Beachy MsKRS

Hey Hey Hey Folks!
I’m trying to keep up with my sewing and my blog so here goes another ;)…..I was trying to come up with something to sew today….I thought about the Style Shopper in Amy Butler’s book but I didnt want to part with that much material and interfacing (her bag patterns call for a lot of supplies)….then I thought about teaching myself a new technique out of my faves new book (Lisa Lam) but I got sidetracked looking at Old Navy’s site…..While surfing the site (no pun intended lol) , I saw a few totebags with super cool, raw edges, grommets, and applique that I thought was the cutest thing…It was on sale for $10.00 and I would have gladly given them those dollars for any one of the totes they offer….but since I have been blessed to sew, I decided to make my own version of it….It was fun for me too because I got to use some of the supplies that I seldom use in my sewing such as fabric spray and glitter, I didnt have any grommets…that would have been a new skill to add to my resume as well because I have never installed grommets before….tonight I am going to tie-dye some more letters for another similar tote….I am so glad I sew…I can always have something tailored to ME….

The applique is glittered and the front is spritzed with fabric spray!…I had fun with this bag I tell you what! (in my Hank Hill voice)…:D

The back….


Glitter and fabric spray by Tulip…Good finds and friggin’ fun to use!… by the end, I had glittery fingers and overspray everywhere! LOL!

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
