This would have to be one of my most favourite things I saw at @quiltmarket earlier this month for many reasons....⠀

Beautiful rainbows ✅⠀
Thread (highly important sewing motion!) ✅⠀
Sewing mantra I couldn’t agree with more ✅⠀

I really need to make one of these for my studio... ⠀

I love a good coffee, and look forward to my mid morning @nespresso each day... 🤤🙊 Not for the caffeine hit that others drink coffee for, but for the taste and the comfort in wrapping my hands around a hot cuppa. ☕️ You?

YES!!! 🙌 Some days I really couldn’t agree more!!! What do you think...?

Gift certificates are available and make for a great gift this Christmas! 🎄 Contact us at support@andriedesigns.com to find out more! 🎁

This Adventure Time Backpack was made by one of our lovely customers Megan from @inksoulcreations at our 3-day intensive class held at @voodoorabbitfabric earlier this year... ⠀

Megan had a great fear of zippers, and would actively seek out patterns that did NOT have zippers in them, to make...⠀

This bag has four zippers - two dress zippers and 2 long pull zippers...⠀

Through sheer determination and active participation in our class, Megan learnt how to install zippers easily and successfully, and went on to complete her amazing Adventure Time Backpack with ease and enjoyment. 😍😍😍⠀

We LOVE happy customer stories like this - THIS is what we do it for. 👍⠀

We absolutely LOVE these tees from Alison at @loreleijayne !! 💗 SO fun and beautifully designed! We love them so much that we wanted to order them to wear at @quiltmarket but ran out of time! 😕 ⠀

If you’re stuck on what to buy that special bag making loved one, why not surprise them with a tee? 🎁 Simply click through to Alison’s page to find the link to her shop! ⠀

"Bag Making is my Superpower and i want to show the world! You can too with this awesome shirt, it's available now in my shop (link in bio)."⠀
