If you’ve been hanging around my Facebook, you may have seen that there are some new products in the shop. I’m so excited to share with you some of the recent goodies coming out of my sewing room (ok, corner — but have you seen how awesome it is???).
This half apron is one of my favorites. I love funky and quirky and loud, bright pieces, but this one is quiet. It whispers, but it says something pretty sweet, I think, between those polka dots and rustic grey with a dusty rose tie. The apron is reversible and made of sturdy duck cloth, so this is a real work horse. The straps are extra long, so they accommodate all body types, but for many will have enough tie to do multiple waist wraps, which gives it an unusual, boho sort of look.
Speaking of neutral and aprons, I also made a lightweight, cotton full apron. It’s reversible, featuring the same fabrics in the reverse places (plain grey on the skirt portion and the triangle print on the bust). I snuck some mint thread on the black ties, because completely color-free is just not what I do (ha). But I love how easy going and versatile this apron is. It fits so many different styles and ages (And possible genders? Would any of you men folk wear this?).
And then there are these pot holders. I love quilting things for people who don’t need quilts. Quilting is a sewing technique that can be used in many forms. The first pot holder with the blue border also showcases a bit of my love of historic African American quilts. That probably sounds strange coming from a white girl, but I have always loved the boldness, asymmetry, and sense of improvisation that you see. Particularly when I look at that first pot holder, that’s what I see, and I love it.
Burp cloths. I can’t not. Aside from the fact that the response has been overwhelmingly supportive in the department of burp cloths, it’s also one of the places in life you just need a bit of color: you have a newborn, your life has changed in every way, and your tiny human just threw up milk everywhere. Yeah, let’s make a beautiful linen for that. Amiright?
And here is a fun, quilted trifold burp cloth. The other side features two different prints, but also with a sense of tribal color and pattern. Even though there is a little pink in the feather fabric, this burp cloth has an overwhelmingly tribal, neutral feel. I like that.
These are my $1 bows! At the farmers market I literally keep them in a jar. A jar of glittery bows. Why is that so fun? The gold ones are made of a glitter paper. The navy and white striped bows are a knit fabric. And don’t think for one second these are just for children 😉
One of my best sellers is this turban-style headband. I make them in baby, toddler, and adult sizes, and they are great in every single one. I love that you can wear them over your hair like this, or you can use it to hold strays down with an up do. There are several fabric selections, so if you’re not into the feathers, check out etsy to see what else we have.
Speaking of headbands, there are also several styles as well as several knit fabrics to choose from. And that adorable, chubby-cheeked baby is Nugget! Can you believe how big she is!? She just started walking too.
This white baby quilt is probably my favorite thing I’ve made lately. It was so hard for me to make something so… white. I ended up piecing three or four kinds of white fabric (cotton and poly blend) together in a variety of shapes: a giant polka dot triangle, thin white wood grain stripes, etc. If you look closely, you can see it. Then the back: that blue floral awesome fabric is felt! It’s the softest, sweetest felt you’ll ever touch. So apart from being bright in contrast to the white, it’s warmer and softer too. And then the light mint border. I love. I just love. I’ll make everything mint-colored. My love for that color is weird and dangerous. I cannot wait to find a home for this quilt!
So here comes the part where I need your feedback. I want to know what you want to see made? Or what do you love that has already been put together? Help me be better 🙂 Look forward to hearing from you!
