Custom Creation

I just finished the first of six custom pins that were ordered recently.  Here's the first pin:

No.018 felted chocolate merino wool and ivory cashmere with vintage button

Last night I finished the Irish Eyes Flower Cloche in Pale Green Organic Cotton (2-3T).  I listed on the  I had such a good time making it and experimenting with flower patterns.  Eventually I ended up making up my own flower patterns because nothing was turing out the way that the pictures online looked.  I think the three flowers look lovely and will be adorable on any 2 to 3 year old little girl - Irish or not!

The May 19 workshop at Zuzu has been listed on the website and you can contact Allison for details and to reserve your spot.

Etsy Treasury News and May Workshop

Another of my creations has made it into an Etsy Treasury, it's my "wonderful Mother" card in green & brown...  Please click and view the items in the treasury.  The more clicks we receive, the greater chance we have of making it to the front page of Etsy and that's a big deal!!!

I've updated my shop and put my Easter and Mother's Day stock on sale for 20% off.  The Valentine's Day stock is on clearance for 25% off.

I plan to add the two new pins, No.016 and No.017 to the shop by the end of the week as well as the favor bags and charcoal cap.

I'm working on a pale green organic cotton cloche.  It's coming along beautifully and I'll add that to the shop upon completion.

The workshop at Zuzu Studio Gallery has been set for Thursday, May 19.  Please contact Allison @ 856.240.1420 to book your space and for cost information, class size is limited.  I'll be guiding you as we make four cards ~ Baby, Bride, Dad, & Congrats.

What's New?

I had a great time out at the Blue Barn today!  I made several sales and I have one custom listing for six Marie Collection felted pins!!!  I'll be posting those creations here so that you can see the custom work that I create. 

No. 015 - grey cashmere and oatmeal merino wool with vintage button
This I made for myself, so you won't see them in the shop.

No. 16 pink and crimson cashmere with vintage button pin

No. 017 crimson merino wool with vintage button pin

Look for crochet washcloths, a crochet hat, and handstamped favor bags in my shop soon!  They sold well today, but I have available stock that I'll add to the shop over the next several days.

Thanks for reading!

More Marie Collection

If you've visited my website, you'll have noticed that I've added some new pieces to the Marie Collection of felted flower brooches.  They're a touch of spring and so incredibly soft to touch!

The following three have been at Zuzu Studio Gallery for a few months:

No. 005
 felted crimson merino wool and cream cashmere with vintage button

No. 006
felted pink and ivory cashmere with vintage woven button

No. 011
felted grey cashmere with vintage oversized blue button

My newest creation is No. 014, a triplet pink cashmere pin with aqua green buttons.  I had only three of these vintage buttons and I thought they would look lovely with the pink.  What do you think?

More to come soon!
