Been Busy

I spent some quality time with my sewing room last week... Making myself at home in it. While I didn't feel like making clothes quite yet (although the wind is definitely turning, as adumbrated in yesterday's article), I felt in the mood for cute, fun stuff. I therefore decided to finally start and replenish my sorely neglected Etsy shop.
Here's a sample of what I've been making:
Scented pillows

(the hearts are lavender scented and the strawberries smell of... strawberries!)

Sleeping masks...
And roll-up cases.

I keep having new ideas for more, so the shop's restocking is definitely not over.

That's all for now! Work is calling my name, and after that - my coat.
Bon lundi à vous !

Sweet! I love the roll up case :)

And how nice for you to find sewing friends so close! I look forward to hearing what fabric adventures you and Melissa will have.

You've been so busy Isabelle! Everything looks wonderful :)

I can't wait to see your coat, the style looks fabulous!

Karoline said...

They all look lovely Isabelle, congratulations

Karen said...

Everything looks lovely. I'm glad you're settling in to your new sewing space, and I hope Miss Kitty is helping.

I've nominated you (both) for a Kreative Blogger award.

What beautiful items! Is there no end to you sewing talent!? Can't wait to see the coat you are working on. I am green with envy over the entire block of fabric shops so near to your house. My local fabric shop is closing in two weeks. I did find some incredible bargains....Vogue patterns for $5 each and DMC floss for 13 cents each. This is nearly 80% off the normal price for these items. Also many good prices on fabrics. All the dollies will be getting new dresses soon.

Lovely merchandise.

Rachel said...

I love everything...especially those sleeping masks. I love for it to be dark when I sleep.

I am coming to London for a week in June and as I always look up fabric where ever I go I am wondering where Goldhawk road is ?? I love your little strawbabies as my little boys used to call them!!

Wendy said...

I've just been catching up with you! Congratulations on your move to London, and how wonderful that you have found a little time for sewing. Can't wait to see your progress on that gorgeous coat!
