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 fabricĀ  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!

Cutting and Sewing!

Uncategorized

I try to schedule out my week with each day with a task.
Mondays are cutting days. I spend my day cutting out bags and getting them ready for sewing.
Tuesday and Wednesdays are for sewing. I try and sew up all the bags I had cut out on Monday. Sometimes I can make up to 10 a day depending on which bag style has been cut out. After 10 years of making my bags, I don’t need to follow a pattern and have an assembly line style of doing the work.
Thursdays are for computer design work. I spend the day working on my sewing pattern designs. I have 12 patterns and will be redoing the cover images for all of these and tweaking the instructions.
Friday! is my fun day! I play around with new ideas for bags or practice sewing clothing. I have bought a Singer Professional 5 serger/coverstitch machine. This thing is the bomb! A smooth running machine that can do it all. I am having fun with it. I will post my clothing items for sale on my second etsy page. http://www.etsy.com/shop/myfavoritefrock
