Playing Catch Up

This has been a wonderful and busy Christmas season. I hope that you have enjoyed family, friends and good food as we have. I'm sure that I am leaving out some of my projects from the past month, but I've lost track. From what I can remember since November I've made around 20 placemat purses, 8 totes, 4 draw string backpacks, embroidered names on 6 throws, one baby set... and the list goes on and on. Thank you to all that have trusted me in creating that perfect gift. This is something that I love and hope that you love the finished product. I am looking forward to a great 2008 and wish you a very happy New Year!

My Favorite Color Is Light Tan

OK, my favorite color isn't really light tan... but I couldn't help but include a Nacho quote. I don't claim to take great pictures and this one proves it, but I loved this bag and wanted to include it in the blog. It's hard to tell but the leaf embroidery goes along both sides as well as across the top and it has tiny pearls places throughout the embroidery. I used bamboo and rope handles tied, of course, with ribbon bows.

Classic Black

This purse uses a black ribbed placemat, black with white polk a dot ribbon and a black wood handle.


Yep, it's a corduroy placemat purse. I used dark brown wood handles with inlaid beading and brown ribbon bows to add a bit a pizazz. Most purses measure 7.5" H x 13 x W x 3" deep.

Everyone Needs a Little Bling

For this purse I used the faux suede placemat and added some fringe and dark brown bamboo handles.

I loved this fabric by Michael Miller called Dandy Damask. This tote is very roomy and has lots of pockets for storage.

Take Me Out To The Ball Game

This full sized tote will make the perfect diaper bag. I used navy and red corduroy for the outside with red corduroy pockets over a cute baseball print lining.

Pink Paisley Mini-Tote

I must be in a paisley mood. All my new favorite bags have paisley in them. This is about half the size of the regular tote with all the great features of the original. It is fully lined in the paisley fabric with 6 pink pockets that wrap around the inside.

Ladybug Burpcloth

Who ever said that Ladybugs couldn't be green?

Snuggly Airplane Set

What a fun set for a little boy and perfect for winter with it's super soft and snuggly back.
