This photo I took last week gave me inspiration to make the zippered pouch seen below.
I had been very busy this weekend. Making items. Doing little photo shoots. I find taking photos very fun. I like searching through my fabric stash and using them as back drops. Then I search through my supplies to find props. Sometimes the pairings are quite by accident. I like those happy accidents.
I made a few of these mason jar pin cushions too. I actually cut into my most favorite flour sack fabric. I love the red and blue combo. And the flower print is so dainty and feminine.
I have also been busy setting up a Paypal account which lead to setting up an Etsy account. I thought I would join all the selling fun! My husband helped me come up with a store name. We chose "The Cherry Stem". This is an inside joke between us now. One early evening we went to get some ice cream. I stole his cherry off his sundae when he made a bet with me. He told me that he didn't think I could tie the cherry stem in a knot with my tongue, and if I did accomplish the task then we would buy my new sewing machine the next day. (What budget?) A whole eaten sundae later the 1/2 inch cherry stem was tied in a knot. And to make the story even better the knot was shaped like a heart.
So if you have a spare minute go check my Etsy shop out!
