The handbag handles came in yesterday from Diddee Dits. They look great and the seller was a real pleasure to work with. She kept in touch and shipped super-quickly. Be sure to check out her shop. She's got some absolutely adorable kids' hats (this one's my favorite) and pretty printed bags.

Of course, I dove right in and attached one set of handles to a handbag I'd been crocheting. I think it looks really good. I'll post some pictures up later today.

In other news, I've decided that I'm going to buy handmade for the majority of my Christmas shopping. I'm going to start making my list now!

My hand-bag handles are on their way. I can't wait!
I'm at a little bit of an impasse though with one of my bags.
To line or not to line... that is the question.

A lined crochet bag makes more sense, but I feel like the lining takes away from the flexibility of it. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong.

Who knows.

In other news, I ran across this blog today.
I thought the drawings were lovely.

Speaking of drawings, I need to get cracking on making a flyer for my band's next show.
Flyer? Flier?
I like "flyer" better.

Here is the pillow I made for my cousin's baby!

Also, I'm in the process of putting up a new scarf and bag on Etsy.

The ear-warmers are coming, too... I just have to muster up the energy to take pictures of them!
I just ordered some vintage plastic purse handles from Etsy.
They are EXACTLY what I was looking for.
I can't tell you how excited I am about this.
