|fabric: Sandi Henderson's Meadowsweet|
I love how these fabrics come together. I've taken to making all of my bags now with an adjustable strap - they're so much more usable than without.
I've also started putting my tags on the inside of the bag, rather than the outside. More subtle, no?
Here's what she made me - a sketch of my sewing machine to hang onto the wall. I love this, she has such a talent for animating inanimate objects. Here are a few pictures from an artful coloring book that she made with her mom, who is also an artist:
Of course, I can't ever stop at just sewing one bag because I have to do everything in bunches. I've started on a few for the shop.
I wish I could tell you when they'll be in the shop, but I've been a lazy seamstress this summer. I might not finish them for several weeks.
I hope that you're all enjoying the end of your summers. I have to back to work in a week and a half.
