You might remember all my adventures in making mittens from fulled wool sweaters. I’ve pared down my wool collections to just cashmere (and some other wools to use under the suede palms) and come up with a few more pairs of cashmere mittens for this year’s craft shows. These mittens are made with suede palms… Continue reading More Cashmere Mittens!
I’ve been working on these new cross-body bags for months among the other parts of my life. I had the idea of creating textural crazy-patchwork bag flaps and then decorating on top of the patchwork. Remember the glass beads and embroidery thread I posted about? I happily put those to use. Each bag flap is… Continue reading Newest Cross-Body Bags!

It’s listed on my Shows page as well. Their Facebook Page likely will start posting updates later in the summer. But check it out now,… Continue reading Variety of Projects to Show You!

Recently I finally sat down to make a pattern (after studying the construction… Continue reading Upcycled Silk Jewelry Bags
I just finished a three-day weekend of my first big (translation: pricier-booth-rental-but-thousands-of-visitors-coming-through) craft show! I was a vendor at the Dalplex Christmas Craft Market. It was a lot of fun having a booth space (8 ft. by 10 ft.) in which to spread out my products. I had a general layout idea in my head,… Continue reading Dalplex Christmas Craft Market – My First Big Craft Show!
