...or blog, I just took a little break.....
so here's a catch up post.
In April, I designed and created this purse for myself.
I've been using it ever since.....I really like this size and style.
It's large enough to carry a water bottle or book
(along with all the other normal purse stuff)
and soft enough to be comfortable not big and bulky.
The purse began as a jacket that I bought at a thrift store
for less than $5. Did you notice the buttons on the
front of the purse? I also enjoy the benefit of using pre-quilted fabric, saves a lot of time. Love up-cycling!
Around the same time, I made this cute little
cross body bag for a friend. It took more
time to select the coordinating fabrics and button
then to stitch it together. A fun little project.
After the month of April, my sewing machine got a little break
as I enjoyed some time outside with the flower gardens and walking. Apparently I was exposed to too much pollen,
came down with a nasty upper respiratory infection.
Seasonal allergies are not fun!
I'm finally feeling better so this week I dusted off the machine and made a few bags for a friend. I'll post those pictures soon.
I'm trying to stay indoors as much as possible
but today was a beautiful summer day.
Here's Ellie discovering the hidden kitty in the
vinca vine. Sorry Peaches, she's on to you!
No rest for the kitty while the little is around :)
Hope you had a great day too!
