I almost forgot...

How cute is THIS one huh?! It's actually fabric for a circle skirt (as the lady at Walmart so politely pointed out - insert eye roll here). Pshh. Not any more! I'm going to use this and a pretty black and hot pink polka dot fabric to make a needle roll. I'm hoping to be able to start on it tomorrow. :-D This will be a really fun one to work on. Fun fabric, a fun project AND it's a fun gift. Woot!

Cranked out another one!

Last Friday I made another purse. This time it was a messenger bag. I think I'm addicted. I wanted to make one for the craftster swap I'm in so I headed to JoAnn's. This fabric called to me. Really. I HAD to use it. The bag itself is black but when you open it this lovely little number pops out and says hello. :) It came out really well. There are a few little flaws but the unknowing eye would probably miss them, thankfully. I really hope SHE likes it though, since that's really all who matters in this case.

I did it!

Yesterday I made my first purse! It was a Jordy, from craftster. I found this fabric that my sister had and it screamed my friend Stefani's name so I knew I had to do something with it. I had been dying to try out Jordy's tutorial so it was perfect. I whipped it up in under 3 hours. I think I'm addicted to making bags now. I have this messenger bag in mind. I just bought some lining fabric for it tonight. I hope it comes out a good as I envision it!

I finally got my sewing machine working! The stupid presser foot would NOT cooperate with me but it's all better now and I can get back to sewing again! I have a lot of things to work on. The first thing I made was something for a swap I'm currently in. I'd love to tell you what it is but I can't yet cause it's got to be a surprise. I can tell you that I whipped up a little pincushion with the scraps though. :D Let's see what else there is.... I have a costume for faire to finish, a dress for Amanda's birthday party to make, and I want to make a couple baby bibs. That's just for now, but now that it's back and running I'm sure I'll come up with some more fun little projects!

Scanning, scanning....

Now that Snapfish has group rooms I've created one for me and Jeanne so we can more easily share our faire photos and such, back from our pre-digital days. What a pain! But so worth it. :-D I've been scanning for about4-5 hours now - a labor of love.
