More Cashmere Mittens!

You might remember all my adventures in making mittens from fulled wool sweaters.  I’ve pared down my wool collections to just cashmere (and some other wools to use under the suede palms) and come up with a few more pairs of cashmere mittens for this year’s craft shows.  These mittens are made with suede palms… Continue reading More Cashmere Mittens!

Newest Cross-Body Bags!

I’ve been working on these new cross-body bags for months among the other parts of my life.  I had the idea of creating textural crazy-patchwork bag flaps and then decorating on top of the patchwork.  Remember the glass beads and embroidery thread I posted about?  I happily put those to use.  Each bag flap is… Continue reading Newest Cross-Body Bags!

Ah, Vintage Cotton Floral Sheets!

I will never get tired of looking at these and finding them in thrift stores! Check out this pair of Wabasso pillowcases I found in a local Value Village: They were so crisp still! And then this beautiful find at a newly-opened Value Village a couple of hours away: I was so excited to find… Continue reading Ah, Vintage Cotton Floral Sheets!

Embroidery, Sequin, and Bead Boho Bag Creations!

Remember this post where I showed you my embroidery-on-floral-sheet project?  Five months later, I am finished making this boho tote bag!  I had used that project to have some more fun with doing latticework embroidery, where you laid threads in a criss-cross pattern and then stitch x‘s over each crossing.  I aimed to cover many… Continue reading Embroidery, Sequin, and Bead Boho Bag Creations!

Adorning Fabrics; More Vintage Sheet Finds!!

I love to adorn fabrics with embroidery and other things.  And if you’ve followed enough of my work, you also realize that I love bright colours.  This photo below shows my embroidery thread stash.  I actually culled some skeins out of it a few weeks ago because I knew I wouldn’t be drawn to them… Continue reading Adorning Fabrics; More Vintage Sheet Finds!!
