My friend Julie asked me to post some pictures of my other talent-sewing. I make purses, totes and other items. I’ve been doing that for almost 2 years. I am mostly self-taught at sewing like my cooking. About 2 years ago I was shopping for a new purse and just could not find what I needed and wanted in a purse. So I figured I could make something. I dug out my dad’s old sewing machine and bought some cheap fabric at Goodwill and made a little totebag type purse using a free online pattern. From there I began sewing for friends and online customers. I actually sold that first bag to a great lady at my church and made myself another one. Here are some samples of my purses that I have made and sold.
This is my latest purse. I use this one daily and is made from a nice satin and lined with fabric from my wedding dress!
Here is an apron I made for myself and one for a customer. Mine is the one with the piggies on it.
I also making baby items like toys, blankets and burp cloths. And journal covers and coasters and lots of little things. Here are some of those things.
A whole giftset that went to a young pregnant girl I know for her soon to be born daughter.
I have even taken a dress that was about 40 years old and made it into a purse for my aunt.
I hope you have enjoyed my other talent and didn’t mind the diversion from cooking for a day. I am open for business!
