New Projects

Its been quiet here lately, but I’ve been busy with my machine. I made several Liberty + faux leather bags and did a little sale on Instagram. While I forgot to take pictures of most of the custom bags prior to sending them to their new homes, I did manage to get some of the extra bags I made. I only have one left, but I wanted to be able to show them off here because I love how they turned out!

These were such fun to make. I was working with a bowl full of Liberty squares, and just mixing and matching in whatever way felt right at the time. The possibilities were only limited by the number of zippers I had on hand. But to be honest, I feel certain that more zippers will be making their way here before long because I could make these bags all the time and not tire of it.

The bottom section of most of the bags is a gorgeous saddle color faux leather. It feels wonderful and has a very convincing leather appearance.

I did have a few requests for the real thing, so for those bags, I was able to find a leather that was a bit darker. It feels like butter and was a breeze to sew with.

This bag (^) is the only one I have left, which is now listed on Etsy. I’m sorry they didn’t make it on here before selling out, but if you have real interest in purchasing a bag (or several for Christmas gifts) you can contact me via Etsy and let me know what you want.

Also in the works is a custom boy quilt with this precious selection of fabrics. I’m just obsessed with the way these fabrics play together, and I’m excited to show you the finished quilt.

I’ve also had a request for a tutorial on attaching straight-grain binding, so that will be coming soon. And on that note, I do occasionally have requests for tutorials. If you are serious about it, please don’t hesitate to request a tutorial. I love putting together instructional posts, but with so much already out there, I struggle with knowing what sort of information you feel is pertinent and needed. Let me know if I can help!

Thanks for dropping in.
