Sew Me Something Pretty

I grew up with a mother and grandmother who did quite a bit of sewing. I always found it to be a fun activity, just like all the other craft activities I was constantly doing. This last November I finally purchased my first sewing machine! It was so exciting! Within a day or so of having it, I had already made some great business card holders for my sister and myself. 

After Christmas, I became very busy with work and my Etsy shop, leaving my beautiful new sewing machine to sit and collect dust. I have a box full of lovely new fabrics waiting to be made into something great, and I hope that I can soon find time to sew.

I want to share with you a lovely shop where I found an adorable sewing accessory, the cutest pincushion I have ever seen. Found at Sea Pinks on Etsy, I purchased a little yellow pumpkin pincushion to match my new yellow and grey sewing basket. The owner, Jenny, worked with me to find just the right fabric to match and was a pleasure to work with. In her shop, she sells a variety of beautiful embroidery and sewing items. Absolutely love her shop!

Here are some fantastic handmade items by Sea Pinks

Make sure to visit her shop to find all the wonderful items available!
