Embroidered Sketchbooks

So I have this beautiful linen sketchbook and it’s completely blank and in the nicest white linen stock. I love it but I’ve been thinking I want to do something really special to personalize it a bit more. I’ve also been coming across a lot of beautiful embroidery work lately and the two thoughts intersected and now I really want to embroider this sketchbook.

How can you not want to try it with all the lovely inspirations out there for this kind of project? Wish me luck because I will probably cry if I mess up my lovely sketchbook. Ok. Not really.

Gift Guide

This is my gift guide for anyone out there shopping for silly nerdy girls such as myself. What can I say? Those are my people. Any of these lovely things would definitely make me swoon if they just so happened to be under the christmas tree πŸ™‚

1. Polaroid Film. I recently inherited a Polaroid camera through my Freecycle Group and I desperately need film!

2. The Nikon D3000, I like it because it’s fairly inexpensive for this type of camera. But it’s definitely probably still too pricey for me. Maybe if Santa’s feeling generous heehee

3. One Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker. I wantΒ  I want I want. Being new to sewing and all I can’t of anything more perfect than a lovely book full of small projects to start off with!

4. Akzidenz Grotesk in Fabric. I’m such a type nerd. Truly.

5. Amy Butler’s In Stitches. Another lovely sewing book, maybe a person can’t have too many…?

6. Animal Prints by Sharon Montrose. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE PRINTS! They are too beautiful, these are some of my faves but there’s lots more!

Timber Preservation Society

Over the weekend the boyfriend and I attended Unique LA, one of my most favorite local events, and he purchased this awesome tee from Timber Preservation Society.

I really dig the style, the illustrations on these screenprinted tees is so detailed and fun and whimsical and just awesome. They’re so different than what you normally see on tees that I just had to feature them. And I found out that they’ve been a featured seller on etsy before too! The interview is over a year old so I guess I’m a little late to the party on this one but oh well.

My Birthday Gift!

My Birthday was this past Sunday, Decemeber 6th. I turned a WHOLE QUARTER OF A CENTURY! Pretty nifty, eh? And my oh so awesome boyfriend got me this lovely Singer Sewing Machine. Something Ive been wanting for awhile but of course, would never ever splurge on myself on a purchase like this. So it makes this an even more awesome gift because he knows that I would never buy it. And now my new machine sits on my desk waiting to make things. And oh the things I want to make! I dont even know where to start! And I have to admit I’m pretty intimated because I’ve never actually used a sewing machine before.

I love this adorable applique dress I spied over at Cakies. I bet I could try something similar. So cute. I’m sure my nieces would each love one!

Then there’s the headband project from Prudent Baby. This one seems like a good starter project I think. And I do believe I have some cute scrap fabric pieces at home somewhere.

Plus there’s aprons, curtains, mittens, pillo wcases, agh! So many things I want to make. Can’t wait to get started! πŸ™‚
