Slow Progress on Cosmetic Bags

Asian Silk, Tapestry & Upholstery Cosmetic Bags

You can see from the photo that I have six different Asian Silks and four tapestry fabrics ready to be sewn into my signature line cosmetic bags. I've been so busy with real life responsibilities, (helping with my husband's business) that I haven't made much progress on finishing them. Another problem that delayed the project were the zippers. They finally arrived yesterday.

On Tuesday, I took a break from sewing and attended a hearing in the Phil Spector civil suit against his former attorney, Robert Shapiro. I hope to get my notes up on that hearing either later today or tomorrow on Trials & Tribulations.

On top of that, I've been trying to get some personal sewing finished so my own Christmas gifts will go out on time. I still don't know if I will get every one's present in the mail and delivered yet.

I'll take photos through the construction of the cosmetic bags and put those up in an entry when they're completed.

2010 Kitty & Doggie Mat Beds Sale!

Shop my Etsy Store for Kitty Mat Beds!

The introduction of my Kitty Mat Beds was a big success last year, so I've put them on sale again this year. The Mat Beds are made from three layers of fleece and one layer of flannel print. Your pet (as well as your furniture) will appreciate these machine washable mat beds. You can choose a flannel mat bed print from most of the prints in my Flannel Collection. Flannel prints with the designation "BO" are for throw blankets only.

Regularly, my (16" x 19") kitty mat beds sell for $14.00 each. Today, they are now on sale for only $10.50! That's 25% off the regular price, and shipping is free! The medium-size mat bed (19" x 24") regularly sells for $19.00. Today, they are on sale for only $14.50 with free shipping!

This Sale Ends January 31st, 2011.

In my last entry on new fabrics, I mentioned picking up this cute gray and orange kitty fleece print. I made a throw blanket, matching neck scarf and the two kitty mat beds below. These beds are three layers of fleece, no flannel and are a little larger than the standard size Kitty Mat Bed. These beds would be big enough for two medium sized kitties who like to nap together.

Larger sizes are by special order. E-mail me your needs and I will quote you a price. Shipping on all mat beds during the sale is free.

New Fabrics & Miscellaneous Items

Shop all available items at my Etsy Store!

On "Black Friday" I hit three different Jo Ann Fabric stores and scored some prints for my cotton, flannel and fleece collections.


Here are two prints for the flannel collection. I had been looking for this particular pink ribbon print ever since I ran out of it last year. I found enough to make a single blanket. There is enough of the snowman print to make a blanket and several Christmas stockings. The Fleece & Flannel Blanket and Christmas Stocking Sale ends December 15th.

669BO Pink Ribbon 2

689B1S Snowmen on Red


Here is another Debbie Mumm print that can be used in just about any direction for Market Line Bags or Hot/Cold Packs. The Hot/Cold Pack Sale ends December 31st, 2010.

427 Kitty Treats & Toys


This is one of my favorite prints from Debbie Mumm. I couldn't find the fleece last year but found a small piece of the fleece this year, enough for one blanket. I still have several yards of the matching cotton print but I sold out of the matching flannel last year. The Fleece & Panne Blanket Sale is on through January 31st, 2011.

704 Kitties Chasing Mice
(1 available: $29.00)


This is another print that I picked up during my marathon shopping days. I saw a woman in the cutting line with this fleece print but she had purchased the last of it at that store. I found the print at another store and bought enough to make a blanket, neck scarf and several kitty mat beds. The blanket and neck scarf are finished with Gun Metal panne. Kitty & Doggie Mat Beds go on sale later today.

Gray & Orange Kitties
(1 available: 45" x 59" $29.00 + S&H)

Gray & Orange Kitties Neck Scarf
(1 Available: 9" x 50" $9.50 + S&H)

These two panne prints are the last ones available. I was clearing out my scrap panne box and found I had just enough of these prints to make throw blankets. The Fleece & Panne Throw Blanket Sale will end January 31st, 2011.

Burgundy Tie Dye
(1 available: 45" x 59" $29.00 + S&H)
