I did get this sewn up today :).  Cute fabric with the some of the original Star Wars characters, Darth Vader, R2D2, C3PO, and Luke Skywalker.

I have two of the Winter series bags cut out, one is a medium size and the other a large.  Might get one sewn up tomorrow, but it might be next week before I get them done.

I didn’t finish the knitted hat yesterday, but very close and it will be finished for sure today :).  I will get a picture of it put up tomorrow because I intend to give it to the recipient Sunday. 🙂

Winter storm watch today, and about 5 to 8 inches of snow expected overnight they said.  Winter appears to be here.  Is it Spring yet?

This is the last Holiday bag I have planned to sew for this season, tho I do enjoy all the beautiful Holiday fabrics.  I do have another Star Wars bag cut out and a Winter bag cut out.  I will be adding a Winter bag collection to  my Etsy shop after the Star Wars bag is finished. 🙂  Some of those will be larger bags like the Cowboy bag in the previous post.  They will be large enough for a good sized shawl and perhaps a sweater.

I’m close to finishing the knitted hat I’m working on for my friend’s husband.  I’ll post a picture of it when it is done,  maybe tomorrow. 🙂

Speaking of tomorrow, we are suppose to have a mixture of snow and rain tomorrow, turning into just snow in the evening and overnight.  Projections for amounts are around 3 inches or more, depending on how warm the ground is and how much of it melts.  I knew it had to come, but I’m never ready for snow :P.

Large Cowboys Bag :)

I got the large Cowboys bag made for my son in law.  I took a picture of all three sizes so you could see the differences between them.  The larger bag takes more fabric (3/4 of a yard of main fabric and same for liner), but is a little easier to sew around the handles so I guess it’s a trade off.  🙂  If you click on the picture it will enlarge in another window.

We had some really bad Thunderstorms through last night.  High winds and tornado warnings.  They said someone sighted a tornado touch down in one of the surrounding towns but we didn’t have one here thank goodness.  I didn’t hear of anyone getting hurt, but there were branches blown off trees in the road and peoples trash cans in the roads.  The rains stopped this morning sometime but the winds didn’t die down until about 6pm.  I’m ready for some sun now ;P.

The 2nd hat I’m knitting out of the polypay is coming along.  The first one (that I forgot to get a picture of 😦 ) was 1×1 rib, this one is a 2×2 rib.  Playing to see what looks best.  I’m hoping “crosses fingers” to have it done by Saturday evening.

Christmas Knot Bags :)

I have several new Christmas Knot Bags made for my Etsy shop.  These two are embroidered.  Was fun picking out the designs from all the designs I’ve purchased and amassed over the years.  I wanted them to be simple but elegant :).

The two below are some really pretty Christmas fabrics I saw.  They were calling me to make them.  So many beautiful fabrics, so little time lol.

I did finish the knitted hat from the polypay yarn, but sadly I forgot to take a picture of it before I gave it to them.  I still have one more to make, so I will try to remember to get a picture of this one before giving it.  I have the skein rolled into a ball and have begun casting on.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving season and preparing for an equally wonderful Christmas season. 🙂

I made another Hearts Knot Bag.  This one I have put in my Etsy Shop, I might have to  buy some more of this fabric and make one for myself because  I think the fabric is so beautiful :).

The last two weeks have been sooooo hectic, I’m hoping after this week end that my life might get back to some kind of normalcy.  Time will tell.

I’m working on a hat from the polypay yarn for my friend and it’s almost finished, I will post a picture when it’s done.  I will have her son try it on before I do the other one so I know if the size was correct for the other one I need to knit for her husband.

Star Wars Bag and Embroidery Bags Made :)

My computer bit the dust and for a about 1 1/2 weeks I had to use my daughters computer to get online for my email and Etsy shop. My dad was kind enough to get me another lap top.  Hard to have an online business and not have a way to be on line :P.  Dad’s are wonderful :).

This is my Star Wars medium size bag.  I love Star Wars and since they are getting ready to have a new Star Wars movie come out in December I have access to fabrics with Star Wars designs :).  I may get one more Star Wars design fabric.

I have been working on other bags as well, pictures posted below.  They are embroidered instead of using the patterned fabrics I have been using.  It’s interesting deciding on the embroidery designs for them.   I chose “I Love Knitting with Handspun” and  “Obsessed Knitter” for these two,  I will be make more of the embroidery bags.

The hurricane that went through Mexico and Texas sure gave us some really rainy, windy weather Tuesday and Wednesday in the midwest.  Tuesday was down pours most of the day, today was light rain most of the day but it seems to have subsided now.  Even tho the temps were in the 40’s and that is not really cold for here, that cold/wet wind seemed bone chilling.  Just a not so gentle reminder that winter is on the way :(.

Loved this fabric when I saw it at Hobby Lobby and thought then that it would make a great bag, and I think it did. :).  Reminds me of Summer and picnics and warm days and with Fall coming I am going to need those thoughts because Winter is right around the corner, and Winter here is a long and very cold season :).

 

I’ll try to get some pictures of the beautiful foliage of the the changing colors of the trees around here.

 

Hearts Bag Made :)

I made this bag for a friend.  She has some health issues and I wanted to make a knot bag for her so I asked her what kind of fabric she would like and she said hearts.  I wasn’t able to find any in the local stores so I searched online.  I knew this fabric was it when i saw it.  It’s so beautiful!!  There is what looks like a mark on the bag, but it’s a bit of fabric fuzz I didn’t notice until after the pictures were taken.  I’m sure she will enjoy this. 🙂

Cowboys Bag :)

I did get my Cowboy’s knot bag finished.  Very pleased with the way it finished up.  I am working on some others in anticipation of opening an Etsy shop.  Doing the sewing (ie: work)  is not the hold up, it’s the management of the set up, lol, not my thing, but I’ll figure it out.   I am in the middle of figuring out what the postage will be (kinda pointless to put stuff in a shop if you don’t know what the shipping will be to send it out :P), and that means going back and forth to the post office with what I decide to use to ship in and a bag(s) so I will know the weight etc.  Then there is deciding what to say about the bags and myself and how to handle returns (hope there aren’t any but if you don’t prepare then I guarantee “Murphy” will move in .)  Until then I will just share pictures of the bags I finish. 🙂

Ninja Turtles Bag :)

Yes, I like the Ninja Turtles.  I bought this fabric to make a smaller bag for a little one who is a family member.  Since I had purchased 1/2 yard of fabric and liner, I had enough to make a larger bag for me, it will be a fun bag :).

Will be looking today for some liner fabric for the Star Wars fabric I bought.  I will also look for some Cowboys fabric and liner, will love using that bag if I can find the fabric, go Dallas Cowboys :).
