Been Playing and Creating

In addition to the stuff I made for the Panda Swap I've actually been working on a few other things.

I have a customer that wants to give coaster sets to her "card group" for Christmas. She liked my coasters but asked if I could come up with a design that showed more of the main fabric and less of the accent fabric. I came up with this design ~ and gave her two different fabric combos to choose from.

Just waiting to hear what she thinks of them.

I also have another customer who loved my football wallet for her husband but wanted something a bit bigger to hold his football tickets. My "regular" wallets measure 4 1/2" wide by 3" tall. She wanted 6" wide by 3 1/2" tall. A little simple math and it was done. Here's a pic of the larger wallet along side the regular one.

Now what else to do... combine the two ... New style coasters in football fabric!
These will go in the Etsy shop

And on a completely different note... I've been playing with beads too. I made this necklace a couple of months ago. I'd like to find a few more pieces like this owl.

I also recently purchased a couple of these little scrabble tiles from Jesse Janes Etsy shop. She has some adorable stuff you should check out. Anyway... I made the red and black necklace for my very pregnant niece and of course, the flamingo for me. I also have a couple of other tiles I haven't played with yet.That and a bunch (and I do mean a bunch) of elastic beaded bracelets have been my vice of late!  Hope you are doing
 some fun stuff as well.

Time for me to get back to the sewing room.  I'm doing a craft fair on November 4th.  Better get my butt in gear!

You've been busy crafting! That's a good thing. I bought an owl pendent very similar to yours at Hobby Lobby but haven't done anything with it yet. I like the beads you used, it turned out great!
