Sew News

A Slideshow Of My Favorite Projects.

I have tons of fabric that I want to transform from mounds of stash (fabric stash, that is) into more purses and bags because I need to free up space. But then the bags are taking up space, so I will be lowering my prices in my etsy shop. I love to keep on sewing, but space is becoming quite a problem. So you can get handmade fabric purses, totes, clear vinyl purses, and little envelope card holders for a great price! In addition to already-handmade drawstring backpacks, I have listings with which you can order a backpack in your choice of fabric (pictured on the listing) and in the size you prefer. If you would like to order, it is free to join etsy, and you can contact me through the link near the bottom of any listing with the "contact the seller" link or on the right hand side there is a link to "Request Custom Item".

Vintage Fabric Purse

This is another new addition to my shop. Made from vintage Crantex Fabric. I absolutely love this fabric and this is the very last piece I had. I made and sold the handbag below a couple years ago.

Handmade Crib Quilt and Matching Accessories

This is the crib quilt I made for my new grand-baby. I originally bought these dinosaur panels about a year ago, just to add to my collection of favorite fabrics. Then when I found out grand-baby number four was on the way, and new mommy and daddy chose primary colors for the nursery, I was SEW happy! I went to my source and bought a couple more panels, just in case I had a further brain storm. I just had to make the pillow to match, which is for the rocking chair, to help mommy be comfy while feeding baby. But I could not stop there with all the extra panels I had left, and found a soft piece of flannel in my stash for backing the burp cloths and bib. Well, the picture below shows the result of my further brain-storming:

A multi-purpose drawstring bag (for small toys, a small diaper bag?), two burp cloths, and a bib.

"4 he is like the light of morning at sunrise
on a cloudless morning,
like the brightness after rain
that brings the grass from the earth.'
2 Samuel 23:4

More Purses By VictoriaLynn

A collection of photos of custom orders that never made it to My Etsy Shop. This custom oriental bamboo- handle-bag was custom designed for Dee. I featured black oriental fabric on one side and red on the other.

Getting Scrap Happy

A time to Sew and a time to reap....
Today I have been working on my goal to use those beautiful pieces of favorite fabrics I have left from former projects.This is about the fourth bag I have made from this wonderful red vintage drapery/upholstery fabric. I even found the tag still attached to this piece that has the original price. Wow. Those were the good old days. This was originally from Boston Store, Erie, PA. I bought a lot of this fabric from ebay a few years ago.
This tag has the original price of $1.27 per yard. This was very wide fabric too. Worth much more today, for sure. Does anybody collect old vintage price tags? Might make a great new collection item?


This bag will be offered for sale on etsy. It is made from my own pattern. The large 8" lucite purse handles have glitter molded in. The floral pattern looks like large red roses, dahlias and football mums splashed with pink.
