Holiday Season is here....DIY gifts are the thing.

It's November 8th already. The weather in NYC has been abnormally windy and chilly. I have been quite busy teaching sewing classes. DIY craftsters are everywhere! Why not make something and give it?
At 3rdward I started teaching the pant class for 102 and for 101 I am teaching the Charlie Bag. I made a few tweeks to it so maybe I should call it the Marley Bag, Snarley Bag,  Carley Bag??? It's basically a double sided bag great for quick trips to the groceries or as a purse. I have been using mine as a purse.  I will be selling these on etsy so keep an eye out. Custom orders are being accepted.

 Check out for thousands of handmade items. For those of you who do not know about this website designers upload photos of products they sell. All handmade and everything imaginable. You can also request items. This website not only caters to the US but thruout the world!
