WIP Wednesday - And So Ends Another Month

Bring it on, March!  I'm ready to bust through the next month and stay on track...I hope!  I feel really blessed that I'm getting in repeat orders and new orders, just need to make sure I don't overbook myself!  Fortunately most of the recent orders have been for 'quick' and small projects, but those are the ones I procrastinate on thinking they won't take long to finish!
Now available on Etsy!  You can even custom order your favorite characters!

Middle Earth Ramona (Swoon)

Oddly enough, it's rather difficult to find Lord of the Rings purses.  There is some fabric out there that is from the movies (digitally printed images) but finding one that is 'cool' enough to become a purse is pretty rare.  When I came across the preorder from Affordable Fabrics and More for this awesome Middle Earth map, you know I had to jump on that!  I have it in several different colors, but I think the green and tan (aged parchment!) is probably my favorite.
Batman is disappointed because there are no good swimming holes marked

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!
