scraps and squares


I went through a lot of my stuff this past week. I tend to hoard little bits and scraps in hopes of someday churning out beautiful quilts that remind me of all of the little projects I made from all of this fabric. Since I only have the patience for one - two day projects and I am the bag making fanatic, I came up with this messenger bag. I am going to try to sell it next weekend at the craft show in Highland. I do have secret plans for this one if no one has the same love for it. It just might be mine. I have been taking more and more process pics so I am going to bore you with the details.
Small bits...

made into bigger bits...
into bigger bits...
made into resting place for Scottie...
and then wrestled away to finish this bag.

cute bag!! I would have never thought of using D rings to close a messenger bag. Great idea.

Awesome use of scrappage! I usually make headbands with mine but a lot of times the scraps just aren't big enough.
Nice to know there's a fellow craftster down the road. I'm in Belleville!

Hi. I just found your blog from crafster.org. I love your stuff. Thanks for the tutorials. I know they are hard work.

Thank you! As long as people appreciate the tutorials, I am going to keep on making them up. I have been getting awesome feedback and kind words since I started making up up the tutorials. I figure that I have been taking in all of this great info for so many years, it is time I give back.
