Hi crafty people,
Thought I would share with you a few items that I made this week (ok, a little more than just this week...). I am sending a few bags and pouches to a raffle for a professional association that I belong to, and I am so very pleased with how they turned out! had to share...

I have a fondness for the pin-up girls, they are just so sassy, so presto- flirty toteness. I crocheted the fringe and hand-stitched it (ugh- but I like the effect), and used a black ultrasuede for the bag. Not at all washable, but she will always be just as fabulous as she is now.


Thanks for looking and letting me strut a bit!

I adore pin up girls, especially when they involve art or crafty things.  This bag is great and it looks very well made.

Nice!  She's a *crafty* pin-up girl.

Also, I love the fringe and the fabric you chose for the lining, and the construction is really great, with so many pockets -- great bag!

Thanks Naomi! I appreciate that- I am hardly a professional seamstress, and often find myself quite frustrated with the details of these things... maybe there is hope for me after all!
