I just love this moustache craze!

I've been in Christmas gear all week so I decided to add a little manly style to the traditional stocking design.

This is totally ecofriendly! I used repurposed men's wool pants, and repurposed linens for the inside and an ecofelt that is made from recycled plastic bottles.

I wish I could say I made it on my hand crank sewing machine, than I would have even been off the grid....hmmm....maybe for the next one!

back to where it all began....

it was almost a year ago now that i hit the ground hard to put my sewing designs into product (hence the formal launch of sew sew suck ur toe.etsy)....i've had design ideas floating around in my head for years...finally...YES! FINALLY! i am actually making the product. i opened my sewing store for a few months with just a couple of products...really trying to get my feet wet and establish my design style. now, i revisit an old design favorite in fall colors...."eye am happy" bag. this design was one of my firsts. i like it...i hope you do too!

let's digress just a bit...

i think i missed my real calling...i should have been on some Manhattan project "design think tank group" or some crazy group of people that they put in a cave underground somewhere in a dark room with one lone light bulb overhead tied to a chair and forced to develop a new design everyday or face true creative ruin. i think i could have thrived in that environment.... and used my "genius mind" to pull all the creative inmates together and somehow overtake the place. ha! where do i come up with this you ask??? i think my mom was anal probed by aliens while being pregnant with me and it somehow distorted my mind. possible??? not probable though. i'll blame it on too much polyester clothing in the 70's.

does this my "inner happiness" you ask??? maybe not, so i shall bring it about by canvasing the world with my "eye am happy" design!

Acorns...gotta love'um!

so i have this "thing"...or should i say addiction to acorns. i don't think my family is planning an intervention at least not now that i am aware of. gosh darn it, they are just sooo cute! i missed harvest here and super bummed about that. it's always a fun time getting all the family out for a nice day outside enjoying the first signs of fall. last year we harvested the most gorgeously perfect acorns and soo many darn cute baby ones. (those baby ones led to the 'pet acorn in my pocket' design)

with no acorns for any of my projects i had to begin the internet search for acorns. i am telling all you entrepreneurs out there....SELL ACORNS. i could only find one site to buy them from. i found a terrific gal in Wisconsin that sent me a nice sized ziploc bag full for $5. i was HAPPY!!!
are you looking for acorns too??? acorns by the pound helped me out! YEAH! thank you Stacey!!!! (for some reason I can't seem to get this link to work) check my rotating list of goodness!
so this years acorn design was a little more hip and a little less cutesy but still great none the less. gotta get a pick of a bowl full!

i wish you many happy moments with acorns! okay, did that sound disturbing???
