Santa's Helpers

Girls with Christmas Tree

These are my silly girls, Isabel, Kylie and Miah. Just thought some of my faithful fans might like to see what it is that gives me gray hair already in my 20's...... They are cute though.

Gift For My Sister

My sister, Korin, has been hinting around about a school themed bag for awhile now so what better Christmas gift to give her than exactly what she wanted! She was thrilled with it and I was thrilled that she was thrilled.....ok, enough about being thrilled. Hope it suits you, Korn!

Merry Christmas!

I hope everybody had a great Christmas and I am glad to hear that those who got some of my bags as Christmas gifts really liked them, so I'm thrilled about that!! My Christmas day went well, the kids all got what they wanted and my wonderful husband got me a gift card to my favorite clothing store, a new awesome crock pot and he even got me some new sewing supplies. Oh and fyi, he actually helped me sew a bag last night. And I don't just mean cut or marked fabric which he has done before, oh no this time he sewed! I was sick but needed to get this bag done as a gift and my husband came through for me and sat at my sewing machine and sewed for the first time and did a pretty good job at that! I think I found my new apprentice!!

Anyway, hope ya'll had a great Christmas!

This is the Florida Bag. It's only the second one I've done in this style. I wasn't too sure about the first one I did (you can check it out here) but I like this one! Of course, brown and turquiose makes everything better!! Des wanted a cell phone pocket in the inside but on the side so that is the second picture. Hope you like it!!

Answering Keeperumbc

Hi keeperumbc! You commented on the Purple Patchwork Tote and I just wanted to take a moment and reply to you. Congrats on the pregnancy! I have posted some diaper bags in older posts, just so you can see the style, the last was posted on October 12, it's the Care Bear Diaper Bag. The diaper bags run around $55. Let me know if there is anything I can help you with!

Very Large Tote

Ok, Ladies, this Tote is made for a teacher to carry all her school supplies but think of this.....a Scrapbooking Tote!! I made one for myself back in the spring and it is the perfect size for your paper trimmer, 12 x 12 paper and other supplies. This tote has two inside pockets, one is great for that paper trimmer and the other I have my stamp scrubber and stickease and other embellishments in it and then I carry a ton of 12 x 12 paper in it as well as stamps and ink and pictures of course! Think about it! I'll call it the Scrap-away-for-the-day Tote! Thanks Veronica for the catchy name suggestion!

I'm still here...

I know I haven't posted any bags in a while but I'm still around sewing, sewing, sewing. This time of year is just so busy and of course I had to fit shopping into my schedule and not just shopping for fabric either!! I can't believe how fast Christmas is coming. It feels like just yesterday I was at the Autumn Stroll getting my name and business out there and now here it is, less than 3 weeks away from Christmas and I have had orders, orders, and more orders! I even dream about bags in my sleep! Anyway, here are the latest bags I've made. I am currently working on a very large tote bag as well so hopefully I'll be posting that one soon.

Rebecca Bag
This one is actually not as narrow as all the other Rebecca's. I tweeked it so it would be wider.
