santa's workshop

My dining room is swimming in metres of fabric and the rest of my house has been trashed by L'il E (toys and books everywhere), but I don't care because I'm busy getting my items ready for the Artisans' Gift Fair!

I'll be selling my lavender eye bags, knitted xmas ornaments and dinner napkins SATURDAY DEC.10 . It's at the Tranzac Club in the Annex (292 Brunswick Ave.). Come on out and even if you don't want to buy anything it would be nice if you just dropped by to say hi (I'll twist your arm). I will have treats at my booth so at least come for the sweets!

Back to the grind and you won't likely be hearing from me for a while. Sorry!




what i made

Now that all of my homemade Christmas gifts have been unwrapped I can share all of my creations with you (my blood, sweat and tears actually).

As you know I had my very popular lavender eye pillows for sale on Etsy and sold several (even to complete strangers!). They're still on sale if your interested (double eyebrow) just send me an email or you can check them out on the fridaysoff Facebook page.

My nephew was the proud recipient of his very own LEGO sac (sorry forgot to take a photo). I followed this super easy tutorial .

My three nieces each received these (pic below) adorable Elodie the Elephants. So cute and cuddly, but not the easiest to make (I have no patience for handstitching!) Put it this way it was a skill building exercise (smiley face). The pattern was from one my fave books One Yard Wonders.

I also made several produce bags (I love a good free online patern) with gorge fabrics from the workroom as well as everyday tote bags from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing.

Now I'm craving new projects! Any suggestions?
