Oh Fabric, How I LOVE You!

Pin It
Listening to Pandora, doing some more embroidered towels for the Scroogefest and reading fabric blogs. My fav is and right now she's blogging about Quilt Market 2010 which just finished up in Houston, TX. (And where I'll be headed next fall... WOOT!!) One of her recent posts was on Michael Miller Fabrics, Inc... of which I am a big fan. There are some cute retro prints.. my fav so far being the 60's inspired prints starting at the third picture on this post . Maybe I'll get my hands on some of these and make some ridiculously cute bags, and such for spring!!

More and more I'm wanting to jump right in and open a bricks & mortar shop like, NOW. Unfortunately, though, that is not in the works at the moment and I'll be sticking to the Internet for a bit. Carrying fabric and handbag accessories could be in the future for SoChick... with Handbags and Embroidery always being at the forefront of the business. :-) Just thinking out loud for now.

... break for thread change...

...break for dancing around the kitchen with my little chickies (Pandora's playing good stuff today)...

I also like the tattoo prints from Michael Miller which are at the bottom of the above mentioned post... oh and the sugar skulls... all of which have the wheels in my brain in motion.

...skipping the Britney song on Pandora...

I think its safe to say I love most everything Michael Miller.

Heading to lunch in a bit with my kids, Dad and stepmom, for Veteran's Day, so I'm going to get back to work now!

Happy Veteran's Day!

Rainy Day

Pin It
I've gotten a lot done today so I'm taking a break to blog some pictures of what I've been up to while enjoying a nice cup of coffee.. yum... gotta have the caffiene fix to get me through another night of sewing. I have a feeling its going to be like this through Christmas! (Woo Hoo! Busy=Good for Business)

Here is the flag I did for my older daughter's Girl Scout troop. Basically I just added the lettering... it turned out so nice, i'm very pleased:

And here is just a sneak peek of the awesome hardware on a custom Diaper Bag I'm finishing up... I will post pictures of the actual bag after it is delivered.
These quick-release hooks on the bag straps allow this bag to be used as a messenger or as a back-pack. They are so great, I love them!

I really love adding hardware and such to bags, it gives them a polished and professional look and just brings the whole bag up a notch. A lot of the newer bags I will be putting on SoChick!'s website will feature metal hardware.

Thats about it for now... off to start dinner then back to the sewing table!
