still talking about mittens…

But I swear it’s the last post for awhile ‘k??!

sewing up mittens!

I finally got around sewing those 8 pairs of mittens! It’s more difficult these weeks to get to my sewing machine since Rachel is not going to the babysitter (they are sick) that means I get more hugs and kisses though… 🙂

Not bad 🙂 I was pretty low on mittens stock on my Etsy (yeah I know that I’m low on cosmetic cases too…. and doggies… and…) Should be good for awhile 🙂



New necktie bags!

I’ve been busy, and I finally sewn all the necktie bags I had cut!

As usual, they are made from men’s suit pants, shirts and neckties 🙂
these are probably going in a shop in Jonquière as a Lady asked to have my stuff over there!

All the bags have the pant’s pockets at the back, and I am happy because I found a way to use one pant to make 2 bags! So there is even less waste!

Now, on to make 2 special orders….

Voilà, j’ai été productive cette semaine et j’ai cousu les 5 sacs cravate que j’avais taillés! Les 3 premiers iront probablement dans une boutique à Jonquière vu qu’une gentille propriétaire m’a demandé d’avoir de mes articles dans sa boutique! le dernier sac bleu est déjà dans ma boutique 😉 Tous les sacs ont les poches de pantalon au dos.

A little overview of what I’ve sewn for the last couple of weeks!

First I made a new old school bag using vintage fabric and wool pants, listing here.

I also made a new pencil or cosmetic pouch (listing here) Using the same fabric and pants. I played a little with backgrounds for the pictures for the shop and I’m not completely satisfied with them so I might redo these.

Tomorrow will be kind of a crazy day! We’ll have to go school furniture, shoes and grocery shopping and my in-laws will be surely coming over for supper and to see my son’s last soccer game before his tournament!
