20121011-163931.jpgThis design is called the “Jill”. Named after a dear old friend that has passed away since the inception of this bag. She wanted something long and lean to hold her checkbook and her wallet. So this is what I came up with. Since then the exterior pocket has been rounded a bit and the bag is a wee bit bigger! I think I will have to get the sewing pattern started for this bag design! πŸ™‚

Tis the sewing season begins!

I love these leather handles from Homestead Heirloom LLC in Wisconsin! Fabric is a chenille upholstery fabric I had laying around. I lined it with a fun cotton fabric!

Workin on sumthin!

20120405-172344.jpgI am putting together a newbie! I am making a carpet bag with leather handles. So far so good! I am one to just go for it and not make a muslin sample. I always either cut out a pattern as I go or write dimensions. This one is lined with some lightweight cotton from my pile of Alexander Henry fabrics. The exterior is a nice chenille blend.
I hope to complete it tomorrow or by early next week. Of course will post when done!
