Thank you for custom making this pouch for my new IPhone for me. It is exactly what I was looking for! It arrived quickly and had been in constant use since I received it! Thank you!

Working on a stack of skinny strap shoulder purses. I use French seams to give the bag a sturdy structure and to eliminate raw edges on the inside of the bag. Admittedly making the straps is not a favorite task but I do love this purse style.
I use a method called English paper piecing to make hexagons. Then I hand sew them together, for this cosmetic pouch they are then machine appliquéd onto the denim. I really enjoy doing handwork it's a nice break from being at the machine all day.
It has been about three months since I completed any purses or totes. Today I hope to crank out 8 to 12, got some new fabrics I'm excited to work into new items. Here is a medium and a large tote ready for final assembly.

About

Handmade Purses Totes and Accessories in Designer Quilting Cottons

My shop was created staying home after my child was born. Needing an outlet beyond being a new mom, I sort of dove into my obsessive hobby, sewing. The time off from work allowed me to build Midnight Creations at my own pace.

Etsy is just now one small component of my business, I sell at shows, retail shops and wholesale outlets. I have been so lucky to turn an fun hobby to a full time job.

I enjoy making items that are utilitarian, to be used and enjoyed. My creations range from simple designs to quilt inspired pieced items made from quilting cottons. I love the idea a piece of fabric can be made into different items with many purposes. Fabrics can be combined in endless color, print and textures to make something that becomes useful and enjoyable for the user.

I pride myself in the quality of sewing I have worked hard to achieve. I use modern quilting techniques in my line with attention to detail, items are made to mix and match or use on their own. Combining colors to offer a huge array of choices from traditional to trendy I've been told my item “becomes art for my purse”.

I work with fabric every day, I save and use almost every inch of fabric that comes into my life, at the end of the day I often say “the fabric does all the work”.

All items made by me in my Michigan based home sewing studio, all items shown are ready to ship...today or tomorrow. My items are designed to be used and enjoyed, simple items sewn with great care and attention to detail. I have been obsessively sewing and creating for over 20 years, never mind how many over.

I shared a little about my time here on etsy in the January 5th 2009 article in the Storque "Quit Your Day Job".
