Summer Summer Summer

Hey Everyone,

It has been awhile since Bizzy Lady or Myself have posted. Sorry for that but the Summer is the time when Bizzy Lady and I are involved in a lot of activities. We love being outdoors in the sun and nice weather.

I cant believe that next Monday, July 10th will be my 38th Birthday. I’m getting closer to 40 but still look like I’m 20, which is a good thing. (Thanks mom and dad for good genes. lol)

My mother has been loving the purse that Bizzy Lady and I make and she has really gotten into the Cork Fabric. So for her birthday in June, she requested that I make her a purse. So I went through several purse patterns and she picked the design she wanted, Sew Sweetness Park West Bag. When then went online to Fabrick Funhouse Cork Company to find what color Cork she wanted for the purse.

So it was a few days late, but she was very happy with her birthday gift. I was very pleased with how it turned out as well. It really looks like it came from a department store.

Bags Bags Bags and 1 Table Runner

Hey Everyone,

It’s been a little while since I have written a post. I hope everyone is doing good. I have been making lots of bags, totes, wallets and finally got one quilt in which was a table runner.

Bizzy Lady and I was just talking this morning, that we have lost our creative mojo a little bit and we need to get it back to being creative. For me a have so many projects that I want to work on some that I have cut out already but just don’t know which one to work on or just motivate myself to sew period.

This is the table runner I made for a customer and she also sent a picture of her using it on her dinning room table.

Embroidery and Bags

I have been getting a lot of embroidery work lately. I embroidered a group’s name on close to 40 aprons. In the midst of commission work, I have been making bags. A new found passion (WHYYY! like we needed something else – bag hardware, vinyl, etc. where to put it all, building another stash). If you follow Diva Dane and I, you know we have been making quite a few bags lately.

Well unexpectedly, my embroidery work crossed over into my bag making. I have been getting requests for personalized bags and inscriptions. Below are 2 bags, one is a personalized bag and another with a message inscribed in the lining (retirement gift).

Product Review – TrueCut 360 Precision Circle Cutter

I purchased a new gadget a little while ago and over the holidays had an opportunity to test it out while making ornaments. Its the TrueCut 360, made by The Grace Company. It will cut circles from 2″ to 12″. Below is a demo and my review. I purchased it off Massdrop. I purchased it as a bundle which included the cutter along with a replacement blade. The Massdrop deal is no longer active, however, after some research, I found that Amazon has the cutter for about $25.00 and the replacement blades for approximately $5.00.

Here are the ornaments made from the circles  – Continue reading
