Threads on the floor, on my clothes, in my hair…

My DH says my craft room currently looks like the Fabric Fairy has thrown up in it. It is a wee bit messy and re-arranged, but for a good reason. My friend Kaye and I are having a bag stall at:

The Inglewood Artisans Market

Which is held on the 2nd Saturday on the Month (not THIS Saturday, like in the ad above). The next Market will be in 2 weeks time – on 14th November. I have been sewing PVC covered bags all day today, here are a few examples.

I shall be giving my lovely Pay It Forward girls (no, I haven’t forgotten you!) their presents from any of the bags that don’t sell. I will also put one up as my part of the giveaway when we eventually celebrate our 100th blog post (Oops!).

I also FINALLY finished another Pleated Beauty Bag for my friend Steph, who has been patiently waiting for it for awhile. She chose denim with brown and aqua pleats.

Oh, BTW, I managed to travel to NSW and back last week for a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Field Staff Training Seminar. I had a excellent time away with some wise, loving, encouraging and courageous women – and lots of laughs too. Many thanks to my beloved DH for holding down the fort.

Best get back sewing (& blogging).

With Love

Very exciting to hear the fabric fairy feels so at home in your sewing room! The bags look great - make a million (dollars not bags...) at the market! LOL, Katherine

Hey Janelle thanks for the heads up about the markets and as i haven't gotten anywhere near making my own bag i will have to come and find your stall. Was the seminar good?

Good luck with the market - you should be very popular with such gorgeous bags to sell.

The Fabric Fairy is a continental traveler, because she comes here and is sick often, as well! She must get airsick! :)

Your bags, as always, are lovely!

Enjoyed your pictures, but did you notice that the set of three pictures showing the bags actually look like 3 little aliens!
Maybe there is just something wrong with me today but I couldn't help laughing. They are sooooo darling.
Hope you don't think I am crazy but it was really cute.
Hugs to you for lightening my afternoon.
