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.

This is my Indie Shopper tote bag in the fabric I designed of my dog Detective Tinkerton! One yard of either heavy weight cotton canvas or the linen canvas of this Spoonflower fabricย  is all you need for the exterior material. Then just 3/4 yard of what ever you would like for the inside. I used a heavy weighted poly denier. Or you can use a cordura fabric.

Choose Detective Tinkerton fabric or pick from my other designs!

Nice and easy summer top to make!
