Just Call Me the Bag Lady...

Hi, my name is Sandy, and I'm a Bag-a-Holic!! Yes, the bag bug has bitten me and I can't stop making them. Is there a 12 step program for this??? Ha Ha

My newest obsession is making Placemat Purses. Here are a few:

The first one I made ribbon handles, then decided that wouldn't be sturdy enough, so I found some sturdier handles (on clearance at Jo-Ann for 97 cents, so I bought all they had). I plan on re-doing the handles on the sunflower purse.

I've got several more I'm going to make because I might actually sell some of these..... yay! I'll tell you more about that later when/if it happens.

Hey, guess what? This is my 100th post. You know what that means don't ya? Yep, another giveaway to celebrate. I'll try to think up something fun, so stay tuned.


  1. Well, I vote for one of those awesome bags to be given away. These are all so lovely. I think you should sell them.

  2. 12 step programme.....make twelve then start again!!!! love the paisley one!

  3. Your bags are beautiful!!! I saw some very happy, bright placemats in the dollar store the other day, they would be perfect!!! What a gift these would make. What a give-away this would be!!!!

  4. Isn't it lovely when you are really hooked on making something. you certainly seem to be enjoying these. Well done to you, they look gorgeous!
    Love to you Suex

  5. Hi Sandy, Thank you so much for the lovely message youleft on my blog about my hands. Very much appreciated. I love the bags you are making they look very professional you will have no trouble selling them and congratulations on your 100th post.x

  6. I really like the top autumn toned bag in the top photo (as is, please don't change)- Well done

  7. Oh, they're so pretty...I like them all, but my favorite is the first one with the sunflowers. I love the design and the beautiful, warm fall colors...I'm addicted right now too, but with me it's crocheted potholders ;-) could be worse, right?
    Keep up the good work and have a lovely week, Sandy :-)
