Saturday Pattern Sharing 1/29/11

To change things up a little today, I have a no-sew project!  The link isn’t a step by step tutorial or pattern but more a platform for your own creativity.  All you need is some felt, scissors and a glue gun!

Personally I’d love to start off making one a touch smaller and less intricate.  Big girl received a small herd of Littlest Pet Shop toys for Christmas so this would be a perfect project for us.  Now if only I could find the time…

A big thanks to Kim at A girl and a glue gun for this adorable Littlest Pet Shop Felt Activity Mat!

Saturday’s Pattern Sharing 1/22/11

Valentine’s Day is hurdling towards us quickly so it’s the perfect time to start working on (if you’re not already!) some cute ideas for the favorite people in your life.

I try to do little crafts that are quick to put together and can be stashed away to be pulled out for future use.  Those requirements makes these Valentine Pins from the purl bee a perfect item to throw on my to-do list.

Happy sewing!

Ringin’ In the New Year

Whew!  I had to dust off the cobwebs just to get a post started around here.  😉  My apologies for such an absence!

Baby girl decided to make her way into the world shortly after midnight on New Year’s Eve, creating some chaos in the Stitch To Stitch household.  I was in the midst of reorganizing my newly painted sewing room when my water broke.  With a breech (bottom down instead of up) baby this meant an immediate trip–well, as fast as our family can get packed, the 4 year old dropped off at friends and then across town–to the hospital for an emergency c-section.

Since then we’ve dealt with some unexpected complications and are just trying to settle into *some* sort of normalcy.  So for now, the addition of new items into the shop has been halted.  None of the previous listings were removed but instead shipping times have been extended to accommodate my new work schedule.  Or lack thereof.  If you are interested in having a custom order done please contact me to work out details.

Albeit a little late, Happy New Year’s to all!
