Inventory reduction SALE- Still going on in my Artfire shop

Although the sale has ended in my Etsy shop. I have extended it over to my Artfire shop! Why you ask? Well easy really, this saves me money since Artfire does not charge for each listingof these great little zips, therefore letting me pass those savings onto you. So plan ahead for the holiday gift giving and head on over to my Artfire shop. BTW- shipping is also cheaper on Artfire too.

Hedgehog time- appliques and embroidery

Lately, one of a kind items have been on my mind. I love all the little critters out there in the handmade world, so I did an alchemy request for some felt applique owls and hedgehogs. I provided pictures to both of the bids I accepted. Zebra Dots on Etsy was the first to finish and send the appliques. Thank you ZD!!! Here is the finished product- little hedgehog on linen. Adorable and now available in my shop. I have more coming from my other bid too, so I am really excited to see these creations.

So what is the embroidery all about? Well, when I was a little girl I loved to embroidery anything I could get my hands on. That feeling is coming back, therefore in the weeks to come I hope to have several one of a kind embroidery pouches and cases in my shop. Currently working on the owl pouch with more stitching for added unique look. Hopefully will have it listed in my shop, if I am not to busy with the two wholesale orders that are on the cutting table right now!!

Sale Prep!

This happens to be one of the few times that I have had a sale and I am actually prepared! Unfortunately that is mainly due to the low sales in my Etsy shop the past few weeks. Giving me more time to start cutting and sewing up the pouches! NOW come on and lets see them SOLD!!!
I think I have a great selection and a wonderful way to save $$$ for gift giving this year!

INVENTORY REDUCTION SALE going on NOW while supplies last

Just so tired at looking at some of my fabrics, so there are alot of older fabrics on sale but also some of my new collections. I needed to reduce my inventory and was really planning on a sale at the end of the month. But a large wholesale order came in and the buyer really would like the items by mid-September so that pushed my BIG inventory reduction sale up a week. Here are just a few of the many items marked down--- some up to 50% off!

Creative sewing Retreat and one of a kind items

So my creative sewing retreat was wonderful but far too short! A few days is just not long enough to really get the inspirational juices flowing. When I do it again, I think I might aim for 5+ days. Also try to work it out to be during the school year, since teenage daughters can really be a distraction.

I have wanted to start a section within my shop that was devoted to "one of a kind" , special, and unique items. It is always fun to just let your eyes catch on a few fabrics that just might be great together. I was able to come up with over 12 new and unique creations- please take a look when you get a chance. I hope that I am able to always have a few available in my shop. It is difficult to keep one of a kind items in stock, since each one takes so much time just to match, create, make and list. They are fun when the mind gets bored with the same old style and fabrics.

That I hope to have done by Monday hahaha!! Two of them are custom order purse organizers that will be done by Monday but the rest..... well I can hope. Four new purse organizers and four new one of a kind flat bottom zipper pouches. Patchwork ones to be exact. I am hoping to sell the remaining handbags that are currently on sale, so that I may create a new section of "OOAK items". These are always fun and let me be super creative putting color combos fabrics together.

Please note : I will be on a Creative Sewing Retreat starting next Tuesday August 11th, 2009. My Etsy Shop will be closed for a few days but No Worries-All purchases made before then will be shipped! I will have access to my email so please feel free to contact me. Many new items will be listed upon my return. I will keep my Artfire shop open since the traffic level is always lower.
