How did this take me this long to make one? (the pattern in free via Martha Stewart and the wings, well I “winged it.”)Image

Merry Merry, plus notes from the Trunk Show

Happy everything everyone.

Last month I had my first trunk show. Trunk {SHOW} Girls. I had such a great time I forgot to take photos. So here’s the girl from the flyer. show girl 2.jpg

The Show Girls are:

Mackenzie Banta: Cozy knits and hip accessories.
Mary Lou Banta: Hand thrown ceramics with great shapes and colors.
Francine Burge: Enviro-friendly hats, scarves, accessories made from recycled tees and sweaters.
Nancy Jansen: Beautiful jewelry with a creative flair.
Jen McClennan: Romantic and bohemian inspired crochet purses and accessories.
Karen Olson: Unique hand-woven baskets using everyday items and felted hats and accessories from her own alpaca.

If you came, thank you. If you received a MasterDabbler hat, scarf, or flower-welcome.

A MasterDabbler Esty shop is coming!

Giraffe With Pattern

I love finding old sewing books at the library! Especially if they have patterns. These cuties came from a book from 1968. Coupled with some retro fabric and notions, we’ve got a cute gaggle of giraffes. I used old (1970s) upholstery fabric and ricrac.They all went to good homes. One had some “issues,” I named him Corduroy. He lives with my Aunt Mary, who LOVES him. One went to Dash Darue, who giggles when he sees him; his parents named him Laffy Giraffy!
