bags and now, fingerless gloves

I see a couple of readers have been gracious enough to log a comment about an upcoming give away. Thank you bunches!

In my last post I mentioned a bag or two I was working on. Since then I finished the green bag by lining it and now have it featured on etsy. Sometime today I should have a similar bag finished, this one in blues. I just finished embellishing it with some copper accents and have the lining made and pinned in place. A little hand stitching and it’ll be done! Yay!

In the meantime I started making hand warmers aka fingerless gloves aka wrist warmers. Like I didn’t have enough projects already! Well, I’ve made three pair now, the first being a trial pair for myself. I just love them and have worn them everywhere! Here’s just one of a pair I made the other night with some funky copper and green variegated (although the green looks teal in the photo). More justice would have been done had I not been trying to photograph my own hand, but you get the idea. I think I like them better in a solid color.

Anyhow…I didn’t create this blog to be a craft blog, but making things is very much an integral part of my simple, frugal lifestyle. So, I guess you’ll just have to bear with me.
