Unique Baby Shower Gifts for Girls

I don’t know about you, but summer always seems to be peak baby shower season for me. The scramble to make or find the perfect gift always has me a little crazed. I’m a bit OCD because I like to match my gift up with the baby’s nursery (I know I need to stop). Though I may get absorbed with making the perfect baby shower gift, I realize that not everyone has time to do that. So, with that in mind we are showcasing some of our adorable handmade baby bibs and gift sets. We are kicking it off with baby girl gifts first. I paired our stylish drool bibs with some fun handmade stuffed dolls I made while recovering from surgery. Our handmade bibs and burp cloths are designed to keep baby not only s

Wristlet Wallets: Fun with Polka Dots

Whether you’re going to brunch, running errands, or heading out for a night on the town.

Expressing Good Wishes with Our Bon Voyage Leather Pouch

Did you know that bon voyage is an expression of good wishes to someone about to go on a journey? Last week was a little bittersweet for me because I had to say goodbye to a friend who is moving to Italy with her husband. Mary and I have shared countless stories about fabric, our favorite quilting stores (Gotham Quilts), dress-making and so much more. I figured what better way to express my best wishes then with a custom-made cotton and leather pouch. Our bon voyage leather pouch just seemed to fit the occasion. This pouch is all about celebrating travel with passports, sandals, shades, cabs and handbags featured prominently in the print. This whimsical fabric print is designed by Anna Bond

Bee-Inspired Handmade Gifts

It seems that this Spring and Summer it’s all about the bees. Whether we’re talking about Beyoncé and her beehive or bee print fabrics. Bees are definitely inspiring our every move this season. It’s not hard to figure out why bees are some of the hardest workers pollinating one sixth of the flowering plant species worldwide. We benefit from their honey, wax and the crops that they help pollinate in a multitude of ways. So it only makes sense that we pay these striped yellow and black fuzzy insects homage. We have collected some of our favorite bee related items this season. Check out these buzz worthy gems below... These gorgeous bee inspired earrings from ATeaLeaf make a wonderful addition
