WIP Wednesday - Where Did February Go??

Last time I checked, it was the start of the month, and now we only have a week left in this month...I know it's a short month, but COME ON!  I've barely touched my embroidery machine this week, other than making some white tiger felties, which are much cuter than the orange ones.
I think the tiger in white rainbow glitter vinyl is ADORABLE!

Cat-tastic Sydney Messenger Bag! (Swoon) And Professional Pouch

Following my pattern for making bags that feature a LOT of fun fabrics, this Kitty purse is definitely one for the books!  All the kitty fabric came from Dark Matter Fabrics (custom fabric) and more than half of them were out of print, so it was a struggle to find them all! Sydney (by Swoon) is great for featuring several different prints since it has a detailed front with a lot of pieces!
Do you like cats? A LOT?

WIP Wednesday - I'm Alive!

I survived! now to catch back up on EVERYTHING.  I still have 2 weeks to finish up my February list, good thing most of the purses on it are quick ones!  And I only have one order so far for March, might be a a little bit of a slower month where I can sew some fun stuff for me AND the kids!
Trying out a logo for my purses, it's an adorable feltie.  Orange isn't really my favorite color, so maybe white tigers?

More Magical Connie's Wristlets!

When I first tested the Connie Wristlet pattern for R+R creations, I thought it was a fun and fast project, but didn't know if I'd have a chance to make more any time soon.  Silly me, I should have known better!  Right away I had a few people contact me and the first one bought the test one that day, with others wanting to order their own!  The best part of doing custom purses is that even when I'm duplicating something I already made, each one is going to look a little different, especially with fun fabrics like these!
Definitely not identical twins!

WIP Wednesday - Flu Intermission

Thanks to getting hit with the cold/flu going around, not much is getting done.  Instead, enjoy these pictures of pretty fabric while I recover and try not to spread germs on all the orders...
The fabric of my childhood!

WIP Wednesday - End of January

Today is the last day of January, which means that it's official...the year is already flying by!  Somehow I finished up 2 purses last weekend, and they were fast ones, but sometimes I amaze myself!  Now if I could keep up that pace, I might actually sew through all my fabric before I'm 80!  (but I'll have bought more along the way to replace it...Ok, maybe sewn through all the fabric currently in my craft studio!)

Always Rosie (Swoon Pattern)

My final panel from the Moonbeam run was this amazing "Always".  It reminded me of the concealed carry Rosie so I decided to make a new version with it (not concealed, just pretty!).  The fabric is open for preorder TODAY so make sure to snag some of your favorites! (affiliated links)

Do I still love this purse after all this time?
