Projects as of Late

I haven't been posting as much as I'd like. Part of that is due to a trip to visit some adorable nephews, and also because I've been so busy with orders the last week and a half!

As of right now, I've sold 22 orders on etsy, and 20 of them have been ties and diaper covers, and sometimes multiple sets! I've been sending lots to photographers for photo shoots, first birthday parties, newborn pictures, etc. I just received a link from a photographer with some of the pictures she took, and as soon as I receive permission I'll pass those along for everyone to check out!

Here's a couple photos of what I've been making recently:

The argyles have been, by far the most popular! I have made so many of them I think I am getting tired of looking at it! But they do come out cute, every time. :)

Well, off to work I go! I sent out one order this morning, and throughout the day I received orders for 5 more sets. So I need to get busy! :) 

Thanks for your continued support!

So far we have sent orders to 11 different states! There are still a few more in the works, but just wanted to share this map with you all!

Thanks for your continued support! It's been a lot of fun so far!

Another Cute Purse!

Ok so this one is so cute, and completely reversible! I just want to keep all these bags and purses! :) You can check it out here in my etsy shop.

It reminds me of bags I used to buy for my friends when I lived in Bangkok. Maybe I'll have to name it the Bangkok Bag. :)


The first two orders from Seams2u at my etsy store were shipped out this morning! Now I have a couple other orders I need to get busy working on!

Thanks so much for your support and encouragement! :)

Grocery Bag Dispensers!

One of my friends asked me to make her a holder for her grocery bags, and here's the one I made:
I had some comments from friends asking for others, so here are a couple more I made, and have put in my etsy shop. I do have others I plan on making, but if you have a particular request for a color scheme or pattern, leave a comment!

Also, you can click on the pictures below and it will take you straight to my etsy shop! :)

Latest Items!

I have recently posted a few more items in my etsy shop . . . thanks for bearing with me as I get more inventory available! :)

A few weeks ago I listed this adorable lunch bag. Perfect for back to school! I think I'll have to make one for myself as well! :) I took pictures and plan on posting a tutorial, so you can make one for yourself! No promises of when that will be . . . we'll see when I get the time!

I also finished this purse and posted it for sale as well. I wanted to keep it so badly (cuz it's so cute!), but I know the last thing I need right now is another purse! So I decided to share it with someone who can make a little more use out of it than I can. And a great benefit of this purse is that this material (Schumacher Fergana Print), is usually over $70 a yard, but I was able to get it for a great deal, so I'm passing along that savings to whoever purchases it! Who doesn't like a great deal?!

Baby Tie!

I have been experimenting with baby ties recently, and thought of another way to make them!

I got an old tie from the thrift shop, used the skinny end (the side that is usually the 'tail' of the tie!), and tied it so there was a 12" neck and the measurement from the bottom of the knot to the top of the tie is about 9". I usually clip the neck and attach velcro so it makes it easy to put on, like a bib. But this time I decided to attach some elastic. I cut away a couple inches of the neck and attached a piece of velcro instead. It doesn't look the nicest around the neck, but I figured that part will fit under the collar anyway.

A fun, quick project! I look forward to my nephews trying it on! :)
