as we enter fall

It is quickly feeling like fall here in Portland. I usually get up early to have my cup of french press before everyone else wakes up. This morning the air was crisp & chilly and I quickly rummaged about for a cosy sweater & woolly socks. In honor of the changing season, here are some new zipper pouches in fabulous colors & prints.

I love lists and organizing. These zipper pouches are my favorite right now. They are roomy enough to fit all the essentials (cash, cards, keys, phone..lipstick), but small enough to throw into a larger bag or even your jacket pocket. Here are the latest in our shop, made out of amazing Japanese fabrics (compliments of my dear friend Alison). The colors and prints are so lovely and you better grab yours before they are all gone!

weekend work

It was a busy, busy weekend. In addition to our regular orders, we are in the midst of creating for the fabulous Crafty Wonderland Super Colossal Spring Sale. We've been slow roasting new salt batches in enticing, unique flavors and piecing together gorgeous colors & fabrics into beautiful bags. One of my favorite details is our hand printed logo in each bag. It takes extra time, but I really enjoy this meditation & connection to each piece. Have a wonderful Monday and hope to see our local friends at the Crafty Wonderland sale on Saturday, May 10th from 11am-6pm!

Fabric Inspiration

Sarah has just returned from a three week whirlwind trip to Kenya and South Africa.  More to come on her travels soon, but for today we thought you'd enjoy a little fabric eye candy from South Africa.

 Sarah's favorite shop, on what she called, "Fabric Street" in Durban.  Any store with haberdashery on their sign has our attention.

 Similar to an oil cloth.  Would make a great travel cosmetic bag.
