Another purse and a tutorial Well I didn't get to posting a tutorial on my Anthro knock off purse yesterday, because I showed a pic to my mom and she said "I want one"! So being that Mother's day is Sunday and I hadn't bought her a gift yet, I said "Sure"! So I spent my free time yesterday and this morning making her the purse, which I will be mailing today. Yeah she won't get it by Sunday, but at least it's something she will love :) I made hers a bit different than mine. For one I lined the inside pockets to make them nicer and sturdier.

We're doing some traveling this summer and I decided Bean needed his own little piece of luggage. Heart Shaped Pouch Mini-Tutorial I know a lot of you have asked for this heart pouch tutorial and I finally finished it! First, I want to let everyone know that I’ve finished and posted the licensed version of the Circle Zip Earbud Pouch. I’ve completely re-written the tutorial with new photos, an improved technique and the same PDF format as my other patterns with the same license so that you can make items to sell in your Etsy shops or at craft fairs. I was completely overwhelmed with the interest in the Earbud Pouch, so thank you to everyone who has made one (or twenty!)

Super Easy Petal Clutch Isn't this fun? It was so easy, I can hardly stand it!! Ever since I saw Jessica's tutorial at Happy Together for the petal backpack (you've all seen that by now, right??) I've been thinking about this little vintage clutch I picked up at a thrift store once (for a quarter!!).

Osoberry bag pattern A new bag for a new season – the Osoberry bag by Kate from FoxFlat. Made from large fabric scraps and/or thrifted clothing items (this bag is made from some IKEA fabric and two pairs of ladies’ pants), and the construction is simple enough to make this a one-day project. I like a good fabric handbag. They’re inexpensive to make, so I don’t feel guilty about owning a half dozen. They’re washable, which is great for me and my exploding pens and leaking lunch containers (and good for you too – they can carry anything from books and laptops to nappies, craft projects and shopping).
