New Yummy Fabrics

I am in cloud nine right now. I got some new awesome fabrics and I can't wait to share them with you.  These are just SOME of them!! I have to think of names.  Hmmm.

These are good enough to eat!  I already made a bag out of the lime print.

Chocolate goodness. Can't go wrong with these ones. I especially like the top one. I wonder what will I name these sweeties. I have actually made a bag out of the paisley print.

Bright retro florals--they pop up everywhere. The top one I have decided to call it deja vu, the bottom one cherry blossoms.

So girly and preppy. Bubblegum pink, peach and lime combo. Top is pink lotus then the paisley is called sugar baby (yeah) but haven't thought of names for the two bottom ones.

Love this color combo--brown and spa blue. I am just lovin' all of them. 

Took me forever to do this post. I had trouble centering the images then I realized just get out of the edit html page and just do all the posting via the compose page which has all the icons at the top to do all the editing just like my website. Duh!

Have an awesome Monday everyone.

To zip or not to zip

It's just so lovely today--high 70s. I am 10 minutes away from the beach --maybe one of these days I can swing by there! Not today though I have some sewing to do.
Ever since I started making purses I had a lot of requests for zipper closure but I couldn't quite figure out how to do it. I mean a recessed zipper closure where the zipper is a couple of inches down not at the very top like my wristlets. The reason I like the recessed is it retains the purse's shape and it doesn't look funny at the top.
A year or so I go I had a request from a friend for a zippered closure tote. It took me forever to figure it out  but unfortunately I didn't make any notes! Fast forward a few months back I was back to square one. There are a lot of tutorials online but it is not what I wanted. To cut the story short I finally figured out and confident enough to add it as a closure option on the site. Yeah baby!Here are some custom ones that I made:

For my niece Kristen who loves animals and hearts.

For my sister-law's mom. I was surprised she likes zebra prints. I do.


These are custom orders.

The stripes one is for my mom and the other one is for me.


Close up view.

Have a nice weekend everyone.

Got my Groove Back

Don't forget you have one more day for the giveaway.

I haven't really added a lot of new bags last year but I am on a roll this month. I especially neglected Cheinna which is very popular since it is very versatile. An all around bag that can be used as a diaper bag, shopper tote, knitting bag and a school bag.

These are the ones that I have been working on. I have a couple more in the works.

Here's another view.

Also the Mikha bag needs some more added. This is actually oen of my favorites. I like these size for an evening out.

I finally finished two and will add some more.

Ignore the generic ironing board cover. That's my next project!

Till next time. Have a great weekend.

New Year Giveaway!!

As I am sitting here in my little cubbyhole my toes are just freezing. In Florida 60 degrees is cold but today is an unheard record low of 28 degrees! My sewing room was actually a part of our attic that is now connected to my bedroom on the second floor (we had to raise the floor a foot so it is level with my room). I still yet to show the whole room as only a portion of it is still not decorated/organized to my liking.Even with centralized heating/cooling system the temperature is extreme. In the hot summer months I mostly sew during the night and during the day when it is cold.

Okay for the fun part since I have sadly neglected my blog I am giving away one Yvette Gadget Pouch in Ebony and Ivory. Just go to my site and tell me your favorite. I will run this until Jan. 16 Saturday and I will announce the lucky winner here.
