I am back in action sewing! It’s been a long weary year. We had a close friend who recently passed away from fighting a rare genetic cancer.

I put my business on the back burner as well as all his other friends had to help him with all his needs for the past 8 months. We all wanted to spend as much quality time with him before he left for a better place. He now is no longer in pain and I am sure is watching over us.

So I apologize for not being around much on this blog. I have started a few new designs to be made into new sewing patterns. Will be cutting and sewing and perfecting, then creating more patterns.

I just finished these two bags! These are already claimed! BUT…………..I will be making more!
The handles are leather and USA made. These are the ones I get from the ladies of Homestead Heirloom LLC. Got them a few years back at the Knitting Expo and have been waiting for the right project to use them! They are not cheap so I did not want to waste them on just any bag style!

I used upholstery fabric for the exterior and used a fun whimsical cotton patterned fabric for the interiors. Vintage buttons for the the top front flap for the exterior pocket which has a magnetic closure. Two open rear exterior pockets and on the inside, a cellphone pocket, one roomy pocket and a pen slot!

These bags areย  10″ Tall x 11 Wide x 3.5″ Deep

If your interested in one (above fabrics might no longer be available due to limited quantities), please email me!! mackerilla@gmail.com

These will retail for $140 with leather handles and $98 with fabric strap handles
