shop update preview

I’ve been having a blast this week sewing up some new totes. My mom was recently visiting and requested a tote style bag with kind of short but not too short straps, and a sturdy square bottom so it can sit upright when you set it down. I have also been needing a larger bag for day trips, so once she left I hopped upstairs and got to work. I have so many really nice fabrics – vintage, linen, canvas, wool – in smallish quantities that go unused in my usual line of work, so I focused on using those, almost exclusively. The evolution from the first bag to the last was really fun. There’s nothing like sewing freely, without constraints. Sometimes it takes me a bit to shift out of that mode, as I spend a lot of time filling very defined orders, but once I do I can spend from morning until night up there, without hardly a break. These came loosely from the concept of the 2-tone totes from a while back.

I hope to start adding these to the shop this evening. See you soon!
