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?

Magical Charlotte (Swoon Pattern)

The next bag I sewed up from the Moonbeam Color Me Potter strike offs (affiliated link) was one I've owned but never sewn (another one to mark off my list!) the Charlotte by Swoon.  This is a tote bag with minimal pockets (only one!!) but the shape and style to it more than makes up for the lack of pockets!
The colors are so bright and vivid in person, so hard to find the right backdrop to make them pop!

Soot Sprite Diaper Bag - XOXO by Lauren Pattern Testing

Have you checked out XOXO By Lauren's patterns yet? Her Boon Wallet is super cute and fast, and the Brownie wallet is even faster!  I was excited to be chosen to test her new pattern, a mini diaper bag style pattern, the Soot Sprite!  (Bag pattern will release Friday!)
