I'm Sew Good!


Hello, Dear Ones!
I wanted to show you what my most tiny delicate talented fingers made.
Please know I'm joking. :)

I'm always pinning sewing projects I'd like to make...ONE DAY. 
You know how that is, don't you?
I started seeing all of these cute purses and starting pinning my tiny socks off.

Guess what? 
That ONE DAY came and I went to town and made this purse.
I made a soft lined purse.
I used left over fabric from a little sewing rocker I recovered a few years ago. 
If you'd like to see that little recover job, you can click HERE.

Looky how talented I am...I made special pockets for my cell, pens and little cheating glasses.


I put a long strap on it so I could sling it over my shoulder.
I was trying to model it a bit for you.
Shoot, I should have worn a color coordinated shirt!


Now as cute as my little soft purse is when I put anything heavy in it, 
like my tiny little water bottle, it wanted to collapse a bit.
Do I care?
No, no Nannette, I don't care a bit and I've even gotten quite a few compliments on it.

Now if  you want to put your most tiny delicate talented fingers to work sewing a little soft purse you can click right HERE it's the Phoebe Bag

Pin It

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Little Green Bag


Lookin' back on the track for a little green bag,
Got to find just the kind or I'm losin' my mind
Out of sight in the night out of sight in the day,
Lookin' back on the track gonna do it my way.
Out of sight in the night out of sight in the day,
Lookin' back on the track gonna do it my way.
Lookin' back
Lookin' for some happiness
But there is only loneliness to find
Jump to the left, turn to the right
Lookin' upstairs, lookin' behind, yeah!
Lookin' for some happiness
But there is only loneliness to find
Jump to the left, turn to the right
Lookin' upstairs, lookin' behind.
Lookin' back on the track for a little green bag,
Got to find just the kind or I'm losin' my mind
Out of sight in the night out of sight in the day,
Lookin' back on the track gonna do it my way.
Lookin' back on the track for a little little green bag,
Got to find just the kind or I'm losin' my mind,
Alright.
Lookin' for some happiness
But there is only loneliness to find
Jump to the left, turn to the right
Lookin' upstairs, lookin' behind.
Pa pa pa pa pa pa ...

  3. So cute!! I like doing little projects once in awhile. Right now, I'm making for my granddaughter a sun dress -- all lined with an attached ruffly petticoat. I could use a simple project as I get bored making ruffles!!!! Have a good week. Sally

  9. Hi Shelia,
    I love your tiny little bag. It's so cute and it's perfect for summer while shopping the thrifts and fleas. A girl could stuff quite a few things in there.

  18. I think it turned out GREAT. I love that it has "pockets" for things. I have some shoulder bags, that I just throw stuff in and heaven forbid I should be able to find anything.

  35. How fun! I love your purse, I've been pinning those, too, Shelia, but I have yet to make one like that. While at my daughters, I saw that she had made two lovely cloth purses and they were much nicer than I could have made. I love yours!
    Hugs, Cindy
