Bright Bag

A bright bag to show you on a bit of a dark day. Two new techniques for me in this bag, the magnetic snap and the slider on the strap. Neither of which was difficult, but it is fun to add something to a bag to make it even more useful.

Much as I like to make things just because they are pretty and it is nice to finish something, I like even more to create something that is beautiful and meant to be used.

The inside of this bag is like a party.

This one is spoken for (and not by the cat, despite what he might think), but let me know if you want one for yourself, or a gift for a friend. I have some others in the works!
Local friends, join me this weekend in Post Mills as I help Revels North prepare breakfast for the early risers at the Balloon Festival on Saturday and Sunday. Balloons launch between 6–8 am, but reveling of all kinds (offical and non-official!) goes on all morning. Admission to the event is free. Breakfast is $8 adults/$5 kids/free for little kids.
A lot in the works right now, so I’ll share more soon!

Owl Bags in Sunlight

I’ve been busy behind my sewing machine these past few weeks working on new creations for spring and summer. I have a variety of tote bags—perfect for market outings, picnics or trips to the beach—along with new, playful dolls and owls. Each item features all-cotton materials with colorful patterns. Take a look at the details in my work. With hand stitched collars and decorative buttons, my child dolls are perfect gifts for the little ones in your family.
