Here are a couple more photos of bags that I have made and sold. These are pretty deep tote bags, about 17-1/2 inches deep and about 13 inches wide. Its really been fun to make different fabric arrangements and then really really fun to know that people want and buy them from me.

This is my Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along Block #8. Four blocks to go and then we will put it all together. I've been saying that I wanted to start making another set using Christmas fabrics but I have not done that. To much to do!

With all that I already do, I am starting another project. I really think that learning how to sew is a dying art. They just don't teach sewing in schools anymore and more and more people are relying on purchased clothing and throwing them out because of not knowing how to mend them. With the economy that all of us are going through, it would just be nice if more of us knew how to sew. In my neighborhood starting this Sat. I will be teaching anyone who wants to learn how to sew, sewing lessons. We will be doing it every other Saturday morning for the summer and then see how it goes once school starts.

Let you know how it goes.


  1. Wonderful projects! Good for you! I hope you bring in many more young ones to love sewing and quilting!

  2. Congratulations on a very worthwhile activity. It is heartening to hear that more women are interested in sewing of any sort. My life would have been so lacking in enjoyment w/o my pleasure in fabrics, and creating something out of them. I hope your lessons inspire a whole lot of new enthusiasts. A dirty little secret, though.......I loathe mending anything. I'd rather start from scratch! Michele
