Ta-da!

My first successful "purse."  I got a wild hair last night and busted this baby out hoping it would look like the picture I had in my mind.  It did.  Admittedly it's a little more country bumpkin than I would have liked, but I still dig it.  








Vacation pictures coming soon.

  1. You are constantly amazing me with your sewing skills. I'm at present trying my hand at sewing and was wondering what sewing machine you use or suggest. I just got a simple Singer to start out with but I'm less than impressed with it. Or maybe its just that I don't know how to use it...hmmm. Either way, I'd love your to hear your suggestions.

  2. Jazzy--

    Thanks. As far as sewing maching I have a Baby Lock. I had never heard of it before I went to the store to purchase it, but this lady was like "7 out of my 9 sewing machines are Baby lock.." and I figured she knew what she was talking about. It's not high end or anything, but it's not the lowest end either. I'm sure your Singer will work great.

    What kind of stuff are you sewing? Are you working from patterns or just messing around with some stuff of your own?

  3. My sister got me Amy Butler's 'In Stitches' book...love it. I'm just choosing from her patterns in that book what I see to be the most easiest projects and working up from there. I've been unusually busy this summer so I haven't devoted as much time as I would've liked, but next I'm looking at sewing some curtains and pillows for my living room. Right now, I'm looking for the right fabric. Thanks for the advice! I'll look into it! Oh and keep sewing--I can't wait to see what you'll come up with next!

  5. whipped it out??? I love that you do that. I have ideas stirring in my brain for months and I just don't do anything. I need to get my tail in gear....

    I love those fabrics. The inside polkadot is definitely a fav. I remember seeing that one at a shop and wondering if it would work in my Oliver's baby quilt. I ended up with a cream fabric with red dots instead of the opposite.

    very nice work. I love the pleats.
