A Name Tag

I love this little nametag.  I saw one like it on Instagram and decided to give it a shot.


It is applique with pebbling in the background and I free motioned my name on it.  I even found a little charm to add to the corner.  What I forgot though was to add a way to actually wear it.  Looks like I'll be making a matching scrappy lanyard to go with it. 

And yes, I am aware this that this is a cross between a peacock and an owl.  Makes it a little more fun don't you think?! ;)

Custom Order

This was a fun one to make since I love the colors.

This order for a vendor apron came in through Etsy.


Three large pockets and one small one make it the perfect apron for shows and events.  Even waitresses and hairdressers could get good use from it!!

Maybe I should make one for myself...

A Few Small Finishes

These are a new type of pouch I'm trying out at shows...


...a scrapbuster for sure, which I really need since my bins are overflowing, and a few more keyring clutches.



And this little pincushion which I absolutely LOVE!!  In fact it has now become mine :).  I do plan on making and selling more of them.  I have been collecting selvages for awhile now for some undecided project but I'm sure I can spare a few for pincushions ;)

Indie Trunk Show Recap

I'll keep this one short and sweet after my long winded, photo laden post about Deluxe :)

For Indie Trunk Show I reserved a 10' x 20' booth.  I don't think I'll be doing that again...it felt way too spread out and I felt like I lost out on interacting with some customers and therefore lost sales or potential future sales.  We will also be using a canopy frame to draw attention to our booth at future events.  I'm picking it up this weekend :)

Speaking of future events, I've been trying to get a schedule together for next year.  I've got one show confirmed and one pending so far.  Lots more research to do in that area!!


See what I mean about being spread out too much?

#AlltheSwaps Take 2

I have completed two more swap packages:

The Festive Mug Rug Swap:


This was my first attempt at Economy Blocks and I love them!  I see many more of these in the future :)  This one has a long ways to go so let's hope it gets there before Christmas!!


And the Pincushion Swap:


For this one I decided to do a Christmas themed Log Cabin pincushion.  And I'm sending a cute coffee sleeve with it for good measure :) as well as a few other goodies.

Hubby's To Blame

It started with a texted photo from my husband asking me if I had ever made one of the items pictured.  He was at his mother's house and had found a poorly pieced, old mug rug on her end table.  Sadly I made it for her a couple of years ago.

I had forgotten all about it.  But after seeing it I knew she needed a new one.  I already had all of my Christmas fabrics out so this is what I came up with for her...



Squeak approved :)

Nearly Wordless Wednesday-Megaman

Made as a birthday present for my brother :)  It's really too big for a pillow like I originally intended so maybe it can be a wall hanging...
