Pete and are are winging our way to fabulous Hawaii in 2 weeks time, for 3 weeks of rest and relaxation.

Bernina. V Janome

I have a new sewing machine.... YAY... I have been using Bernina for the last 2.5 yrs and have just traded it in for my new Janome 8200 and I LOVE it. It has a huge 11 inch throat... And sews like a dream.

So I just had to make a quick play quilt

A little Nautical

Love the color combination here, add some colored leather, some shiny hardware, and a lovely tote emerges

On my IPad

Noodlehead trail bag

So couldn't help myself I made one of each size and the another small one with piping

Pigskin leather and Navy Cotton Duck

I have been looking for a fabulous Backpack for when we travel. The ones I loved on Etsy were expensive and made overseas. I then found this unique pattern by Colette Patterns, the pattern is called Cooper and comes in 3 different versions. The pattern recommends using waxed canvas/cotton as well as Duck Cloth, or canvas. I had a pigskin hide, so along with some Navy Duck I made version2 , the backpack. It's the perfect size and can't wait to take it to Hawaii in December.

New Nappy Bag

New Nappy Bag all ready for Sale in my Ebay Store


Same Fabric Different Bag

Same Fabric Different Bag.
Loved this fabric, I first made a large carryall with it and decided I hated it ..hahaha.. so I deconstructed it made these two smaller ones and loved them. Sometimes it turns out that some prints are perfect for a smaller bag... who knew... well I do now.
The satchel type has lots of pockets 2 external and 3 slip pockets inside it has a substantial flap with a magnetic snap to close. This one is a made to order and I have done quite a few in the style now...and they are quite popular, so I might make up a few more for the market... $35
plus P&H or free pick up

The other one with a rounded bottom , has darts sewn into the seam with gives it a bit of body, I tried it with the flower.. umm not so sure.. so I took it off, this cute bag is just big enough to store your phone, a small purse and some girl essential, it does not have any pockets and will sell for $25 plus P&H
