Leather or Not

Lately I've been finding the most gorgeous upholstery samples in smaller sizes, really cool little pieces that are generally about 6 inches square. I've done some patchworking with them, of course, but then one day it hit me: Zipper bags!

These are a few I just finished with a leather bottom. I have to be honest, working with leather isn't my favorite. It's generally temperamental and hard on needles, and it just doesn't glide through the sewing machine the way fabric does. But I can't deny that they really elevate a zipper pouch. I think these would be just the thing to carry your phone and lipstick on a night out.

New Look, Same Great Taste

Astute readers will notice that I've got a new banner on my blog. The old logo, cute as it was, was just something I found on Vistaprint and not terribly original. So I've been on the hunt for something better and when I saw a painting my husband did, I asked him to transform it into a digital file. And thus, the new and improved logo. I just got the business cards in the mail and have updated my Etsy shop, as you can see above.

I've been keeping busy with a couple of side sewing jobs, and restocking a few stores nearby, but I've got some shows coming up in October and November (and hopefully December). So I'll be making lots of new things and showing them off here. Don't change that dial!
