In September 2020 Crafty Time with Jessie we crafted with a lot of yarn. Usually I get some other crafts in there, but I do love yarn!

September 2020 Crafty Time with Jessie At Home - Here we go again - Social

Of course, all the school kiddos and teachers are back to school by now; at least school as it is for now. This time of year always makes me feel the need to be cozy. Maybe that’s why I’ve been creating wall hangings and rugs and such with yarn. I like being cozy. I would love to be in a cabin by a fireplace with some tea or hot cocoa or coffee and my yarn. It would be nice if Doug was there too. 🙂

You can find general info, links to all the weeks as we progress, and the current week’s videos HERE.

Embroidered Messenger Bag Tutorial – A great use for your finished embroidery

| Accessory, Bag, Craft Tutorial, Crafts, Needle Arts, Sewing, Sewing Pattern

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

This embroidered messenger bag was inspired by the embroidered turtle I made last year from a Global Artisan kit. I knew I needed to make it into something for Vada, because she’s my turtle-loving child. Vada’s in middle school this year, and is getting more social. I thought of making a petite messenger bag for her because it’s a great way to show off the fun little turtle, and she’s not into purses. She loves it, and I hope you do too!
