The sale is still on at Zakken and a peek at Manteau St Michel

I have decided to extend the sale on all ready-to-ship items until Friday, January 22.
The promo code is SALE15. Go to Zakken to browse the ready to ship items. You will see the announcement for each sale item in the title.

On the sewing front,  I am working on the manteau St-Michel by Cozy Little World. It is a lovely "caban" pattern.


Keep in mind that the collar and facing are pinned- I was impatient to see the look- so the whole thing is a bit wonky. I love,  love, love the fabric from Mood.
More pictures and info later.
Happy shopping!

Bags and such...

Lots of sewing going on in my studio lately...
First, a fun little leather bag found here
Leather Shoulder Bag- The  Hobo

Right in time for the holidays, a couple of waxed canvas wine totes. Environmentally friendly, they will replace the traditional paper gift bag, to be used again and again. They are available here.

Lastly, a bunch of practical zippered cases, large enough to hold an iPad, or some bike tools, sewing needs, or to use as a clutch for an evening out on the town.

A Bag and a Sierra Bra

I know, this is a strange title, but in the last couple of days, I have made a leather bag and a lace bra...
First, the bag. Beautiful black leather and brown trim... It is available here.

Next, the bra...
I used a free (FREE) pattern from Madalynne found here.
The Sierra  Bra is really easy to make and the design is quite clever. I decided to make two straps instead of a halter strap. I tried the halter strap but, unless you are wearing a halter top, it is going to show. So I made two straps and they feel great.
I used  white galloon lace  and notions from ArteCraft on Etsy. The bralette is very easy to make and
super-comfortable to wear.
I am ordering more galloon lace to make more Sierras in black, pink, gray, and lavender...
To make your own Sierra, go to Madalynne's website and follow the sew-alongs.
Thanks Madalynne :)

Merlot Red Waxed Canvas Tote

Here is the newest tote from the shop , a zippered waxed canvas tote in lovely Merlot red.Merlot Red Zippered Waxed Canvas Tote with Leather Handles- Diaper Bag- Weekender

Many customers have asked for a zippered tote, so here it is. The handles are longer to allow for shoulder wear, and there is no crossbody strap. The wine color is perfect for Fall and Winter. 
I am currently working on a black leather drawstring bag and a minimalist men's wallet. 
More on that later.
