Finish Friday…..

well that week just zipped by…either time is just flying or I am sleeping to much ?? Wonder which it is ???

Before I show you my “finish” for the week I want to bring your attention to a few small changes on my blog…

  • On the left side of my blog I will be posting any giveaways I come across. Someone has to win them…if not me then you !
  • On the top right side you can now follow me via email. That means any posts I make will be delivered right into your mailbox…no missing my chatter !

That’s it…on to what I made this week.

Actually I finished this purse last week but I couldn’t post it since it was a gift for my sister for her birthday and I had to wait till she got it….package has been received…now I can show you.

Some of you may know that I make these Messenger bags with changeable flaps…my sister wanted a black one…this is what I sent her…..


You can't tell from the picture ( black is hard to photograph) but the bag is black suede.

…I have to have light insides in my bags…otherwise I can’t find anything and lots of pockets!

No purse would be complete without a little crown charm…”every queen needs a crown”!

Here's the same bag with a fun cat linen print…..

Since Halloween is coming up soon…a Halloween flap…

….I added little beads to the edge…Halloween w beads

….and this flap was fabric I bought in Holland this year…it reminded me or the “Peace” generation .

Bag w flowers

One purse …4 different looks.

I still have to make more flaps…something for Christmas, something red, something ???…Oh I am sure she’ll tell me !

That’s it for this week…I am working on another purse ( an order) …you’ll have to wait till next week to see it ( if I ever finish it ! )

Have a nice weekend…I almost forgot …tomorrow is a new month which means the next Sewingroom SewAlong project will be posted…Hope to see ya tomorrow !



P.S. Don’t forget to send me pictures of your needle case ….I'll be posting them Sunday. If you haven't made one…stop reading this post and get sewing !


  1. They look great. For someone who sleeps too much you sure get a lot done. LOLL They are all so pretty I'd have a job choosing but if push came to shove I think I'd chose the kitty one. I love cats. Thanks for the links to the giveaways and I'm now signed up to receive your newsletter. Don't want to miss anything. LOL

  2. Hallo Liz,

    die Taschen sehen klasse aus...sie gefallen mir sehr. Die Stoffe wunderbar gewählt.

    LG Klaudia

  3. Liebe Liz
    ehe ich endlich das Needlecase nähe, muß ich doch fragen, ob du eine Tasche mit vier Klappen genäht hast, oder vier Taschen?
    Toll. Ich glaube, du hast verschiedene Klappen gemacht.

    Und ja, ich muß noch nähen für dein Challenge...morgen....ganz bestimmt.

    Schlaf schön

    liebe Grüße

  4. Liebe Liz, Du warst wieder sooo fleißig und kreativ.
    Deine Schwester wird sich bestimmt freuen.
    Jenes...von Dir empfohlenes Tasachenbuch werde ich natürlich ordern. Ich bin schon ganz gespannt auf den Inhalt.
    Ich wünsch Dir ein schönes Wochenende.
    Liebe Grüße von Sabine

  5. Your messenger bags are fantastic. Who wouldn't love to have the Halloween one as their bag for trick or treating???

    Thanks for sharing and your sister got an awesome gift.


  6. Eine schöner als die andere!!!!
