a few more gift ideas

November 21, 2011

I was pretty productive last week!  I finally got to try Keyka Lou's newest pattern, the zip pocket pouch pattern and I LOVE it!!!  And it's still on sale until the 27th, can't beat that!

Here is the medium size:

And here is the tall version:

As you can see, both will easily hold an iphone with room to spare.  I love the zipper pocket!  I am always so happy with things made from Michelle's patterns.

I also had a custom order for some art folios and made a couple extra.  If you haven't seen Virginia's shop, you are really missing out!!  Her patterns are fantastic and the art folio is, by far, the most popular item that I have ever sold in my shop!  If I made 100 of these suckers, I would still have requests for more.  They really are useful and are they are always my go to gift for birthday parties.

All of these goodies are in the shop if you don't feel like making some yourself!  :)

holiday sewing motivation

November 15, 2011

I know I have been MIA for the last few weeks.  Some long lasting illness is slowly making it's way through my family.  First, the girls were sick, then Doug and now it has finally worked it's way around to me.

I wanted to share something fun with you all though!  Michelle from Keyka Lou is having a pattern sale!!!  Right now all of her patterns are on sale for $5!!  If you haven't tried one of her patterns, now is the time!  She is my favorite go to pattern designer!  Her patterns are all VERY well written, most can be made with very little fabric, and they are all super cute!  She has almost 40 patterns now so there is sure to be something that will be perfect for everyone on your list this year.

Some of my favorites for cute little handmade gifts are:

keychain clutch pattern

zip clutches pattern
basic wallet pattern

The basic wallet fits my iphone so it could double as a phone case!  There are so many more adorable patterns that would make great holiday gifts.  The new zip pocket pouch pattern is adorable and would make a great gift card holder!

So head over to Keyka Lou and snap up some patterns!  The sale ends on Nov. 27th.  Make sure you check out Michelle's blog too, she has so many great tips and tricks on there!!!
