Art Market and Beehive Bazaar This weekend!!!!

I'll just say I'm thankful for all my home sewers that help me out so that I can have enough inventory to do all these shows. If I had to sew everything myself there would be only 10 purses. I do sew all the first ones myself so I can see how they turn out though.
I'm also thankful for my kids that are All so different and make me laugh! And for my wonderful sexy husband!!!!
Asia is home for Thanksgiving so it was her turn to model new purses.
I'll post the times for both these shows on Monday. They start Thursday and go until Sat. Two of my favorite shows!!!!

love my job

I'm loving all these vintage, cut velvet and chenille's that I get to play with. I just received a package from Belgium yesterday full of vintage Belgium table cloths... so fabulous! They should get sewn up soon because I want to make something with them so bad.

More ruffles

I'm in a gift show this weekend in Hyrum Friday Nov.13th 5:00-8;00pm and Nov 14th 11:00-8:pm.35 North 400 West . There are some very talented artist there! It's at Leona's house who makes these amazing glass bowls and serving dishes in her kiln, the colors are amazing! so so beautiful and unique. I always end up buying one of her pieces.Her home is a restored seminary building, it's worth it just to see her home.There's going to be really unique jewelry, aprons, fiber arts, stainglass food and more!
O.k. as far as the shirts easy! Get one of your plain shirts and and cut fabric whatever width you like, knit works best because it doesn't fray. and just gather it around the collar of your shirt! Great way to embellish for layering. The cardigan I made, but you can just go get a plain one and rip some fabric and gather it around the lapels. Fun simple and a great way to revamp ( I love that word!) you're clothes.

Loving ruffles and gathers

I'm loving making all these flowers and ruffles... the only problem is they look the best done with silk and velvets. So then they are more expensive. I always try to keep my purses affordable, by recycling fabric or hand dyeing laces and velvets, But these just take a lot of time. Especially when I have to hand sew on rhinestones and pearls. I never use glue! But I do like the look of the shabby roses. If you love these let me know because I won't be making a ton. I just have so many other projects that need to get done.
And it's been really cool to meet so many of you at shows! People show up wearing purses I made a long time ago and it's like seeing an old friend.

I haven't really done such a commercial type boutique, so we'll see how my vintage/ hand sewn things go.

I have so much new vintage velvets and trims in that I start one project then the mail comes with new fabric , so I get excited about that project.... yes there are half done projects on all my tables! I should post a picture... I always see these beautiful craft rooms on blogs, everything organized by color, clean and tidy, and mine has never looked that way!! It's a little chaotic but I know where everything is.
