Friday "Stuff"

This is one of the bags I recently made and gave away. One was a gift to a truely generous heart and the other was a birthday present to a co-worker/friend. The results of these giftings is that I am being encouraged, prodded, poked, shamed into doing more sewing of totes to sell.

I have had in the back of my mind for a long time now to have a "craft table" about Thanksgiving at work to sell different things. So this year I guess I will do it. I can do the tote bags. I have a simple pattern for for heat pads filled with rice/flax seed I can use the scraps from the bags for. I have some book/journal covers I want to make also. Have a stash of beaded book marks already.

So, in addition to the additional Ren Faire sewing I have in mind to do, I will throw this into the mix. Writing and sewing will now be my life! That makes my decision not to plant a garden again this year really nice. I will have a couple of tomato plants, some basil, but not the 50-100 tomato plants I have had in the past. I am going to support my local farms.

Well, need to sort through my sewing on the table and get "organized".

  1. This is a beautiful, beautiful tote. I think I have close to 100 purse/tote patterns... I've never opened or used. I always wanted to sew those and aprons!


Thanks for commenting. It means a lot.
