we had a great holiday with thte family, did you??
For a gift to myself I made a new purse.
I really love the laminated canvas that Orla Kiely makes. I was first directed to it by Valorie Wells when I accosted her in her store to ask her who made her fabulous purse. Then after some online research through Anthropologie, and then to the Orla Kiely site I ended up buying the purse you see with the multi dots. The last time I was at the Stitchin Post ( Valorie’s store) I picked up one yard of this really great laminated canvas by Echino. I have used this print before, but now its laminated! So, since I only had one yard, and I wasn’t completely sure what kind of purse I wanted, I based my shape off of the Orla bag I already had, because I love it. Then added personalized pockets, and a median divider from more of the laminated goodies. The red leather handles are re purposed from another purse that bit the dust.
The New Year fast approaches, for some perspective, I looked back at my new years post for 09, I realized a lot has happened in a year. As it usually does. I was able to continue making the baby carriers, I have made progress in my own knowledge of sewing, mostly in my efficiency at it. I am excited for the opportunities than ’10 presents. There are several things I hope to change in my routine, so I can be a more productive person and a better mother.
What are your new years resolutions, or rather, goals?
