Christmas Coffee Tote Bags!

December 29, 2010

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas (I think I'm still recovering from all of the food and visitors!). :) I did a bunch of Christmas sewing this year, and wanted to share the latest version of the hot selling Coffee Burlap Tote Bags!

The first generation of the Squirmy Worm Studio Coffee Burlap Tote Bags were designed as a stylish and eco-friendly solution for beach bags, work bags, weekend/overnight bags, etc. The second generation of Squirmy Worm Studio's Coffee Burlap Tote Bags are more compact, measuring approximately 14" tall x 14.25" wide with a 5" gusset. These bags (as shown below) are perfect for an everyday tote and grocery shopping!

I also made two Brazil bags for my Grandma M. I only got a photo of one (with me in the background), but I can confidently say that she LOVED the bags! :)

Little Bitty Aprons!

December 23, 2010

Some of the best ideas for my shop come from my customers, and for that I am SO thankful! After seeing a photo of the aprons I made for my Momma and I for the Craft Show, my sister's co-worker placed a custom order for two children aprons! What makes the story even better, is that the aprons are going to two sweet little girls that are getting play kitchens for Christmas!

Not having made a child's apron before, I headed to Kohl's with my measuring tape in hand, to take some much needed measurements! The aprons turned out great and measure a perfect size 4t!

Time Is Flying By!

December 8, 2010

I'm alive (just in case you were wondering!!!). I've been a bit busy the last couple of days, well technically starting as of last Friday because....I'm working! It's not a 40 hour a week job, but that is a-okay with me, as it has been a challenge to get back into the groove after being a full time Etsy gal for the past five and a half months! For those that want all of the details- I'm working as an independent due diligence consultant for a local architect, performing all of the front end research/investigations needed for our client to make a final decision on a site (exciting- eh?). It is very much what I was doing at my last job, which was a good fit. I found myself a niche! :)

When I'm not at work I REALLY need stay focused, as I have a couple of custom orders to sew up, and with all of the leftover time I'm going to have (HA!) I need to make some Christmas gifts! I procrastinate every year when it comes to shopping and making Christmas gifts. One would think that I would have learned my lesson a time or two, yet I find my self in the same situation. Plus, quite frankly the post office terrifies me this time of year, so the earlier I finish up the custom orders, the better off I'll be! Speaking of handmade Christmas gifts (I'm determined to get them done!), have you heard of the Handmade Pledge? I LOVE giving and receiving handmade gifts- what about you? :)
