A Tree Skirt for a Super Fan

I was thrilled when my friend, a super Star Wars fan and all-around super person, commissioned me to make him and his family a custom-themed Christmas tree skirt. After a number of different sketches, I landed on a design that would allow for four tree skirts in one.

There’s a light side, a dark side, and the back side has a licensed print with both. The design includes two separate quilted parts: one a Death Star; the other a Millennium Falcon. Both parts were pieced together from my original design, bound with black bias tape, embellished with a few appliqué details. They tie together with black grosgrain ribbon.

It was a really fun project, and the best part was he loved it. It makes me happy to make things that make others happy!

Craft Like a Hurricane

Everyone deals with stress differently. Some stress-eat. Others stress-sleep. Me? I stress-clean, stress-organize, and stress-craft.

In the 24 hours before Hurricane Irma hit, I went Kon Mari method ALL OVER THIS PLACE, and then I completed two “someday” craft projects, and got a good start on number three.

We were very lucky to come out mostly unscathed, and I just know the crafting and super organized house had something to do with it. 😉

Sew Much To Do

I’ve been busy–writing, momming, wife-ing, and starting a new job. Sew Sew has had to sit back a little bit, but here are two quick shop updates:

1. With such a positive response to the laptop/tablet sleeves I made for my personal computer, I’m now offering them for sale in my Etsy shop. Check ’em out!

2. I’ve been making adjustments to my Sew Sew Sensory Sheets based on feedback from beta testers and fabric availability, and therefore, I will have some new shop updates coming soon! In the meantime, Sew Sew Sensory Sheets can be pre-ordered but will have a 3-4 week wait time.

Thank you Sew Sew much for your understanding!

Spreading the Love

I really love the community that is created through social media. Shipping out today are these two Sew Sew Sensory Sheets that were gifted anonymously from one mama to another. They are connected through a special needs Facebook group and found me through another one like it. How cool is that?? 

In honor of our Red Phoenix Rising Meghan, these are being sent in your neverending pursuit of SPREADING THE LOVE.
