Wow. It has been a heck of a week. I think I have set a personal record for things sewn. I've got the battle scars to prove it. I had two custom orders to work on this week as well as a self imposed deadline to create a new Buttercup bag. I also decided I needed to make dust covers for my sewing machines. I may try to come up with a little tutorial for anyone interested in making a quick and simple cover. That's if I can find the time! I'm finally finished, for now. . .
First, the piece de resistance: A new Buttercup Bag! I'm really proud of this one. Tackled some new techniques and learned a few tricks. I will be adding this to the shop tomorrow.
Until I can come up with a better name, I call these "Lady Business Bags". A friend asked for little bags in which she could carry her tampons, liners, etc. and I made these for her. I got all crafty and added some pockets inside to keep everything nice and neat.
Last, but not least is this top commissioned by a fellow mama friend for her soon to be 4 year old. While ultra-girly, lacy things are quite a departure from my usual style, I really enjoyed making it. Next week I will work on some capri pants to complete the set and finish off the tie on the top. This same mama friend is also a budding photographer and will be sending me some pretty photos of this outfit being modeled by her little girl.
What else do I have planned for next week? More purses! I'm addicted. I've found a new pattern for a larger, tote style bag. Since I've got new fabric arriving tomorrow, I'll have to try that pattern out. Some of that fabric is destined for cute dresses and I still need to make up a pair of little boy pants. Wish me luck!
