Seems More Like Fall

...Than Spring time.  So, in sticking with the fall feel, I pulled the paints out and started practicing for fall bag artwork.  Almost finished with a stack of bags and wallets for the shop.  Will be photographing this weekend and have them up in my etsy shop next week.  Busy busy.  Good busy.

Thinking Ahead... warmer weather and the beach!  Finished these two Amy Butler Weekender bags that I started a few years (yes, you read that right, years) ago.  I really love how they turned out.  The floral one I used all the Peltex interfacing called for and broke two needles in the  process.  With the black quilted I did not use a liner or interfacing at all.  I sewed extra wide bias tape around the seams on the interior to give it a nice clean finish.  These bags are awesome.  I can't wait to make another one.

 I'm also working on a beach blanket using fat quarters and a painters drop cloth.  I found the tutorial over here and can't wait to get this going! Here's the fabric I'll be using.

Happy Sunday!  Hope your week is productive and kind.  Can you believe it's already March?!!  Crazy!
