Custom Bag For Laura

Hi Laura,

Here are a few pics of your bag in progress. I am just waiting for my order of interfacing to arrive and I can start assembling the bag! Your fabric choices look awesome together, very good choices.

 Back Panel
(Front Panel looks the same but will have the pocket sewn onto it)

Front panel with pocket laid on it

 Straps for the handles

 Pieces laid out, the green is to be the lining

These are the little straps for the side ties and button loop

I do hope you enjoyed the little peek into the parts of the bag. I will try to remember as I am assembling it, to snap some pictures to add to this blog post. Thank you for the custom order, I am totally loving these two fabrics together!

Knit pants for a little girl

I tried my hand at making a pair of knit pants... well let me tell you... sewing on knit fabric is HARD!!... I need to scour the net and find some info and tips for sewing with knits LOL

I do like how the cuffs on the legs turned out... I think I know how I did that LOL

I might try making these in my size...


Banners I have made

Hello readers...
I have been offering to make banners for sellers using the new shop site
I have been offering these banners for free, so therefor I do not tweak the banner... if they dislike it, I am ok with that, however if they like it but want some changes, I would have to charge a small fee for that, because at that time it becomes a bit more customized and from past experience, customizing to a customer's specifications can be very time consuming. IF the customer wants the banner in a psd (layered) file, then yes there would be a small fee for that as well.
I also offer to resize existing banners if that is what someone needs, free of charge of course.

So, without further ado, here are some banners I have made for sellers (size is 1040 x 200)
(if you wish to have me make a banner you can contact me at

DIY Photo Box

Hello everyone, are you tired of trying to take photos of your product and having sun spots, bad lighting, or off color due to artificial lighting? This helps me take better pictures, maybe it will help you too! Make a photo box using everyday items, without breaking the bank! These instructions are for making your own photo box. The size of the box will be determined by the size of the cardboard box you start with.

Items you will need
Cardboard box (with flaps if possible)
Tape (duct or masking)
xacto knife or other sharp cutting tool
white tissue paper
white poster board
Glue (optional)

Tape the flaps so that it extends the height of the box.
Cut windows into three sides of the box, leaving the bottom and one side uncut. Cut up to about 2 inches from the edges.
The uncut side now becomes the bottom of the box, and the bottom now becomes the back of the box.  cut poster board to fit inside the box so it covers the back and bottom. Tape or glue down the poster board, do not fold it to fit into the corner, allow it to bend so it had a slight curve.
Cut the white tissue paper so it covers the window, tape into place using the duct or masking tape.

Optional... you can cover the outside of the box with paper or fabric, if you wish to have it not look so "rough".
The inside of the box can be painted white before applying the white poster board, but it is not necessary.

I wrote this tutorial after I had made my photo box, so I was unable to show the step by step photos. I am including some snapshots which I hope will help visualize the steps above. If you have any questions, you can leave a comment here, and I will answer to the best of my ability.

Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and your photo box.


Please do not copy this tutorial, a link back to this tutorial would be greatly appreciated.

All photos have not been edited except for size. There has been no color changing, or "clean up". This is exactly how it looks coming out of the camera. (sorry about the messy room heh)
