Crushing on this felted heart by my skillful friend Nancy.💕 #feltedwool #feltedflowers #heartart #felted

Wrap dress, in action. A few of these dresses in lightweight canvas and denim and linen, will be at @beehivebazaar this weekend and then later on Etsy... I’m trying to keep up with it all... I can’t remember where I got the pattern ~circa 1975~ but it’s a classic and a favorite. #wrapdress #butcherapron #wraparounddress #workapron #cuteapron #aprondress #overalldress #buyhandmade #handmadeclothing #beehivebazaar

I’ve been working with linen this week or so, making wrap dresses and wrap around skirts from vintage patterns. I do love the finished, washed final product. #linen #linendress #wraparoundskirt #wrapdress #beehivebazaar #handmadeskirt #handmadeclothing #sewinglife

Utah friends... @beehivebazaar is this weekend and the next! I’ve been sewing like crazy in preparation- lots of textile goodness coming your way from my camp. 🤘🏼😊 #madeinutah #beehivebazaar #shoplocalutah #shopsmallutah #beehivestate #utahisrad #buyhandmadeutah #provoutah

Experimenting and up cycling today with old sails and vinyl banners that have been donated my way. The bag shape repeated here is inspired and emulated by a ditty bag I got last year in Capetown, that I ❤️ so much. #favoritebag #upcycleddesigns #recycledsails #recycledsailsbag #upcycledvinyls #recycledvinylbanners #lookslikealoafofbread #recycler #upcycling

Revisiting a tiny (2” x 3”) red velvet cross patch, sewn into my river journal last year. I always plan on doing more hand stitching and then too much other stuff gets in the way. ~The quiet and slow living of river travel sure was lovely.~ #grandcanyontrip #slowstitching #slowstitch #cross #handstitch #stitchinglife #journalpage #journalart #livesimply #livesimple #ilovesewing

This handstitched square was mixed in with a pile of fabric I was given. I’m always amazed when something like this, which probably took a hundred hours to appliqué is just tossed aside or forgotten about. I treat it reverentially... also, what should I do with it? #handstitched #sewinglife #slowstitching #handappliqué #handmadelove #stitching #hmongpandau #hmong
