My friend Debbie and I are working together to make some cool one of a kind Chef Knife Rolls. For all the Chef’s out there that travel with their knives. Or for anyone who needs something to put all their expensive knifes in to keep them safe.
We are using vintage and recycled items in our bags. So they are all going to be one of a kind. All available on my ETSY page. Ranging from $55 to $75

Check them out! AND………….. also check out Debbie’s cool silk screened and applique T Shirts! For adults and children! AND……………..    Vintage items!!!

There is a website called Sewmamasew and she has some cool sewing tutorials. There is one that you can make a bag with a zippered pocket at the bottom of the bag to store the tote in when you don’t use it. AND! Turns into a wallet! Pretty cool idea!
Check it out here! I think I am going to try and make one! 🙂

I had ordered a yard of the fabric I designed which I have for sale on my SPOONFLOWER page. I reduced the elephants a wee bit since I thought they were a bit too large for clothing. So if your interested, you can order any of my fabrics I have on Spoonflower under Mackerilla!
