WOW!!!!

I can’t believe that it’s 2014 already! Even though the time flew last year, I am excited about what’s to come of 2014 for me. I am changing my business name to Janice Serilla Design. My brands will be of course Mackerilla for my Mackerilla brand sewing patterns and bags. Santa Cruz Bagworks for my new high end bag designs. Still in the works but I do have my SCBW large tote available.

Santa Cruz Bagworks Large tote in Waxed Canvas and Leather.

Contact me if your interested in one of these babies! They retail for $180 and is a great everyday carryall.Β  I love this design! Working on new designs after I update all my Mackerilla Sewing Patterns.

Next is Gimpy Pets of course with all my pet related products. I will be hopefully a vendor in the upcoming Spring Dog event. I donate a percentage of my sales to senior and disabled pets in need.

Then last is Hannula & Dest. My collaberation with Debbie Graves Design. We have our cool apron designs and upcycled homeware items.

I am back in action sewing! It’s been a long weary year. We had a close friend who recently passed away from fighting a rare genetic cancer.

I put my business on the back burner as well as all his other friends had to help him with all his needs for the past 8 months. We all wanted to spend as much quality time with him before he left for a better place. He now is no longer in pain and I am sure is watching over us.

So I apologize for not being around much on this blog. I have started a few new designs to be made into new sewing patterns. Will be cutting and sewing and perfecting, then creating more patterns.

Are you still looking for ideas for gifts? Are you crafty? Can you Sew?

Well homemade gifts are always fun for me! I like to make simple gifts for friends, neighbors, postman, favorite shop owners, etc……………
Something like a nice Santa or Snowman adorned cookie bag, stocking or handpainted tin or a box and fill with your favorite cookies.

Simple gifts that can be used every day like soaps, oven mitts, knitted caps are always a daily reminder to the gift receiver of how wonderful you are! πŸ˜‰

Most of my Mackerilla sewing patterns are pretty easy to make. So you could make up some wine totes and journal bags? Or make up some of my Tote styles and give them to your people on your holiday list. Their is still lots of time to make these items and more! πŸ™‚

For other Mackerilla Bag designs, check out my ETSY page for what Sewing Patterns are available! Also I have some of my little zip pouches , kids caps and more up for sale!

Also you can contact me and see what else I have. I have loads of totes in many sizes available that I have not posted online. Price ranging from $34-$58

New Site to sell stuff on!

crafts, creative, DIY

I was asked to join in on the site ipublicate and sell my sewing patterns.

Their site is all about hot to do or learn everything fun and creative!

I just listed my instructional sewing patterns on it today. It’s kind of like an ETSY site but more of an online resource where all people, regardless of status, location, or education can share their unique areas of expertise for profit in multiple formats with those who seek it while keeping all rights to their ideas and materials. iPublicate is also a marketplace in which seekers of knowledge can peruse and purchase information from it’s original source.
Check them out!

Hot off the press!
