I have been sewing like crazy few days ago..then took a mini break yesterday ..well from sewing..sortof?? I started out sewing, then couldn't find something I needed and then I started moving things around and one thing led to another and before I knew it my whole craft room was reorganized !! It took  me til this morning to get the way I wanted and its so much better.. Its a small room but I ended up having more room then I did and I moved another sewing table in! I now have access to all three of my sewing machines!!
What have I been working on is some purses to sell. I made two and want to make another different one and let some of my friends "sample" them and see if they are good to sell..or if I need to change anything different..

My first one I made is called a Slouchy Bag..I used corduroy for exterior and cotton for lining. I found this cute pattern/tutorial from . You need to check this blog out ! There is alot of cute ideas there and this is one of them , cute! Thank you ladies for this tutorial!

Another bag I made today was easy easy! and really cute! It doesn't even call for interfacing but I'm thinking about adding some next one I make..
These bags usually fall under the "hobo" or sling bag. There's a lot of versions and tutorials out there to grab. I got mine here at Oh, and this one is reversible too.It looks pink here but its actually peachy color. (Dana, you might be seeing some fabric that looks familiar! )

I received one of my swap packages from my three partners! This one is from Colorado and she really went way out and send a very well put together package of all sorts of goodies!! This little wall hanging is so cute!
 And with that came all this..She sent me a bag full of Scrabble tiles that I have no clue yet what I should do with them. I see them in alot of scrap booking but I'm don't do alot of that. Any ideas out there?

My favorite thing was this little book...The Workbasket.. circa 1955. I got a kick out of looking through this gem. My mom use to get these all the time.(later in the 70's when I remember!! lol) Do they still sell them? for .15cents???? HAHA The advertising in it was a hoot.

Everyone have a nice and safe 4th of July!!!!
