Project

Olive Laptop Tote w/ Beaded Zipper Pull

What are you most proud of? I'm going to make box construction laptop totes until the cows come home. I just like to make them. I work in the studio a couple of days, then a couple of days I work on the wall repairs in the stairwell of our old Victorian. Other days, I do research on house histories/genealogy for others who have old houses like us. But, everyday I make sure I have a job to do and can see progress. My studio: In the winter months while waiting for the temperature to rise in the studio I sweep the floor from the previous day's monster sewing mess. I put everything away. Then I spend the rest of the day making it a mess again. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a mess in your sewing room. Post your progress on Crafsty! I love looking at your work, and sharing ideas.
