When I was dreaming up the Holiday Craft Bash, today’s project is the one that was most clear in my mind. Its that project I dreamed of and envisioned, and knew I had to copy the pictures my head as closely as possible. My Santa head canvas may be my very favorite Christmas project! It’s […]

  • So cute! I really need to make some of these :)ReplyCancel

  • Hi! I just recently found your blog via Jacey and I am loving your projects. I’m new to sewing and trying to find some easy projects to get familiar and gain confidence with my machine! These coasters fit the bill I think. But I was also wondering if you had a tutorial or could point me in the direction of one for the Mildred wristlets that you have on your header. Thanks in advance!ReplyCancel

    • Hi, Rachel! I’m glad you stumbled across my blog! I do hope you’ll try those coasters. They really are a wonderful and quick project that would be perfect for someone new to sewing! The Mildred bags are my own design. I have some extremely similar bags in my shop (actually the ones on my header) and they’re called Penelope bags. I make the Mildred bags for a local shop, but the Penelope bags are virtually identical. Here’s the link to the bag page in my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/OliviaJaneHand?section_id=7786060 I’m always happy to make custom stuff! :DReplyCancel

  • Wow! They’re beautiful. Nice presents for the Dutch “Sinterklaasfeest” at december 5.ReplyCancel
