Another Day Another Bag or Two


Last night I made another Ginger Blossom 241 Tote which I’ve just listed in my Etsy Shop.  I used Ginger Blossom fabrics for the outside of the bag and Amy Butler for the inside.  Hopefully I will make another one tonight!

Babushka sewing!

Finally the sewing bug has bitten me again!  I’ve been quite busy sewing over the last week or so and once again, I can’t understand why I haven’t made anything for so long.  Well, I do know why, life is just so busy these days and being stressed over running our business, financial pressure, 3 young kids… The silly thing is that when I sew, I kind of ”escape” from all the pressures of life and go in to a happy world of colours, fabric and whilst sewing think of other things I ”just have to make” which makes me feel really happy from the inside.  Best of all, I sew whilst the rest of the family is around me, it’s a hobby that I can do at any time of the day and the family is well used to the noise of the sewing machine, the huge amount of threads & scraps everywhere.  So, here is what I’ve been up to this week!

My first ever ”purse frame” purse!  This was really fun to make, but I need to make a few more to prefect this!

Feb – April

I’ve done it again.  I’ve let life take over and not blogged for months and months…  I’ve had a very rocky start to 2012, which has slowed my sewing spirit down a bit.  I thought I might just do a little photo summary of some of the things that I have made since February till now, and hopefully will get back to normal from here.  

I designed this bag myself with the intention of writing a pattern for it.  It didn’t happen, but I have used the bag a lot and might still get around to that one day!  

This was another bag that I made up from some Amy Butler scraps that I had lying around!  

I also made another Sweet Pea Bag, this one in Amy Butler fabrics, mainly Midwest Modern
