My Studio

I don't know about you but when I get in a creative mood (which is most of the time) I tend not to be neat. Ok, I'm a clutterer. I will pile this fabric on top of that fabric mixed in with matching zippers, and oh I got another idea and I go on the hunt for a particular piece of fabric for the new idea. And before you know it I have way to much out. So then I have to reorganize a bit. So that is where I am at this point. I have some holiday ideas and about half dozen or more sewing projects cut out and waiting for me. So, the plan for today is to straighten up my sewing room so that I can get back to sewing.
My sewing studio is small, but with all those heavy duty shelf's that my hubby built for me on the back wall I have more than enough space. I will take some before during and after pictures to post here as I go along.
Here are a couple before pictures:
Before picture, looking right

Before picture, looking left
I will get some in progress shots later today.
Along with that project I need to work on cleaning the kitchen and getting ready for Thanksgiving. I'm having the family here for dinner. I will be cooking a turkey with all the sides that each of the kids like.  I am so thankful for my family, they are the best, and I know I can trust them. They support my dream of creating beautiful handmade bags and selling them in my own online boutique.



Have a great day and thanks for stopping by,
Kathi

Unique and One of a Kind bags
I crocheted each of these bags.  Crochet is something I learned as a child and have always loved. Its usually something I do in the winter months, and many of the items have become treasured gifts.

Measurements: 6 inches by 7 inches
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This beautiful snow white drawstring purse was crocheted by me using 100% cotton yarn. It is a very lacy feminine purse and it has 2 drawstrings to pull it closed and hang on your wrist. This bag is 6 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches . I recommend hand washing and lay flat to dry. This little bag would be a lovely bridal bag
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This fun small crochet purse, made with black eyelash yarn with blue and purple fluff spots, is a truly unique one of a kind bag. It has a button closure, I made with polymer clay. Carry it like a clutch purse or hang on your wrist like a wristlet. You will love carrying it. 
Measurements: 
8 inches across (side to side)
8 1/2 inches top of handle to bottom of purse
6 inches top to bottom (if folded and carried like a clutch)
4 inches deep (inside)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Crocheted small purse with wild fringe down the front. White with multi-color spots. This purse can be carried like a clutch purse or hang it on your wrist like a wristlet. I made this bag with eyelash yarn and is very soft. This closes with a button and is one of a kind.
Measurements:
8 inches across
11 inches tall
5 inches deep (inside)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Carry this little bag like a clutch purse or lift the flap and slip your hand through the opening and you have a wristlet.
This cute clutch purse was crocheted with 100% cotton yarn in a cream color with pink, green and blue spots. I have added two crochet flowers on the front flap.
Measurements:
folded 8 inches by 4 inches 
inside compartment 8 inches by 4 inches 
opened 9-1/2 inches by 8 inches
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
crochet purse was made using a black eye lash yarn that has cream and tan colored fiber spots. This bag has a long strap for carrying over your shoulder. I made the stitches tight enough to hold your things in and not to fall out, yet loose enough to give it a nice soft feel. I added a pretty tan button closure on the front.
Be unique and one of a kind with this handmade crochet purse.
