and....we have....a PURSE!

yes folks...its a purse. its a modified version of a pattern i found. adorable eh? im also in LOVE with these amy butler fabrics. very summery. makes me want to go cruz the mall and make all the ladies jealous. muahahaha.

ive spent the day rearranging my house so i can have a sewing spot. its a corner in the living room against my better judgement, cuz my puppy (yellow lab who is 1 1/2 but still a puppy) loves to eat things. im hoping he has outgrown that nasty habit long enough to stay away from my sewing zone. but hey, i could always use a new machine.

im patiently waiting for my butler fabs i bought from ebay. you know ebay...the devils playhouse? omg i curse the person who invented that and paypal. its truly evil to have items that handy-without ever leaving your house. ok i have to walk 3 houses down to get my mail-but thats just still a little TOOOO handy for me. ill have to get rid of my account soon. my fabric stash is growing by leaps and bounds....and as i explained before i just dont have the room for more fabric. gulp...did i really say that?

this weekend im off to phoenix to see what my sewing buddy Heidi has in store for me. we both have a few pattern/surprises for one another. we are hoping to sneak in a few hours of sewing, but with a houseful of people for the 4th of july not sure what we will get done. friday nite we had a "sew in". does this mean we are old ladies now? we both worked on the same project via our blackberrys and finished a quick project together. we are now going to do it atleast once a month. next time, im making margaritas. LOL. i truly wont be drinking alone right? here was our project. this is the bag i modified. this is from a pattern from Sweet Pea Totes. her patterns are adorable!

have a happy 4th of july everyone out there in bloggerville. GOD BLESS AMERICA! God Bless our Troops also because they are the true reason we can celebrate our continued freedom in this crazy world we live in. USA USA USA USA

I am SOOO excited to reveal my new fun bag!! I actually came up with this myself. NO, i cant give myself ALL the credit because it is very close to another bag ive made but i changed a few things and added a bobbi touch. I also added a label!!! THANK YOU HEIDI for the fun label idea! THANK YOU KRISTIE for the bag obsession! ive always been a bag to carry to buy i LOVE LOVE making them. i dont have a big fan base here, but i live in vegas where everyone is carrying couch, prada etc. someday they just might appreciate a good handmade bag. but hey, this way i get to keep them all for me me me.

on the pocket it says "bags by bobbi" with a cute daisy-cuz daisys are my thing. heck, i even have one tatted on top of my foot.

this one was SO fun and easy to create. i love the wild leopard and denim---denim will never get old. I havent sewn much lately but i think this lit the fire back under my arce! I could stay home every day and create. its just too hard after work, after dinner, after dishes. the 2day weekend thing just rarely works cuz im running kids, doing the shopping, doing laundry and trying to stay up late to sew. Creating takes the back seat in my life right now and i hate it!!! But i do love being a mom....and I know that my kids are growing up so flippin fast that i must enjoy this time right now.

so ill quit my whining and just say happy summer. happy sewing. HANDMADE BAGS ROCK
