New Bags and some Knitting

Hi all...I have been doing some sewing and a little knitting. Here are some pictures of my FO and WIP's.

Mini Pleated Beauty Bag. I modified the dimensions on Amy Karol's Pleated Beauty Handbag from the Bend the Rules Sewing book. The one in the book was so cute but I think that it was way to big. This bag is so cute I almost don't want to sell it at the shop. :) I guess I can always make another one. The Sweater in the picture is of my Wicked Sweater using Dream in Color Classy in "Deep Sea Flower" Hopefully I finish it before the DIC KAL is over. Wish me luck.Here is the "Charming Handbag" from the same book. I kind of winged the pattern on this one. It's not the same dimensions but it's basically the same structure as the original. This will be in the shop soon too.

I also started knitting again...when I get tired of sitting at the sewing machine. I cast on for 2 pairs of footies using the scrap yarn that my sister sent me. The first one is knit using size a 3 circular needle and Yarn Pirate Sock yarn in "Rosie" and the second one is knit using a 1.5 circular needle and Yarn Pirate Sock yarn in the "Isobel" colorway. I love how the second one is stripping up...I can't wait to finish these. And I added some more lovely yarn to my stash. dkKnits Technicolor Dream Toes in "Ding Dong Cart Dayz" I love these colors :)

That's all for now I will update again soon. I have a couple more bags that I am going to be working on and some more yarn and roving coming in the mail. Thank you etsy buyers for helping support my habit :)

Thanks for reading & Happy Crafting!

Those bags are absolutely stunning! Be sure to "advertise" them with pics that show how multi-functional they can be; They'd be just as appealing for a non-crafty function, as well! ;)
You have a great talent here! I never could wrap my brain around sewing patterns; my machine is primarily used for quilting (which I've neglected since Lambyknits brought me over to the darkside which is the addiction of sock knitting!) ;) i hope to get back into quilting again in a few months to get geared up for fall decor. Speaking of which, I can't wait to see what neat and fun products you churn out for the holidays!
