Over the last week I have been making satchels, a few yorkiepies and then I decided to make a bigger one which i named a Porkiepie. I'm really pleased with it turned out, and have plans to make many of them in a host of different fabrics. Their size makes them great for a mini nappy bag, that will fit over the back of a pram or stroller.
Other than that I have had a few orders for Large Tote bags. The new machine makes a breeze out of sewing them. I'm so pleased about buying it. I've yet to try the embroidery function, but I will get around to it. I'm trying to also make a large make up bag for a custom order. I had great feedback from my facebook page on what ladies would like from their make up bag. Anywhoo..on wednesday I had a date with some heatnbond(vinyl) and some lining fabric, and I don't think it will turn into a long lasting relationship...lol... I felt like i was back at school applying Contact to my school books, bubbles everywhere. Since then I've decided my makeup bags will be fully machine washable.
In other news I will be working full time on Selkie Smith from April...yeehah!!!!! Very excited about that. I can't wait to start immersing myself completely in the business and doing some markets and hopefully listing on madeit. I found a great Wooden tree coat rack this week which will be great for hanging my bags from. I know i'm going to love the markets, will enjoy the instant feedback and also i'm going to do them with one of my best friends Laura from Sunny Side Up!!
Ok little Miss C is whinging in my ear, so must cut this post short. We will be on holidays for the first week of March, so I will post again in a couple of weeks.
