sleepy time

they are adorable when they are sleeping…and most of the time when they are awake…



so here are a few pictures of my studio in our new house. we have only been here for just under a month so there are boxes still unpacked, my studio as the storeroom until we find the time to put things away. but despite the messiness and the choas of fabric everywhere, i love having my own room.

now get ready for the madness… here is my studio after my first night of working on my current bag order. i had the capture it while you could still find the sewing machine and chair. thank god for memorial day, not that i believe the cause of it is very good, but the post office is closed so that gives me one more day of sewing. i can actually sleep and maybe fit in an x-files episode.

one last thing, this is the great fabric i got from hancocks a few weeks ago. it will be incorporated into most of the bags and i’m sad to say i couldn’t keep any for myself, but hopefully the rest of the roll is still at the store…i should of stuffed it under a huge pile for safe keepings until next time i go fabric shopping. it has butterflies, bees, and dragonflies throughout.

my friend asked me a long time ago to convert her old pajamas into a bag so here is what i finally came up with…

the print was pretty pastelly and i wanted to bring out some out the brighter colors and make it hip. michael and i decided to just cut out the floral parts and i think it ended up good. this is my first time sewing this style and after losing my own bag, i think i’ll remake it with this new pattern.

it seems that an update is needed, well, i just finished up at school, until fall term, and i’m gearing up for a summer of sewing and art making. i am in the beginning stages of selling my bags on the west coast… and florida… it is all due to this wonderful lady. however, that amount a bag orders coming in is getting intense and i’m looking for a co-worker. i have a few friends in mind, but no one is confirmed as of yet.

so before i could get a picture of the bag i made for myself last month, it was stolen this weekend. they better of given it to someone for a mother’s day present!!! …along with the missing flower pot outside of the bar i was at… so this means that i will have to make a new bag for myself and i have found the motherload of awesome fabric at hancock’s. the best part is that for four days my $6/yrd. will be $1.99/yd. HOLY MOTHER OF A SALE!!!! i forgot that I never got a picture of my art bag either. things to do . things to do.
