Sucking up Summer

You guys know about Spoonflower, right? They've been around long enough now that it's hard not to have come into contact with their realm of e-shopping awesomeness, but in case you aren't in on the whole wicked addiction, take my advice and go check it out. But be warned, it's a brothel for fabric whores, and you will not escape without buying something. But it will be so, so worth it. I promise.

A while ago I succumbed to...ahem....several of the gazillion awesome user-generated fabric patterns over at Spoonflower, and those fabrics have been burning a hole in my worktable ever since.

I've been hip-deep in sewing lately, keeping busy with day-to-day orders and trying to get my stock up to date and replenished for an upcoming show. And so I figured it was high time I got to work on doing something with some of that Spoonflower awesomeness.
Behold:
olive awesome
lavender madness

Seriously. Aren't those fabrics JUST. TOO. MUCH? And I must say I'm pretty darn happy with the bags they got made into, too. In fact, that purplely business is my new favorite color of leather, and I may or may not have made two of that particular beauty so that I can keep one for myself.

Anyway. Those are just a tease. I have several other new styles and a whole bunch of new leathers and I'll be premiering them all this Saturday at the Spirit of the Lakes Festival in Mound. Come have a look and a chat and a gawk at the locals (I predict they'll be in the beer tent). The art show is 11-7, with some pretty awesome fireworks to follow if you want to stick around.
And psssssst! There's mini-donuts. Just in case you can't make it another month until the state fair.

Holy crap those are made of awesomeness. And I'm not even a bag lady. But even I can recognize a $400 purse when I see it. Please don't sell that for less than I think it's worth, okay? Because then I might feel compelled to buy it. <3
