catch up...

can't believe august is here already! in miami that means super hot and humid days, so between the usual happenings and doing it's also the time to start prepping for the holiday months. yes i said holidays, not because the retail stores are already on that mode, but because hand makers like me want to have the holiday makes ready to be open for custom orders and to actually enjoy the festivities too, haha!
as you can all see from the past few posts lots of new whimsies and many more to come. in the works got some new novelty pillows, more gitanitas and lots of embroidered art as i start to get ready for my first comic book convention. so if you liked the art piece i made for Bear and Bird Boutique + Gallery's Return of Stitch Wars then you are going to love what's coming. 
so, i am advising all the blog may get a bit neglected, i'll try my best not to, but between the day job, the exercising program i'm doing, the family and the crafty table, things may get overlooked. hopefully not to bad. so don't forget follow on Instagram and Facebook where i post on the run more regularly
on another note, after the 3+ months trial and failure with big cartel, i've decided to migrate back to etsy and while at it to use the patterns affiliation to my advantage and have my professional store front as i wanted. the added value is that i now have two store fronts for the same amount as what i had with big cartel. so now when you click on the site icon you will be lead here not the same of course but it works for now and it looks neat.
well, till next one
n happy crafting

whimsy pouches...

another fun make done for the past pop-up were these whimsy pouches. 
i did a garage sale with my sister in law last month, she had a ton of "stuff" and guess what she had a bunch of?? ZIPPERS!!! so as an insider ( aka. family) she gave them to me free of course and what better way to use them than by making these little pouches. i personally like these because it gives me a chance to play with the huge assortment of fabric i have accumulated, plus they are so useful. i myself have quite a few. so with no further delay here they are...


the cupcake dancer


pretty kitty (yes another cat to the collection ;)


my favorite, the fox


the teddy bear


and a mouse lady


and of course got a few more that i still got to sew, but aren't they CUTE!!! i think so, but some may say i'm biased on my opinions, haha!!! 
so what character is your favorite??

kitty cats...

about a month ago, while doing a pop up show i had a customer ask for kittens, that was when i realized that i had 0, none! 
no big thought had been given prior, i guess being a dog owner had some influence, haha!! anyway of course that made me want to start making some simple cuddly fun kittens. so got on a felt cutting spree and when the last bazaar came up i finished three to see how they fared, well here is what came about.... 


i liked mixing the colors and patterns



there is the third who found a happy home


so as you can guess they were a hit and many more are at the crafty table, yay!!!!
the top two are still unlisted at the shop, but soon enough.
what do you think???
