Just Beachy

So excited about a new, inexpensive, easy design I came up with last night!  It's a beach bag.  Nothing's more beachy than a bag made of towel!  They are turning out super-cute and they are not terribly time-consuming to make.  I think they will be my bag party special.

Another bag party special--I tried my hand at earrings.  I only got enough stuff to make a couple pairs of them, but I think they're cute.  "Bones and Stones" is what I'll call them, because I used these awesome, light-weight bone beads and some pretty stones.  My mom thinks they are cute.

Seat Of My Pants Land: Preparing For a Bag Party!

I haven't posted anything new to Etsy in several days, but I have been busy, busy, busy making new bags for the bag party coming up this week.  The hostess told me that the guests were "big bag ladies," so I have made a couple larger totes that I'm pretty happy with (one of which I want to keep of course!).  I also revisited a design I thought I'd retire, but it turned out pretty well too, so I think I'll keep it around.
