Good Morning! & Behind the Scenes!

Good Morning! I thought I'd post some pics of the behind the scenes of making my bags and accessories. I think really I just wanted to take a break from the sewing! haha A popular question is "How long does it take you to make a bag?" Well - depending on the size of the bag/accessory, it can take anywhere from an hour to 9 or 10 hours! There are so many steps that go into making a bag. The first being to cut everything out, then ironing and interfacing, then I usually sew as many pieces as I can independently so when its time to assemble the bag, all my pieces are ready! Sewing really is a great hobby! If you've never tried and are interested, I suggest giving it a shot! I really did not have a sewing background when I got my first sewing machine, I just bought some patterns and kept trying. I also tore apart bags of my own to see how they were made. It was definitely a trial & error process and my skills have grown so much! The pics are of Marie Bags in process and Mini-Zippys in progress! Enjoy! :) Love-Mich

Hello from Chance's Corner!

Hi blog-lovers. My name is Chance! I am the loyal pup and mascot of The Love, Mich Collection owner, Michelle and Mr. Love-Mich, Glenn. This place is getting so busy with the Holidays right around the corner that I'm afraid they will put me to work soon!

While I am currently unattended, I thought I'd introduce myself. Here is a little about me:
I love to be with my parents.
I love to snuggle.
I especially love sitting/sleeping on some one's lap.
I also enjoy chasing squirrels.
I will do just about anything for a treat.
I force my parents to walk me multiple times a day to breathe in that fresh air!
I have a whole basket of toys, but I prefer to chew holes into fresh tennis balls.
I enjoy sleeping under my Momma's sewing table while she works, but I often get thread all over my paws and toys. (Not happy about that)
My parents know instantly when I'm up to something, although I really try to hide it.
My favorite time of year is the winter because my parents stay home with me and we watch movies.

Ut-oh, I have to run, time to get in another walk before it rains. I will visit again. Please enjoy the picture of myself. I was just a pup in this picture but don't I look cute! :)
