A Saturday Finish and a Hot Spring Day

I finished up the green KFC Frankenbag tonight. And a friend of mine fell in love with it so it will be going to live with her.

I just love these green fabrics. The little pops of color all over the bag are pretty amazing.

Here’s the back of the bag.

I ordered some faux leather tags the other day and and they arrived today.

I just love this little tag! And I love how it makes the bag feel finished. Amazing what a little label can do for making something look like really something!

I was so careful and it’s still crooked! It’s making me nuts. I’ll cut it off tomorrow and do it again. I wouldn’t be able to stop thinking about it if I didn’t fix it.

After I finished this bag I sewed labels on all the other bags I’ve made recently. It looks really good on this Aboriginal fabric bag.

More tags on more bags…

Another blog reader named Sharon Rose Marcum sent me photos of a bag she made from my tutorial. And I just LOOOOOVE this one! Her bold use of colors and patterns has really inspired me!

You know I’m a sucker for black and white with bold colors. And these pops of yellow ant turquoise are pretty fantastic too!

And the pocket that’s different from the lining is so fun!!! I love this bag! Sharon did an amazing job! She really dived right in boldly!!!

We’re having a crazy spring in Portland. When I took the dogs for a walk this afternoon the weather app on my phone said it was 88 degrees! I had to stop in the park to let the dogs cool off half way through our walk.

It’s pretty rough to have two such photogenic dogs.

I have secured an appointment for my first Covid vaccine on Tuesday. It’s a relief to have it in the books.

  1. The labels definitely and the finishing touch to your gorgeous bags. Can you share where you ordered them? I’m collecting batting and I did get some vinyl for handles but am questioning if it will hold up. Once my studio’s chaos calms from so many projects being finished I will dig into my scrap boxes and make a bag or three. πŸ˜›

  2. First of all, isn’t it great to create and give away to friends that appreciate our works? Secondly, that photo of the dogs in the park looks painted. That green grass with scattered flowers looked assembled rather than just natural!!
