Beachy MsKRS

Hey Hey Hey Folks!
I'm trying to keep up with my sewing and my blog so here goes another ;).....I was trying to come up with something to sew today....I thought about the Style Shopper in Amy Butler's book but I didnt want to part with that much material and interfacing (her bag patterns call for a lot of supplies)....then I thought about teaching myself a new technique out of my faves new book (Lisa Lam) but I got sidetracked looking at Old Navy's site.....While surfing the site (no pun intended lol) , I saw a few totebags with super cool, raw edges, grommets, and applique that I thought was the cutest thing...It was on sale for $10.00 and I would have gladly given them those dollars for any one of the totes they offer....but since I have been blessed to sew, I decided to make my own version of it....It was fun for me too because I got to use some of the supplies that I seldom use in my sewing such as fabric spray and glitter, I didnt have any grommets...that would have been a new skill to add to my resume as well because I have never installed grommets before....tonight I am going to tie-dye some more letters for another similar tote....I am so glad I sew...I can always have something tailored to ME....

The applique is glittered and the front is spritzed with fabric spray!...I had fun with this bag I tell you what! (in my Hank Hill voice)...:D

The back....


Glitter and fabric spray by Tulip...Good finds and friggin' fun to use!... by the end, I had glittery fingers and overspray everywhere! LOL!


  1. Anything involving glitter gets the thumbs up from me! Yuo'll be finding it around the house for weeks to come, no doubt!

  2. I love using that stuff...I have so many ideas....I have been doing some tie-dye lately....have a buncha fabric dye packs left and one more tie-dye fingers just barely turned back the normal color...LOL....ttys!
