The Everyday Shopper - Complete!

February's bag is done and lookin pretty :)

Another big honkin bag! Much MUCH easier than the Cosmo. No curves, pleats, crazy handles that you put on backwards. Just straight seams and a motherload of interfacing :)
Love love love this IKEA canvas and I think the orange with lace works.
Left the lace on and added buttons, of course.

This is the first of the giveaways! If you feel like you could give this bag a good home leave me a comment and I'll randomly draw a winner on Friday. Make sure to add your email address so I can contact you.

Comments, comments, comments.... how about your favorite tv series, new or old. I have been spending lots of time with Netflix and the X-Files, the Mulder/Scully tension is starting to really heat up :)

New Website!

Yes! I finally had something done with my domain I snagged years ago :) The genius that is Erin & Tim Cooper over at Cooper Multimedia have worked their magic and now I have this gorgeously simple website:
So perfect! I can't recommend them enough :)

A Makeover

As you can see I am in the process of a full on style makeover :)
The lovely Erin and Tim Cooper are giving my Fried Okra website a fresh faced new look, super excited for the big reveal!  

I have also set up a Facebook fan page, 'Like' me!
I give you my promise to not be obnoxious with status updates, pinky swear.

I also have an Etsy shop update in the works! Let me know if there is something you would like to see listed :)

February's Bag - The Everyday Shopper

I've perked up a little from my last sad sack post :)
I am taking a tiny little break from The Sock Monkey Sweatshop to indulge my fabric in a little Me time.

I'm going to be completely honest and confess I had this February bag done the second week in January. Naughty! I was on a roll and this one looked so easy. It was, compared to the Cosmo for sure.
I am going to string you all along for a bit though and just post my fabric selections.

- The blue is a heavy canvas weight from IKEA and is for the outside main body.
- The orange with awesome orange lace is a thrift store find and will be the outside pocket and inside lining.
- The white and orange print is also from IKEA and was originally a duvet cover, it will be the inside pocket.

I know you're wondering, I kept the lace on :)
