"theme"-day thursday bags inventory production shop

In the Bag, “Theme”-day Thursdays

I have a feeling that this month’s “Theme”-day Thursdays are going to be a bit off.  So, instead of posting sub-par posts and ideas, I’m going to have the theme day for this month be bags.  Since I’m up to my eyeballs making them.  Oodles of them.  I’m trying to create inventory for the upcoming opening of my shop and between that, end of year stuff with kids, attempting to keep things rolling here at the blog and well, life- there’s not much time for anything else.  Each week I’ll give you and update on where I’m at, and what I’ve been making.  A progress report of sorts.  Hopefully it will serve as one more place to be accountable to keep on making things even when I’m tired of making things. 🙂

One of the things I’m most excited about with these new bags is the lining!  I’ve decided to step outside of my normal “safe” solids and find some fun complimentary prints.  I’m loving this one- it’s from the new Denise Schmidt line at Joann.
These bags still need their finishing touch- gigantic flowers- before they’re totally finished, but 6 bags in one week was a pretty big load for me.  I’m happy so far.  I’d love any input on which ones are your favorites.
Stay tuned for more exciting shop news in the next couple of weeks.
Have a great Thursday- It’s almost FRIDAY!!

    Good Job Amy! Love them all! But, if I had to pick a favorite out of this group it would be the one you showed, with the fun polka dot lining. Going with a contrast lining is a winner! Love it! I am going to be sewing like gang busters this week too.

    Have a great day!

    I love them all too! But I think I like the stripe one best. Would work for a day at the beach, or a baby bag, or just a tote to carry to work.

    6 in one week? You rock. I love them all! But if I had to pick, my favorites are probably the blue squares one and the black and white trellis-type design. But I really love them all!

    Great job Amy. They are all so pretty. My favorites are the teal and white and the black and white. I love the inside fabric too.

    They are so cute but for church I'd choose the black and white. I really like the print inside it adds pizzaz to the bags.

    I don't know how you do it, Amy 🙂 LOVE the print lining. Definitely think that ups the wow factor. That bag is my favorite. I like the black & white bag, too.
