Here we are at the West End for Handmade Holiday. I'm happy with the turnout. I Enjoyed speaking with my return customers, and the customers that wished they would have gotten one of my bags at my previous sales, and had to come back to find me this year. One more sale to go, and a few more bags to make for it.

Just a week left for production. I am not getting half as many "special features" made, as I thought I could. But I am still going to pull off a few cool items. A dear friend of mine stumbled across these amazing old moneybags that I am converting into my own versions of a "money bag".

This was a happy experiment. I've been lugging around this scrap piece of army blanket, from an upholstery project from years ago. Finally it has found a home. I'm going to have a hard time parting with this beauty.
Here we go again with the Holly Hobby Bags.
This is made from some wool tweed that I found in New york.
I will also have a few black and white tweed bags available.
I'm starting to get a little board of this design, but it still seems to be a popular one. This bag has got to be the lightest bag I have ever made. I found this retro upholstery material in a secret hiding spot, really great bag making material. It may show up a few times in the future.
