Work, Etsy, and Fun Bags

I have a busy week coming up. Work is sending me out of town to a sunny, warm location, so I can't really complain except for the lost hours on my sewing machine. Even though I was Miss Stuffy Head this weekend, I was ambitious with the scissors. Since I will be away, any orders placed Mon-Friday from my Etsy shop will be shipped Saturday.

This is my Monkey from the MonkeyTravelClub. He's been keeping us company for a few months and I finally got a chance to take a picture of him for Ginny's flicker club where you'll find more adopted monkeys. Usually Monkee is sitting on top of our microwave, but every once in a while he helps me with my sewing. The best part about Monkee is that he stays where he is put. :)

I made this bag awhile ago. It was my first attempt at a baby bag that my friend wanted to make. This bag finally made it's way to a happy mother-to-be today. ( Single digit days now!) The lining fabric was given to me and at first I didn't really like it. But when I was rearranging it landed next to the denim pile and magic was born. I love it because it doesn't scream baby. It's a bag that will multi-task for her.

  2. Okay - is this head cold transmitted by blogging??? Cause you know I had the same thing! I was in bed most of the weekend - Ugh.

    Hope you're feeling better!

    Adorable monkey!

    And I too, really like that patterned fabric paired with the denim - very nice and she can use it for more than just baby stuff.

    You make great bags!

  3. I love the denim bag! You have become a bag-maker extraordinaire. :D I am too chicken to try magnetic clasps... but they make the bag look so professional.
