new in the shop: yellow chick

The leaves have appeared on the trees overnight, so I think spring is finally here! I have been working up a storm on a million spring stuffed animals. You can find this little spring chicken in the shop now!

a flower afghan

This blanket was a special present for my Ma, who likes black-eyed susans (which is a super awesome name for a flower).flowerblanket

I have a couple more crochet projects in mind, but I might start a little scrap granny square quilt too, to use up some of my leftover bits.


new in the shop: little lion

A yellow lion with a luscious grey mane is in the shop now! He has a fancy yellow and grey pattern on his back. They look like leaves to me, but the lion would probably be happier if they were antelopes or something. Maybe next time, buddy.

a t-shirt quilt

I think the key to having fun while making a tshirt quilt is to be ok that it might not be exactly perfect. They’re tshirts. You wore them and washed them. They have (most likely) never been ironed before. All the designs might be different sizes, or shirts might be different materials. Oh well, it will be absolutely perfect for a picnic outside under a tree. tshirtquilt1

These were tshirts from our time in college. I had to get a little creative to fit the shirts in the right number of squares, so a couple of the squares are combos. This one has the black fabric from our graduation gowns, that I was incredibly scared to iron because it was made from recycled bottles or something like that, and I was convinced it was going to melt. I also needed one more square, so we made a combo square with tshirts from the first places we worked after college.

I’ve been saving these shirts for forever to make this, so I’m happy its finally done, and looks good too! Now I want to make another one!tshirtquilt3


new in the shop: guitar cards

For some reason lately, I feel like I could learn to play the guitar. I am pretty terrible at most musical things, so I could be completely wrong here. But I know you can get 1/2 sized guitars, which would be good for me. And I am fairly good at memorizing patterns, so I feel like it is something I could learn. I just think it would be fun to sit in the backyard in the evening and play the guitar (provided someone tunes it for me). So some of my proceeds from my shops will be going into my future guitar fund.

In honor of my recent google search history, a guitar card is new in the shop this week!guitar


new in the shop: cows

A pair of cute cows are new in the shop this week! Farm animals are the best. I drew these out a few months ago, so I’m glad they could finally come to life. Really enjoy the black and white cow’s nose bling.

photo shoot

I set up to do a little photo shoot this morning, and decided to also try to take some of those artsy tool still-life photos for my shop pages. I did a bit of sprucing up on my Etsy About pages if you want to check them out here and here!

a new dress

Well looky here. Just last week, this was a pile of fabric. Now it is a dress. I am sure it is very pleased with its transformation. I haven’t tried it on yet, but it looks pretty good on the hanger. bluedress2

It has some elastic on the sleeves and on the back at the waist to add some shape.bluedress3

I had this cool gold button picked out, but I accidentally made the button loop too small. Good thing I had a back-up button ready.bluedress4

I hand stitched the hem up. It actually didn’t take as long as I thought it would, and made me feel like I was living in a little house on a prairie.bluedress

I’m already on the hunt for my next pattern, so let me know if you see anything awesome!


new in the shop: flower girls

These cards blend my love of drawing with my inner hair stylist. I really enjoyed using the different stitches to make the hair textures. Find them now in the shop!

Now I just need to find a flower crown that I can wear around all day.
