Today's bags and my new tags



Here are the bags I made today. All totes and one of each size. I've been making lots of the shoulder bags lately, so I thought I try to get a few more totes done. I made another wallet for Jon too...in cherry red this time and with the opening to the right side instead of the left.
Done sewing for today- it's time for a nap before work. Two long night shifts ahead, so I like to try to start with a little extra sleep-boost. I don't know if it helps, but it can't hurt.
Devon is off to Fright Night at Playland tonight with some friends. Jon was volunteering at FreeGeek today and then off to his night class tonight. Alison is out at a friend's house...so it's just me and the doggies here for now. I guess everybody will have some of the Hoison Chicken (recipe from a blog I added to my list today- a woman who is using her slow cooker everyday for a year!) if and when they get home.

Here are my new product labels. I got a tip here http://isewblog.blogspot.com/2007/06/making-your-own-labels.html for making my own using printable fabric sheets. I ordered the fabric from Joann's online. I just cut them to size and sew them into each item. They are fabric on the front and a kind of vinyl material on the back, so they don't fray. This picture isn't the greatest- I tried to use the macro on the camera and I don't think it worked, and then the batteries died....oh well, you get the idea. Cute, huh?

Thanks Teresa. I am happy with how they turned out. I have to print some more in a smaller font for my wallets and coin purses.

I have a similar bag I got for Christmas last year....and I use it almost everyday. So washable and I constantly get comments on how cool is that!

Hearted your shop for when I need another.

thank you! I would love to see a pic of your bag if you have one:-)

OMG- I LOVE your soaps! Going shopping there later when I have time to browse them all:-)
