"Bring me chocolate and nobody gets hurt."
Love this!
I wonder how quickly it will sell....

Backpacks again

These continue to be very popular.  In my current set, I have tried, where possible, to include one pocket on each which buttons down.  This would make a good phone holder, I feel - though personally I would wear the button pocket next to my back rather than outward facing.

I'm currently considering making a set to be sold to volunteers visiting Utange, with the charity logo on, and maybe the slogan "I visited ..".  Still thinking about it - but these continue to sell almost as quickly as I can make them!

Bibs part 2

I enjoy playing around with designs for these.  This batch contains variations on the theme of "Wild thing" - all found online.
I'm not sure which will be the favourite as far as sales go, but I love the one in the middle.

Sugar and Spice...

"Sugar and Spice and all things nice.  That's what little girls are made of."
This slogan, as with many others, was purchased as an embroidery pattern from Ebroitique.  I love their patterns. especially the slogans.  They come in a variety of sizes and nearly always sew up well.  My photo doesn't really do this one justice - I suspect it will be quickly snapped up.

This set features a Masaii shield - though this is not as popular as I might have expected.

Monsters again

These monsters are pencil or phone cases.  They are cheery and fun - and much faster to make with embroidered eyes!

Lined pocket purses

This is an adaptation of a very popular pattern.  The pocket purses I make always sell well.  These have an added lining, and are boxed at the base.  I like the result - I'll be interested to see how well they sell.
