Fresh Totes

So, this past weekend brought many good moments and many frustrating moments. My sewing machine started doing unpleasant things...like skipping three inch sections of bobbin stitching, breaking threads left and right (literally...i use a twin needle machine), ruining perfectly fine and good bags just before the finishing stages, making them "unfit to send." In order to deal with the frustration, I had to remove myself from the situation...for, cursing at inanimate objects makes an adult look very silly.
Rather than look silly in the sewing studio, I decided to put myself in front of the camera and work on photographing some of the new bags. It will likely be the weekend before I make it through the editing process, so be patient little birds...they will be in the shop soon. Here's a small sample of what's coming...the newly re-designed tote.

I'll be uploading photos from the shoot to my flickr page all week...so keep an eye out...

p.s. I had my haircut 2 weeks ago...it's pretty short now...perfect for that new Yokoo warmer that's on its way...


  1. Sorry to hear about your sewing issues. I had that happen in the past as well and I just about lost my mind trying to figure out what was going on. Luckily, there was a simple solution to the problem. All I needed to do is replace the needle. It was slightly bent. Also check around your bobbin case for tread residue. That is another culprit of skipped stitches.
    Love the new photos.

  2. Love the haircut. Perfect. Yes, sewing machines can start getting fussy when they are used all the time. Seems to be time for a tune-up!

  3. I'm looking forward to getting one of these when they come out! (hopefully in time for christmas?)

  4. DYING (okay, not literally) to get my hands on the new tote!! It looks fab!
