Now I'm a Bag Lady

Just finished this adorable bag for a customer who wanted one personalized to carry things back and forth to daycare.  I spent more time worrying over it than it actually took me to complete the project.  That white piping across the top threw me off a bit at first.  The mother requested the bag be neutral but "pinked" up a bit.


I used an oversized tote with a zipper to ensure things wouldn't fall out in transit.  A tiny bit of chevron fabric keeps it from becoming over powering but still provides a modern touch.  I didn't think $25 was too much considering the scale of the design.  Layla's Mommy agreed!

We All Have Our Baggage

You have probably noticed while traveling that when your luggage comes onto the carousel in baggage claim your little black bag looks pretty much like everyone else's.  I solved this problem by creating monogrammed bag tags. Using bright and beautiful grosgrain ribbon I used a font called Eccentric and embroidered directly onto the ribbon as it was held in place on my stabilizer with adhesive spray. The font was skinny enough that I could use a bigger more bold 2 inch initial.  To make them sturdy enough to survive the handling process I used large grommets. In addition I thought they could use a bit of extra embellishment and I added a wooden bead and some extra ribbons tied on to jazz them up a bit.  Getting that ribbon through the bead proved to be the most difficult part of the entire process but I liked how it finished them. Fun colors that will certain make your bag stand out in a crowd.  We all have our baggage - flag yours! Ribbons are 1 1/2 inche

So, Some Sunflowers!

A bit too early for pumpkins I stitched out this beautiful sunflower design from The Itch2Stitch.  It's simple but elegant and a nice transition into fall decorating.  I'm never disappointed with the quality of their digitizing.
