Repurposed Printer's Drawer

My Dad and I both worked at a printing company for many years. When the company got rid of an old cabinet he took it home. He had these cute little drawers that he had been using for nuts, bolts and nails, plus a stack he didn't use at all. He said he had been burning them for firewood. What. I couldn't have that. So he gave them all to me.

Aren't they the cutest. I used one during the holidays and added pinecones and ornaments.

I got these cute little drawer pulls at Hobby Lobby (1/2 off of course). Drilled holes for the pulls, then drilled 2 holes in the back and put it up on the wall as a shelf. What do you think? I love it.

Purses and Aprons added to my Etsy Shop

 Today I decided to open my Etsy Shop again. I have made quite a few things lately and wanted to sell them. Apron at the top modeled by my beautiful daughter is made from an upcycled pair of jeans with vintage fabric and ric rak on the pockets.
This is a child size apron from a thrifted tablecloth. Also have an adult size. They really are cute.

I've also added 4 new bags so come by for a visit.

Thanks, Brenda

Elsa and Anna Dresses

It has been a while but I have been really busy sewing and crafting.
My precious girls wanted to dress like Elsa and Anna when they attended the Frozen On Ice last Sunday. I mostly followed the McCall's M7000 pattern. Ruby wanted her dress to be the cornation dress so I had to do some altering. Layla's drape is different from the pattern. They did have a good time and lots of kids were dressed in costumes.

New Wallet and Cushion

 Really needed a new wallet with lots of places for cards. This one holds 38(also great for holding coupons). It was a free tutorial from Infarrantly Creative.  The instructions were fairly easy but I had to go over it a lot to figure out some of the sewing.  The outside fabric is a shower curtain I got at Target for $4.00 and also made a cushion below.

Outer Limits Comic Book Store

First of all I'm so proud of my son Anthony owner of Outer Limits Comic Book Store in Franklin, Tn. He's either worked there or owned the place for 15 years. He loves his job and that's what it's all about. He's moving into a bigger store and he's letting me sell some of my creations.
The first bag is a simple batman clutch.

A bigger bag with some of the super women. Lots of pockets inside.

I do love these Spock and Captain Kirk. He has already sold a set of these. The pattern is from Michelle Coffee on etsy.

Harley Quinn is adorable. This pattern is also from Michelle Coffee. Had to make this for my grandkids.

This bag is a Marvel Comics bag. Also sold one of these.
