Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

On Vacation....I like the way that sounds!

Hi All! Beginning on Saturday my shop will be "on vacation", so if you need any last minute handmade gifts for the holidays, today is the day to still have it in time for Christmas!
(I ship 2 day priority, so you could even have it by the end of the week!)

How about a fun "frenchy" handbag for a girlfriend?
Custom hand towels for your mother-in-law?

Know a sweet little girl getting a kitchen for Christmas?
She needs an apron!

A Sling Bag for your sister to run errands?
And don't forget that crayon rolls make great stocking stuffers!
(crayons included!)
I will be back tomorrow with my final Handmade for the Holidays Treasury!


  1. Super cute ideas! lOVE the sling bag. I love the fabric you used. Very nice blog!
