Handmade Handbag Obsession

I recently went through a bag making obsession that lasted about 18 months. I read bagmaking posts on Facebook groups, took related Craftsy classes and joined the Bag of the Month Club and made bags along with the group and a local friend. That obsession has passed but I thought I would post some of my bags while I still have some of the photos.

 

 

Currently I am finishing up the BurdaStyle Certified Sewing  Teacher Course.    So far the assignments have not been so "photographically" interesting, but I have some ideas for the next assignment that hopefully will be worth posting.

My current favorite. The passage is a quote from Psalms. "Clean hands and a pure heart." The mother in me resonates with that simple philosophy.

I have done many crafts over the years. The very first, when I was a wee girl was sewing and that obsession has returned with gusto. I tend to dive into the deep water and work in one area intensively for months. My most current obsession is quilting.
