I was excited to create this heart applique hobo bag. The heart is a big, whimsical heart made of red and white swiss dot fabric. The bag is a navy blue sweatshirt fleece, with long ties to make the strap a shoulder strap or cross-body. All the details are here on my Etsy listing. This would be a perfect gift for the teen in your life – or for the young at “heart!”

I also finished up a batch of upcycled coffee sack wine totes. I work with the coffee sacks in limited batches. I had prepared a good number of them in the fall to donate to a fundraiser. I finally took some time to finish them up.  There are six available. One has a longer strap. All the straps are leather belts and all the bags are lined with sweatshirt fleece. I am happy that I can use some of my cutting room scraps to make new things.

 I’m excited about some other new totes on the horizon.
