Some things I've been working on



I've been working on some gifts.
Lots of them.

These 2 are for the teacher and the bus driver :)

I think they turned out great! My daughter helped me choose parts as we went along. It was kind of liberating to not have a plan in advance. Just choose based on : O.k, we need a bus-now what do we have that goes with that?...now what do we have that goes with that one? Which zipper do we have that will tie it all together? A button, ribbon and so forth-they just sort of evolved.
With my etsy pieces, I'm usually too scared to "make a mistake" -and choose most everything before I start. So, I must say this made me look at things differently. And I usually like things I make, better that way-Note to self: do this more often!


I made this one today for the shop. It's based on the shape of the business card wallets, and not too much bigger . But I like to think of it as a mini clutch or pocketbook.
