Holiday Orders

First I would like to start with some feedback I got from the pink ballet backpack. It always makes me feel so good to hear such a positive response from something I made. So I had to share :

"Amazing seller. I had a custom order (ballet bag), and she walked me through the entire process, asking the right questions along the way. If you don't know your canvas from your duck cloth, worry not. She is very understanding and was willing to work with my needs, despite my deficiency in the knowledge of craft materials!"

She even sent me a pic of the bag with her shoes in them...which I was so worried would not fit:

I can't remember whether or not I mentioned The 6 Pack. It was an order from a family member (thanks sis!) for a matching set of bags for her sis-in-laws & their daughters. With this one I had to design the bag first...I had 2 styles, a tab top and a zipper top. She went with the zipper top. Which is a good thing since the tab top needed some reworking.

These were the results:

I really like this design and plan to make more. But unlike these, the lining will NOT be canvas. I lost count of the broken needles littering my work area. The shorter, more structured, handles are fun too. I am not sure if you can tell by the pics on Sis's couch, but they stand up on their own.

Now to get my rear in gear and start sewing again. I think I was sewn out last month...I haven't touched my machine in over 2 weeks! I think that's the longest I've gone without in the past 2 years!
