Apparently I can make bags too!

Recently, I decided I wanted a bag I could sling across my chest and be "hands free". Something I could just put a check book, phone, keys and a lipstick in when I need to run to Target or the grocery store. So I hit the internet for a free pattern. Internet did not disappoint. I found this really cute, super easy pattern that I could modify for a smaller bag for Kalie.
Amy wanted a bag too. I had some notion a million years ago that I would make my own diaper bag for Kalie and bought a pattern but never used it...until now.
I did find a limit to my craftiness though. Don't ask me to make you an oven mitt. It was a sad experience. I will post pictures later.

One Happy Customer

Well, I sold my first apron last week! I am thrilled even though there was not some astronomical bidding war. Apron went to one person who got a steal of a deal at $10. I was amazed at her fast many times have I waited months for some people to leave those 80-some characters? Buyer said: "Adorable apron. We rec'd so many compliments at my 5 yr olds cooking b'day party".

Hooray! One happy customer and one happy seller! My heart is singing!

I have decided to start listing aprons on It's a place to buy and sell all things handmade! Hello. I think they created this site for me (humble, aren't I). You can find me at GerberaDaisyCrazy (another place I'm going to change the banner a million times until I'm happy) or go here: It's cheaper to list than eBay and way more fun, I think! Let me know what you think of my new site (spread the word too) and also let me know what would be a good price for Aprons. How else can I jazz it up and make it appealing and sell-able.
