I've been on a major, major crafting kick.  My living room looks like a bomb went off in the craft store.  My boyfriend ate dinner on the floor last night because there just was no room left for him at either table...whoops!

Thanks to the Jordy are her amazing tutes...her basic tute was the orginial inspiration for this bag.  I have my own moderately different system now but credit where credit is due.

I digress, I've been making tons of purses...hoping to start selling soon.

I try and never make the same bag twice and here are 4 new ones...

Green1 - running eighths fabric is just the best...it adds so much character with no extra work!


Green2 - the fraternal twin of Green1 (the other half of the running eighths fabric)


Red/Pink Paisley - the outside pocket looks like its crooked, but it's just how the purse was sitting, I promise!


Brown/Green Paisley

Nothing concrete yet...I just bit the bullet and registered for a domain name and when I have a spare moment I'll get around to putting something on the website.  I've contemplated ETSY...just feel like I need to get some more made so I have some "stock" to sell!

Thanks for the comments!

I love that green fabric as well - I bought it to back a work apron that I'm making for a friend.  It's very handy and smart of Joann (that's where I got mine) to sell.  They had several cute colors.

The other fabric store near me is selling a different sort with the running eighths - you could take one of each no problem.

Very nice bags - nice shape and the construction is perfect.  Good luck with your business.
