Note to Self Saturday: Just Try It...

So - the other day Lela from Glittersniffer started chatting about a trade... I needed a couple late xmas gifts... and of course - more of her amazing shades... and well - she (like most ;) needed some RockerByeBaby goodness...  so we talked about some little pouches... and an adult blanket... but the kicker? She wanted a purse... well we all know if you want a rad bag you go to Brooke, from Brooke Van Gory... But I thought, what the heck... its been awhile since I have gotten to sew anything other than blankets & bedding... so id give it a shot... At first I was just gunna make her a super simple tote out of the Midnight Snack fabric she loved... but... but... but... that MY favorite fabric too! (well, one of many, lol) So I couldn't send something so plain... I broke into my personal stash of fabrics and pulled out the dots that will be used for my curtains in the office... found some fuchsia ribbon... and started cutting... Now - one of the things that makes RockerByeBaby so special is I do not use patterns. Never once in all my years of sewing... if I wanna make something I figure out how. Somehow, in my brain i can just look at something and know how to sew it... So it one shot... no re-cutting... no tearing out stitches... I made Lela what i think might be the cutest thing I have ever made... and I gotta say... i dont really wanna send it off, haha... but I must... I just hope she loves it just as much as I do!! I left the edges raw by the ties... then knotted (and glued for strength) the fabric to the wide double sided satin ribbon. Then to finish it off I added a Purple snap if she wants to be able to keep it closed...

Lela - I know this was supposed to be a surprise... but its just too cool (and im too proud, lol not to show it off...

Thanks for listening to me gloat, lol Im done now... OH! one more thing... As you see in the photos... I made a new watermark to lay over the photos instead of just the text! And its also my new blog signature too :) YAY! Its amazing what you can do with a little free time.
