Beautiful Bags!

I've been sewing a LOT lately, and sorry that I haven't been able to blog about most of it. It's primarily due to lack of time, and not taking great pictures of my work, but these bags deserved a place in Junebug history :)

What's the story? I started working with a couple of local stores that were interested in carrying some of my products. One of the stores is an eco-friendly boutique, and special ordered some Go Anywhere bags (of noodle-head fame) in fabulous organic fabrics. These are my two favorite:

The front bag is made with daisy janie fabric, and the back orange bag is in a new picnic pals print. Both fabrics available right now from Honey Be Good.

Treating myself

One thing that is nice about being a grownup is that I can buy myself presents. Whenever I want to. (Another nice thing about being a grownup is being able to eat candy whenever I want to. And driving. But I digress.)

So I did. It started with a little facebook contest on Form&Fabric's facebook page. I ended up winning a fat eighth bundle of shot cottons (which are awesome), and I thought I'd check out their online store to see if I could add to that shipment for myself :). I hadn't shopped there in a year or so, and I remembered they had some good japanese fabrics.

What I found this time around was aaaahhhmazing. F&F has an incredible selection of great fabrics on super sale - and their sale section is divided into %off categories. There is a 60% off category, people! And the fabrics in it are GOOD. So go check them out. I got some great "just because" fabrics on some serious discount. And everyday, every order $2.99 domestic shipping. Maybe my new favorite online fabric store has been discovered...

From left to right, my fabric finds: Some are as low as $3.60 a YARD, amazing!
