I am excited that I will be hanging my artwork up at http://satellite.communitytv.org/ on Soquel ave. for the Month of March starting with First Friday on the 1st of March. Check them out!
Also I am creating my artwork on products like pillows, wallets and a few keychains! I found a very nice company based in the UK that is making these items for me. I wanted to create products that were more high end. Their fabrics and goods are nice so I am excited to be working with them! I just got in samples and will be photographing them up!
These are great gift ideas for Mom for Mothers day, Birthdays, Wedding gift, etc…….. Check them out! Let me know what you think and if you want a certain piece of my work on a pillow/accessory that I don’t already have one of…..let me know!!!! 🙂

sorry that I have not posted in awhile! Been reorganizing my sewing/craft room. Fabrics sorted, folded and now easy to see what I have! Ideas popping in my head! But I still have tons to do in here! Can’t wait to get cranking on new things! 🙂
One month til holiday craft show season is here! My friend Debbie and I have been collaborating on some items for upcoming shows! We are striving to upcycle the coolest fabrics into zippered pouches and totes!
I try to schedule out my week with each day with a task.
Mondays are cutting days. I spend my day cutting out bags and getting them ready for sewing.
Tuesday and Wednesdays are for sewing. I try and sew up all the bags I had cut out on Monday. Sometimes I can make up to 10 a day depending on which bag style has been cut out. After 10 years of making my bags, I don’t need to follow a pattern and have an assembly line style of doing the work.
Thursdays are for computer design work. I spend the day working on my sewing pattern designs. I have 12 patterns and will be redoing the cover images for all of these and tweaking the instructions.
Friday! is my fun day! I play around with new ideas for bags or practice sewing clothing. I have bought a Singer Professional 5 serger/coverstitch machine. This thing is the bomb! A smooth running machine that can do it all. I am having fun with it. I will post my clothing items for sale on my second etsy page. http://www.etsy.com/shop/myfavoritefrock
