Bag is finished

Well, it took me longer than I thought, mainly because I wanted this one to be sell-able. I updated the straps, materials, and hardware, as well as reinforced all of the seams on the straps. Tomorrow will be picture day for the bag, and hopefully it will be listed by the end of the day as well.

Thanks for sticking with me, and still be followers, even tho I've been away from this blog for so long. I really appreciate it.

Shopping day!

Well, it was for the new bags, and it was so fun. We went to my favorite fabric shop, to look at canvas (and very carefully did not look at any cute fabrics, only canvas!) and came out with some manly(or cute) colors to make manly disc golf bags with. Today is a working on sewing day. The goal is to finish 2 new bags today.

And I bought camo!

Disc Golf bag in progress

My DH loves to frisbee golf, and I have made a few bags for him over the past couple years. He always manages to sell them to his friends, so he recently asked me to make him one for himself. As I started I also began looking for something similar to purchase online, and came up with no handmade options. Here is the latest one, I'm working on perfecting this for my shop. The beads are all his idea, to keep score with. I think the future pockets will be higher with no closure or velcro, its tight enough.

I found a great site to purchase wholesale supplies from, its called They have all kinds of fasteners, straps, everything, in all kinds of sizes and colors. well worth checking out.

I think I'm back.

Have you heard of the ArtFire Pro Deal?

ArtFire is a really great site for buying for selling handmade. They are going to be launching soon, and are offering a great deal on Pro level accounts. Its the lowest I’ve seen them offer, and lower than you can purchase at this time. Best of all, signing up to sell is free with a basic membership, and you can upgrade to Pro easily by signing up for this new low rate.
I love using ArtFire, and I prefer it to etsy for selling my crafty things.
ArtFire is offering a limited number of people the chance to lock in a never-before-seen $5.95/month rate. In order for us to offer you this deal we need at least 20,000 members, including you, to opt-in for the exclusive $5.95 rate. Don’t miss your chance to lock in the best deal in e-commerce. Once this deal is over, it’s not coming back.
To celebrate the beta exit, we are running an exclusive promotion to lock in the best rate ever offered for an ArtFire PRO account. We will be making a group deal offer to everyone who wants an ArtFire PRO account.
If we can get 20,000 people to commit to an ArtFire PRO account, every single person who opts in will lock in a rate of $5.95 per month for as long as they maintain an active subscription with ArtFire. As with everything ArtFire does there are no hidden fees, no long term contracts, and no surprise charges.
We will be publicly announcing this promotion early next week, but we are giving current ArtFire members the opportunity to sign up early. If you have friends or family that might be interested you can let them know they just need to sign up for a basic account to get early access. We are setting a hard cap at 50,000, and if we hit that number of Pros before next Monday, the deal will never be announced outside of the community.
Go check it out, and check out my store too.
