Ok, so this post is coming a little late. Earlier this summer, Harper Collins Canada's facebook page asked their fans to tell them what we "liked" about their page. I responded and they liked me response so much, they sent me one of their awesome mugs! I absolutely *love* it!!
Have you visited Harper Collins Canada's facebook page?
Good Morning! Its been a busy weekend. I had a long list of sewing to get done, but life got in the way ;) I'm still waiting on my fabric order, so I can't get started on a big chunk of my orders. I wish there was a "Lens Mills" type place close to me so I could just go pick up all my supplies! Here's my sewing to-do list once my supplies get in:
2 Mug Rug orders in "Hello Sunshine Yellow Birds"
2 Mug Rug orders in "Hello Sunshine Red Birds"
1 Mug Rug + Coffee Sleeve set order in "Hello Sunshine Red Birds
1 Mug Rug + Coffee Sleeve set order in Purple / Aqua batik prints
1 18" Waldorf-inspired doll
1 complete outfit for said doll
Oh well... it was not a total write off however. I don't normally find time to sew something for myself, and I did get to make myself a sleeve for my iPad. And its gorgeous!! If I may say so myself :) The outer fabric is Alexander Henry's *Koto - Ancient City* print (no longer in production, sadly). I love love love this fabric, and got it from a super awesome friend in a fabric swap. This print was a complete surprise to me and I love it to bits! The lining inside the sleeve (and the pocket) is Heather Bailey's *Welcome Road in Olive*.
I think I'm going to buy some cute fabrics today - saw some amazing prints on Etsy that I simply must have! =D That's it from my end today.
I had a successful sewing night last night. I made three custom eye masks - complete with quilting, adjustable Velcro straps and backed with super soft cotton velour.
I still have a long list of orders to get to, but this was a good start. Right? =D
Three custom eye masks, ready to head home to their owners! So squishy soft, and perfect for a relaxing snooze :)
...and backed with a lovely lime green cotton velour.
This one uses Michael Miller's "Toot Toot" print for the front...
...and a gorgeous, vibrant orange cotton velour for the back.
And finally, possibly my personal favorite. The fabric is Timeless Treasures "Boy Meets Girl"...
...and a soft lilac cotton velour for the back.
All three have an adjustable Velcro strap. I made the straps extra long, so the owner can cut it down to their perfect size! Next time, I will make an encased elastic - easy on/off for those highly interrupted naps for us mommies :)
