Apple of my eye

I thought I'd share a few of shots of some newly finished work. It's just 3 weeks till the spring Urban Barn Market. I've got a lot of sewing still to do.

I've been "shopping" in my fabric stash. I had forgotten about so many wonderful prints I had saved away. I particularly love the vintage styled circus print. I'm debating whether the remaining fabric should be more booties or shorts for my youngest.

I also have been working through my stacks of wool I cut up.     These are booties are available here.

Felt and floss

I have been busy restocking my crossover booties and spent a lot of hours sewing at the machine. This afternoon I finished up a batch of 42 new pairs in time for spring markets.  

To celebrate the end of a mass production cycle, I spent a lovely hour digging through my felt and floss planing out more hand embroidered booties. I love making these. Each pair is a doodle if you will of stitches. I always try to keep a pair stashed in my bag for filling the time while waiting for a lesson to end or while my girls are busy playing in the park.
