Hi. Sorry I haven't posted in so long. I'm getting used to all of this! I have been busy sewing though. I created my fisrt bag without a pattern or directions a few weeks ago. The lady that ordered it showed me a picture of what she liked and told me what she wanted that was different and I did it! It came out just the way she wanted it.
I am waiting for a fabric order to come in and I will begin a diaper bag for an old friend, Tammie. She is having a baby boy in a few months and couldn't find anything she liked. I am hoping that I will have that done by July 31st. The day of her baby shower.
Here is my bag that I made to take to the International Quilt Show. This is also the design that I am making for Tammie's diaper bag.I made this purse in record time. A lady was visiting a friend and saw a purse I made for her. She wanted one of her own. She was going home to Tennessee in a few days though. She bought the fabric she wanted and I had it ready for her the day she was leaving! I have a handmade purse in Tennessee!                               This purse I made for my mom's neighbor, Donna. This is the purse that the lady from Tennessee saw and just had to have.This is the flower I made for my quilting bag.

My mom and I are going to the International Quilt Show in Long Beach this week as well. We'll be gone for four days. We're taking several classes to learn new skills. We are so excited!


  1. i know you said it was a pain to make... but that wonderland bag looks great in person!

  2. Thank you so much! I love that material and I am so glad it came out the way it did. It was so nice to meet you at the Quilt Festival. Too bad I didn't realize who you were!
