching The First 48. I love that show.

Stay tuned tomorrow. I'm thinking about having a sale.

Pictures of new purse

This is what I made on Sunday. It's a little different for me. I have so much fabric that I want to use, and I couldn't decide on just one or two fabrics, so I made this patchwork purse. It came together really nicely. I sewed the strips together first, cut the front and back panels to size, then ironed on the fusible peltex, which is really stiff, and sewed down the length of each strip for a little contrast.

Book Recommendation

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

I am back with another book recommendation. This time it is 'The Crossroads Cafe' by Deborah Smith. I think I will check out 'A Place To Call Home' next.

Twilight on DVD

Wow. There are so many different versions coming out of Twilight on DVD. I think this is the version of the Twilight DVD that I will be getting. 3 discs, plus a free download of the movie for my MP3 - I'll never be without my Edward again!!! LOL. And then I'll be looking forward to the Director's Cut Version...

I made 10 new zippered pouches and a new purse over the weekend. I would post pictures now but the cat has taken over my computer chair for the night, so I am here on my knees, and I'm just too old to do this for very long!! Oh, new Twilight pouches coming too.

Toot Toot

I don't toot my own horn enough. This is what I made yesterday. It is currently listed in my Etsy shop. This is a little different from the ones I made before. I made the band around the top in one piece, instead of 2 pieces like previously. I also changed it to one long strap instead of 2 shorter straps. It fits over the shoulder nicely without jamming into the armpit - which is always a plus!! I bought this fabric from Fabric Finders, and I found the same print in green at Hancock's last summer. It's a nice heavy duty cotton.
