I hadn't heard of Sajouuntil I got my Martha Pullen catalog in the mail. These are truly beautiful sewing accessories. Their website has even more beautiful things like pocketknives. Who doesn't want a beautiful pocket knife?!!!! Definitely on my wish list.
Just check out how pretty these things are:
I love these tiny pretty scissors. I'll have to save my pennies (or francs or euros)...
Purina donates to breast cancer research from every pink bag of chicken feed sold. Consequently, the pink feed bags are really cute (that hen looks just like my Sophie). I've always felt bad throwing away such a sturdy product after I've filled my grain bin. I always thought they'd make cute market bags, so I finally got around to doing something with them.
The tight plastic weave is totally waterproof making this the ideal bag for dirt, sand, wet swimsuits etc. I think it's pretty indestructible too. I made the bag portion a square box and when I do it again, I think I will taper in the bottom a bit more, more of a triangle shape.
It wasn't hard to sew: my machine did fine with the material, but it's not very flexible, so getting those handles on and turning right side out was a beast.
So there you go, if you've got any chicken feed bags lying around make them into a tote!
The weather gets nice around here and just like that my inner farmgirl comes out. I want to soak up the sun and plan my garden and hangout in the coop and pet chickens. Here are some really cute things to inspire your inner farmgirl: From The Cotton Shedd From bellybaloo From Shabby Scraps From Wallflower Vintage Nine West
Heather Bullard lives in the house of my dreams. Her style is exactly how I would live if I didn't have real people to deal with. And I lived in a warm climate. I'm pretty sure I'd be happy just living in her chicken coop...
She has lots of free Valentine Printables. Cute, sweet, lovey, romantic ones. I really like this poster with the French saying. You can get it here.
Each time I get a new set of fat quarters put together, I think, "this is my favorite." And here I go again. This could be my real favorite. It's no secret that pink's my favorite color and I just love how well these all go together. I love the softer pink mixed with the citrus-y greens and yellows. I think these would make an adorable baby quilt. Anyone having a baby girl out there?
My friend Susie opened a really cute etsy shop. She has such fun things for sale like cozy knitted baby beanies and adorable love note pillows--perfect for valentines day. This scarf is my personal favorite. Check her out here.
