Asian inspired and fun zipper pouches for sale!…

I just posted these really cute zipper pouches in the Etsy shop. I honestly just needed to get a couple of small things done, because really, getting small things done helps to motivate for the bigger projects I’ve got on the back burner – don’t you agree? You gotta have the little achievements that help get you stoked to move onward to the big ones. I’ve been putting off a bunch of things, but I’ve really gotta get it together. I’m almost committing myself to a catalog/product photo shoot in June, and I’ve hardly got any “product” to shoot! I’ve got the photog, just still confirming the model. But I thought to myself, if I went so far as to commit the photographer and the model, that would kind of force me to get my $*#$^ together, and at least have a target date. Lol, kind of @ss backwards, but hey, whatever works. It’s been a challenge to say the least getting my head in the game. But it’s getting there!




Wipe those feet…

So okay, my husband and I bought our first home a couple of years ago.  We LOVE it!  When we moved in, there was a lot of work that had to be done, one of which – was the ripping out of old, and putting in brand new carpet.  The carpet was sooo expensive and took a big chunk of our money, and as such, we were so very paranoid about it getting dirty.  My husband got this grand idea, that everyone in the house would have to wipe their feet before going on the carpeted area.  Our downstairs is flooring, and so when you walk around on the flooring your feet tend to get dusty and dirty.  So, we got a refillable baby wipe container, and have been wiping our feet before going upstairs.  It’s crazy to some, but we’re like that I guess, lol.

At first, we just had this little bucket thing to put all the “dirty” wipes in.  After a while, I wasn’t feeling how it looked, so I decided I’d sew something.

I ended up making a type of bag – similar to one you might put in your car for rubbish.  And we just hung it from the handrail.  I have to admit, I like it!

It’s lined on the inside with plastic vinyl – for easy cleaning (but I’ve just thrown it in the washing machine), and the bottom of the bag has a velcro closure flap.  So the bag can be carried nicely to the trash, and the velcro bottome opened up – all the dirty wipes fall right out into the rubbish.  It has a simple opening to insert the wipes, and a tie.

It looks much better to me than the bucket thing we had initially!




Seller stalker…

So recently we did a craft fair and this nice lady came and bought one of my handmade, handsewn bags.  It’s one I was pretty proud of since I hadn’t worked with that particular fabric before.  I guess she had her eye on it, because she came right up to me and picked it off the display and handed me her bills.  Easy transaction…

Anyhow, I asked her if she wanted a bag to put it in, and she politely declined and just slung the bag over her shoulder and off she went. 

After she left, I realized that I had never took a picture of the bag!  Yikes!  How can I put it in my book if I don’t have a picture!  Like a stalker, I followed her around with my phone, pretending to be texting, while trying to catch a decent picture of it.  Haha, that’ll teach me to take pictures of everything before going to a fair!  Oh wells!  It’s always nice to see someone using something you made isn’t it! (mine is the one without the b!tch on it! =)
