My brands will be of course Mackerilla for my Mackerilla brand sewing patterns and bags. Santa Cruz Bagworks for my new high end bag designs. Still in the works but I do have my SCBW large tote available.

Next is Gimpy Pets of course with all my pet related products. I will be hopefully a vendor in the upcoming Spring Dog event. I donate a percentage of my sales to senior and disabled pets in need.

Still time to get crafty before Christmas!

Are you still looking for ideas for gifts? Are you crafty? Can you Sew?

Well homemade gifts are always fun for me! I like to make simple gifts for friends, neighbors, postman, favorite shop owners, etc……………
Something like a nice Santa or Snowman adorned cookie bag, stocking or handpainted tin or a box and fill with your favorite cookies.

Simple gifts that can be used every day like soaps, oven mitts, knitted caps are always a daily reminder to the gift receiver of how wonderful you are! 😉

Most of my Mackerilla sewing patterns are pretty easy to make. So you could make up some wine totes and journal bags? Or make up some of my Tote styles and give them to your people on your holiday list. Their is still lots of time to make these items and more! 🙂

For other Mackerilla Bag designs, check out my ETSY page for what Sewing Patterns are available! Also I have some of my little zip pouches , kids caps and more up for sale!

Also you can contact me and see what else I have. I have loads of totes in many sizes available that I have not posted online. Price ranging from $34-$58
