Flag Banners and a new kind of Arm Candy

This week has been nice.. I have been able to get so much done..

These are all new leather cuffs with vintage jewels and lace that are going to my shop tomorrow..

They make great "arm candy"

I also have been making a few headbands for my girls.. these are for the fourth of July

Yesterday I spent most of my time sewing banners and a few totes..

This has to be my favorite one.. I have a few of these going to the shopn as well.

Hello my name is Mechelle and I am addicted to BURLAP! What is it about this stuff?

I just love it.. I also made a few table runners too that will be going, but somehow they did not make the photo shoot :)

I found a small store that closing and they had a TON of these ready made canvas totes.. I don't know about you, but I have a TON of totes all over the house.. I keep projects in them, take to the kids sporting events with magazines and food in them.. We use them like crazy.

I had some old quilts that had seen better days, but still had a few good pieces on them.. I just appliqued them to the bags.

This one is my daughters.. and she is not done with it yet, but I think it will be cute.. I am adding vintage buttons to them, and then to the shop they will go too.

This one is my favorite.. Love the colors. 
We are finishing up Baseball this week.  The girls are officially done with softball, as of yesterday.  Jake will be done on Thursday and then I can get my yard done, and really get into some serious projects. The kids and I are hanging at the pool when we can and just chillin.. It is so nice NOT to have to get them some where by a certain time and stop and pick someone up.. Hope you are enjoying your summer too!!!!

  1. Wow, you really have been busy and created a lot of great things for your shop. Love the braclets and anything red, white and blue gets my vote. The tote bags were a great buy and I love the idea of useing old quilt blocks on them. How fun to embelish with buttons. Glad you are enjoying your summer.
