Hello! Happy Tuesday to you! I just wanted to pop in and let you all know that I did a wee shop update. I put the Christmas things away :) and plopped in about a half dozen note takers in their place. I had to force myself to stop making them - they are so much fun to make, and the fabric combos are endless. But I've got orders to get crackin' on so I figured it's best I stop before I suddenly had enough to build a structurally unsound house out of.
The fact that I have SEVEN and not an even number like six is totally bugging me, so if someone wants to buy one to appease my anal retentiveness go for it :) Here's a better look at what's for sale:
I've got a few simple patchwork covers ready to go. I'm still in love with purple and gray of my handbag, and I had enough fabric left to make one of these. And I can't decide which of the other two I like more. I've been wanting to do orange and aqua for a long time and finally found a project to showcase it. And the soft gray dots paired with the bright red and green makes me think of spring.
These fabrics lasted about two hours once I got them home before I cut into them. I LOVE that bright, crisp, tattoo-inspired print. The colors are so vibrant and cheerful. And the washi tape print makes me think of those days when you used to put stickers all over your notebooks. That was a nice print to find--it's hard to locate online, but I looked straight ahead at just the right moment and it was sitting on the store shelf waiting for me to notice it.
And of course I had to make a few text prints and typewriters--the one on the left is the Madrona Road collection, and on the right is Odds and Ends. The typewriters are Melody Miller and are quite difficult to find. I had to pay more than I wanted to for a couple fat quarters, but once I get a bug in my brain that I need something I'm not happy until I have it or have exhausted myself in the search.
So if you need a quick handmade gift or would like to treat yourself take a look. The insides are fun, too--I didn't show you those on purpose so you might feel motivated to click over. I'm such an imp, I know. Ta for now!
