What a week! I have this pile of beautiful assorted constellation fabrics so I might as well make a few projects and release them as a collection! New Year, new fabric, new projects. Let's do it! Oh I also got some new hardware for my Open Wide Pouches from Emmaline Bags. Check out the zip ends on these bad boys! No more fabric tabs for this lady, no way!
This was also the first week that I've used cork leather! Or cork fabric. Or just cork? People have all sorts of different things they're calling it but I'm going to roll with cork leather. It sounds the fanciest. And cork leather IS fancy. It's the same stuff you'd expect wine corks to be made out of, or cork boards, but instead of thick, it's thinner, and smoother, and comes in a variety of eye popping colors, or natural! It's fabric-backed for easy sewing and I'm in love. It's the red in the picture above and below.
As for new patterns, I also gave Little Moo's Tainted Love Clutch a whirl! I am so in love! The foldover aspect is really new to me but I keep seeing them everywhere and I have to say I'm so pleased with the results! It gives the clutch something more to hold onto as well as giving you more storage space! Double win! Little Moo's also has interior pockets and card slots for even more Yes, Please!
In the spirit of newness, I also gave Swoon's Dollie Mini Crossbody a whirl! This just might be the tiny purse that I've been chasing forever! If you know me, you'd know how obsessed I am with itty bitty round purses. They're so cute! Unfortunately I also need to carry around everything but the kitchen sink. Dollie is nice because the main area is big enough that I can carry essentials. Then I can fit a few extras in her back slip pocket! And I always have extras because I'm like a human Katamari,
