Time for some new bags...

I finally got the bags finished for a client in Oklahoma. I love how they all came out. I hope she enjoys them as much as I do. 

I've never been a big polka dot person, but lately, I've been a tiny bit obsessed. I've made a couple of different bags (in different combos) of the red, black, and white dots. The lining is giant red dots. I love it. And the clothes and pattern pieces fabric, I adore. I wish I had yards and yards of it. I would make everything out of it. I would recover all my furniture in it. But fortunately for Bobby and Tim, I don't have much more.

I still have a bit of the great great zig zag fabric so I made a pouch out of it. The button on it is one of my faves. The floral and orange fabrics look so great together. I love this combination. And the button...tiny little flower clusters. Heaven. 

I finally finished Donna's second bag that she requested and I'm in love. It is lots of scraps and an old feed sack that mom sent. I have no idea what a bathing beauty has to do with chick feed, but it is super cute. 

Here is the back. "Big C" is the name of the feed I suppose. The sack was in great shape and I'm happy that it turned out so well.

I think I'm going to do a giveaway soon of a tote or pouch or both. Doesn't that sound fun?
I haven't been sewing too much at home because I am right in the thick of sewing a sheep costume for "Charlotte's Web" at the Rep. It is super fun in that costume shop. I made them listen to "Gypsy" today. Or really, I made them listen to me sing along to the show. Sue me.
Take Care,
Chantry

Nothing sewing and singing along to Gypsy. Hope it was the original cast recording. Ethel had pipes. Damn.
