This Week’s Fun

I was the only Sharon I knew growing up, and it was never easy to find a toothbrush, or barrettes, or birthday card with my name on it. So when Barbara ordered a finger puppet kit for her neice, and mentioned personalizing this bag would mean a lot to Mylena, it was my seven-year old self that said yes.

My first thought was to embroider her name on it, but I love this font (ziggy zoe) and my embroidery stitches are never quite what I want them to be, so I settled for printing on fabric and sewing it on. I'm pleased with the result, and hope she is, too.

These finger puppet kits are such fun to put together–perhaps another glimpse of my seven-year old self, who loves anything to do with glitter and glue?

Happy sewing, and happy summer!

I’ve been busy behind my sewing machine these past few weeks working on new creations for spring and summer. I have a variety of tote bags—perfect for market outings, picnics or trips to the beach—along with new, playful dolls and owls. Each item features all-cotton materials with colorful patterns. Take a look at the details in my work. With hand stitched collars and decorative buttons, my child dolls are perfect gifts for the little ones in your family.
