I made this sign this morning and plan to offer it for sale in our Etsy Shop sometime today or tomorrow. I made it at the request of my daughter, who gives me alot of inspiration. I think a sewer or a quilter might like to hang this sign on their sewing room wall. I distressed it to give it an aged appearance because my daughter likes the signs done that way, and I like them that way myself. --Bob
I made the Quilting sign shown above at the request of my daughter, who has a Long Arm Quilting business. I wasn't too sure if it a Quilter would want a sign like that, but it seems to be getting alot of people looking at it in our Etsy Shop. The Fabric by the Yard sign was meant to be like a sign in an old fashioned fabric shop or general store. It would look good by itself in a Sewing or Quilting room either by itself or in a collage of signs. The price of each sign is $14 plus shipping and you can buy them in our Etsy Shop.
Here's a photo of the "Sewing Room" sign I mentioned in my last post. I made this yesterday at the request of my daughter, who is an avid Quilter. I almost didn't list it in our Etsy Shop because my wife (Diana) wanted it to put on the door of her sewing room. I promised I would make her one and that will probably be my next project. The needle and thread design around the outside border was Diana's idea and I thought it added a little something to the sign. I don't know if people will notice it right away, though. -- Bob
I made this sign yesterday, and decided to post it for sale in our Etsy Shop. I was kind of going for the look of an old Apple Crate end. I am talking about the end panel of a crate they used to put apples in to take to the produce market. They used to put the word "Apples" on the crate with a picture of apples to accent the word. That is what inspired me to do this sign. Anyways, I think it would look nice in a Country kitchen or even a Traditional kitchen for that matter. Today, I finished making a sign that says "Sewing Room". I haven't had a chance to photograph it yet, so I probably won't post a pic of it here until tomorrow. --Bob
I made these four fabric storage baskets a while ago and thought I would post them in our Etsy Shop. Bob doesn't care for the fabric I used, but I do. I made them out of canvas so they would be durable. You can use them to store odds and ends that you use frequently, like cotton balls or pencils or make up supplies. They are of a size that fits nicely on a dresser or on the bathroom vanity. If you aren interested in them, go take a look at the listing in our Etsy Shop (just click on the link at right hand side of this page). --Diana
I made these signs yesterday and today as an experiment. I have never made signs to sell before seriously. Oh, I made one or two now and then for my own amusement or as a gift, but never to sell. I am going to take these to a craft show with some others I make and see how they go. I don't know if I will list them in our Etsy Shop. I haven't decided yet. --Bob
I made this coaster set about a month ago and have finally posted a picture of it. I got the idea from a magazine and thought I would give it a try. I made the coasters out of 1/4" MDF and the storage holder out of 3/8" and 1/4" MDF. I painted the whole thing with a green on black stippled affect and then painted a different fruit on each of the coaster tiles. I enjoyed making it, but it was alot of work. I listed it in our Etsy Shop for sale, but haven't had alot of lookers at it. My daughter says that coaster sets aren't a hot item. I don't know. If it doesn't sell I can give it as a Christmas gift. --Bob
