I went to a shop recently that sells things to support a local jail (plus also selling furniture that is made by some of the inmates). Its an awesome shop. It has handmade crafts, clothes, and furniture, plus jam and pies and cakes, and second hand things like books and clothes, and toys…
I found some patterns, oh, I certainly did! They had a small package of assorted patterns which I paid $3 for. Some of them I will use for my daughters.
And then there was a box of new patterns without their envelopes, for only 50c each! It was hard to tell the fit of some of the patterns because the photo/drawing was gone. But I picked out what I thought would be handy in the future. Im very much contemplating the jacket for myself.. but I’m sure if I do, it will be spring by the time its done.
This pattern was a very happy find. I have a friend who has a new precious daughter, and in asking her what she would like me to make.. she said a poncho! I was going to draft the pattern, but finding this pattern will mean I don’t have to :)
And our last, but certainly not least purchase was this jewellery box. It hit my daughters eye from across the room the minute she walked in and I had 2-minute reminders about it the whole time we were there. At $3, I decided it was a purchase we could make!
I may have failed to mention recently that I have added cloth wipes to my Etsy store!
A few years ago, I used to make and sell them on eBay, but family commitments meant I no longer had the time. They were very popular, and I would even get emailed to make special orders. I still now, get friends asking me whether I can make them some cloth wipes.
Here are the ones I have up on my store at the moment; just click the picture to get taken through to the listing :)
A while ago, I made up a tutorial on how to make cloth wipes. They are very simple to make, so if you find yourself handy with the overlocker…
The sewing hasn’t stop here at the moment!
Ive put up more bibs in my Etsy store, this time bandana bibs!
They were much quicker to sew up, and are so cute.
Click on the pictures to go through to the listings :)
Just finished off a few more bibs ready for my Etsy store.
I absolutely love these fabrics and the prints. I had a moment where I wondered if my nearly 4-year old could resume wearing a bib just because I love it so much (yes, it does fit her!), but remembered she hasnt worn one for at least a year!!
I bought a little bias binding maker a while ago, thinking I would love it when I used it.
And right I was! The thing is awesome!
So I’ve made a very long amount of bias binding, ready for some more bibs in my Etsy store!
Well, I did it, I opened up my Etsy store!
I have a grand total of 2 listings now!
And more to come in the coming weeks!
Check out my store, Oak Tag Designs, to see the very cool bibs and cloth wipes ready to ship :)
To my Etsy store!
Can you guess what they are?
Not long to go…
