business cards

I’ve been trying out some different business card ideas.  These are square cards with tear-away care instructions.

Just perforating with my sewing machine, using a rubber band as my guide.  But hey, if it gets the job done…

GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY \\ yellow spool

I’ve teamed up with some seriously awesome ladies to put together a giveaway for you.  All things baby, including a quilted nursery pillow, a hairbow/ bowtie of your choice, a pair of the ever-popular Freshly Picked moccasins, a genious teething necklace, and three vintage inspired prints.

This is the mother of all giveaways.  Get it?  Ha.  Even if you don’t have a baby, these items are versatile and would make fantastic baby gifts.  Head over to instagram to enter!

Also, this is the giveaway graphic, feel free to save it to post to your own instagram with the hashtag #littleforthewin to enter!

yellow spool labels

DIY sewing labels \\ yellow spool

When I whip something up for the kids I put in a little heart label, and when I make something yellow spool related, I use my logo.  If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen this a few days ago.

Each label is sewn onto grosgrain ribbon, and it’s a process that I’m sort of addicted to.  Rather than ordering professional labels in bulk, I save a few bucks, and add a personal touch to my work by making the labels myself.  My signature, if you will.

I just made an entire spool of them, and it feels good to be re-stocked and ready to sew!

let there be light

For the past eight months my sewing machine was stationed in a dark, cramped storage room, with only but a dim light on the opposite wall from my table.  Any permanent location for my trusted machine is appreciated, no matter how cave-like the setting, but having natural light flooding my sewing table is sublime.  And I’m definitely enjoying having my work station back in a more social setting.

fawn upon

One of my dearest, long-time friends, Hayley, has just started a brand spankin' new blog called Fawn Upon.

And that's all I have to say about that. Just kidding, but seriously, the name of her site alone is enough to get you racing over there, you don't even need me to explain how insanely cool it is.
But I will anyway, because I think the world needs to know about an idea this fun. Her blog is celebrating the everyday. Literally. She'll be offering printables, projects, party ideas, and the like to help you celebrate some of those obscure holidays we hear about now and then.
PS her first party has a sweet little shoutout for yours truly :)
