Handmade Fun Saturday

What are you working on this weekend?  I have been busy designing and making purses, in-between making skirts and tops and backpacks for my two grand daughters, ages 6 & 9, who live with me.

 This is the carousal horse the six year old picked out for a purse, that turned into a pillow, then she decided she wanted a backpack.  We should have this one finished by Monday for her to take to school.

I recently finished this quilted shoulder bag and had a ball designing it!  I will be putting up a tutorial for this when I get time.  It has lots of pockets inside for phone, keys, pens, notepads, etc.

Leave a comment and link to your weekend project!  I love seeing what everyone is making!

I love it! The quilting makes it so professional looking. Is that a button for the closure or umm what do they call it?? a Japanese knot? Anyway, it is very pretty. Once her friends see it you will be very busy, (making more of them)!

Yes it is a Japanese knot. I had never made one before and was pretty proud when I did this one and it actually looked nice!

Your projects turned out very nice! I just started working on some Valentine's Day animal magnets.
