Sew Tote-ally Busy!!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend. I am say the least. I have been busy busy as usual. I feel like I've had so many projects going on, but I don't have a ton to show for it. Does this ever happen to anybody else? I swear I have sewn way more items than I have...hmmmm? I have made some totes. Wanna see?!

Sorry about the crummy pic. I am no photographer, nor do I have the patience to load each picture separately. I do like how these came out though. They were easy to make too. The link to the tutorial is in a previous post :0)

I have also made a few wallets. I FINALLY got that pattern down pat. I have the hardest time following directions to a tee. It's a real problem because if I would life would be so much easier.
I was reading my Astrological sign info the other day and it was pretty much dead on. It states that I don not like to follow the rules....hahahaha!! Hence not following directions completely. Anyone else find their signs, horoscopes, etc interesting. HERE is the link to mine, I'm a Sagittarius. As a matter of fact my 30th B-day is creeping up on me....I'm not to happy about that :0(

Oh yea, here are some wallets I've been busy making.

I also decided to try Pink Penguin's Fabric Basket Tutorial today. I have some left over skater print fabric, and will be making it for my Step Mother who loves anything ice skater themed. I took a pic before I added the handles ( which I have now done). I still need to add lining, but ran out of the polka dot. I guess I'll be taking a Sunday trip to the fabric store....which is OK with me.
This Tutorial is easy, and the basket is fairly small. I think it would be good for a place for makeup you keep in your bathroom. At least that is my suggestion to my Step mom. I'll be making more of these for sure!

I finally listed some items in my Etsy shop. I have also been on the hunt for a new E-commerce type site. One that isn't expensive. I have one through Homestead, but I dunno...Not too happy with it. Although it is only $4.95 a month. But, you cannot sell items unless you upgrade..? What's the point? I've seen a few places like Big Cartel, and Zen Cart. With Zen Cart you have to host through someone else....which I do not like. I bought my domain name so I can transfer that with me until I find a site I am happy with. Hopefully soon please as I started with, Vista Print, then Freewebs, now Homestead.....I just can't make up my mind. Can you tell? If anyone out there has any suggestions I'd love to hear them. Please!!!!

I'll leave you with a picture of my Fia :0) My hubby took her pic and then she told me that she was a monkey. Who knew monkeys put their hands on their ears. I thought of hear no evil when she said that. Can you spot her chocolate cake crumbs on her seat? She is one messy little thing. But, she makes me smile anyway!
