I turned an XLT button up shirt into a dress. I mentioned it in this comic.

I designed some fabric for my husband’s cousins featuring their cute little pup, and made laptop sleeves with it!

A trio of travel bags for my friend’s mum:

And a couple of bags for my friend! I found this sweet fabric at a cute little store in Littleton, NH and picked up a fat quarter bundle with every color :D

I got a custom order request at the farmer’s market last weekend for, essentially, a much larger version of my zipper pouch pattern with a handle. So, a wristlet! I made a prototype immediately, and I’m trying to decide if I want to re-introduce wristlets back into the shop.

I hilariously forgot to order more bag labels before I ran out, so I’m kind of at a shop stand still right now. Oops! I have about ten which I’m saving in case I get any special order requests before the new ones come in. The good news is that I’m completely wiping out my “Outstanding Projects” list! Completely. Everything is getting done. And I’m working on developing a few new items for the shop :)

I made some cool bags for my sister-in-law with this AMAZING Beauty and the Beast fabric she nabbed:

I took a special order for some mustache pencil cases:

I used some Harley Davidson bandannas to make mini pouches and makeup bags for a former coworker:

I went on the hunt for Bruins fabric, also for a former coworker:

I spent some time time designing Tofu fabric for my husband’s cousins! Tofu is their adorable pup :D

I still have a couple of long-outstanding projects I’m planning to wrap up this year, so keep en eye out for those!

New in the Shop: Sugar City!

I’m super excited to announce the launch of Sugar City– a collection made from my very own fabric designs! I’ve been working on this for about a year; playing with my process and deciding my favorite designs so far. My husband got me the Spoonflower Handbook for Christmas last year, and my sister-in-law & her husband got me the Spoonflower Starter Kit for Christmas this year, which also includes a color guide and fabric samples. These resources have been immensely helpful in my journey and I highly recommend them to anyone who has an idea but doesn’t know quite how to start. Thank you, Norm, Jess, and Doug!

I work primarily with paper, scan the images into the computer, and change the background color to match the color guide. I leave the main image untouched (usually) and in some cases you can see the imperfections in the paper. I think it’s really neat!

To celebrate, all Sugar City bags are 20% off this week! Discount applied automatically.

 

(“Gear Art.” I made this with a Spirograph)

(“Dancing Planet” was originally called “Hula Hoopin’ Saturn” but I felt like it didn’t have enough rings.)

(“Judy Meets the Angler” is taken right from my second Tragic Whale Story: Louis’s New Friend)

(“Panda and his Bone” first appeared on the blog in 2011!)

(“Platypus on Purple.” Platypuses are under-represented in pop culture. But so cute!)

(“Buttered Toast” because I like breakfast.)

(“In The Trees.” This was my first attempt at a seamless, repeating pattern.)

Let me know what you think!
