The past few weeks

I am so ready for spring. We have enjoyed some warm weather over the past few days, giving us all a little spring fever, and my fingers are itching to work in all of my flowerbeds. We have had a busy past few weeks, lots of friends, lots of work, lots of busyness. I have been working extra to cover some maternity leave and vacation- the joys of management. I haven't quite gotten into my groove yet, and every night I wonder how working moms do it. I actually have unfolded laundry in my dryer and dirty dishes on my counter next to the sink. My - how the might have fallen. We also had strep again this week for the bazillioneth time this winter, I had my first experience with a (polite) robber and that is just the tip of the iceberg!

But the good news is I finally had some time to sit down and sew and catch up on a few orders. Hopefully I won't lost my momentum because I have a show in a few weeks, and my sewing room is almost empty.

Here are some of the purses I finished this week.....

I think this is one of the cutest diaper bags I ever made.... (is it okay to say that about my own handiwork?)

This super fun market bag is made from towels I bought on clearance at Anthropologie.

Hopefully there will be more to come and a few to add to my Etsy shop.

very nice... like the diaper bag alot too! My oldest recently took a pink bandana and made a purse outa it, complete with handles and fringed. I tried explaining to her the next time she makes a purse we should think about lining it to make it stronger. So we found a free pattern online for a cute bad with a pleat down the front but it has 4 linings! Do yours have that?? Think it just might be easier to sign them up for some classes somewhere.

These are lovely. Have you thought about making pillows in addition to bags?
