Fabric Finds

My favorite fabric source had a sale this weekend and I came away with lots of goodies and lots of inspiration. I got so much great stuff I can’t decide what to make first! Here are a few of my favorites:

Loving this Print

I found this pretty print deep in my stash when I was searching for something else and BOOM, just knew I had to make something with it. I love the color combo and the shapes. I’ve probably had this swatch for 5 years – how did it take me so long to notice it?!? It was even large enough to make two things. For the foldover clutch, I paired it with a buttery soft and buttery colored scrap that totally looks like leather, but it’s not – it’s polyester! This item is listed here in my etsy shop.

That’s a Wrap!

Despite yesterday’s snowy weather, the Ridge show was super busy for most of the day. I enjoyed seeing lots of friends, family, and customers – both returning and new. A big thanks to everyone for coming out and for your support! And a huge thanks to the show’s founder, organizer and self-proclaimed mother hen, Siouxsan Miller, for putting on such a great event. Here are some photos from the day…

Fave purse EVER

OMG, you guys – I love this purse! haha, that’s the only thing I could think of to say to describe how I feel about this one…. this could be my favorite creation of all time. As it usually happens when I make a patchwork purse, I just started laying out some of my favorite scraps and before I knew it, they all came together just right… then once they were sewn together, I spied the red suede that I had salvaged from some old pillows. I thought, hmmmm, will that go through my average sewing machine, heavy as it is? Sure enough, it did – amazingly easy, I might add. I was surprised that lil’ old Bessie could handle a couple layers of it at that. So off I went and I had a really good feeling about this one, but wasn’t sure how it would all come together. Well, here it is! And I’m very pleased! Hope you are, too.
