Not Too Shabby...

...for a Shabby Tote, that is.
I finished the model for my next class. Now, to write the pattern for it.
Sewn with sweet, floral fabric, vintage lace and button, a dreamy image
and a floral accent on the pocket, all merging to become one girly bag.

 It can be sewn with or without batting. Then, add a pocket inside
for your keys or cell phone and voila! Grab your tote and head off
to the nearest flea market, shop or event to show off your creation.
You know your friends will want one, too! They make great gifts.
I'm really excited to share my pattern and techniques with the 
students who sign up for this class.  It's going to be so much fun!
Just imagine them bringing all their own laces, buttons and trim
to class and then letting their imaginations run wild. Wheee!

Once the pattern is written, I'll also be able to share it with you
via Craftsy. I'll let you know when it's up on my shop site, so you
can play with your vintage stash, too! I'll also have little kits that
will include the outside fabric, and image of your choice with
coordinating vintage lace, just in case you'd like a little headstart.
I'll put those up in my Etsy shop. I guess I'd better write that pattern!

Today, I'll be teaching "Flutterby" at Crazy Quilters. 
There really is nothing quite so rewarding as the look on a student's
face when you can tell they've learned a technique you're teaching.
I'm going to be looking for that today.

I hope you have a creative day today, too.
Later, girlfriends!

Definitely not shabby - quite elegant. Love the idea of you creating a pattern and selling it on Crafty.
