I've Been Busy Creating New Etsy Items....

For the past few days I've been busy creating some items for my Etsy shop. After making a teacup pincushion for a friend's birthday I decided to make some to sell. I've been scouring the flee markets for some wonderful teacups and other unique items to transform. Wouldn't these be cute in a sewing room?
Here's a close up of the buttons and the pins that I have embellished with charms. Head on over to my Etsy and you can see more of the detail....
Every pincushion comes with a matching handmade gift bag. It's already to give to someone special.... The gift bag has a wonderful poem someone gave me about sewing... I have searched for some cute sayings about sewing, and i haven't found many. If you have one you would like to share with me, please do I would love to start a collection.

This would be the perfect gift for an expectant mother or grandmother who loves to sew. This shoe is just so precious.

If you love to sew and love shoes... how perfect is this! A wonderful old vase has a new found life, as a cherished pincushion for some who loves the art of sewing... I love pincushions and I love turning something that has an ordinary purpose into a gift for someone to treasure. Pincushions remind me of when I was young and my mom teaching me to sew at the age of 10. Sewing has been a love of mine over the years. If you don't sew, I encourage you to start with a small project. Aprons are a wonderful first time project and they have become quite popular. There are many patterns for aprons and they now longer look like the aprons that your grandmother wore. You will be amazed at what you can make and the satisfaction it will bring you when you have finished your new "Creation From the Heart"! "Teach your child a craft and it will be a gift they will have forever"...
