Sew On

Ok weekend is here I got a little of my sewing done yesterday and today not much but, a little.

Oh by the way want to say that I have sold my first item on Etsy YAY me :) This purse Photobucket has been sold to a wonderful woman I talk to in the Etsy forum she checked out my shop and brought my purse. So far so good.

Oh set up a weekend CAL for the surprise stitch thought that it would be good to do a surprise weekend stitch with my CAL group so I want to try to give that stitch a try that I put up for us all to try. So for those that want to come and join our CAL and learn a new stitch twice a week then come on and join us. So far there are 16 of us and still counting.

Oh also to my Swap Swap Gals I got our swap partners listed so can't wait to start swapping have a couple of things I need to get making for my swap partner ASHLEY. She's a doll. I call her Ripple Queen. "SMILE Ashley" you know you want to. LOL. Ok enough about teasing Ashley lol.

Ok now own with the SEW.

Made this big bag for a friend of mines I am so hoping she likes it. It is denim with a nice pretty glitter glam glitter on the front with one pocket on the inside and a magnet snap with one long strap. Hoping she likes it.
Check it out. Photobucket Front

Photobucket Inside.

So what you all think?

Ok made two small purses I want to put on Etsy
This purse is the same fabric used on the purse I will give to my friend.




Close up on front. Has glitter glam glitter on the front middle with some glitter color circle things that I sewn on. With 2 straps, magnet snap.

Now this purse is my favorite. The pink denim I had left over from another purse I made awhile back the pink fabric on the inside for the lining I had left over from another purse I made so here goes. As you can see I don't throw throw away nothing. Keep my fabric until I can find something else to do with it.

I call this purse Flirt, you can see way below.




Close up on flirt.
So there you have it my sew on projects. Now I have to get back to my crocheting now my hooks are missing me lol.

Ok got to go. Everyone have a great weekend.:) Take care. - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more

LOve the purses! The flirt purse is very cute! Lesa, since Ashley is the ripple queen, I think you need to be the Purse Queen!

Laurah said...

I like the 'Flirt' purse the best too. Very creative. I just love your purses and I'm so jealous that you can sew.
Congrats on the Etsy sale! You should do something to celebrate. Perhaps some more yarn is in order?

Mimi said...

Good job on the purses Lesa, I love it all!

Zuleika said...

You sold something already!? You go! I see you've been pretty busy; as usual. :-) I love the new purses! I hope they sell just as quickly for you.

Happy Sunday. I purchased the DvDs from The DvDs are great and found them less expensive than the others on the internet.

Laura said...

Great purses, especially the pink one! After seeing your sewing projects, I really want to learn how to sew, at least to be able to do hemming - I'm only 5 feet tall, and I get so frustrated finding clothes that fit. Even "petite" sized clothes are often still too long on me. Maybe one of these days I'll get around to taking a sewing class at Joann's. Congratulations on your first sale! If you've never been to it, check out You can post a profile on there, and maybe drum up some more business for your Etsy shop. I found a lady through that website here in the Cleveland area, who has a crochet/knitting/sewing blog (LazyMama Designs) and Etsy shop, and I've bought a few things from her.
