You might notice a few changes happening around here in the next couple of weeks.  All starting with the official domain change!  Welcome to…. 

(no more!) Please be sure to update your reader if it is not automatically done.

 Next, I have ordered some fabric labels and am opening my first Etsy shop (link to be posted soon) in hopes of expanding my hobby into something a bit more legit (don’t worry, I didn’t quite my day job).  I’m super excited about this, so bear with me as I transition.

 In other news, I made this cute shirt following Made By Rae’s Spring Top tutorial:


I wasn’t loving how it looked at first, but then I realized that I just needed some belt love.  I had this white belt on hand, but I think I might make a simple linen belt using the same white fabric I used for the sleeves and shirt top.

 In keeping with the theme of Made By Rae’s patterns, I also whipped up this cute orange Buttercup Bag for a dear friend who just graduated from college:

A couple weeks earlier I made this Buttercup Bag (which I totally forgot to photograph until I got in the car on the way to gift it to the recipient, sorry for the cell phone pictures):


These little purses are so much fun to make, I am definitely considering become a licensed reseller!  I can see a ton of customization in the future too (larger, zippered pockets, different strap configurations, etc).

It is now after 2pm and the husband and I are still traipsing around in our pajamas.  Time to let the day begin!

  1. Hi dearie-pie,

    I love you! I love your new website, and I love your vim and
    vigor and the non-returnable line, and the fabric, and the
    anti-ennui of it all. But most of all, I just love you! Kisses
    and hugs and kisses (not necessarily in that order). Daddy

  2. What is that orange fabric for the buttercup bag? I love it!

    • Hi Mary! I also love this fabric! Unfortunetly I can’t tell you the name because it was a Value Village find! It is a huge tablecloth that was originally from Target (tag says Target Home Collection). I’d love to send you a Fat Quarter though, send me your address and I’ll pop it in the mail!
