Hello everyone!  My name is Tori, and I’m excited to be a Guest Blogger here at Britex Fabrics!  I am from a small town in North Central Florida called Gainesville, home of the University of Florida (Go Gators!). Although I don’t live there anymore it’s always fun going back home to visit the Butterfly Museum, Art Festivals, Plays and Shows, and just enjoying fun times with my family.

I am currently living in Jacksonville, which is in the northern part of the state.

What I love about my home state is the close proximity to beaches, tasty seafood, weather (minus the brutal heat in the thick of summer), the relaxing vibe, and traveling to the small surrounding cities which are packed full of great American history.

When I’m not outdoors exploring, you can find me in my home studio brainstorming, creating, and sewing away, building my handbag company One Eleven Studio.  I love making bags…being able to walk around using something that I’ve made is such a thrill for me!  From casual to fancy the creative possibilities are endless, and let’s face it, one can never have too many bags right?

 

Speaking of handbags, I will be sharing a couple of bag tutorials just in time for your summer travels, trips to the farmer’s market, or for those times when you’re just perusing your own city.  I hope you find the tutorials fun and useful and hope that you share the bags you’ve made with us!
