… with care
Where to start the second post…
Should I start with the projects I’m working on now? Ideas for the future?
How about I’ll post some pictures of things that I’ve already made? Most of these items I have for sale at my page on etsy. My etsy page is also in dire need of attention…but you can go check out the humble beginnings at
Who has enough pockets out there? How about enough ROOM in those pockets? Wouldn’t it be super helpful if you had just one more…or two? I got angry enough at FAKE POCKETS in my clothes to do something….I’ve designed these stylish hideaway spaces to attach on a belt or easily onto a belt loop. They can be attached anywhere there’s a spot to hold on! I plan to make some in the future with a padded lining, geared toward diabetics who wear an insulin pump. I am a type 1 diabetic, diagnosed when I was 7. I’m now a happy pump-wearer, but in the beginning it was a bit tough to figure out where to CARRY it on me. I didn’t want to wear the bulky plastic belt clip…so now I wear my Pump Pocket, and it’s AWESOME.
The Vegetable Circus is a traveling juggling-theater show that interacts and teaches elementary-aged children the importance of healthy eating, responsible decisions, exercise techniques, among MANY other excellent topics.
Pretty self-explanatory….they’re vegetables. Cuddly, snugly, soft vegetables. No, you can’t cook them…but they won’t go bad either. Sometimes life means making compromises. The vegetables can be stuffed with a polyester fiberfill stuffing, like in teddy bears, or poly pellets. The poly pellets are heavier, and much better fur juggling with. Think hacky sacks. Actually…that’s what I use to make my hacky sacks too…
Not Quite Spring Flowers
With a pin on the back, and made in a variety of colors (with endless more options available) These flowers bring a little bit of spring cheer no matter what the weather’s like outside. I wear them on my vest, stick one on a plain purse, pin them on my skirt…they fit anywhere! And they add a little color wherever it’s lacking.
My friend Dave had heart surgery a while ago. When I went to Sudbury Valley School I made a blanket for my friend Steve, who had broken his collarbone. He brought it to school with him and snuggled in it while he was healing. It seemed to me like a GREAT thing to get if you’re doing a lot of bed rest…a SOFT, LOVE-FILLED blanket?? So…Steve liked his so many years ago, and when I sent this one to Dave…with the big D, the strong Dragons, the Hearts, and the Red/Blue Healthy Circulation theme….I’m SO happy with how it turned .out. And Dave was too! Huzzah!!
Ha! Posted!! Haha…blog humor…
Great job, mouse!! Am proud of you! Remember the skirt you sewed endless hours /days using so many old but beautiful ties. Next time you are home you have to show me how you made links to the school in your blog. Feel really old, not knowing so many things with the computer.If you can bring the sewing machine,I have a few little prodjects that could use your help.Thanks Mom
