June Newsletter

Happy June everyone!

Just a personal note to begin with. Today is May 29th and it is my 37th anniversary! I can't believe it has been that long! It seems like yesterday that we were married. It is great to have such a wonderful companion and soul mate!

I hope the summer (or winter, depending on where you are) is going well for you! We mowed our lawn and got 10 bags of grass from a SMALL lawn! That is telling me that summer has finally arrived in Idaho!

I have been so busy working out this FUN pattern, so without further adieu you will find the picture below. I have been searching for years for the perfect handbag. I have never found it until I made it myself! Now doesn't that seem to be how we have to do things? This handbag has FIVE pockets. Two of them are zippered. The bag is fully lined and has a bit of batting and interfacing to make it sturdy. The added quilt block design on the flap is just the ticket for a very CUTE (I'm sure there is a better word, I just can't think of it right now! LOL!) handbag! There are three quilt block patterns included with the handbag pattern. I made three of these handbags in three days, they are so FUN! Well anyway, here is a picture. Click HERE for more details.

"Flap"ulous Scrap Handbag

I'm sure you would like to make one of these for yourself or as a gift! The pattern includes a lot of pictures to help you through the process which is actually very easy! Okay, here is the picture of the finished product! I really hope you enjoy this pattern. Remember, there is NO SHIPPING on any patterns. I had a TON of fun working out all the details. I am using the black and white one as my own handbag for now. I may change tomorrow! Or make another one or two. They are really fun to make!
I am still keeping the 10% discount on Christmas stockings. Hope you all take advantage of the savings. Remember also that all shipable product will ship free for a $50.00 or more order! Here is one of our new designs.
