Sweat Shop

I've been working hard on some goodies for the upcoming craft fair. I've made 10 card cases (they just need snaps) and I've covered some buttons (but need to do lots more) for some bobbie pins. This weekend I plan on making up a bunch of key fobs too. The fair is coming up quickly but I'll be happy with the little bit I have to contribute :)

I got the Sewing 2010 desk calendar for my birthday and it's great! There are lots of projects that I want to make - this was a great gift, keep it in mind for Christmas!

Back with a Vengeance!

Hello there! I can't believe I haven't posted since June! I haven't been sewing much either, so that's probably why. I'm hoping that with the cool fall weather I will start to sew at my former pace. I just finished a bag, which came out really really well :-) The pattern is from Jennalou Designs. It went together so easily. I did break 4 needles trying to sew through the thick interfacing, but it was well worth it! I love fusible fleece now too, I need to go get some more of that! The fabric is some Lacework and Lotus Dots from Amy Butler with a brown twill for the lining. I skipped the zippered pocket and just made one big patch pocket instead. Ok, here is the photo:
Next up - I'm doing a craft fair with one of my friends. I just ordered some supplies to make key fobs. I've been procrastinating about making anything, but I think I just need to make a few things and I'll be happy. I plan to get to work next weekend on some inventory so I'll be back to show some photos!
