Hello! I hope you all had a great weekend. I was able to hit some garage sales this weekend--which is fun, fun, fun!
I have a drawer in my craftroom that is full of the patterns I have designed over the last 15 years or so, and I felt like making a doll--it's been a while--so I dug around and ran across a pattern for a chubby cute teddy bear and decided to make one up. Once I got it all stitched up, I was trying to decide how to decorate it up---and a vision of the lovely Junie Moon popped into my head!! If you don't know Junie, you should check out her Flickr and her new blog--she is really a sweety and has such a great way of looking at life and of doing things. She has been kind enough to share recipes for home made cleaning supplies, which I think is really wonderful! Be sure to check her out. She recently shared a picture of herself all decked out in her cleaning gear--including a super cute apron and matching head kerchief, and I knew that my little bear would look fabulous in a similar outfit, complete with a little dust rag and a whisk broom! She is now listed in my Etsy shop--swing by and see her and other new items I've recently listed.
I have made a couple other items with the same fabric I used for Mrs. Mooney's apron--it's so pretty . I really love that 1920's style--and the colors are fabulous! Here's a drawstring bag with it and I combined it with another 20's fabric with art deco style roses, rick rack, and a yoyo! AND I also did up a cute little padded snap-on cell phone pouch to match--these are great to snap onto the handle of your purse, your belt loop, or backpack. We finally heard for sure that Misty will be getting the apartment I was telling you about a couple posts ago! Yeah!! I found quite a few things out garage saling that she will be able to use in her new place. So, we've got a busy week ahead of us getting her all packed up and ready to move, and getting her set up with phone, electric, and all that other good stuff. She has come such a long way in a short time and we are so proud of her! Keep on praying for her, your prayers are really working! We will be moving her in on Saturday. It is going to be so strange around here without her, isn't it funny how quickly we adapt to things?
