I spent a little quality time with my fabric this weekend. We kissed and made up. It was necessary because I bought one of these.
As much as I really, really, really wanted one of these, I couldn't bring myself to spend that much money. Shoot, even what I spent on my much less expensive machine hurt a little. I don't like spending large sums of money, especially on one thing that's just for me. But it's done, and the store I bought it from has a really crappy return policy, so the new machine is mine. I broke it in this weekend with some new bags, though sewing bags isn't why I bought it (I wanted some bells & whistles for sewing clothes).
This is something that I've had in my head for a while. Eh, I think it looks cute, but it's way too fussy to make. I think this will be a one and only version.
This is my new bag. Yes, I made myself another new bag. Do you see a pattern here? I make myself a new bag, use it for a very brief time, then make myself another one, listing the old bag in my etsy shop for cheap. It works for me :)
I love this style of bag. Sometimes less is more, which is how I see this bag. I love how it showcases one beautiful fabric, with a surprise on the inside. I haven't decided, but I may make some more of this style for the shop. I'm trying to use up some of my stash, which includes some more of these handles. I think I need to go on a fabric diet - my stash is out of control! (let's see how long that lasts)
