An All-Time Favorite

Well, even with a surgery just over a week ago, Mom and I were able to make seven new market bags for the market this past week! It was so enjoyable to spend basically all day Wednesday and Thursday together sewing away, and talking about anything and everything. Since I am still on crutches I had to rely on Mom to be the photographer for this photo shoot, and I'm so thankful she helped me out with this. I love the new fabric designs and colors we chose to use, and we hope you do too! Here are just a few of the pictures from the shoot - we will post the rest of them on our Facebook page soon...

^^^ My favorite (The picture really doesn't do the colors and design justice)! ^^^

All The Latest

We've been making a few different styles of bags lately, and here are pictures of each one.

This is our Hobo Bag pattern ($28.00 each), and we've made these bags out of some soft, rich wool, and some sturdier home-dec cotton:

Here we have our famous Market Bag pattern ($36.00 each) - a definite crowd-pleaser!

Next is our Carry-All Tote ($38.00 each). I am actually using a tote made from this pattern now, and love it because it literally carries everything I need!

Finally we have our newest style that we've added to our collection: The Everyday Tote ($28.00 each). It's definitely a fun addition to the patterns we already use!

A New Flock!

I had fun tromping around in the snow taking these pictures of our new owl flock, even though my pants were soaked by the time I got done! =] I'll be posting more pictures on Facebook soon, so please check our page if you'd like to see more.

We're Getting All Matchy-Matchy

 Mom has been very busy making these adorable totes and matching pouches! The totes would work great for taking things to work at an office job, or for a college student heading off to class. The pouches would work great as a catch-all for smaller things carried inside the tote, even though there are three pockets lining the inside of the tote. The pouches would also work great separately as a make-up bag, or a case for toys with small pieces like Polly Pockets or Legos.

Swinger was such a great little model for us! I got him when I was an 8 year old in the hospital for a surgery, and he's still brightening my day as a 19 year old.

These travel pouches are so much fun! I love the way Mom pieced together fabric for a patchwork look.

If you are interested in purchasing a tote or pouch, please contact me through our Facebook page or my e-mail address, which is
The totes are $36.00 each, and the pouches are $22.00 each. If you'd like to buy a matching set, then the price for a tote and a pouch together is $53.00.

Staying Warm?


All this cold winter has inspired me to make some neck warmers! These are made from super soft fleece and flannel, and are filled with rice. Simply pop one in the microwave for no more than 2 minutes, and then wrap it around your neck. We love using our neck warmers to sooth a head or neck ache, or to simply warm up after a long day.

If you are interested in purchasing one of our neck warmers please contact me at:
The neck warmers are $15.00 each, plus a $4.00 shipping cost.

Our Little Model

 We needed a model for one of our owls, and thankfully this little sweetie was ready to step-up and help us out!

I hope you like this little owl, and we look forward to having many more at our booth this summer for you to see!

As far as our model goes, please pray for Abby. She was recently diagnosed with cancer, and has a long road of recovery ahead. She is constantly in our thoughts, and we pray for the Lord to heal her body of this sickness.

If you'd like more details to better pray for Abby and her family, you can find more here:

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We have had a box of my grandpa's old neckties down in the basement for months, and yesterday I finally got the urge to make something out of them! I found this super cool tutorials for zippered pouches here, and decided to try it! I love the results, and can't wait to make more!

First comes the "deconstruction" stage...

Then you add interfacing and batting...

Next you sew on the old tie tags (I love the character they add!), and ends on the zippers.

This little one is almost finished - I just have to sew the side seams...

The final result!

Then I made a larger pouch out of two bigger ties!

Like I said, I love how they turned out, and I can't wait to make more for a fun new addition to our booth this summer!
