Craft Night at Lulu's in Phoenixville

Lulu Boutique and Gifterie in Phoenixville is a fun place shop for great vintage and other unique clothing, accessories and more. It's also a very fun place to get together every month for crafts.

 Last night we made little scenes using tops of cans, that have the pull top which is used as a little stand in the back! Such a simple project, lending itself to creativity.







 Really enjoyed making these three gems! 
and will definitely be making some with the grand boys this holiday season.

Lucas Makes a Bear.

Yesterday I gave my grandson Lucas his first sewing lesson. We made a teddy bear. We looked online for a pattern to give us some ideas, and wound up picking one called Charity Bear from Shiny Happy World. Of course we had to tweak the design! He picked out the fabric, a heavy brocade and a paisley corduroy back. He took the bear home before I got a photo of the back! He cut out the pattern, learned how to pin, how to use the presser foot, reverse button, and cutter on the sewing machine. It was his idea to put the yellow parts on the ears......he did most of the stuffing, we added some dried lavender so that made it into a dream pillow. We sewed the opening together with a slip stitch. Ta Da! He named her Lavendy.

New Studio

We are finally in our forever home. So happy to have a huge already in place studio space and am busy lately working on getting it organized. It even has a kitchenette and a full bathroom!

Spring shows for ArtyPantz Productions are starting to happen. The first show was last Friday at a new place for me, Smart From the Start in Chester Heights PA. What a beautiful area, and the school was in a giant historic stone schoolhouse. Lovely staff and such SWEET kids.

Every year my first show just reminds me of how happy I am that an idea that formulated and came to fruition 13 years ago is still going strong.

I am really enjoying sewing beautiful things and look forward to getting this space all set up so I can get back to doing just that! I will be at the Phoenixville Farmers Market with Sew Bee Mine on Saturday April 9th.




and on another happy note....I got a new puppy, named her Pearl.



Happy Spring Everyone!
