I have decided to spend the winter making purses and bags, and my plan is to have my own little sale in conjunction with another garage sale in the spring. I am having fun matching fabrics and making my own patterns. So far my bags are pretty simple, but I am sure that as I get more comfortable with sewing them, I will add more embellishments.
