I thought I should share a few of the things I have made over the years. This purse was made out of the first "pattern" I wrote for myself. I had a friend who had a bag she loved roughly the same size and shape and I tried to figure out how to make it. I actually cut a paper "craft" gift bag in half and used that to trace on my fabric. Then just measured some interior pockets and the strap. I used the heaviest interfacing and it wears and washes well. The interfacing will loosen some but it still holds it shape and the purse can stand on it's own.

I am new to blogging but lately I seam to have been sucked into so many great creative blogs! I have enjoyed seeing and reading about what people are creating. It inspired me to get to the sewing table and try something new! I have been sewing for about 7 years but never do clothes other than a simple hem. Well, I sewed two skirts for my girls. I love them- I hope when they are teenagers they won't be made at the pictures! Once I figure out what I am doing on here, I will try and post some pictures.
