I’ve been working on these new cross-body bags for months among the other parts of my life. I had the idea of creating textural crazy-patchwork bag flaps and then decorating on top of the patchwork. Remember the glass beads and embroidery thread I posted about? I happily put those to use. Each bag flap is… Continue reading Newest Cross-Body Bags!

Last summer I experimented with making my own sunhat pattern. I was quite pleased with how the hat turned out! Because I was so pleased, I immediately began picking out fabrics to make another one.

The days swirled by, but I enjoyed looking at my tree with the pretty… Continue reading Mandala, Sunhat, Christmas Projects
I know it’s been awhile since my last post, but I am still crafting away here in between all my other life duties! I’ve slowed down on the mass-production mode I had been in; and I’ve enjoyed making unique pillowcases, sunhats, mittens, and granny squares for two different blankets. The following photos are of the… Continue reading Pillowcases! Sunhats! Mittens! Granny Squares!
