The Place Where Dreams (or, Ok, Totebags,) Are Made.
Thanks to everyone for the positive feedback on the birdie fabric. I think I will go ahead and do both, as many of you suggested, and I have already started on a few tote bags featuring the birdies. I think that on the next run, I will make several different colors... I really like how the kelly green swatch came out, any ideas for a third color? Aww, the Baxter. And now, of course, some bags. I've been on a real bag-kick lately, otherwise known as a "lets-try-to-make-something-we-can-sell-with-all-of-these-many-accumulated-materials-because-we're-poor" kick. You know. But I find that the more bags I make, the more I enjoy the process, I guess that since it is becoming automatic, it is easier to slip into that "zen" state of making. Not that I usually throw the word zen around, because, I am the eye-roller who tends to avoid it, but, you know that place where you just kind of lose it all in what you're doing? Anyway, yay for sewing, and yay for This American Life, Turkish radio, and iPod shuffle mode!
