I dreamed about this little bag.





I try to go to sleep before 11pm these days but its always after I've spent a while crafting. Inevitably I'll lay down and wait for sleep to come but start thinking about what I can make instead. I need to keep a pen and paper next to my bed so I don't waste these thoughts.
This one was about using this fun bedsheet that I found in Seattle and some old fabric from Oklahoma and doing something nautical. I finally finished it late last night. The buttons were an after thought but I think they really make it special. I've put interfacing in it to make it more sturdy and it is fully lined in a fun turquoise print. There is a small pocket on the inside and two larger buttons sewn onto the end of a 'too long' strap for camoflauge. You never know when you'll need a button!
It feels like summer time and is going up in the Etsy shop today.
I'll try to get another tutorial up for a simple tote bag like this one soon. I'm so glad everyone liked the coin purse. If you've had a chance to make one, send us a link to a pic. I'd love to see what it looks like!

I didn't see it in the shop. Did someone buy it already? Too bad because I really want it! How much was it? Any chance you will make another?

Well, it looks like the first one found a home! I do have the material for two more so I'll be working on those this week. If you'd like to order one directly, e-mail me: redvelvetart@hotmail.com

I'm sorry to say that it was me! But I am also so excited to say it was me! I was frantically moving through the check-out process, sure that it was going to go before I could push PAY! Thanks for making my Monday morning full of summer inspiration!

Totally love this!! How awesome that inspiration strikes and you actually use it. (There's a glitch in there for me.)
