It's In The Bag!

Good Monday to you all!

Someone's making progress on their bag for the Impossibilities Challenge...

Goin' with some beloved vintage strawberry fabric for the purse body... I cannot find the green lucite handles I wanted to use (I am sure I will find them 2 years from now in the bottom of a bin), so I am going to use these natural bamboo ones.

I've been enjoying sewing today, it's been a nice departure from painting and drilling holes in the wall in my daughter's bedroom (in makeover progress)!  Making the bag is easier than I thought it would be so far...we'll see though when I get to sewing the handles on.

Alrighty, back to work now...

Hope you have a great day, and also, a sincere thank you to my new followers for joining and for the ones who have been with me over the past make blogging all worthwhile!


P.S.  Check Out My Challenge Partners' Progress:

Join us all on Jan. 31st for a Blog Hop Impossibilities Challenge Link Party !!!

blogging is such a great way to track projects -- and keep them on track, too!

the fabric is adorable--you go!


Vintage Market Place said...

sounds like you are having fun.
Can't wait to see it all finished.
LOL, it is so true, when you need or want something it is no where to be found. Then all of the sudden it appears over and over again when you have already finished your project and settled for what you could find.

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

So happy to see that you are feeling so much better ... and that serious progress has been made!

I'll be cracking open the paint cans tomorrow ...

I think the bamboo handles are going to look great. However here is a site if you are dead set on green. They aren't lucite but acrylic.

STILL in love with the fabric.

Your fabric for the bag is perfect!

I love that fabric! Glad you're feeling better and enjoying the sewing. I hope it stays easy for you!!

Dana @ Cooking At Cafe D said...

Ooh, that strawberry fabric is darling! We used vintage tablecloths for our wedding reception. I need to reuse them somehow...maybe a patchwork quilt?

And, I'm with you on misplacing the green lucite handles. Totally can't find the in-progress shots of the *faux tile* paint job for our Jimmy John's kitchen design. (We was so careful to document the progress, then *poof!* Gone.) The search continues...

I can't wait to see this, also I think the bamboo handles are going to look great. Have fun
