Shop Update: Wood + Plastic + Fabric

Shop Update: Wood + Plastic + Fabric {an Art School Dropout's life}The shop is officially updated and ready for shopping! I kept this stocking small, since it is the first big update in a year or so. I don’t want to be overwhelmed and make mistakes. I need to get back in the swing of things.

If all goes well today, I will have another update in the next two weeks. So if you missed out on something today, don’t worry, just let me know in the comments below what your favorite pieces were and I’ll try and restock something similar. You can also leave comments with fabric suggestions/requests for the Fabric + Wood or Fabric + Plastic Necklaces. For this update I chose using my own personal taste.

Thanks for stopping by, you guys seriously have made my week with your enthusiasm and encouragement.

Marbled Hexies Fleece Blanket

Marbled Hexies Fleece Blanket ; Custom Zazzle {an Art School Dropout's life}

Last year I had shared my first custom fleece blanket from Zazzle, as seen here, and we have been in love with it since. It washed up so well and still is as great looking and fluffy as ever.

So of course when they had yet another huge fleece sale, I just HAD to snag myself one. This time I used my new Various Marbled Hexies design on a much larger blanket. It’s perfection and looks great folded up on my couch. I am now officially obsessed with custom products. Seriously. Wait until i get good photos of the custom towel I also have made!! CRAZY!

Janome Memory Craft 9400 QCP Review, Tips & Tricks

A few months back I was approached by the kind people at Janome and asked if I would like to borrow one of their new machines and give a review. I’ve only sewn on a Janome twice in my life, once was at Glamp Stitch-A-Lot last year and then when I help my daughter with her Sew Mini machine. Both times were good experiences, so I said why not.

Say hello to the Janome Memory Craft 9400 QCP. It’s loaded with so many bells and whistles that I didn’t even know where to start with this review. I have a lot to say, so strap in for the long haul. Oh, and if you stick around to the end I’ll tell you how I pieced that pouch shown above…

Marbled Hexies Repeat Patterns

I had talked two days ago about making jewelry again and showed off some new marbled hexagon pieces. Well, I went another step and scanned a huge handful of those hexagons and digitized them to be used in all kinds of projects.

I thinking I’m going to run with this idea and see exactly what I can make when I mix my jewelry with my quilting. The sky is the limit.

For now I’ve added a whole bunch of pieces using the scans to my Society6 shop
