Running with Scissors and Thread

Okay, I'm going to be overwhelming everyone with pictures in this post! I've been sewing like a mad-woman lately, and I've gotten so many things done I want to show you! I have this addiction to sewing where once I start a purse, I feel like it needs to be finished that day. So I've pretty much been attached to my sewing machine the past three days, and I LOVE it =) Each of these purses are in my Etsy Shop too!

Here is my pride and joy! I loved this fabric when I saw it, and I wanted to come up with a unique design for it. I put loops that the coordinating striped fabric could go through, and I think it turned out so cute! I love the decorative trim on each loop and the pleats under them! I think it really gives the purse character. 

Here's another trendy purse, and I think the chic fabric flower with the button really adds an extra touch to it. I love the size of it, and most of all how the black and pink offset each other so well. What do you think?

After these two purses, I had to change it up a bit and make a wristlet! I love the hounds-tooth fabric. It's a classic and can be worn for so many occasions. I love how the button coordinates so well with the look of the wristlet.

...And we're going back to purses! This is such a cute, casual purse that reminds me of Summer! I love the flower print down the sides. It's so unique because you can either close it with the cute button, or use the drawstrings to cinch the top. 

 You can check out my Etsy Shop to take a closer look at each of these purses, too! 

Here's a purse I made for a customer who wanted navy and tan together. I think the colors turned out beautifully together and the lace was the perfect choice for an accent! It's a very pretty quilted purse.

And last but not least, here is the finished order of wristlets for a bride who is going to give them as gifts to her bridesmaids! I thought that was a really fun idea! I made them in her wedding colors, which is a beach theme in turquoise and champagne. What do you think?

Here are two of them up close. I love the colors together and the decorative trim on each one makes them look so stylish! If your interested in one of them, I do have pictures of each of them up close I can send to you!

Well, thank you very much for looking around! I'll be parked at my sewing machine all day tomorrow most likely, so I'm sure I'll have some new things to post soon! I'm working on some hot pads right now and they are looking good so far. I figured with Mother's Day coming up, they would be a cute gift for someone. I'll see you back soon!
