My Latest Concealed Carry Purse in Mantis Green

(There are affiliate links in this post.)

Good Monday morning!!  I'm happy to say that here in MO I think Spring will be returning this week.  I hope that you too are beginning to see less snow and more Spring flowers!

Speaking of Spring....check out one of my latest purses.  I made this for an Etsy customer who obviously was longing for some Spring in her wardrobe.  (Okay-let's see how many times I can say Spring in this post!).  Sorry!

Quick Tip Saturday #4- Custom Bag Strap Equation

 (There is an affiliate link in this post)

Good Saturday, everyone!!  I missed posting a QUICK TIP last Saturday as my computer was not cooperating.  No worries!  I'm back today with a great tip for all you "want to be" handbag designers, me included.

I'm always taking notes on how to design your own handbag.  I've taken the Craftsy course, I check out books from the library, and I scan the internet.  While I do this, I'm constantly jotting down notes in my little sewing notebook.  Recently, I realized that I keep coming across little equations to help you figure out how to determine the size of different parts of your bag you are designing.  So, I thought I would share with you the ones that I have found.

Today, I will only present one to you, mainly because I can only handle math in small doses!  Plus, this is supposed to be a quick tip, so let's get going!

Fabric Options for Handbags in the Color GREEN

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
In honor of the day I thought I would share with you some of my favorite GREEN fabric.

Fabric.com is where I purchase most of my home decor fabric for my bags.  No, I am not an affiliate and I'm not getting paid for this post.  I just like their online store because it is easy to search for fabric, the prices are reasonable and you always get free shipping when you spend $35.00.  Oh, and they have great customer service.

Quick Tip Saturday #3: Create A Fabric Journal

My tip for today has to do with my love of two things: fabric and journals!  I cannot explain what it is about a beautiful piece of fabric (like the orange and pink one in the picture) or a brand new blank journal, that makes my heart beat a little faster.  It just does!

Quick Tip Saturday #2: My New Favorite Sewing Tool

I have a new favorite sewing tool.  No, it is not a great pair of scissors, or a great sewing machine, it is my new LINT ROLLER!

How to Add Fringe to any Purse Pattern

(affiliate links in this post)

I had a customer ask recently if I could add some fringe to one of the purses I make a lot, the Bella Bag (Pattern by ChrisW Designs).  I was hesitant at first, but I just had to yes!  I make at least one of these bags every week, so to have a chance to mix things up a bit sounded exciting.
