"Eye Candy" from March
The bags you see below are my favorites among those that customers have shared either on our FaceBook business page, our Instagram feed or on our brand new Group page on FaceBook. So thanks to ALL who posted their pictures last month! They were ALL great but the ones below were my favorites!
(For LARGER images: Click on each individual pic)
Agnes Smith's Go-Go Compact
I'm totally into the bright yellow interior on this adorable little bag!
Pat Leask's  Everyday Attache
This color scheme has plenty of drama! It's beautifully photographed too!
Cheryl Klink's Quattro
Cheryl made this bag for her sister who chose coated cotton for the exterior & even though it must've complicated the make, the result is gorgeous!
Julie Hoyt's Everyday Attache
This bag of Julie's has everything I love... organization AND it's purple!
Donna Lamont's Go-Go Compact
Donna said the silky brocade she chose for this exterior was difficult to work with but payed off BIG in the end!
Jeanne Harrington's HipBag Hybrid
Jeanne made this cutie for her soon-to-be daughter-in-law to take on her honeymoon!
Judy Stuart's Go-Go Compact
I love Judy's eclectic mix of fabrics and the yellow mesh pocket on the inside is such a really FUN surprise!
Debbie Hataley's Go-Go Compact
Debbie used the same fabric for her bag as we featured on the cover for this pattern and did an exceptional job doing so! Excellent fussy-cutting too!
Celia Anne Oliver's Bellagio Bag
Celia is definitely proving herself to be the "Queen of the Bellagio"!
And finally, here's Cheryl Garst's Guardian Bag. Cheryl showed some bravery combining these three fabrics but it payed off BIGTIME for her!

is Your Phone getting bogged down with tooo many apps?
Tip: delete all the apps from your phone, or if that’s too scary, move them all to a screen away from your home screen. Bring them back only as you truly need them. After a few weeks, delete the rest and feel the weight lift.
