The Ornament/Package Toppers are Coming! The Ornament/Package Toppers are Coming! 2014

Sampling of Unfinished Ornament/Package Toppers

The Ornament/Package Toppers are back, and they will be on sale via my Etsy Store very soon! The last time I offered these little gems for sale was in 2010!

I take a cotton print with a Christmas, Jewish or animal theme, stuff them with a polyester fill and add a hanging ribbon. And to make them smell wonderful, I add a touch of my special lavender and peppermint sachet mix.

You can hang them on your tree, curtain rods or add to the top of a package.  They are child friendly, so you no longer have to worry about damaged ornaments. They also make wonderful gift sets.

Examples of past Ornament/Package Toppers that will be returning this year:


Dancing Snowmen

Penguin Winter Sports

Let It Snow

The Ornaments/Package Toppers will be in the "Ornaments Section" in my Etsy Store.

The Perfect Bobbin Box (or Tray)

I recently dropped by bobbin tray and
had to organize it which prompted this post.

I searched for many years trying to find a bobbin box that would hold all my bobbins in the same place. I finally stumbled upon a solution. The answer is simple and inexpensive, if you know where to look.
I found this little plastic tray that fits bobbins!

I have a separate tray for each of my sewing machines. I also take the time to write the thread color number in permanent marker on the bobbin.

I found this great plastic tray inside a specific brand/type of cigar box:
 LA GLORIA CUBANA, Glorias en Cedros

All you need to do is shop cigar shops and ask them if they carry this specific cigar. If they do, ask them to save that cigar box with the tray, for you.

Inside the La Gloria Cubana box.

This type of cigar comes in a 7 per box and 14 per box (double tray). Happy cigar box hunting!

Making Throw Blankets

Blankets are now available to buy via my store on Etsy.

There's not a day that's gone by in the last two months, or longer, that I haven't been sewing.  What I'm working on now are throw blankets. I'm getting ready for the next sale. I hope to have about 15 blankets done within the next week. I'll be offering free shipping and discounts on my standard size fleece and panne throws.

This is how a blanket starts out..
 Teal blanket waiting to be pinned..

Then they are pinned, triple sewn and ... voila! Blankets

Three pinned blankets on the left;
five finished blankets on the right.

MARKET BAG MADNESS SALE 2014

All custom orders, click-to-buy-sales are now available
 via my store on Etsy.

936 Peacock, SOLDOUT Etsy Store.

The Market Bag Madness Sale 2014 is finally here!
Note! New bags have been added to my Etsy Store.

 ORDER A COTTON PRINT MARKET BAG
for only $39.00 & FREE SHIPPING!**USA only Includes free metal feet & free polyester liner!

The Market Line Bags were originally designed around a paper grocery sack. They will stand up like a paper sack and fold up like one too. But that's where the similarity ends. The Market Line Bags are eye-catching, stylish and versatile. You can use them as a purse, a carry-on travel bag, a special bag for work papers or for local shopping around town. They are lightweight yet strong. Weight bearing seams are double-sewn and will easily carry several bricks. Take care of them and they will last for years and years.

Over the past several months I've been shopping and collecting many new prints for One-of-a-Kind and Limited Edition Market Line Bags.  Shop all the new cotton prints HERE and new tapestry prints HERE.  By ordering a Limited Edition or One-of-a-Kind print, you will not be carrying a mass market produced bag like everyone else. Special orders and inquiries welcome.

You can also shop the complete Classic Cotton Collection (over 160 prints) HERE, or the Limited Edition Cotton Prints (over 55 prints) HERE.

Although Drapery/Tapestry prints are not on sale, I'm offering free shipping on those designs. Email me for details on the cost of specific Drapery/Tapestry prints. Market Line Bags currently listed on my Etsy store are not discounted but will be shipped free during September 2014.

HURRY.
