Feelin' hot hot hot

According to the Weather Network's website, it's 34 degrees, feels like 49 with the humidity! Yikes! So what have I been doing? Sewing.

I'm always amazed when sewing a purse at how well it comes out. I'm not an expert at fabric selection, so while I'm cutting the fabric and pinning the pieces and sewing the seams I'm constantly thinking that I'm not going to like it. But when I'm finished, something magic happens and it ends up looking much better than I ever imagined.

Here's today's creation:



And yet more pictures:







This was my first attempt at magnetic snaps. I love the extra finishing touch.

Back to making coolies now for the OGA website.
