Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day.  I hope everyone wore their green today.

The cute little fanny pack and the garden tool bag were a hit.  Look at our last post for photographs of these items.  One lady wanted the garden tool bag but wanted it in a different color.  It only comes in blue.  It is so cute that I'm seriously thinking about making some to sell on Etsy.  Keep an eye out at our etsy shop

This Exfoliating Bath Mitt comes in several colors, as seen in the photograph.  We are able to stitch a small design on these, including a name or initials.  I don't have one with embroidery to show you.  They have a rough texture for exfoliating.  The only way I know of describing it is a soft rough texture.  It is certainly not like a steel wool kind of rough.  The colors are all in pastels and would look lovely for a nice Spring or Easter gift of bath luxuries with some nice soaps, bubble bath, a pretty matching towel and the like.  In fact, I kept one for myself and plan to use it for all of our scrap soap pieces.  Just put the too small bars of soap in there (rather than tossing them in the garbage) and use this bath mitt to bathe or shower.  Perfect!

We've been working on a couple of dog harnesses for little dogs, Tatu and Smoochy.  The customer works at a local law firm, Michels & Booth, and provided the ready made harnesses.  I digitized the logo, names, and the motto "Don't Be A VictimTwice."  With the embroidery machine, we did the buttonholes and used the sewing machine to sew in the buttons and "D" ring.  Each harness took 6 hoopings.  I think they turned out cute.  Here is another item that appears simple to make and may appear in our Etsy store.

Until next time, cher.
