Sabbe Chic

>> Tuesday, September 23, 2008

So I'm leaving for Chicago in the morning! I'm very excited to go to my favorite city and see my favorite man. We'll both become a year older while I am gone.

Last week I discovered that there is a store here locally that sells Amy Butler fabric. And we all know of my love affair with Amy Butler. So I went and I found a new love... Joel Dewberry.

The best words I can use to describe his stuff is yummy. You know when you love a fabric so much you just want to rip it off the spool and speed home to make something out of it (I know that's not just me) Well his stuff definitely had me constantly reminding myself to calm down...I was still in public...don't scare the fabric cutter ladies. So after too long of going around seeing what went with what I decided on this nice Fall pallet.

And I made this.

I've been wanting a big hobo bag for a while now and this one is big. I would take a self portrait, but I'm in my pajamas and southern ladies do not post pictures of themselves in their pajamas on the internet. I should write that in to Emily Post. Oh! one exception, if you made yourself and your child some sort of matching pajama outfits and you need to share with other crafters that would be ok....and maybe Christmas morning, but let's draw the line there.

Lost track, here is a close up of the back.

And drum roll please....I'm a name brand!

I made all kinds of pockets that close with velcro on the inside because if I loose my keys or my lipgloss in my own purse one more time I'm going to go crazy. The tags I ordered from Namemaker. Aren't they fun?! Artist sign their paintings, I sew made up business names into my crafts. If I ever open a shop, which I doubt I ever will because I never want to work on Saturdays, it will be called Sabbe Chic.

Zoe liked this one too. What can I say, the cat has an eye for fashion.

I started to try and make a tutorial out of this one but it got way too confusing. I'll take it a step back and do one for the Kate Bag very soon, promise.

I think it would make an excellent diaper bag! Hmmm, any preggos out there want to learn how to make one? It really wasn't hard, just hard to explain on the internet.

See you next week! I'll be much closer to 30 so be prepared for this blog to become much more wise.

Very stylish! Your crafts always seem to come together so fast. How long did it take you to cut, sew, complete this purse?

awesome bag. i must say, i would never pick out those two fabrics with the intention of putting them together on a project. but once again, you amaze me with your craftiness. it looks great. i am still in the very early stages of crochet and sewing, so maybe one day i can make something as awesome as this bag... or those cute little booties you made for that competition. :)

I love the bag and the fabric. And you are very right about the whole pajama thing. Actually I am blogging in my pj's right now.

I think our pets are way smarter than we realize. I wonder if Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry have pets as in the know as Ms. Zoe? Doubt it! =)

Love it...and love the name! My craft store lady name is "a crazy woman" (using my initials and my general perception of myself)...that is if I could have a craft store and not work Saturdays and get paid for how much time I spend on a project and not have to compete with walmart prices and so on and so on! BTW I have an webpage/farmer's market booth/book/Christian ministry idea that you may like to go in on with me...

It took me around 2.5 hours:) I am determined to make my first bag tutorial this week. Stay tuned. I already have the fabric and I just found out that the project (work project) I'm working on is not actually due until NEXT Friday. Trickster Project Managers! I could have gone to Bunko last week.

I would like to make this bag and I have found some fabric that I want to use. Can you tell me how much I might need then give me directions or my own personal tutorial? :):):)
