Drumroll, please... My latest creation! This is a messenger bag I made within the last week out of leftover Heather Bailey fabric. I designed the pattern, so if I was really smart, I would have taken photos during the process so you all could use it, but I didn't. Oh, well. I'll probably sew another one soon and make some sort of a pattern then. I realized a few flaws in it after it was finished, so it's probably better that I didn't make the pattern this time around anyway.
If there's anything you think I could do to improve it, please leave a comment!

Da Studio

Just a couple months ago, when I was talking with a friend, she got me thinking about a place for all my crafts. Before then, i'd been crafting in my room, at the kitchen table, on the step into our family room, in other people's rooms, etc., and I didn't have a space to make a mess and leave it. I mean, not that I need a space, but just for others sanity and convenience I thought it might be nice. So, after brainstorming long and hard we started building... or should I say my dad started building a studio in our storage room. It's about the size of a large walk-in closet and that's the way I like it. But my brother calls it 'the cupboard under the stairs', and when I'm in it he calls me Harry Potter. Oh well, at least I don't have to sleep in it.

A New Trend?

My little sis was doing a project with googley eyes yesterday & a random idea came into my head. Why not put googley eyes on my Converse? (which I love!!!) So I turned my favorite shoes into lovable characters. I attached them with tacky glue so I can take them off or glue them back on easily. Feel free to take this idea and maybe we'll start a new trend.
