sorry that I have not posted in awhile! Been reorganizing my sewing/craft room. Fabrics sorted, folded and now easy to see what I have! Ideas popping in my head! But I still have tons to do in here! Can’t wait to get cranking on new things!
I just added in all my sewing pattern PDF files to the site Craftsy.com!
They have a fantastic site! So many great ideas to make! I am sooooo inspired!!!
Check them out and also check out my sewing patterns too!!!
Hot off the press!! I just approved the sample and listed this for sale on my Spoonflower page! Ok! Just approved my latest design which is available for sale! On Spoonflower you can chose what type of fabric you want. Lots of choices.
An awesome fabric for kids projects. Cool for your kids play tent, make a quilt with this or even a cute sundress, apron, etc…….. The image is large scale. (You can see the size with the quarter on the fabric.) If anyone is interested in this on a smaller scale and a different background color. Let me know and I will make it available!!!
Remember this vintage toy? I have seen that they are back with all the other vintage toys.
I always loved how the eyes would walk with you when you pulled this toy along. This fabric will be available soon on my SPOONFLOWER page! Check out my other fabrics!
Epursepatterns.com have uploaded Mackerilla Sewing Patterns onto their site and they are now available to purchase PDF files! Saaaweeeeet!!!!

Mackerilla Design Sewing Patterns PDF’s have been picked up by http://epursepatterns.com/ !!!
Should be up and running soon on their site!!!
I am back in action sewing! It’s been a long weary year. We had a close friend who recently passed away from fighting a rare genetic cancer.
I put my business on the back burner as well as all his other friends had to help him with all his needs for the past 8 months. We all wanted to spend as much quality time with him before he left for a better place. He now is no longer in pain and I am sure is watching over us.
So I apologize for not being around much on this blog. I have started a few new designs to be made into new sewing patterns. Will be cutting and sewing and perfecting, then creating more patterns.
Volunteering is a great way to help out people and animals in need!
I have been wanting to do some of that myself since I have the time now that crafting is done for the year! Finished with all my Holiday Craft Bazaars! So done selling my wares to helping out where I can! I always donate part of my sales to Gimpy Pets then I can donate to any animal that is needing some money for their medical needs and more. My last donation went to One Dog Rescue to a cute little muffin named Marshmellow!
I did a search online for volunteering in Santa Cruz where I live. If you type in your town and the word volunteer, I am sure there is an organization that has a list of things you can do.
I clicked on the local volunteering pages “Events” section to see what I could do for this Holiday Season. I want to do something for the SPCA here. They have an adoption center in our local shopping mall. They need volunteers for their gift wrapping and for help around their storefront. Just waiting to hear back from someone on what is available to do for them.
Not only will I volunteer during the Holidays…….I plan on doing it all year long when I have free time when work is slow!
If you can do this too!!!! Then please check online for your local Volunteer Organization and see what you can do to help out! It’s a rewarding way to give the gift of your time and your skills to all that can use it!!
This instructional sewing pattern is easy to follow. You can also modify the size to make it a large bag or shrink it down to a tiny bag, all my just adjusting the dimensions.
Pattern PDF file is available for $5 on my ETSY page!
