It's shameless commerce Tuesday, and I'm happy to say that I've been busily working on MORE custom orders! So today I'm featuring CUSTOM walker bags. http://www.etsy.com/listing/73698420/walker-bag-custom-made-choose-your-theme?ref=pr_shop. These bags are pretty and practical, and would be a perfect gift for someone who needs to use a walker for mobility.
I just had to share these fun cat fabrics, purchased at one of my local quilt shops, The Quilted Kitty: www.thequiltedkitty.com. These fabrics will be used to create a custom walker bag for an 86-year-old cat lover. Her daughter shopped online for the fabric, and I ran to the store after work to pick it up "in person." The cool cats are from Timeless Treasures Fabrics, Inc. The tone-on-tone Meow fabric is from the "Where's the Cat?" line designed for Exclusively Quilters. I chose the gold tone-on-tone for an accent strip, and the fun striped buttons from Doodlebug Design Inc. I can't wait to get started on this fun project!
I also have a ladybug walker bag in the planning / collaborating stages. I hit the mother lode searching for ladybug fabrics at http://www.bugfabric.com/ladybugs.htm. Who knew???!!!??? It's a bit overwhelming! (I still like Wendy Slotboom's Breeze fabric collection which has a smattering of ladybugs hiding among colorful flowers and leaves.) http://www.etsy.com/listing/74896862/destash-fabrics-wendy-slotboom-breeze
I've also been busy making more baby blankets and baby quilts. I went on a major shopping spree this weekend to stock up on minky and plush fabrics for an ultra soft and cuddly backing for the blankets. These fabrics are irresistibly soft, but a bit tricky to sew. The walking foot is my friend!!
I plan to list at least one new baby blanket each week until the end of November. I have four cut out and pin-basted. The day job just cuts into my sewing time! So check out that section of my store if you or someone you know has a baby on the way (or coming to visit). You're bound to find something new: http://www.etsy.com/shop/pasqueflower?section_id=8079641.
