It's Official!!!...I'm a bag lady!!



LOL...well a bag lady yes.... but not one that pushes around all of her worldly possessions in a shopping cart. Oh me oh my...goodness no!...with all of my "cra..."...oops I mean craft and collectables..lol....I would need an awful big trolley...about the size of your average road train I would think...lol (bit hard to maneuver around those tight corners...tee hee!)

What I mean is.... that since my last post about the bags I wanted to make for my mum (youno... from that ridiculously priced fabric that I just had to have!!) I got to thinkin'....and what I "thunk" was that I really should have a go at one before I cut into that $43 a metre fabric that is literally worth its weight in gold.

So I set about buying some more suitable fabric...(and handles and trim...and more fuseable lining, and..and..and....oh my god!!!...HELP ME PLEASE!!!...seriously...I have a problem!!!!)...and set about making a bag to test my capabilities.

Well....it turned out fabulously and I was surprised to find that "the crafter who hates to sew" (with the sewing machine that is) actually enjoyed it immensley and in fact set about making three more!!!....YESSSS..I know....that's three more trips back top the dreaded sewing machine (I even cleaned and oiled it....poor neglected little thing it is)

So as I said...It's official I am now a bag lady!. I even have a new sub-category button on my website to prove it!!....they may not be prim but they're very nice and I am sure quite handy (wonder if that's why they call them handbags???,....hmmmph....a thought for another day maybe!)

Anyways.....I popped all four of my newest creations up on my website this afternoon and loh and behold...you wont believe it.... but three sold immediately...I guess that now makes me a "successful" bag lady....tee hee hee!!!.

Lucky I guess....as now I have an excuse to delve into the big bag of "bag goodies" I have collected and set about whipping up some more!!

Until next time...
