It was a bear, you guys, a real live bear. Apparently most of you weren't quite as impressed with the bear poo as I was [giggle]. I am a nut for wild animal sightings. I think my enthusiasm for the visits from Mr. Bear clouded my judgment of what pictures you would really like to see. But, come on, there is a bear in my backyard. How cool is that? Ok. I will shut-up about the bear now. But I do thank Nanette, Tonya, Brigette, and Jona for sharing my enthusiasm with clever comments about bears and my close-up photography skills. LOL! Today I promise to stick with pictures of things that are lovely and tasteful.
A while back I ordered some woven sew-in tags for the things I was making.
I like the tags very much, but they are a little large. Also, I ordered them with orange lettering. The tags look lovely in their storage jar and on items that coordinate with orange. Most of the time, though, they don't look good sewn in to what I am making. I usually end up not sewing one on.
Well, a few days back, I found this tutorial by Patchwork*Pottery. It is a dandy. Look at these cool tags I made with my computer, twill tape, and iron-on transfer paper.
You should definitely give this a try if you are in the market for some tags. Thanks for a great tutorial, Laurraine.
I've also been busy stitching up some bags for a few custom orders. Here is my latest effort.
The green Amy Butler full moon polka dot fabric seems to be my default fabric. It goes with everything. I only have a bit of it left. I can't decide whether I should get some more or move on. Hmmm? I don't want to be a one note wonder. It's probably time to move on. But I will miss those green polka dots. They have served me well.
I guess that's all for now unless you'd like to see what the deer are leaving in my yard. Just kidding!
