I made myself something...


my new tote bag, originally uploaded by laurensmashtoys.

I have been a crazy sweatshop lately. I really seem to be in a pretty good groove. My crazy Friday night last night involved me, the Alkaline Trio, and my sewing machine. It was seriously party time.

I made this bag for me the other day, I love being able to just whip up stuff when I need it. I really love this fabric, it is definitely my favorite. I need to get some more soon. It totally makes me want to make more stuff out of it. I also had some tree fabric and last night I made another bag out of it, a pouch to match it, a pouch out of super cute apple fabric, 2 dogs and a mini lion. The mini lion came out really great and I love it. I will put pictures up later. Right now all I want to do is make stuff. It makes me feel good. I know I keep saying that but whatever.

Right now I am looking forward to seeing Juno finally today, and next weekend I am going to make the haul out to Heidi Kenney's(my paper crane) show in Gettysburg. I am super stoked about this. I love being so close to stuff that I can just drive places whenever I want to. It is exciting.

The bag is great! And you're right - you totally have to get more of that fabric. It is just about the coolest fabric I have ever seen. Could you send me your new address? I have something to send you:)

Love the tote! Did you see my fancy purse I made?

Whaaa! I seemed to have misplaced my wood grain fabric :/ Oh well Hart's is having a super bowl sale tomorrow, wish you were here to brave it with me :x

So jealous that you get to go to the Forest Party, the stuff that the 3 of them have been making looks f'ing rad. Take pics pls!
