Bag Pillow Friday

Where the heck is time going??  Wow.  July 12 already!  Made this bag yesterday.  It's growing on me. I really love the size of it and am considering using it for a camera bag.  It's super sturdy.  Made from upholstery fabric that is interfaced and appliqued with leather scraps and leftover shower curtain for the main flower!  The lining is a home dec fabric I picked up on clearance at the fabric shop.  I also put feet protectors on the bottom for setting it down when not in use.  This took me all day yesterday.  I was in a weird funk and the flower didn't turn out the way I had pictured in my mind.  One of those days.  It is cute.  See, it's growing on me :)

Look at these zippers!  They came from either my grandmas sewing stash or my aunts mothers sewing stash.  I inherited a ton of cool 'vintage' sewing supplies.  I really like to incorporate these items when making stuff for our home or for my family.  It keeps it personal and leaves us with fond memories.

I used the longer black one in this pillow for our family room.  Love how the guitar looks on the couch.  Think I will be making a few more music themed pillows to go with.  Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Happy 4th of July!!

Well, it was a relatively quiet 4th here for most of the day.  Steady rain since this morning so we skipped the Nashville fireworks show and hit the hay early.  We just settled in and heard super loud booms.  Naturally curious I peeked out the window to see this HUGE fabulous display right over our house.  A little glad it was raining, genuinely concerned for our neighbors roof!!  Lol.  Non the less I ran and grabbed my camera.  Did the best I could considering I was standing in the open doorway to our patio in my underwear and tshirt trying to be discreet.  I love fireworks!

And my absolute favorite shot.  Love how this turned out!  Crazy electricity looking!

Golf Beads!!

Dave and I went out and picked up frisbee golf discs and played nine holes this week.  What a blast from the past!  It was great fun and the views were just amazing.  Heading out again today.  While we were tossing away, I quickly realized that I needed a little help with keeping track of my shots.  Then I remembered the golf counter beads that I used to use when I first started golfing.  I've made so many of these for friends and family for purse/bag bling that I decided to put them up over here on my ShellyJackHandmade etsy shop.   Well, golf counter beads and frisbee discs in tow, we are headed out to play!  Hope everyone's week is going well.  This week is a holiday for those of us in the U.S.  Enjoy!
