Please excuse my crazy messy table! The craft fair is next weekend soooo, yeah. That’s my excuse lol. Anyways, this is my new best friend! She’s a Pfaff Ambition 1.0 and she’s amazing. I was trying to come up with a sweet German name for her since Pfaff is a German company, but I can’t decide! I had so many great suggestions on facebook and now I really can’t decide! What do you think?

I’ve also been working on my first handbag design that I’m aiming to debut next weekend. I’m calling it the Divide and Conquer. Epic, I know lol. There’s a really cool center zipper pocket which divides the bag into a total of 3 inside sections. It took me a little while to figure out how to do that, but I’m really happy with how it turned out. I have a few small tweaks to make to the shape and then it should be good to go! Here’s a little sneak peek of the demo I made and the fabrics I bought for craft fair production!

I will definitely be adding these bags to the shop in the near future! Very exciting :)

    I know this post is from like a month ago but I have to say I am seriously JEALOUS right now. That machine is amazing!! All the fancy buttons and stitches, gah I’m so jealous right now. Hope you’re enjoying it and you were able to come up with a name for it! :) I don’t blame you, I don’t think I even know how to pronounce pfaff.

    That is one SERIOUSLY fancy machine!! I would be a little intimidated by all those options, TBH!! ^___^ I’m looking forward to hearing how you go with it :)

    Also, what do you mean “messy”?

      Usually I can’t work with so much clutter on my table! And you can’t see the floor in this shot, but trust me when I say it looks like a craft bomb went off haha!

        Not impressed, looks pretty organized to me :D
        I have seen the craft bomb many times in my own house : >

    Cool new machine!! I feel a bit crazy because I’m lusting after a new machine myself, but my old Singer seems to work fine, so I can’t QUITE justify it! I’d love to learn more about your machine, I’m always interested in what else is on the market!

      I was sold on the Pfaff because it had all the same features as a comparable Janome or Bernina but for less money, AND it has a built in walking foot. Pfaffs are the only machines with this technology and it’s aaammmmaaazzzinnng!! lol The Bernina walking foot is like an extra $100 accessory sooo yeah. BUILT IN WALKING FOOT lol. Love it!

    It’s so nice to see one of my sewing machine’s parents!! I have a pfaff, and like you, find it un-obvious to name….

    I’d say Hildegard or Waltraud but I’m not sure how difficult the pronunciation would be for you…
