Still Sewing...

Since I started this blog with intentions of mostly showing what I've been sewing, I thought I better do just that!

I've actually been sewing quite a lot. Over the last month I've been averaging one purse in just under two days. This might not seem like much to some but considering most days I have three kids home all day, I think it's good enough! :) Right now I'm focusing on sewing for the Mill Race Folk Festival in Cambridge, Ontario. They have a crafty area and I've rented a spot. It'll be my first fair so I have no idea what to expect. I just want to make sure I have enough product to fill my booth!

A few weeks ago I also did a custom order for a friend of my sister. She wanted a slouch purse in an Amy Butler laminated cotton. I was a little nervous about sewing with this fabric but I found a great post that gave a lot of helpful tips. I didn't particularily enjoy sewing with it but I think it turned out quite nice!

I also did some more Buttercup Bags. I've been making these bags the longest and I still love them. This is the style of bag I carry everyday, although I do have plans to make myself a new purse soon :)

This is my favourite of the bunch

I also made 8 slouch bags in the last couple weeks. Here's a few of them.

I also recently ordered this fabulous pattern from Lil Blue Boo on etsy. I can't wait to make a few for my girls! Of course, I've never sewn with knits so this will be another learning experience :)

Happy Sewing!
