some new goods on Etsy

It’s been a busy couple of weeks-  a little summertime fun but mostly sewing and participating in a few local outdoor markets. I decided to make a few crib-sized patchwork quilts, manageable in size and fun to put together. As you can see, it’s all about random, kitschy color combos this summer- but organized within a theme- such as ‘pink’ in this baby quilt. They’re all in my Etsy shop.

‘Boy’ fabrics and colors here…

Then back to pink, but with a red binding. I do so love pink and red together.

I’ve been making patchwork picnic blankets too. This one (below) is made with 10 inch squares and no theme what-so-ever, just scraps. The top (as you can see) is pieced but the back is a single piece of fabric sewn to the front in pillowcase style (right sides together, stitch around all edges leaving a 15 inch or so opening to pull the whole thing right side out again). Turn the whole thing right side out, iron flat and top stitch the edges. No batting, no quilting. The size of this one is 54 inches by 86 inches- a little longer than a standard picnic table size. Great as a picnic blanket, or throw too.

And the ever-so-handy 2 in 1, reversible, half aprons for cooking, entertaining, gardening, working or anything else you might need to look cute for. All the goods shown here are listed on Etsy.

It’s a miracle- I finally got a few aprons, and one skirt (that’s all I’ve got) listed on Etsy. I’ve literally been at it all day.
I’m not feeling very productive, no matter how hard I seem to try with my every-day morning resolutions, I only ever get a few tasks fully accomplished. Perhaps I need to scale the list back.
I keep getting side-tracked, interrupted. I suppose I should be happy I check at least one thing off that wretched list today.

Anywho- I love this apron pattern. It’s so darn flattering and girly. The reversible apron is so handy, and something about having two sides makes it feel sturdy… with an insurance policy. I made these for the Beehive Bazaar last month- I only have this one and one other like it left. I love the bubble gum pink trim, with the black and white Alexander Henry fabric.
