Fabric Buttons

I finally figured out what to do with those scraps of vintage and other fabric I just can't part with – make buttons! These are for sale in my Etsy shop.

Lavender Sachets

I've always loved lavender sachets – there's something very satisfying about the utility of them. However most of them are a little too sedate for my taste. So I made a few with some vintage fabric and trim, Sam-style. They are for sale in my Etsy shop.

Cath Kidston

I was shopping in LA today and came across a Cath Kidston shop. I feel so out of it! I've never heard of her. Anyway – it's a dream shop. She started out as a fabric designer, started making her own products and now has over 500. She makes everything from bags, hot water bottle covers, towels, tea towels, cushions, and bedding to tents, china, umbrellas, and women and children’s clothing. And the best is they are all made from her amazing fabrics which she also sells by the yard – including oilcloth. And finally the shops are also stocked with vintage china, jewelry and bags.

Here are my goodies: some fabric and an oilcloth bag



And this is her office – allegedly

It’s been a transportation kind of a week

The kid has finally shown an interest in one of my all-time favorites Ed Emberley. He has been carrying around this book and another one I picked up at the local SA

Then I found this fabric at my local store – how could I resist?
