Reading Pillow! Birthday gift + product testing = PERFECTION!

I made this reading pillow slip cover for my brother for his birthday this week. As soon as he saw this fabric he really wanted something with it, but I already had some plans for me lol. I did come up with this great idea so we could both share in the junk food goodness.  This fabric is up for preorder over at  Royal Pixie Custom Fabric , they have some great junk food, and sweet treat prints up over there on this preorder. I was so excited to get this one, and I am looking at the chocolates to order. Check them out and let me know what your favorite is!  You may remember me mentioning I have an embroidery machine? I saved up all my birthday money, and was given some early Christmas money to get all set up. It is so cool to be able to add little touches to things, and really set them apart from other projects. For this reading pillow I put my brothers name on it and 2 of his favorite junk food items.  It is not perfect I admit but this was the first one I had ma

Doesn't this just scream Kaylee? If you have been following along for a while now, or know my family personally, you know my sister needs no help from anyone! There will be no knight needed here.  When I saw this graphic from the current round over at The Fabric Geeks , I was so excited about it.  I knew I wanted to make her a mini swagger, now the sugar pea from  Gober Pea , it has enough sass, but can be total kick butt too.  I added 3 of the star power ups embroidered on the front ruffle too, because I am so excited about the new machine I am added touches everywhere, and they are her favorite power up!  There are several other really cute designs up this round, a life is full of choices panel and some of the amazing coordinates for bags as well. There is still time to get in on this order if you are interested just let me know! 

This month we celebrate Handbags, wallets, diaper bags and the like!

I wasn't sure I was going to love making bags, and now here I am with a whole month to celebrate the different style and companies.  I love how easy they are to add your own personal flare too, you can change up a couple things and it become a unique one of a kind item.  This post is just a few of the different styles I have made over the last year, I have been working on so many more for this month, they make sure great gifts heading into the holidays.  I can customize with different fabrics, and embroidery a bag just for you, most of the ones shown here and over the month are up for sale on my website , and peeks on  facebook .   The fabric choices can really change the look as can the difference between lycra and woven. Adding in foam and different interfacing for more or less structure. There are just so many ways to change the same pattern up and have them look different while being the same basic style. 

I want to be where the people... aren't...

I don't know about you but this design makes me so happy. I just think the saying is super funny, and I am in love e with the jewel tones of this design. The detail on the scales is amazing. So much more than I have ever seen before. They have such great dimension.  This is the Summit pack is quickly becoming a favorite! I put a clip on each side so you can change up how you wear it since its a sling
