Another sewing finish

After making my serger ort bag and zippered bag yesterday, I was creative in my craft room again today and made my first tote bag, woo hoo! It measures about 11" x 11" and is about 5" wide...hope that makes sense...and the handles are one inch wide.

Here are the two pictures of the bag -- the first is the outside of the bag and the second is the inside of the bag:
The bottom has a firm insert (cloth-covered plastic canvas) to help keep the rectangular shape.

Thanks for looking and for letting me share.

Hope everyone is having the type of week where it's easy to count your blessings. :-)

Sewing/serger finishes

I was a crafty sewing gal today! First, I made a large American Flag zippered bag with an aida insert:

And second, I made this cool thing that my serger sits on and has a bag attached by Velcro to collect orts and scraps:

I did most of the work on the zippered bag the other day but put some finishing touches on it tonight. The serger bag I started last night but spent most of the afternoon working on. I even learned how to make "box(ed) corners"! I do plan to make a similar bag/mat to fit the dimensions of my sewing machine.

Thanks for looking! Hope everyone is having a great week. I plan on posting more finishes Friday...stay tuned!

"O Beautiful" back from the framer

My stitching may not be perfect but the mat and frame job from my local framer is.

I love it! Sorry for the bad photo...there really isn't a light spot on the blue mat. It's just a glare.

Thanks for looking!

Now off to play in my craft room...what to do, what to do...maybe I should make more zippered cosmetic/sewing bags. I've sold quite a few already. Wanna take a peek?

The photo comments show pricing and details. Feel free to ask questions, especially if you're wanting something custom-made -- I'll see what I can do! :-)
