keep on truckin'

napkins from my awesome new fabric from superbuzzy.
apron using some Lotta goodness.....
hobo'ish bag...
new bag from heavy weight leafy fabric...
i feel like i've been at a stand-still when it comes to making new things. i have been sewing alot for etsy sales, but it's all the same stuff. i'm getting bored. i've had a lot on my mind lately and haven't had the motivation or the mental strength to create new ideas.
i have made a few new things in the past week, as shown above...but i need more.
my goal for the weekend is to make some new styles. i made a bag last night from this pretty leaf-print heavy weight fabric that i've had my eye on at Textile for a while now...it finally went on sale from $24/yd to 30%off so i got a half. i love the green's and the print...but once I made the bag, it's something I, myself wouldn't personally carry. it's awesome...it's just not me. i guess i'll always just be a simple tote. i also recently made a hobo style bag that sold pretty fast on etsy, so i'll definitely be making more of those.
i've been really into making napkins and dish rags out of my fabric scraps...i knew i was saving them for a reason. photos to come soon.
so...now i'm off to Mop Top to get my hair did.
