    That cat one is just too cute. If I was at the craft show Id be drawn straight to that one. They are all beautiful though. Great job.

    They are all beautiful and your selection is great. The one with the cats and the cat button is so cute. Great job. I'm sure you will sell out in a hurry. Good luck.

    Too bad that you are so far away, a friend of mine would love that "cat" bag. Your bags are so well made - hope everything sells out. Good luck.

    Your purses look so well made! What do you use to make them so crisp looking? Do you use a special stiff interfacing or something to keep them from drooping. I'd love to know how well they sell at your craft fair. I've often thought of doing a booth at one of our local events, but was afraid I would be stuck with more "gifts" than I needed. (My reasoning is, "Well if they don't sell I can use them as Christmas and b'day gifts." LOL!) I've thought of doing a mixture of bags, table toppers, wall hangings, baby quilts, etc. But I've stayed busy enough with custom hand quilting that I've not had a lot of play time in the sewing room.

    like your purses...what size are they. Did you use a commercial pattern or did you create your own? What price range?

    Your bags are very pretty, and so nicely made. I just made a black and white Bow Tucks, but I think I like yours better! I love your black and white fabric. Good luck with the craft fair. You should do very well!

    These are so nice! I know you will sell a lot of them. You do have a lot of subjects covered for most anyone.

    Lets see ... I spy with my little eye ... Bow Tucks and Miranda or Mini Miranda?

    I love your bags and fabrics are fab choices! The horse bag with the scoop for your underarm is that your own design or is that a purchased pattern?

    Yep, Bow Tuck, though I started with that pattern, then started to customize them, enlarging, reducing, changing closures, leaving off ties, front pockets, etc. Miranda is one of my favorites! I haven't altered those yet, except for the tab closures. The scoop tote was a pattern from McCalls magazine. After you make so many, you can really tweak them to make them your own.

    I use different interfacings for different purses. Mostly, I love Pellon Fusible fleece 987, which is soft but still gives some padding. I use it for the outside and lining. I use Craft Fuse 808, Decor Bond 809, and a few others if I want more of a stiffness than soft padding. In have never done a craft show, so if they don't sell between the one Nov 10 and another Dec 1, my female members of the family will be getting them, and I already have a boutique and resort in Vanuatu that sell them, so I will just take them with me when I go in March. I took 29 last time and they all sold out
    quickly. I really want to get back to my quilting, so after this, I will take a purse break for a while to get my McKenna Ryan Birdhouse quilt done. However, if they sell really well, I might just have to squeeze a few more in!!
