get crafty.

January 11, 2010

Today was a big day for me…I bought myself a serger sewing machine….and I’m crazy excited about it! I can’t wait to finish my post so I can go play with my new toy…I’m completely geeked out!

…Which brings me to the incredible fabrics by Daisy Janie. Designer Jan DiCintio {of Scoutie Girl fame} uses such fresh color combinations, and I adore her designs. She uses organic cotton sateen & organic cotton/hemp blend canvas. Really wonderful fabric for whatever crafty project you may have! Once I teach myself how to use my new machine, I look forward to ordering some fabulous fabric! What should I make?

I love these garlands from Pretty Swell {Oh…and it’s another Hawaiian business…did I say that my last post was the LAST one from the islands? well, I lied!!}. These are so festive and fun. You can choose custom colors too!

I’d love to have these draped about for a party…or maybe in my daughter’s room…SO cute!

I love Chicago based Sew Bettie! Owners Mark and Cara {and their dog/muse Bettie} offer great limited-edition fabric, tees, DIY kits and sweet pincushions on their online shop. My very fave is the bulldog fabric {and it’s limited edition…so if you like it, buy some before it’s gone!}. Their kits would make a great gift for that crafty person on your list too! Check them out!
