This is going to be photo heavy, so be warned. :lol: I'm not going to cut it, as there's not as much traffic here, anymore, and I am tired. No sleep last night - elbow hurt, and 3 dogs in bed is too many. Anyway.

Let's begin with Miss Suki, the newest canine member of our family:

Suki Outside

Suki Sitting

She is very sweet, very smart, and very much still a puppy. Current destruction count: 3 shoes, 5 toys, and 2 wooden coat hangers.

We have somehow acquired a new rooster - he just appeared last week. We're calling him Nomad:

The slipcovered sofa in my Studio:

THAT was a fun project! I did it so you can still use the sleeper without having to remove the cover - THAT was interesting.

Next up - the bags I've been working on. The pattern is Swoon Bag's "Nora Doctor's Bag", in the Traveler (largest) size:

Chicken Bag Side

Chicken Bag totes

This is, of course, the bag for the Chickens (could you guess? :lol:) I LOVE the fabric! This was the first one - it's not perfect, but it's close. I LOVE it! I feel...well, I feel like this has upped my sewing game! The "totes" are actually modified purse organizers; the bag is so big inside that the meds were rolling around and I was afraid they would break. The totes don't have pockets, but they will keep the bottles all nice and tidy.


Critter Bag Side

This bag is for the 4-legged critters. I...OK, I don't like yellow, but I LOVE how this bag turned out! It's better than the chicken bag, not perfect, but better. I left the inside pocket out of this one - don't need it.

I liked those bags so much, I decided I NEEDED a purse. Not just ANY purse, but a STAR WARS purse:

It is the middle sized bag; it holds my current (non-themed) organizer perfectly. I will be making a "matching" organizer, because Why Not? :lol:

Here's a size comparison:

There's 1 smaller size included in the pattern, but it was just a titch too small for the organizer. I NEED the organizer, so.....:shrug:

I have a few more bags planned, but not this pattern/style. I'm moving away from leather bags (for now), so I want to get a few more styles made up so I can alternate them and spread the wear.

I highly recommend Swoon's patterns - they are well-written, the instructions are clear, and you end up with an awesome bag!

Gotta skitter!
