My Current Bag

I need to stop finishing items at night so I can get good outside pictures!  ...Or, wait till the next day to use or ship the items and take pictures. ;)  This is the bag I am currently using myself.  I especially love that although the outside gives the impression of super fullness, the lining is not full and makes it very easy to find things inside.  It has four open pockets in the lining just deep enough to reach in and get what I need.  I do miss having a zippered section though.

Della Wallet Clutch from Swoon Patterns

This is the lovely Della wallet from Swoon Patterns.  It was really quite easy to sew up.  It was my first wallet sew and I really love the design.  I know it's difficult to see the pockets as I didn't put any cards or cash in to show them.  Each side of the identical with one long pocket in back for cash or check book and 4 card pockets.  Behind each set of open slot pockets, there is a large zippered pocket.  The zippered pockets are large enough to hold the newer, larger cell phones.  You have one pocket for your phone and another for change or other larger loose items you want to carry with you.  This wallet is perfect to become a clutch when you just need a little something to carry your necessities along with you.

New Projects

I've been posting more to my facebook page and have been neglecting to post here on the blog.  So, I decided I had better do that right away!  So, I'm putting together a few posts that will release over the next few days.

These four totes I did as Easter bags for my nieces and nephew.  My daughters were great to model them for me.  I have my own children's bags nearly completed, but they didn't get quite done in time for Easter for them.  They are excited to have them for piano books after spring break though.  I used a stitch and flip method on the outer bag and inserted a zippered pocket, open pocket and crayon holding pockets into the lining of each bag.  I plan to get a little tutorial with dimensions up on the blog soon.
