I seem to be making a lot of personal and gift projects these past few months!  I have some craft show projects on the go, too, such as in the last photo of this post (and I’ll post more photos as those projects are finished); but making personal projects has been fulfilling, too. First up… Continue reading Personal Sewing and Knitting Projects Again!

Updating With Home Projects

Hello!  Long time, no hear; I know.  For me, craftwise, 2016 was somewhat of a writeoff.  I made the decision back in May that I would not be participating in craft shows last year.  I needed to tend to some family and personal matters and just didn’t have the steam to prepare for shows for… Continue reading Updating With Home Projects

Thrifted Batik Fabrics

Three years ago, I wrote about making a bunch of reversible cross-body cotton batik bags to start selling.  You see, the year before that, I had stumbled upon an unbelievable deal on yardage of cotton batik fabric ($2.99 USD/yard) while visiting a surplus discount store in the States.  I went nuts picking out pieces of… Continue reading Thrifted Batik Fabrics

Colleen Sharpe Bags Go International! :D

My mother was here visiting me from the States last fall.  I gave her a bunch of bags to take home with her, as she had offered to try to sell some of them in her region of the world.  A few months ago she sent me this photo of a happy-looking customer holding her… Continue reading Colleen Sharpe Bags Go International! 😀

Home Decor Projects

Last night, while browsing Instagram (and discovering that one of my favourite craft bloggers started following my account – fangirl moment!!!), I learned that my very favourite vintage cotton floral sheets were made by Wabasso in Canada under the product name Marvel Press.  I then spent hours obsessing over finding every Wabasso Marvel Press sheet pattern… Continue reading Home Decor Projects

Upcycled Silk Jewelry Bags

A fellow artisan asked me awhile ago if I could make some travel jewelry bags for her to give as gifts.  I had made one once, and it didn’t quite come out as I’d hoped.  But I told her I would try.  Recently I finally sat down to make a pattern (after studying the construction… Continue reading Upcycled Silk Jewelry Bags
