sew what

this last weekend i did a little sewing.....ok, maybe alot of sewing; but sew what you say?! i had orders for paintbrush/ pencil bags. this is a pic of my newest fabrics....super excited cuz i am loving the colors and those polka dots! who doesn't love polka dots?.....

i try to mix regular fabrics with hand-dyed fabrics and my personal twist with a ruffle and maybe some rick-rack. do you remembers rick-rack? that stuff. i remember being like 6 and having a handmade halter top (thanks Mom!) with rick-rack edging and rick-rack ties. i thought that summer top was the best.

each bag has a grab handle and those bright, happy colors that make me smile. i even made a custom bag out of an old t-shirt that some students had made for my mom. her bag is a bit more of a carry-all as i wanted to save the beet with the cute little mouse. i lined this bag with plastic to hold up better and protect the t-shirt in case something should spill.

interested in paintbrush/ pencil bag? they are $30/ each with free shipping if you are located in the US. leave me a message.
