Sewing Again...Finally

It's been quite some time since I have posted anything other than a Wordless Wednesday on this blog. Why? Well, because I have not done anything. Well, nothing creatively speaking anyway. After a week or so of non-sewing, I took hubby's advice and just "took January off". It was nice, but now it is hard to get back into the swing of things.

One of my goals/ideas for this year is to make things other than bags. And to only make a select number of styles. I narrowed it down to backpacks & clutches. I may play around a bit with them. Like with the clutches, I may only make fun & funky & embellished ones rather than the simple versions. Or just one funky for every 3 simple. Something like that. Anyway....
Here are the ready to be assembled backpacks ... exterior print is the top of the two...
