What I’m Making Over Here

Hi,

So, You know I make little things here and there and put them up in my Etsy Shop BowKnots?

Well, I’ve been up to something new these past 2 weeks-ish. I’ve opened another shop. It sounds odd, but it has been fun. I wanted to make the sweet, cute, little stuffed toys, and have a place to put up little paintings and art. It is called Dear Sweet World (didn’t see that coming right?) Here is a sampling of some things in the shop.

Mr. Wood is in love with the star wars friends that I've been making. I might have to make some for him for his birthday. Inspired by lovely Julie’s children and their obsession of star wars everything. They are the reason (and with Mr. Wood’s suggestions) that I decided to open another shop.

I have to admit that Little Luke is the cutest thing I've made in a while.

Some paintings that I painted.

And, what I'm working on this week—babushkas. My goal is to use remnant material and some of the vintage niceties I've collected to make these one of a kind plush dolls. Also, as an excuse to develop more of my hand embroidery skills.

So tell your star-wars-obsessed/russian-folk-loving friend! And take a look at the new shop here

What do you think?

  2. Woohoo! I love BOTH of your shops. I would totally buy some earrings from you...but my ears don't get along with such things these days. That's pretty much the only thing stopping me. And the whole I don't have money thing. Yep.
