I guess you have noticed my blogging has slowed way down, I have been very busy at the shop this past week. Mary has been getting lots of new fabrics, and patterns in.In addition to helping customers, I have been cutting and making up kits, this is one I will be making up tomorrow. Of all the sample quilts I have made for the shop this is probably my least favorite I'm not sure why I don't care for it. However it is one we get a lot of request for, so .
I did manage to get two bags completed, both will be shop samples. this one is made using a pattern called Purse-sonality by Stitchin Sisters, the fabric is Robert Kaufman. Isn't it a great bag?
It also has a easy little wallet to make,that is what you see sticking out the top of the bag. The curves make 2 hidden pockets on the inside. Fun.
This next one is also a shop sample I made this one using Alexander Henry Fabric, I just love the designs of Alexander Henry, however the bag was very difficult to make.
The bag has been on display only a short while and we have already had several offers of people wanting to buy it. But when the store is finished with it, it will go to my daughter. She travels alot I'm sure this wil be very useful for her.
She is going to Denver next month for a writers conference, she has ask if she could take it. It would be a big hit in Denver, don't you think? But Mary likes to keep them in the shop for about 4 to 5 months, it really helps sell the fabric and the patterns.
If it wasn't so darn difficult to make I would whip up another one in time for her trip, and who knows maybe I will.
Happy Trails to you, until next time.
