Sara's Bags

I was commissioned to make a knitting bag for my friend Sara, so I decided to do a bit of experimenting with it.

Well, it didn't work out the way I had hoped so I decided to keep it for myself. I put handles on it today so it will be much more useful. :o)

I love the pocket fabric!
the big pleated pockets inside seemed like a good idea at the time

Since the first attempt was a reject, Sara bought some fabric she liked so I could try again. This time I went simple and it turned out great! It's nice and big for those beautiful afghans she crochets!

I hope you like it Sara! It's ready whenever you are!

Flower Princess

I just finished the flower princess costume for my niece's Christmas present. I made the skirt out of an old duvet cover.
It turned out pretty cute! I hope she likes it. It kinda makes we wish we had a girl...

Skirt Bag

My friend Sally commissioned me to make a bag for her daughter for Christmas. For the fabric, she gave me an old skirt of her daughter's that she no longer wore.
I cut it up and made a really cute messenger bag out of it. I even took some of the fringe off the bottom of the skirt to put on the flap of the bag. I hope she likes it!

Chris thought it was so nice that he thinks I should offer to make custom bags out of old clothes for people for my Right Back At Ya store. Great idea honey! I think it will have to wait until after Christmas though. :o)
