Appliqued and Quilted Pillow





I spent some time this weekend designing a new pillow.  The top has been appliqued and then quilted in 100% cotton designer prints.  It has been bound like a quilt in a cute black and white stripe and made in an envelope style and backed in a natural colored linen.  The cover is made to fit a 16 inch pillow form.

I will be selling this and other pillow covers in my Etsy shop soon.

Halloween Jack-O-Lantern Goodie Bags




 


I have been designing some new products for my Etsy shop.  Since the Bunny Jelly Bean Bags were such a great hit at Easter time this year, I decided to design a treat bag for Halloween goodies.

These little bags are fully lined and the Jack-O-Lantern's face has been appliqued by fusing and then stitching.  These were sewn using cute orange/white and green/lime polka dot fabrics.

I will have to get them reviewed by Emma (my 6 year old granddaughter) the next time she comes over.  I imagine she will be taking one home with her, as she usually leaves my home with at least one find.

"Bunny Ears" Jelly Bean Drawstring Bags - Easter Gift bags

 





My worktable is full of little bunny "parts" for the drawstring Easter gift bags I am making.  They are just the right size for holding a stash of jelly beans or a small gift in your Easter baskets.  I love picking out all of the fun color combinations.  They are now listed for sale in my Etsy shop.

Easter Basket Tags or Gift Tags






I made these cute Easter Basket Tags in linen and 100% cotton prints.  I love the jelly bean fabric.
I designed these to be appliqued with an initial too - that way they can be used to identify a little one's Easter basket.

Linen Valentine Gift Tags







I spent part of my weekend finishing up some Valentine designs for my Etsy shop.  I had so much fun with these linen gift tags!  I used my Silhouette Cameo and a marker holder by Amy Chomas ( http://amychomas.blogspot.com ) to help make these.  Love, love, love the look of the way it printed on linen using a Sharpie no-bleed pen.  I am still thinking of others that I'd like to do - but.... now I am on to fabric gift bags.

Christmas Fabric Gift Tags






I finished this set of fabric gift tags today.  I made them out of a lovely cotton/linen blend by Kaufman and a red/cream diagonal designer print.  They were fun to make and I am thinking of others that I can make for Easter, Valentines, and birthdays.  What fun to give a gift with a tag that can become a keepsake!

Personalized Fabric Letter to Santa Envelope






I designed this cute fabric envelope for my Etsy Shop and listed it today.  This envelope is padded and fully lined and can be used year after year for your child's letter to Santa or thank you note to leave with Santa's cookies.  It has a ribbon loop, so it could be hung on the mantle with your child's stocking.
