The Bag and the Coasters- No More Creative Block!

So I have been away for a while. I had a foot injury and then total creative block! I finally was able to work through it and got back into project mode. First, I had this bag I wanted to make. It was originally supposed to be my new spring bag, instead it became a tote. I haven't done any studying on bag construction so I wasn't really sure how the different fabrics would work. I ended up using fusing that was just a little too stiff and Voila: Tote. Oh well, still very cute and my laptop fits in it if I ever need to carry it around. Guess I will have to go by a spring bag and learn a bit more about construction for the fall.

I also finished these great coasters today. I made them from wine corks! I'm very excited about these because they are my mother's Mother's Day present. (All the wine corks came from her collection, she doesn't know I have them. She gave them to sister-in-law.) I think these are a perfect gift, so I am sure they will show up elsewhere when I need a great present.

So now it is on to other gifts... I have two nephews and a niece who are all getting baptized in the next three weeks, so lots of gift making. I'm excited about getting back to crafting!
