Excess baggage

To celebrate the fact that my crafty mojo appears to have returned I spent my day off sewing.

I think I've decided that bags are my favourite thing to make.

I spent the morning cutting out four bags. I managed to get two of them made and they are now in the shop.

Soft and creamy velvet




...and cool blue cotton





There's another cream one in the pipeline and a duck egg blue canvas beauty both incorporating my favourite Chocolate Lollipop fabrics. With luck I'll get them made tomorow.

Feels good to be in the sewing seat again :)

oh, check out you with the clever zippy thing. Glad to see that mojo came back. What would you have done had it upped and off for good?! (shudder at the thought)

You are most welcome for the return of your mojo. I am glad my final act of deityhood was positive.

Seriously, those are lovely; I hope you are praising the goddess Trashy!

Rachel said...

Ooh, more lovely bags! I still haven't quite got to grips with zippers, it's something else on my "must learn how to do" list!
Thanks for all your lovely comments too!

Your bags are as lovely as your lounge pants. And they have zips too. Much loveliness came from your day off - so pleased you enjoyed your day, and that we can enjoy the labours of your day.

Are you all better now? x

Gina said...

The bags are amazing - so professional looking!

Emma said...

Loving those bags - much prettier than my eye bags that's for sure!

Glad you're feeling a bit better

Fab bags Lesley ..... hurrah for the refound mojo!! I have a note to have a bash with your zippy version soon.

Leanne said...

Fab bags..you may have guessed I am just catching up hence the flurry of comments.

Thimbleanna said...

Oooh yummy Lesley! They're beautiful. I love the zipper tops too!

Leigh said...

Oh Lesley, I have missed you and your blog so much! I love the banner, the bags and the chicken! You just crack me up!!! However, I am still jealous of your crafting talents and for being mum's fav!

the vicious chicken said...

Possibly the only thing that surpasses those fab bags you've made is the even more fab pun-tastic blog post title! I do love a good pun... and who doesn't love a good bag?

Glad your mojo is back and in fine fettle :o)

They are so cute Lesley!! Send some of that crafty mojo my way please! I started a project today but accomplished so little, that it was embarrassing.
