Latest purse- will call the the "Jody" because my friend Jody brought me a purse she had bought and wanted me to replicate the style. I would really like to know where to get some nicer zippers- the ones from the fabric stores are just too plain for this! anyone have any ideas?

2 more bags...


2 more bags- I've had that piece of vintage bark-cloth forever and finally it spoke to me! It's a cute little bag! I'm on a little kick with the other style, too. It's a good way to showcase pieces of my vintage tablecloths and I usually don't have too big of a piece to use after cutting around all the stains and holes.

Just finished this yesterday after finding the perfect vintage button for it! Outside pocket from a vintage tablecloth piece- not much left of this one. A customer suggested outside pockets so I designed this. There are 3 pockets inside, too.

These are going to their new homes tomorrow-the centers of each block are pieces from pajamas from a woman who passed. I sure hope the caregivers who are getting these like them! They left fabric choices up to me- always a little nerve-wracking! Go to my Flickr to see the others.

The reason for the delay in finishing- I cut all the pieces out and then discovered there were set-in corners. I just didn't want to deal with those but after pulling it out again I decided I HAD to finish it! See- there is hope for those older UFO's we all have! LOL
