The Learning Curve

Well, if you read the previous post, you've no doubt formed the opinion that we don't have a clue what on earth we're doing. Well, it's not quite that bad, but we do tend to muck things up a bit as we learn..... Sound like anyone else you know? We've been on a bit of a handbag trip lately - thought you might enjoy seeing one of our new finds. Amy went to quilt market last summer, and found this delightful company called Goody, Goody. They make the most exquisite hand bags! The bags are made of silk with reinforced nylon bottoms and handles. All the bags feature hand crafted silk flowers, and they will just make you melt!

We do have a number of these bags in stock in different styles and colors, so give the shop a jingle if you're interested in giving one of these beauties a new home! You'll find our contact information on our web site

On the sew-it-yourself front, our newest love of a bag is Amy Butler's Frenchie Bag. We made up our shop sample in some of Kaffe Fassett's newest fabrics - always a shop favorite! The pattern is easy enough for even beginning beginners - if you can read and sew a relatively consistent seam, you'll be able to master this pattern. You'll find, of course, that you will become addicted to the ease of construction for this pattern, and will be making handbags to match this or that outfit, and naturally one for each of the girlfriends! Again, contact the shop, and we can get a bag kitted up and out in the post for you!
