Morning Sunshine & A Smaller Market Bag

Oh how I love the way the morning sun streams into my studio.

On this particular morning, the sun provided the  perfect light as I work on making a smaller version of my Pleated Market Bag.

After much delay (and a little procrastination), I finally had the chance to use the sage/beige linen fabric that I purchased from one of my fabric shopping adventures a few months ago.

And I have to say I that I love the look of this smaller version, as I think it will make a perfect summer accessory for your summer dresses or with a great pair of shorts.

Now while I do say it's smaller, it's still roomy enough to carry all your stuff..but to give you a better idea of the size of this Linen Market Bag:

The top opening is 101/2"; the bottom length is 12"; it's body height: 12 1/2" and comes with a adjustable strap that goes from 26" - 47" in length.

You can purchase this bag from my HMMills' Shop here...

Patience - Treasury

 Oh boy, I am feeling the love, another item made it into another treasury.

A fellow shop owner has included my Canvas Flower Handbag in a new Treasury...Patience

(That's my bag on the far left in the third row.)

My Canvas Navy Blue with Flower Handbag is pleated and constructed in a heavy navy blue cotton canvas and lined with a pretty cotton print.  The interior has two pockets (a zippered pocket and an slip pocket). The outside is accented with a handmade flower constructed from the same fabric and simple blue button and a nickle rectangle ring on one of the handles. A perfect tote to carry all your essentials.

It happened this week...

Although there was a brave effort in searching fabric stores both online and off as well as fabric warehouses - it happened this week - I  used the last of my favorite dark gray hemp/cotton fabric when a customer purchase the last Hemp/Cotton Messenger Bag in Gray.

I knew it was coming months ago,  my fabric supplier inform me they had discontinued carrying the hemp/cotton in gray earlier in the year.
As the months went by, my bolt of gray hemp dwindled until I was down enough fabric for one messenger bag and one market bag. The market bag sold a few weeks ago and now as I am sewing the last messenger bag - I keep glancing over the sad small pile of fabric scraps. 

The last remains of my favorite gray hemp/cotton fabric.
