Making: small and sweet

Mini-tote party

Wrist strap, key fob

In Dutch, there’s a phrase “klein maar fijn.” It refers to things that are small, but oh so nice. This has been a week of klein maar fijn sewing. Little wrist straps using my scraps and mini-totes to do some workshop marketing. If you follow Earth Apple Studio on Facebook, you’ve been treated to my making and mini-tote tour. It’s all in preparation for de Linden Market this coming Sunday (6 April) and workshops at Studio Jurk starting on 14 April!

Too much fun

Don’t tell anyone, but I’ve been having too much fun in my workroom this week. These scrap-booklet covers are tons of fun to make, from picking out the scraps to the applique work, which is a bit more down and dirty than piecing or sewing in zippers. Scratch that – a lot more down and dirty. Want to see how they turn out? Come see visit the Linden Market! I’ll be in the Lindenberg downtown Nijmegen Sunday, 22 December from 12 – 17. I’ll be on the third (second if you’re Dutch) floor again with Marieke and her wonderful pictures printed on wood. See you there!
