I’m Super-Hip!

Look what I found in the December issue of Parents magazine!

It’s a little blurb about Etsy, that tells how “super-hip” moms are into buying handmade.  Maybe now when I tell people I sell things on Etsy someone will know what I’m talking about.

Speaking of Etsy, I’ve listed another bag in my Etsy shop.  It’s my newest style, which I call the “coming and going” bag.  It features a center front seam which makes for a different look from the front and back when it’s slung over your shoulder.

When I was working on this pattern, I came to the realization that I could no longer avoid the magnetic snap.  This bag really needed a closure, so I gathered up my courage and installed a magnetic snap with the help of this great tutorial from Craft Apple.  It was way easier than I thought it would be, and made for a super-professional looking finish.  I will definitely be making more of this style of bag!

    You ARE super hip. Not just ‘cuz you sell on Etsy, but because your bags are SO CUTE! You’ve really got a way with fabric and design. It’s a beautiful bag. And I’m glad you’re over the magnetic snap fear. I’m still scared of zippers! :o)
