Breaking the ice...

Hmmm.. not sure how to start my first post, so I guess I'll just dive in.



I started this blog to share some of my DYI projects.  Most of the projects will be sewing ones.. specifically bags and purses.  I begun sewing about 3 years ago after my son was born.  When I was on maternity leave I begun browsing for some handmade pouches on Etsy and thought I'd like to trying making some myself.  Google searches resulted in a lot of online tutorials and that's where I started.  I begun with a simple card holder and have slowly progressed to making handbags/purses.  Sometimes they are gifted to others, but they mainly get added to my collection!

I will probably also blog about other things I do and make, including cake decorating, baking and random crafty stuff.

To start things off here is one of the first things I made 3 years ago - a card holder based on this tutorial.

 
 
 
And here is the last bag I made, based on a pattern I drafted myself.
 


I'll be posting a few more pictures in the "Finished Projects" page.
