Picked my mail up on the way off to retreat this weekend, and there was Carla’s One Block Over package (GREAT timing!) so the first thing I did once I got set up at retreat was make these two cute blocks… love the quilt idea, adore the birdie print!!!
The rest of retreat was spent creating bags…
|Note the red sequins on the Ruby Slipper bags!|
|I really like the way this MOMO fabric from Moda quilted up!|
…and a few more bags…
Love the Joel Dewberry fabric I used for lining on the birdie wristlet (sadly, it’s one of my last scraps of it!):
I’ve sewn three more of these wristlets since this weekend (more pics to come), to get ready to vend at a craft boutique this weekend. Feeling bird-brained (pun intended) from doing the same thing over and over… I’m not much for mass-producing, or assembly-lining items, so, to me this seems like an unpleasant way to make a living, but I’m committed to two craft boutiques, so…
The best thing about all of these bags–and Carla’s blocks? Almost everyone was made from fabric in my scrap bins! I really didn’t cut into too much new fabric.
Have a favorite of my bags?
Ever done any vending yourself? Or made many of something to sell?
