Amy Butler patterns and more

When I was in Missoula a few weeks ago I found this fantastic fabric store called Selvedge Studio. They had the most amazing fabrics like nothing I had seen before. I discovered Amy Butler patterns and decided to get this one.

Then I fell in love with this fabric from japan to make the bag out of. The fabric is linen and then has these beautiful flowers and birds imprinted on them.

Today my friend Kate and I went to a fabric store in Rigby and I fell in love with this apron. So here is the fabric I brought to make it. Why I need an apron is anyones guess but I just loved this.

At another quilt store I found this utility apron. I tried the model in the store on and it felt great. So I am going to make myself one of these too. I haven't sewn much in years and now I have fabric for three projects. I am not sure what is really going on here but I decided to just go with the flow.

Then I found these circle pendants. I loved the messages on them. I think they will be fun to make necklaces out of.

Moo Cards

These are the images from my moo cards that came into today's mail. I had printed my esty store name on the back so I need to get that going before I can give these out. If you are not familiar with moo cards, what they are is a 1/2 size business card. You can have your artwork printed on them. They are fun to give away when doing swaps or as a calling card or whatever way you choose. I also got a discount card for 15% off on your first order. If any of you are interested send me an email.


  1. Hi Kate,
    I see you have got yourself way busy with sewing. I trying to set up a sewing studio, just still lacking energy to do it. Thanks for your visits and well wishes.

  2. I wish I could sew more than a sort of wavy straight line. I don't have the patience for details a lot of the time - I am just learning to accept that my strength lie else where but man, those patterns and fabric are oh so very tempting !
    Enjoy the sewing creation !

  3. When my kids were small I sewed quite a bit but haven't done much in years. Every once in awhile I get the urge to try something so maybe I'll venture out to the fabric store and see what's new. I love the fabric you chose for the bag. Gorgeous colors!


I love and appreciate receiving your comments.
