Etsy Shopping

I was etsy shopping late one night, and found more cool handmade things (of course):

I ordered a Patchwork Pillow from The Little Room etsy shop because I loved these colors, which reminded me of the ocean. I love making these pillow covers, so I like to order similar things from other creative people to see how they approach their sewing projects.

I love how Liz packaged it – wrapped in a tissue paper sewing pattern. Clever girl!

I ordered an iHug from the Punchanella etsy shop because it was too cute to pass up, and because I love the Ginger Blossom fabrics. It has an elastic strap to wrap around your iPod while it’s in this pretty case.

I ordered a stash of Ginger Blossom fabrics from the Fresh-Squeezed Fabrics etsy shop because Sandi Henderson’s new Farmers Market fabrics be available soon. I didn’t want to miss out on this collection before it’s gone.

By the way, does anyone know when Sandi’s new Farmers Market fabric collection will be available? I was hoping to use some of it for a swap I am participating in, but I’m afraid I’m running out of time and will have to buy something else (something else equally good, of course).

I found another great etsy shop, which has cool lunch bags and market totes, although I haven’t ordered anything yet. I’m trying to keep my etsy spending in check! And my sister is wondering why a person needs so many bags. Come on – are you kidding?!

Recent Etsy Finds and More

I ordered these great handmade goodies from a recent etsy.com shopping spree. I just had to share them with you.

First I got this unique and adorable crayon caddy from C Berry Baby’s shop.

She made it from Sandi Henderson’s Ginger blossom fabrics, which are so colorful and girly. It has a pretty ribbon closure, and even came filled with crayons!

I also ordered this great market eco-tote from Jenny Hofer Designs, which she made in Amy Butler’s Lotus fabrics.

Then came these awesome scrap bags, not from etsy.com, but from j.caroline creative. They are called short-end remnants, so each piece is about a four-inch square.

I love to get scrap bags because I don’t have to invest as much money or buy a quantity of fabric; instead, it feels like trying it out. These scrap bags came with a great variety, even several Amy Butler fabrics (which I’m carrying around in my purse, due to my fabric addiction).

That sums up my shopping fix for another month. Check out these shops at etsy.com yourself; you won’t be disappointed!
