New Adventure!

I have been making the cute quilted wristlet handbags for quite awhile now and have gotten to the point of perfection!  My sister now calls me “Suzie Homemaker” and suggested I try selling them.  Sometimes I don’t know how I get caught in her suggestions, but I did.  I opened an Etsy shop yesterday to sell the 3 different types of wristlets I have made.  As of today mixed with yesterday there were a total of 38 views!  I was pretty impressed!  Not sure how successful/non successful this will be, but willing to give it a try.  Please check it out and let me know what you think!



I think I am getting the hang of this, one day at a time.  I almost feel obsessed and my fiance is by now, frustrated that I keep interrupting his television shows with the sound a humming sewing machine.  I just can’t get enough!  I want to try everything!  The next project on my list this weekend that I had wanted to try was a quilted zippered cosmetic bag/pencil holder that measures about 9 in. by 6 in.  Using more of my leftover fabric from previous projects as well as batting and zippers I created these adorable bags.  I am unsure what I will be doing with them, but I feel it is a waste to just toss the fabric, if it can be utilized.  I found the pattern from Crafty Gemini as one of her older tutorials.  She utilizes an 8″ pattern; however, the zippers I found were either 7″ or 9″ so I modified the pattern a wee bit to match the materials I had on hand.
