Teacher Bag


It's been awhile since I've done a Teacher Bag. This one is a gift for a teacher from a college student who has been helping tutor the kids. The semester is over soon and she wanted to get the teacher a little something. How sweet is that!

It's been awhile

Diaper Bags, Diaper Bags!!


Apparently someone thought that the last Diaper Bag I made like this was trendy and cute because she up and ordered one! So here is hers but with the fabrics reversed. We can't have 2 of the exact same bags floating around now can we?


This Diaper Bag actually makes me want to have a boy just to carry this bag around! I absolutely love these colors together and the stripes.....oh I just love it!! This bag is a gift for someone, I just can't say who.....yet.

Purple Scrapping Bag


This is the other bag that Kathy's friend ordered from the April 13th post. I finally finished it. I made it a bit different from Kathy's so they can tell them apart when they are going to crops together and scrapping the day away!

10,000 HITS!!!

I have officially reached over 10,000 hits! I can't believe it! I want to thank all of you who visit my blog whether you are a regular visitor or a first-timer, I thank you. Also, to those who are carrying around my bags or have given my bags as gifts, thank you so much for being a part of my "business". I couldn't have gotten my name out there myself, so thanks!!

Ok, now for the good stuff.... I'm going to award someone with a 25% discount off a future bag purchase. How you can get this discount you ask? Comment to this post with your answer to the following question:

How many states and countries have I sent bags to?

The person who answers closest to the correct answer gets the discount. Sound fair? I'll end this little contest in one week, April 23rd. Happy guessing!!

Pink and Green Large Tote


I love pinks and greens! Nothing screams Spring better than pinks and greens! This bag was ordered for a girl in college and hopefully she can use it for anything and everything she has to carry around, it's big enough!

Another Purple Messenger

Darker Purple Messenger

The lovely Kathy who got the Purple Messenger and Scrapbooking Bag gave one of my business cards out to a friend and wouldn't you know that friend ordered the same two bags. So I changed it up a bit by using a darker fabric for the lining. Thanks, Kathy, for your advertising!

Mother's Day is Around the Corner

Don't know what to get Mom this year for Mother's Day? How about a quilted bag? Place your order soon as Mother's Day is fast approaching. Or drop a hint to the hubby and/or kids for your Mother's Day gift (thanks for that idea Pam, don't know why I didn't think of that myself). Now if I could just think of what fabric my mom would like for her bag......

Neutral Diaper Bag

Neutral Diaper Bag

Is it the season for babies or what!!! You all better get used to seeing diaper bags because I have quite a few to do. This one was ordered as a shower gift for a couple that doesn't know what they are having. I had no idea what to use that was neutral, either fabric I found was too girly or too boyish but I think this fabric choice was good, I like how the plaid fabric pulls out the light brownish in the bears. Ok, I better stop before I get too technical on you.

Trendy Diaper Bag

Brown and Turq Diaper Bag

This Diaper Bag I made last week as a gift from me, for a change. It was for a girl I've known for years whose having her first baby, a boy. I was so nervous when I saw my gift bag was next at the shower (I'm a nervous person but especially when people open something I made in front of a group, that makes me insanely nervous). I was thrilled when the Father-To-Be said "now that's a diaper bag I wouldn't mind carrying around."
