Bluebird Grid Paper Journal

I have been wanting to put together my own design for these journal covers for so long! Finally got it worked out and I am so happy! Check them out in my shop here.

Each one comes complete with a grid paper composition-style notebook which can be replaced when the pages are filled. Just slip in a fresh notebook and you are good to go! These would work great not only as a journal but also as a sketchbook or for taking notes.

Hope I am not the only notebook crazy person out there! Totally using one of these for my design sketchbook.

Random Project List

October 6, 2017

I have been in a bit of a productivity funk. Slowly chipping away at some things, but occasionally I hit a wall and need the boost of finishing a project. Does anyone else get jazzed by finishing things? Oh man, I LOVE it.

So right now here are the projects I have on-the-go. Perhaps chronicling them will create a creative super-charged vortex of finishing. We can only hope.

1. New Product Line Development

Journal Cover

I am working out the final details, well actually I think I worked them all out today, for some fabric journal covers for composition books. These will be ready in time for holiday shopping.

Next Steps: Get to cracking on assembly line production. Which isn’t nearly as fun as research and development. But still pretty fun.

2. Large Hexagon Quilt

Large Hexigon Quilt

I started this one earlier this summer. I have a number of quilt tops that need to be turned into quilts, but somehow I just keep starting new tops. Because that is the funnest. This one is made from huge hexagons and constructed from vintage sheets. Sewing together another row is my reward for finishing a specific task.

Next Steps: Keep piecing in-between other projects.

3. Small Hexagon Quilt

Small Hexagon Quilt

This one I started YEARS ago to use in my bedroom at our old house. It was a great hand-piecing project that I would pick up from time to time and work on. This summer I decided to call it good, put some borders on it, and voila! Another finished top. (I may have a finished top problem.)  

Next Steps: Try out a quilting design on the sample I finished today. Then get that baby quilted!

4. Sock Knitting Pattern

Sock Pattern

This project sat dormant for a bit after I worked out my color choices and colorwork charts. Now I am working up two sample socks to double check the pattern instructions. I REALLY have to be in the mood to work on this because I have to take notes and count and stuff. I am sure I will get back to it when the weather cools down.

Next Steps: Finish up sock #2. Fill in pattern details as needed and get a charting software.

5. Other Knitting Patterns

I have two other patterns that are pretty nearly complete.

Next Steps: Work on graphic layout options. Call for test knitters.

I think that is enough to focus on for now. Let’s see if motivation strikes now that it is all formalized in writing… I will keep you posted!

Upcycled Denim Keychains on ETSY

August 29, 2017

Can there be even more new items in the shop? The answer is YES!

This time I am sharing with you my keychains!

Upcycled Denim Keychain on ETSY

I have been making these for a number of years, for my own use, as gifts, and to sell in some local shops and at in-person shows. I finally decided to list them on Etsy as well.  I love that they are so sturdy and hold up to lots of use.

The denim strap functions as a wristlet so you can keep your keys handy when you hands are full. And I love using the lobster clasp to clip them to my bag so they don’t get stuck in the bottom!

I have pieced the strap from multiple colors of upcycled denim jeans, reinforced them with strong interfacing, and then lined them with fun, colorful prints.

Check out the listings for more information, but please note I am currently offering these with FREE SHIPPING IN THE USA! 

Upcycled Denim Change Purse on ETSY

August 22, 2017

Back with another fun addition to the shop! This time I put together a handy multi-purpose zipper pouch.  

Change Purse on Etsy

First of all they are so small and cute! And since I have been using one I have found many uses for it, beyond the traditional change purse.

It is great as a mini-wallet or loyalty card holder. If you only want to carry your license and a card or two it is great! Or keep those pesky loyalty cards out of your overstuffed wallet and in their own little bag.

I have found it to be perfect for knitting notions, especially the square post-it notes or stitch markers. And maybe you will come up with even more!

Each bag is constructed with multiple shades of upcycled denim jeans. It is topped with a black nylon zipper and lined with a super cute blue bird print.

So pop over and give the listing a look! These are a great, affordable gift, stocking stuffer, or purse staple!
