New Creations and New Displays

I hope everyone had a spooky Halloween! The Holidays are just around the corner and coming up fast! I had my first holiday craft show this weekend at the Washington Street Community Center in Denver, and the show was a success. Walter built me a new display for my bags and it worked great!


There are a few more bags I made in the past month, including more zippered pouches with my photographs, and a plaid wool tote bag.

I am also preparing for another holiday show coming up in December!

My Photographs on Bags

Lately, I have been taking some amazing photos of my previous trips and hikes. One day I discovered a website called Spoonflower.com, where I can upload my own pictures and have them printed on fabric! Once I receive the fabric, I have been making tote bags and zippered pouches with my printed photographs! The first tote bag I made were from a couple of pictures I took on my Paris trip. I made an instagram collage of pink roses and the Eiffel Tower. I thought this bag came out great.

The next two tote bags are pictures of flowers I took during my hikes here in Colorado and in Michigan. The first bag is a collage of lilies and flowers, and the next tote bag is a close up picture of the Colorado flower.

The two zippered pouches I made were from pictures I took of the Colorado mountains! The first picture was from back in Fall. I thought the pictures printed on the fabric perfectly. I have been interested in photography recently, and I love that I can show off my bags and my photographs at once!


Spring is Here!

I can’t believe it is already April! After having a very warm February and March, it feels like spring came early this year. Nothing new going on in the last couple months, just continuing to stay busy with my sewing. I am excited to have my first craft show of the year coming up in May, so of course I have been preparing for that. I have included examples of creations I have made the past two months, including more Colorado bags, a CO cross-body bag made with up-cycled denim, and Broncos bags!

Other bags I have made including a Honey Bee drawstring bag, Paris Zippered Pouch with up-cycled denim, and another sugar skull bag! More updates on the upcoming craft show and other new creations next month!
