Grandkids Favorite Characters on New Drawsting Backpack

Today I created, among others, a little backpack for my grandson's favorite little cars. This fabric features Lightning McQueen and Tow-Mater. I can hardly wait to see his face when he gets this. I have to wait till Monday though. So stay tuned for a picture or two of the biggest smile ever.

Didn't forget my precious little grandaughter either. This is her new bag to keep her things all neat and tidy too.

I can make these for you too! Geat gift ideas! Use them as a gift bag. Just visit my web page at and order with confidence and pay safely through Paypal or with a money order.

Elegant Drawsting Evening Bag

This is a new evening-out version of my drawstring bag. This is made from black satin brocade. The strap is red coordinating satin. This turned out very elegant and very suitable for gift-giving, which is what this one is for.
Happy mother's day to all mom's everywhere!

My Newfound Treasure

Add Image What a bargain! Found for a mere $5.99, I was making a quick run through the thrift store today and found this wonderful little piece of machinery. I just have to have a back-up for when my Jeans Machine goes into the shop for it's regular check-ups. Old sewing machines always bring back memories of my first days of sewing class in high school. (Nostalgic should be my middle name). Problem is I cannot find the model number on this and would like to find some accessories. I did a brief google search and just turned up images of lots of other machines I wish I had room for.
Anyway, if you have never learned how to sew, but would like to, your local thrift stores are wonderful places to go to get started. See my upcycled -shorts -turned-trendy-new-purse . In addition to finding a wonderful sewing machine for a wonderful price, you can pick up like-new clothing to turn into something wonderfully and unquely you!
