Vintage Sheets and Tote Bags.

Title pretty much says it all, folks. Today was the sendoff day for the vintage sheet FQ swap I am participating in on flickr, organized this year by the talented Kate of See Katie Sew. What you see here, my friends, it 80 vintage sheet fat quarters. 80. For serious. And I will get 80 back, and on that day, I will prance around like a moron, and make a big pile, and jump in it like Scrooge McDuck, but I will get hurt, because 80 FQ's a big jumping pile does not make. Expect sprained ankles. Anyway, I sent these off today, so alls I have to do now is WAIT.Last week I made a zillion tote bags (read: 15 ) for the craft sale I did on Saturday, where I sold exactly 2. A triumph it was not. But, this means a biggish etsy update, with more coming in the next few days. I am super pleased with how these came out, and I reeeeeally like the new shoulder/messenger bag things that I did. They have a magnetic snap closure and are a great length for carrying as a purse. And they are ships! Also, I am quite fond of the vintage fabric totes, because, c'mon, it is vintage fabric. I dream of this kind of stuff. So, everything is in the etsy shop if you're interested, and more coming soon! Also, take note of my fine (and by fine I mean awkward) modeling work. Somebody call up Tyra! Also, I have grandma hands. That is all.

Oh shut up! You are so cute! How many days have ya been wearin those jeans anyway? Love the new bags. Too bad about the sale. I hate that...when you put yourself out there only to be disappointed. Don't let it get you down you just need the right buyers to come along.
