That little pincushion looks good enough to eat!
Honestly, I have had these fabrics for a full month but have been so crazy busy that I could only gaze lovingly at them. No time to sew, which just about killed me! But my big personal commitment has concluded and I am happily back in the saddle making thread catchers for my Etsy shop Curry Bungalow. I knew that I wanted to begin with my new "Sugar Pie" fabrics.
I made two up in different colorways. LOVE THEM BOTH!!! Wouldn't these make great Mother's Day gifts for your favorite seamstress, quilter or anyone who does needlework? Just posted for sale here. Get 'em while they're hot!

This tutorial is a compliment to a previous tutorial about how to make your own iron on fabric labels. That tutorial can be found here. In my continuing effort to have cohesive branding for my Etsy shop, Curry Bungalow, I have begun wrapping my physical items in tissue for shipping. Taking it a step further, I've been making that wrapping look prettier by tying it with a ribbon and adding a branding sticker. A buyer recently reviewed her Etsy purchase by saying that the item was beautifully wrapped and "I felt as if I was opening a lovely gift, even though I had BOUGHT IT MYSELF!"
|I love the way that they look, all mixed up like this.|
Then I add another sheet of tissue, the purchase packing slip, a business card and a care card. I tape the box closed, add the shipping label to my buyer and off it goes looking pretty!

I know, I know! I've been basically missing in action for a couple of months. Have I mentioned that I am the Co-Chair for the largest quilt show in southern Oregon? And that our show is just over a week away from opening? Needless to say, I've been burning the candle at both ends. Along with quilt show duties I've been working hard at making thread catchers in my "spare time" to list in my shop for those looking for pretty and practical Mother's Day Gifts. I have some new fabrics as well as popular favorites. I will be sewing less and less in the upcoming days so if you see one that you like, you will want to snag it while you can! All are available at my Etsy shop, Curry Bungalow and all include three flower pins to jazz up your pincushion just a bit.
