BlackJack Bag!!!!!

In the spirit of my Vegas fabric I had to keep the name of this bag festive =)

I’m just in love with these plaids, they are so strong and durable! And on top of it I added some extra interfacing to the lining and the outer fabric to enhance it’s strength.

BlackJack is pretty big about 20″ wide by 14″ tall. Since I saw how well the LumberJack and his Lady worked as a school book bag, I thought I’d make another one about that size. Although I’m not in school anymore so I’d personally like this for a weekend or overnight bag. I take lots of mini trips where I don’t need a suitcase because I only need a change of clothes, a toothbrush and somewhere to put it, and this bag would be perfect!

*****Each product is handmade from second hand clothing and fabrics and is completely one of a kind, I couldn’t duplicate any of these bags even if I wanted too! It’s my way of going green and staying in style.

*RED SOLD* 2 LumberJacks at Work!!!

Like I promised I finished 2 LumberJack’s this week!  They are friends =)

These two are the “LumberJack’s at Work” because the inside lining (which is made from a linen curtain) has big trees on it.

I found these two shirts at a thrift store in Vegas and since I’d got so much feedback from the original LumberJack and His Lady bag, when I saw this red plaid shirt I knew I had to snatch it up.

VEGAS TRIP!!! Who wants a LumberJack!!!

I just made it back from a 1 day iron man Vegas trip that resulted in some AMAZING finds at the thrift store! I’m re-naming that place “inspiration city!”

I literally spent 2 HOURS scouring the racks in this place.  I also upset a few of the workers  because while I was sifting through a massive rack of t-shirts the whole bar disconnected and all of the shirts fell onto the floor!  I’m talking a good 10 feet of shirts.  I was so embarrassed and tried to walk away…but it was too large of a mess to escape from, so I admitted my mishap to the worker who was already cleaning it up.  She was NOT happy!

Anyway the place was HUGE and I had the best time ever!  I couldn’t leave thinking I’d passed anything up!  Especially because that was my only day there before I left the next morning.  So many dollars later I left completely satisfied =)

For all of you who enjoyed the red and black LumberJack bags, don’t be sad that you missed out on those ones, because I FOUND another red and black LumberJack work shirt! And some great lining for it.

I already started seam ripping and washing tonight so that I can really get to work tomorrow!

So coming soon: “LumberJack at Work” (in red and green) as well as “BlackJack!!!!”

Get excited!

Pictures of the progress soon to come =)

As always, please enjoy!

PS.  I loved Vegas, mainly because of Savers.  Have you been to Vegas?  What did you think?  How’d it treat you =)
