Scrappy Saturday

As I posted earlier in the week - I've been a Slacker!  And for today, I still am.  Sorry.....  I simply have not been in the mood to be quilting.  I've putzed around in the sewing room this week, but have not done anything of substance to speak about.  I tried doing one of those little snap bags - the ones made with an old metal tape measure.  Got some ideas on how I want to do them.  I started on the bag for a friend.  Smart Handbag is a bag you make that has a removable cover - so you can change your cover to match your mood, seasons, whatever......  I'm making my friend's in a black leatherette and have embroidered a cover with a design that she's chosen - pictures later!  Whenever I make a handbag, tote, etc... I add tons of inside pockets and usually an outside pocket to throw my keys in - I'm always losing my keys on the bottom of my bag!  I've looked at making one of those handbag organizers - which I think is really a great idea for anyone who changes their bags frequently - but with as many pockets as I add to my bags, I probably don't need one.  But... I will probably make an organizer eventually :-)
Busy weekend ahead for me.  so guess I'd better get moving.  Will help my grandson celebrate his 8th b-day today!  I can't believe how fast the time has gone - grandkids are the best!

Hope all is having more creative times than me!

looking forward to seeing the finished bag. Sounds like a great idea... being able to change the outside look.
