boy's embroidered tote



Yesterday I finished this bag for my son, it turned out a bit bulkier than I wanted. I used heavy weight interfacing for strength but wish I had used lightweight. Anyway, you live and learn!

embroidered tote



Here is a tote I just finished for one of the girls to use as a library bag. It is made of calico and lined with poplin. I embroidered a little girl on the front. This is my first bag of my own design - I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out!




Welcome to my new blog! I hope to use this space to keep track of my projects, which are many and varied, as is the case with most crafters! I will also be selling on Etsy in the near future, so you can see details of those projects here too. Some of my craft interests are painting, drawing, sewing, embroidery, doll and bear making, bags, cooking and baking.. I could go on! I find it hard to stick to one thing at a time, so I thought this blog might help prevent a mountain of UFO's too. I love reading other people's blogs and I hope you find this an interesting and inspiring place.
I'm always happy to include anyone in need in my prayer intentions, just leave me a message!
