double dang!


My initial thought, when thinking about the Friday recap post, was that I have been spinning and spinning yet again on that sucky little wheel with not much to show for it. Then I thought, "Eh, I still need to do it even if it's pitiful." Ladies, this is where I'm here to tell you that it's worth keeping a visual log of your weekly work. I could only remember two things at first. Upon looking over my photos I had to give it a big DOUBLE DANG! I worked my tail off this week and didn't even KNOW it.

If the photo links up to Etsy, then the bag has been listed. If not, I am planning to list all of the rest today as soon as I wrangle my model and nab a few photos. This, my friends, is more difficult than it sounds. Believe me.

The close up of this bag is to show you this cool zipper detail on one side of the leather.

Someone saw this on my Facebook page and snapped it up.
Like to "like" me on Facebook so that you, too, can get sneak peeks?

I love the cute back pocket on this one. Next picture is the front of the same clutch.

It was made from a 100% wool Gap blazer - a sad little blazer indeed.
It just needed to be reborn.

I'm so excited about this. I am IN LOVE with this fabric and thought I'd never see it again. Well, do tell, I found it and purchased several yards. Believe it or not, I have several totes from this fabric and it actually covers my dining room chairs! Yeah, I wasn't lying about loving it.

Both of the above crossbody bags have a full-sized back pocket.

And lastly, I've had several people asking about this bomber jacket recycled leather bag from last week. I was going to list it in the shop on Sunday, but it sold over the weekend to a mailing list follower. Are you on the mailing list? As for the leather, I still have some of this particular jacket and will be creating another bag once my poor machine recovers.

Okay, see? Double Dang. I can hold my head high this week. I actually worked. :)

Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. You have become a machine this past month in making new bags! And how much longer till you get a new machine? :)

  5. Kelley, that would be once we know for certain (in Oct.) that Mr. W has a job which, actually is ironic because the machine, in the long run, will be what brings in income. Therefore, for the time being, I'm socking away my paycheck. :( Job security - it ain't what it used to be. :)

  8. awesome! these are all great! It makes me want to buy them all and give them a nice, new home. I am disappointed about the bomber jacket bag. I was looking forward to it on your site. It looks wonderful! I may have to find them secret hiding places in the closet. "no honey, I've had that bag forever. you've never seen it before? hmmmm...."
