We had a hard winter here in Massachusetts. Over 100 inches of snow that never seemed to melt plus bitter cold days. The kids racked up more than a week of snow days! Between the snow days, ice dams, shoveling, and shivering, I didn’t get much sewing done. I did manage to make some scarves and hipster cross-body bags.
Now, Spring is here, and I have lots of projects in the works. I have seven messenger bags cut out and ready for sewing!

I am gearing up for the holiday season, and there is so much I have planned. I just finished these wallets and am working on snack bag sets.

Over the summer, I made a picnic roll for a friend’s wedding. There are four sets of bamboo utensils and four cloth napkins. I am thinking of incorporating the picnic rolls into my line for the summer. I modified the pattern from a silverware jellyroll!

I had a fun opportunity to make my friend a tutu for the Cupid Undie’s Run at Fenway Park. I based it loosely on the tutu worn by Carrie in the opening credits of “Sex and the City.” This one is in red, pink, and white and is a shorter than the one in the show. I might make one for myself in neutral colors like Carrie’s. Then, I will have to find somewhere fun to wear it! Several a few of my running friends also want tutus for their upcoming races!
Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away. Here is a gallery of gift ideas from my Etsy store.
