Coffee Cup Bling

I have been making these adorable coffee cup cozees with scraps left over from sewing aprons and bags. The great thing is that they are washable and reusable -- and best of all -- they give your latte or coffee a little bling!

They are really simple to make. I had to break down and buy a latte from Starbucks (awww shucks) so I could get myself a template cardboard sleeve. I use contrasting fabric on the inner side and inner-facing to give some insulation. I also used pony tail holders or elastic and vintage buttons or fabric-covered buttons to form an expandable closure. I have made some in seasonal and non-seasonal prints. Simple and pretty.

I will post updated pictures this weekend of my booth so you can see some of the other things I have made.

****Please note*****
Next Friday (Black Friday) there will be a 50% off sale at
Grady's Corner from 6-9 AM.
My booth WILL be part of this sale.
So---if you see something you want -- set your alarm clock and head on over
for INCREDIBLE savings!

A New Venture

A new home decorating store is opening in a neighboring town in a few weeks, and luckily for me, the owner asked me to make a few things to consign to her store. I'll have to wait and see how well consignment works. I hope to be able to go to her store before it opens and take a few pictures to show you -- I can write more about the particulars later. In the mean time I wanted to give a sneak peek.

The store owner, Diane, LOVES french country.
So she asked specifically for things of that nature --
animal prints, black and white, toiles, red and gold.

My table runners are all completely reversible and complementary
(AND made of high end fabrics and trims)
-- like getting two runners in one.

This is my favorite table runner by far.
I think I should keep it.
It matches my home completely.
What do you think?
