Something my best friend made for me.

I've been madly trying to work on my new project and it's taking a long time.  I've really noticed that I have slowed down in my number of posts I make and I feel that I may lose my loyal followers attention.  I guess that quality of my project is very important to me and I want to do a good job on it.  So, I thought that I would share something different in the next few upcoming posts.

This is not really a papercraft, nor something I made.  However, it was made for me from someone I consider as my best friend and something so pretty, I just had to share it with you.  Although you guys are paper crafters, I myself, wished that I can sew and I'm sure that some of you can sew to appreciate the detail put in to them.

This special person is my mom.  I've been living with her for the past few months and while I do my papercrafting, she does sewing - namely, bag making.  She only started this a couple of months ago, and she's made over 10 bags!  She's given me 4 of them!  I'm going to be taking the next few blog posts to share some special creations that she's made for me!  I am stocked up in bags - I just need special places to go now! 

My first one to show you is probably my favorite one.  It's made with black linen fabric, with inside cotton designer fabric purchased from Stitchsteals.  It's reversible, and has a pretty flower with ribon that can be taken off - not that I would ever take it off!  I love the way it hangs, I just love how much it fits inside, everything about it is so me.  The person modelling for me is my mom, by the way :)


  1. That is so pretty! It looks like it can go either casual or totally chic. Your mom does terrific work.

  2. Your projects are wonderful and totally worth the wait so don't worry. It's nice seeing some different stuff sometimes and this bag is awesome! Is you mom going to sell them in the future? I do a lot of crafts, but I wish with all my might I knew how to sew. Andrea

  3. You will never loose me as a follower... Your mothers does wonderful work....I would like one in PINK lol......

  4. Tell your Mom that I like her jam and her "bomb" bags, they are the bomb mamasita! You are one lucky girl, and she's a lucky Mom. I'm with the rest your totally worth the wait. Don't feel like you have to rush, we just might actually have to do something ourselves instead of living vicariously through you...I can't wait til your house is all ready for the move IN!

  5. Cool bag!! Your mom should sell them on Etsy! :-)
    As for the wait, you are silly... You? losing your loyal followers? Nonsense!!
    Good things are worth waiting for! :-)
