Update on EtsyMom Challenge

Well, according to the EtsyMom Website, the participation with this challenge was awesome.  I know I thought that the items made were great.

We were suppose to encourage people to vote on the item that they thought most represented the challenge and used the color palette the best -  not just have our friends vote for us (which is hard to do because I want to win!).

This is the item that I liked best.  It's by Little Tadpole Designs.  I thought she used the color palette best and it looks like she put alot of work into her little doll.  Plus it's cute as a bug.

Well, guess what.  She won and clearly someone else liked her adorable doll too because it's sold.

Congrats to Little Tadpole Designs and her sweet Kelly.
What a great Christmas present that will be for some sweet little girl.  And never fear, this one may be sold but she has more in her shop that are just as cute!

EtsyMom Color Palette Challenge

The EtsyMom team is having a color palette challenge for Fall. 
The idea behind it was to choose 1 of the 3 "mini palettes", make an item using those colors, list it in your etsy shop, have people vote on all the cool stuff and the winner gets a prize from a sponsor shop.

SO, I decided to enter.  I chose mini color palette #1.
And this is what I came up with:

The fabrics I used are from Robert Kaufman.  The coffee bean fabric is from Metro Market and the chicken fabric is from Monaluna.  The apron is for sale even though it's part of the challenge.  Just CLICK HERE to go to my shop! 
I think it turned out really cute. 
Voting starts on Monday and I'll be posting instructions on how to vote.

Ho Ho Ho Christmas Stockings

This week I started listing my new quilted Christmas Stockings in my etsy shop.  I have two styles:  the traditional, and the elf stocking.

I can personalize the elf stocking with an initial.  I'm going to list those as "made to order" today.
I'm really loving my new walking foot for my sewing machine, btw.  I can't believe I didn't have one before.  Where has it been all my life?

Honestly, if you don't have one for your machine, get one.  You can use it to sew almost anything and it makes everything so much easier.  The only thing that I've found so far, that I CAN"T sew with it, are the little labels that I use in my coin purses and aprons.
I love you walking foot - almost as much as I love my Eureka Steam Mop.  Or maybe more. :)
