I have been putting a few miles on my new sewing machine.  I made eight of these  tote bags for a friend.  She filled them with monogrammed towels, candles, lotions, and other goodies for her girlfriends. 

I love the color combination.  It reminds me of a warm Cabernet and some chocolate.  (At the wine tasting earlier this year, I learned that chocolate pairs well with port wine.)

The bag is completely reversible, constructed of gorgeous home decorator fabric, and fits over your shoulder.

I think they would make the perfect Valentine’s bag for yourself or a friend.  Wine and chocolate – without the calories!  (See the complete listing on my Etsy shop here.)

I recently discovered an amazing eco-artist and her shop and blog:  Waterstone  She is currently featuring studio spaces weekly on her blog.  You will be inspired by everything you see there!  I am excited that I will be sharing my space on her blog in a couple weeks and will celebrate with a giveaway here.  Stay tuned for details!
