I've got tons to show so I thought I'd break it down into categories. I had a small swirl of business in my Etsy shop, selling two of my upholstery swatch/scrap custom wallets and one pre-made wallet in the same week! I think the wallet is improved with the zipper closure and I'm excited that I got to have some practice with the new design. It definitely helps to get into a rhythm when handstitching the zippers in place.
These wallets really bring out the obsessive side of my personality. I could play around with the placement of the internal fabric pieces for hours!
Jill, of Custom Cookies by Jill, ordered a handbag a few months ago and I only just cleared out the orders in front of her to get it made. It's based on the bag pattern in the BurdaStyle book, with some (I think) improvements: shorter leather straps/handles, thermolam fleece interfacing to give it more structure, a cell phone pocket and a zippered pocket. I'm thinking about ways I can further play around with the design, because the bag is a great size for an everyday handbag.
And because I wanted to figure out the right combination of interfacing for the bag, I made one for myself to test it out. The fabric I used on my bag is from one of my Economy Shop hauls, so it probably cost me about $1.50. New fall budget bag for the boss!
And yes, that is a Hancock Fabric's sale pamphlet peeking out from under my wallet. Got to be prepared.
