Ta-dah! I made my own beatle bag. I was not super impressed with the pattern… the coolest thing about the bag is the inserts, which are in fact very cool.
Can anyone ever have too many project totes? I don’t think so! My friend and I spent the day sewing together at Piece by Piece and this is what I whipped up! Too cute if I do say so myself… 😀
I just love all the fabrics at my local quilt shop. I keep finding prints that inspire me which means I have to do something with them… namely… make purses! Not to mention I am in love with adding zippers everywhere. I used to be afraid of zippers but not now. In this latest hobo purse I put in three zippers and a pocket. After it was done I wished that the pocket was just another zipper. Ha!
On a glass note, you might be happy to know that DH got the WiFi working in my shop. (Can you believe I was living without it? No web access was certainly a bummer. It makes me so happy that he got it to work… he is so smart!) I should be out making beads again any day now. Alas… I guess I’ll have to take a short purse break. 🙂
I got this cute pattern and I whipped up the purse! Yeah! I think it is super cute. I love this type of bag to throw on when I just need my phone and my wallet.
Of course I threw on one of my beads… Now I need to go make a few more so I can coordinate with my winter coats! Ha! Or maybe a few Christmas presents… we’ll have to see… 😀
I added a little bling to my felted purse… I always like a little sparkle as you know. 🙂
I have seen beads EVERYWHERE this season. Hung on purses, jean belt loops, cell phones… everywhere! Well my favorite accent spot I have to say is the purse. You can see my purse below. I have to admit though that those large tabs are a bit heavy to lift around all day! The price we pay for fashion! 😀 Anyway, I’m working on making some light little add-ons to work as either a pendant or perhaps as a purse embellishment, your choice of course. I’ll have one later today with maybe another new auction… We’ll have to see how the afternoon goes. Happily everyone in my house is pretty calm today after the past festivities!! 😀
I just love my new purse! Isn’t it cute?!?! I think it is. I really like it because it is really soft but durable. Woohoo!! 😀 My real fantasy is to sew on lots of my little flowers all over it… wouldn’t that look cute? We’ll have to see if I get it together to do that though… I did just finish my woven necklace and I have to say I really like it… I’ll try to have pics of that tomorrow. What I like best and I find surprising is for such a bulky necklace, it is very comfortable… It is a bit extravagent. I guess I’ll just wear it to the park this summer since that is about as exciting as my day gets… heehee… Okay, gotta run. Have a great night!!
