I can't wait......

to show you all the new styles I came up with! There are three of them, so far. The Lila, Violet and Corina Bags will all be revealed to you blog watchers after my first Bag Bash in July. I really would love to show them to you all now.....but it's going to have to wait. I also got a few new fabrics that I'm really excited about using. The Lila Bag is one that I'm interested in hearing opinions on, my hubby's opinion doesn't count for much (sorry to say, Dear). It pains me to not be able to show anyone..... Guess we'll have to wait and see!!

Boy Diaper Bag


I made this diaper bag as a gift for a friend having a baby boy and forgot to post it after the shower was over. So here it is. She loved it and wears it well!!

Black and White Flare


I decided to try a little something different than the same vertical or horizontal strips of fabric. The lady who ordered the bag told me to do whatever with black and white so I did. I hope she likes it...... It looks so much better in person.

Just so you know....

I just wanted to let you all know that I may not be posting much for a bit because I'm working on bags for my very first purse party. I'm calling it a Quilted Bag Bash. My first one is in July so I am currently making bags for that and not posting them so it will kind of be a surprise for the gals who come to the bash. My plan is to try and do one bash a month so I have time to make the cash and carry bags plus those that were customed ordered. Please let me know if you are interested in hosting a Quilted Bag Bash. The hostess gets some good rewards! I will be posting the bags that are randomly ordered so you all have something to look at!



This Mini-Messenger is for my lovely sister. For her birthday in April, I told her I'd make her a bag, whatever she wanted, for her gift. So this bag is it. It's only about 8.5" x 8.5". I hope she likes it!

Patchwork Diaper Bag


I am in love with this Diaper Bag!! These colors are so great together! I wish I could come up with my own patchwork that was as cute as this. This Diaper Bag was ordered by a gal who has gotten a few diaper bags from me now and given them as shower gifts. What a great gift giver!!

Checkbook Covers





I am really getting into these little accessories! I came across a checkbook cover pattern and couldn't wait to play around with it.

The Joanie Bag


I am really starting to fall in love again with brown and turquoise!! I'm so excited about this bag because it is a gift for a girl in my church youth group. She really liked my bags so a lady from the church ordered this bag for her as a surprise early birthday present. I think she even wants to remain anonymous. I can't wait to see her reaction when I give it to her!!!

This bag is the Joanie style but looks a bit different because I used on strap instead of two.

White Joanie Bag


This all white Joanie was ordered for a wedding in November. I was so afraid I was going to get it dirty while I made it so I washed my hands thoroughly before I touched it everytime. And my kids had orders not to even go near it with any part of their bodies. You know kids with their cheese curl fingers and all.......

Glasses Case


I am trying to venture out into other things besides bags so when I start to do purse parties, there would be some smaller accessories to go with the bags or just a smaller purchase for someone who already has a bag they love. What do you think of this Glasses Case?

Brown and Pink Diaper Bag


Who doesn't like brown and pink? I have been seeing a lot of brown and pink themed things for baby like bedding and strollers and all and it's about time!! This diaper bag was ordered as a gift for a gal who is having a baby any day and is doing the nursery in brown and pink. I bet that will be soooo cute! I really like the way this bag turned out. It is totally trendy!

My Fabric Storage

Ever since I had a sewing room, I have wanted a shelf to put all my fabric on so I wouldn't have to rummage through a big bin. Well, the other day, my hubby came through for me!! He came home from work with a tall shelf that he and a friend made. It was exactly what I had invisioned without even telling him what I wanted ! I was thrilled! So, here is all my fabric, well, most of it, on the shelves. I didn't have the motivation to fold each fabric nicely, I just put it on how it was in my bin. I'm so excited!!
