Hedgehogs, Dots and Gingham, Oh My!

I finally got the courage to cut into some of my imported japanese fabrics, and the first victim project was the pink hedgehogs, which I turned into this purse and wallet set. 

 Japanese Hedgehog Purse and Wallet

I love the combination with red dots and brown gingham to set off the whimsical print.  And for once, I finished the project, and promptly photographed and listed it in my Etsy shop.  I think I was afraid I’d keep it if I put off selling it.  But, there is some more fabric, so I may make another one, or more likely, something different but equally adorable.

Take a look at the listing in my Etsy, and you’ll also find that I’ve listed the Moda Blossom Tote shown in a previous entry as well.

In an attempt to make the pages a little more user-friendly, I have moved my tutorials to separate pages accessible by the tabs at the top of the blog.  Hopefully, this will enable each page to load more quickly.  Thanks, and happy stitching!

A pictoral introduction to my craftiness, the bag edition.

This “japanese” bag is for a trade.  I have plenty more of these fabrics, so I’ll probably put one like it on Etsy.  This morning’s project is the matching wallet.

I love the “Fall” colors I used in this bag and wallet.  Sadly, I only bought a little of each, so this one is a limited edition of one.

Here is a messenger bag I made with owl applique.

I think this bag and wallet set has the “shabby chic” look.  I have a similar one that I carry sometimes.

This Kitty backpack was a fun experiment, I drafted the pattern myself.  Future editions will be a bit bigger (this one is toddler sized) and may have different animal themes.

This bag I call “black and white and red all over”.  This is the one I am currently carrying, even though it’s far more sophisticated than my usual choices.  I have gotten tons of compliments on it!

This wallet is made with a pattern I drafted myself.  It has two lagre pockets for cash or reciepts (depending on if you’re at the begining or end of your shopping trip), and eight credit card pockets.

And finally, this diaper bag was a special custom order.  It has a “very hungry caterpillar theme.  It is a large messenger style bag with a zip-top under the flap, front and inside pockets and very intricate applique work.  I LOVE how it came out!

A bag of scraps turned into a scrappy bag.

I posted earlier about how I was able to buy a bag of scraps of Amy Butler fabrics for $5. Here is what my find turned into.
