I am going to start naming my bags! The above style is called the Valerie Bag. It is the smallest of all the bags I have made so far. I started off by making an oval base for the Valerie bag but the bottom was too difficult to sew on!! I spent several hours sewing and ripping the bottom and finally gave up. Maybe there is a method to attaching the base, but I have most definitely not found it!
On the the bag making supplies side, I received my order from Tall Poppy Craft today. When I found the site, I did not realize that they were based in Australia! Imaginge ordering bag making supplies from Australia when there are many places to buy such stuff right here in the US! I found everything I needed on the site and continued with my order. One of the items I have not found on any of the sites that I looked at is leather handles for hand bags. I also found some colorful braided handles.
I might just do what Kitman of Knit Your Love suggested. Set up an Etsy store! Yes, sell my bags and my jewelry at an Etsy store. Actually I have been thinking about setting up an Etsy store for a while. Maybe now is the time!
