August/September 2017 Creations!

My favorite time of year is back again! Fall and Halloween!! I have began making my fall creations including new Trick-or-treat bags, and I even made a new reversible quilted table runner…one side is Halloween and the other side is fall pumpkins!

September has been a pretty busy month for me…I have participated in two craft fairs/farmers market this month. One of the markets was behind the apartment buildings we previously lived in. The Markets were a lot of fun, and I hope I’ll be able to participate in some Christmas shows.

I have made several other bags the past two months, some examples are below! I have also finally updated my etsy site with several new listings!

New State, New Chapter

Well, this week is my last week on the East Coast.  On Thursday, I will be journeying to my new home; Denver, Colorado.  Although I am very excited about this new adventure, I will be missing Virginia where I have lived for the past 30 years.  I have included a few pictures of some of my favorite places located in Norfolk, Virginia, which is the last City I lived in Virginia.

New Creations with Old T-shirts

For the past few months I have been staying at my parents house in Elizabeth City, North Carolina until I journey off to Colorado next month.  One day, I was going through my closet and I saw some old shirts that I have not worn since high school/college.  Some shirts were too cute give away, so I decided to make tote bags.

So far, I have made one tote bag out of an old pink Candy Land shirt.  The inside of the bag I used regular pink cotton fabric, and then I cut up another old t-shirt and braided the material to make the handles for the bag.  I found this unique idea on Pinterest.  I am really impressed on how the bag and handles turned out.

While I have been staying with my parents, I have been trying to keep myself busy by sewing.  I have included a few examples of more creations I just made, including a Grumpy Cat tote bag and a few zippered pouches with faux leather.  I have also included these creations on my Etsy site.  Please go check these out along with my other creations!
