love to be somewhere else?

know what you mean man. sometimes it feels sooo right like this.

but hey - much more important than your face in the sun and your feet in the sand is to have the right stuff with you aaaand the right bags to put your beloved things in. a big and a small one for example...how else should we carry towel and sun lotion??? but where to find the perfect couple?


no idea? come on! it's so easy doing things we really love, right? ha, surprise...for me it's sewing bags. okay, beside that i also love sewing clothes made of jersey, but back to the bags...uhhhhyeah...i love sewing bags. lunchbags, backpacks, washbags, shopper - everything from tiny purses to large weekenders made of cork, leather, canvas...and did you know: i'm also doing tutorials. so if you think you need a new one like those, well - just grab some needles, fabrics you like and start the engine. 'cause:

what you sew is what you get

need an example? take this:

The Black Line - Copper & Cork - Washbag

all you need is love...additional to that - fancy fabrics, matching or contrasting yarn, different sewing stuff and of course your machine might be useful...and don't forget to add some passion. how much love and separate stuff you need to finish this incredible washbag, you'll find in the ebook instruction. so don't think twice and pleaaaase don't hesitate to press this button...äh right...this button:

The Black Line - Copper & Cork - Shopper
