Always Be Making

Love this "Make" print I found hanging on the wall at The Study.

I've barely started this little blog, and my wishlist of projects is growing by the second. My brain is spinning with so many new ideas, I hardly know where to start. What is it about the idea of "new beginnings" that is so addicting? I love starting projects—I just need to get better at finishing them!

Today I worked on some initial sketches for a bag design, and started sewing up prototypes. I've made a few tote bags in my day, so I want to try and make this one a little more functional and unique than a typical tote. The first proto was a bust, but it should come together soon. I'm pushing myself to try some new shapes, and figuring out how to sew them can be a challenge...but that is half the fun!

I also got some canvas swatches in the mail today which look amazing and should make a beautiful bag. All the pieces of this project are starting to come together. I have some awesome heat pressed vinyl designs that will go on the front of the bags, and maybe a few other little surprises tucked inside too.
