Dotty Mini-Folly

Magenta Polka Dot Mini-Folio

How about this for loud polka dots!! Ash, this one's for you! Finally, after almost a year of making bags, you will have one of you own! This bag is SO Ashley, even my 3 year old said to me this morning, "that bag is perfect for Ashley." How funny! Oh, sorry the picture got alittle crooked, I was in a hurry.

Black and White Diaper Bag

Black and White Diaper Bag

This is what I've been working on the last few days. I had an order from the lovely Miss Katie for a Black and White Diaper Bag and here it is!! I like the idea of this bag, it can be used as a Diaper Bag for boy or girl and can be used into the toddler years when you still have to carry around all kinds of stuff, change of clothes, sippy cups, snacks, the list goes on. I hope you like it, Katie!

Polka Dot Florence

The other day my friend and I went to a fabric store that I had never been to. We were looking around and didn't really see anything that really caught our eye until we both spotted a polka dot fabric that was in the decor fabric remnants. We both immediately loved it!! I don't usually use home decor fabric, I have but I mainly use cotton quilting fabric but this fabric just needed to be made into a bag!!! So after looking at for 2 days, hearing it calling my name, I have made myself a bag with it and I LOVE IT! I can't wait to go somewhere just so I can use it! Oh and no worries for those of you who love it, too, I have more!!!

The 100th Bag

Blue and Neutrals Florence

Can you believe that I have now made 100 bags? Ok, I really don't have much to say about this bag other than I LOVE IT! Too bad it's not for me. It's for the lovely Nancy who wanted a bag to go with her new khaki coat. I think this bag will be perfect for that new coat!!! I just can't get enough of these flowers, so be ready, you will all be seeing more!

How's That For a Flower!!!

Brown and Turq Florence Flower

Steph, you finally get your bag!! The poor gal was eyeing up the Small Tote with the flower that I made way back for the Autumn Stroll. She came to the Stroll only to see that it was gone already then I had to tell her that I didn't have anymore of that fabric left. Well, after finally having the fabric back in stock, here is her bag, bigger and better!!! This may be my favorite flower!!

Got the Blues

Blue Small Tote

This is a Small Tote that someone custom ordered with two long straps. Sorry that the pictures got dark, I tried to fix them but for some reason they didn't seem to brighten. The blue is much brighter and prettier in person!

Leena Bag

This is the No Name style that I came up with the other week and I have now named it the Leena Bag. Thank you to those who gave me some ideas, I appreciate that!! This bag is for a lady who wanted something blue so her granddaughter and I chose this style and fabric. She also wanted a long strap so she could wear the bag across her chest, this is a cute style for a strap like that!!

Scrap-Away-For-A-Day Tote

In the Very Large Tote post, I mentioned that it would be great for a scrapping bag. So I decided to show you what my bag looks like with a lot of my scrapping stuff in it.

Scrap Bag filled

As you can see, it holds quite a few paper packs. I am a CTMH paper pack fan so that is what all the plastic envelopes are.

Scrap Bag filled 2

It holds my paper trimmer, my CTMH double scrubber (it's hidden in the right pocket)some ink pads(there's about 8 in the right pocket) and stamp sets as well as photos and whatever else can be shoved in there. I just wanted those interested in a scrapping bag to see it filled. This is how I take it to crops. Of course I can't fit everything in it, I have way too much stuff for that. But being semi-organized with what I'm scrapping at the crop helps me to take what I need and not everything including the kitchen sink!!

Blue and Green Rebecca Bag

Blue and Green Rebecca

Jen, this one's for you!! I hope you like it!! I love how all these fabrics compliment eachother in this bag. I don't know what it is lately but I've had a few requests for blues these last couple days. Is it winter that bring out the "blues" in everyone??

Ideas Anyone?

I am looking for ideas from you all. Since I have some time now to just mess around with different styles and things, I'd like to know what you would like to see. Is there any type of bag or maybe color schemes you'd like me to try? I am open to suggestions! Comment back with your idea or email me @ Thanks a lot!

I figure it's time......

I took a bit of a break from bag making, I figure it was the holidays and all, it was time. The other day my "new apprentice" (my husband) and I made this little bag. I was just messing around with smaller bag ideas. What do you think? I'm calling it The Little Handbag.

The Little Handbag

This bag I actually made back in November with the last of the brown and turqiouse fabric and for whatever reason didn't post it. For those of you who don't have my styles now memorized, it's a Florence Bag. FYI, I do now have more of that fabric!!
