Cool Cats

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.

  1. I am trying to make something new for my etsy each week. It's hard with all the birthday crown orders to get time to make new stuff, but with Christmas right away the corner I'm doing my best!

  2. I am a retired nurse and spent the last 18 yrs. I worked at the Ohio Veterans Home. These walker bags are wonderful. The ability to be able to carry items with them means so much to someone that has to use a walker. I know first hand they give the residents more of a feeling of being independent . Great product you are making, the bags mean so much to a person that has to keep both hands on the walker.
