I just finished up an order for three bags that I think turned out quite well. I was excited to use some of my new Amy Butler fabric, and on one of them I used oilcloth instead of the vinyl, and I think it's a really cute bag. I had thought I was going to open an Etsy shop, but I've been too daunted by the task of making 10 or so bags at one time. So no shop so far. We'll see. But if anyone is interested in the Amy Butler fabric I have one more bag just like it. Let me know.
I also used some of the same fabric from one of the purses to recover the chairs at my kitchen table. I really like the way they turned out. I put clear plastic over the fabric to make for easy cleaning. For me and my messy children this is the best option. I hesitated doing this for a long time because I thought it would look tacky, but I don't think it looks bad at all, and I'd rather have plastic than dirty fabric anyday.
*unrelated to anything in this post* I can't make the spell check work on my blogger, does anyone know what went wrong? Did I turn off something by accident? Anyway if my spelling is off that's why, help!
