Letting the cat out of the bag - err, making a bag that looks like a cat....

Open up and say, "ahhhh"

Here is 1 of the 2 gifts I actually made. This guy was a Christmas gift for my niece. He measures about 15" tall x 12" wide and I put a 2" wide oval on the bottom to give the bag a little depth. It was a lot of fun to make and I think he may have some friends that turn up at the farm market this summer.

Merry Christmas!

Is it lame to repost something, even if it was over a year since I posted this video?

I was on my way to pick up my last gift (a food item, so I wanted it as fresh as possible) and I heard this song and I couldn't help but smile.

I got purses - people...

I finally sewed the buttons on the bags above so they are DONE :)

I then went on to make a batch of Lazy Day Totes which I actually finished instead of leaving one little detail hanging out there for 3 weeks until 1 hour before I need them.

I will be bringing the whole lot of them (except for the couple that have already found homes) to Jennifer Bellin's Message Open House on Saturday 12/11.

Updates or should I say outdates...

Okay, so I have been meaning to post this for the last week, but anyway on Thanksgiving I met up with some friends to take part in the Oshkosh, WI Festival Foods Turkey Trot. in my case it was more of a Turkey Stroll, but I finished (not the very last) the 5 mile route!
If you notice my Etsy page is a little lighter, earlier in the week I brought some mittens, wallets, mini wallets, hairpins and coffee sleeves to 192 Main which is an eclectic gallery located at (drumroll please) 192 Main Street, Menasha, WI.

I also finally finished my larger version of the Double Flap Snap (still a working title, but why change now) bags, although I have not had the chance to take photos of them. I started a small batch of Lazy Day Totes which I am really excited about. I got some new fabrics and I am looooving the the color combos. Once those are done I have a few Christmas gifts to work on, I would tell you what they are, but I don't want to spoil any surprises :)
