Shop Talk - New items coming

There is more fabric coming for the Etsy shop. If I can, I will post pictures over the next couple of weeks so you can see the new fabrics.

I also have many new patterns for the eBay store. I have already added a few but watch as I add the rest over of the next week.

Did you know that there are only a little more than 150 days to Christmas? Do you know what you're going to make or what you're going to buy? This is always a dilemma for me. I always seem to plan way more than I can actually do between work and parties. How do you stay on schedule with everything that you want to make as gifts?

Remember everyone who uses the links to enter the eBay store and spends more than $15.00 during the month of July will be entered into a drawing to win $15.00 off their next order.

Happy Sewing!

There are several new patterns and notions added to the store this week. Check out the What's New section of the store to see the newly added items. There are several holiday home dec style patterns. Here's a couple of examples of snowman items:

The Candy Cane Snowman pattern by Thread That Bind. This snowman is approximately 15" tall. Very cute for winter decorating.


the Love Doesn't Melt pattern by Waltzing with Bears. The pattern is hand embroidered.

This looks very similar to the Simple Sleeved Shawl pattern by Indygo Junction. Check it out and tell me what you think.

170 days till Christmas

Can you believe that it's 170 days till Christmas? Although it seems like it's a long way off, the time will fly. I will periodically put up various ideas for Christmas gifts. Hopefully, they will spark an idea or two. Here's the first:

This is the "Castle Keeper Tote" pattern. This is a great tote for anyone on your list. However, I see this as great fuel for a child's imagination. Little boys could have carry their knights and armies. Little girls could carry their princesses and extra clothing. It would also make a great diaper bag. This is a roomy bag at 13" x 14" "Central Keep" with 4 outside wall pockets, 2 roof pockets, along with the tower storage areas.

Here's a freebie gift idea that is a repeat from last year: "Shoe Bag" . This is a great bag for traveling. A pair is required for men's shoes. One bag will hold a ladies pair of 3" heels.

Happy Sewing!
