I'm a sewing fiend

I made a quilted purse for myself earlier this year and, after showing it off, I got a bunch of requests for them as Christmas Presents

I have been sewing like crazy for the las couple of weeks

Here is the one I made for my Mom-mom

Here is the one I'm working on for my sister. The fabrics are from a old pair of jeans and an old corduroy skirt. I need to use my mom's heavy duty machine to finish it off.

This is one I'm working on for a friend. Its going to be a draw-string top bag.

This is a dressage saddle pad I am making for my sister who rides horses. I also need my mom's machine to finish it off. The white lines are where I'm going to be running my quilting seams.

I also make Ren Faire costumes for myself. Sorry about the picture quality. I was back-lit.

You're very talented! I have trouble just sewing a button back on. Fortunately, I have a large stash of safety pins.

I've made a few Renn-Faire costumes, including a kilt for my husband. I've also made a few handbags, but not quilted, I make regular quilts, though. I like your handbags! ...especially the 'recycled' handbag because that is the epitome of early quilting: Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.
