We’ve had a busy summer so I haven’t done much with this site since right before we moved in July. However, I’ve moved my store to a Facebook page (you can get to it by clicking the “Shop” link on this page).

I covered simple and cute fairly easily when I put together the first hats using scrap fabric and some of my husband’s old dress shirts. One was white with orange plaid on the reverse, and the other was blue/green floral with blue dots on the reverse.
I had four more lunch bags cut out for a while now, and I finally got around to sewing them up today. I ended up making three of them the non-raggedy style just for kicks and I really like them!
