More for the fair.

I was actually productive last week. Yay!

To make my rounded corners, I use one of our large cereal bowls to make ’em all even and nice. Works well.

Lots of love for these sweet totes. Hand embroidered felt hearts are on both sides of bags.

I feel like this fabric reminds me of pimentos olives. And then, martinis, of course.

Modified messenger. I tweaked this tutorial. I like how the gussets give it a sharp, box shape.

Last week we three went up to the civitan community flea market. I kinda still don’t know what civitan is, but the flea market was completely awesome and I really wanted to buy like everything. I settled on just a few items, including these wonderful vintage glass buttons.

More wooden handle purses for the summery summer. I use this great online supplier I found via ebay. They are reasonable, and they ship quick.
