A peek inside my studio

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

This weekend, while strolling through the Etsy forums, I happened upon a post calling for studio photographs. I had a blast peeking inside dozens of studios and was overcome with the urge to rearrange mine!

I snapped some photos this afternoon...to share with you.

Opportunity abounds

Well, I did it! To Isabel's spring wardrobe, I have added three pairs of handmade capris and a floppy sun hat. The weather here in Virginia is still a little chilly, so I paired the capris with a ruffle tank and denim jacket---for a winning combo that fetched my sweet girl loads of compliments from friends and strangers alike.

Now, if only she would stand still long enough for me to get a good photo!

Maybe I should introduce a line of toddler clothing and accessories...what do you think?

Inspired by LOVE

Monday, March 15, 2010

Inspiration is a lovely thing and I have been inspired by the order of Amy Butler “LOVE” fabric which recently arrived on my stoop. Today, I have set aside some time to deviate from what I do well---sewing diaper bags and the like---to make clothing.

More specifically, I want to sew a spring wardrobe for my sweet Isabel.

In yet another uncharacteristic move, I have purchased two patterns from which I hope to produce said clothing. Historically, patterns and I do not get along. I am not sure why but I imagine, it is somehow connected to the fact that I have no sense of direction and a distain for maps. It would be fair to say, I prefer the road less traveled.

In any event, I shall give it a whirl and will keep you updated on my progress as I venture into unchartered territory with nothing more than a few dozen bolts of beautiful fabric and a couple of Sew Easy patterns.

Wish me luck!
