toy stories

This is great: Gabriele Galimberti traveled around the world to take pictures of children with their toys. What would you have been photographed with?

And the winner is...

Congratulations, Daniel - You are the winner of the Quince pouch giveaway! 

Thank you so much to everyone who entered, and for your very kind comments! They were unnecessary, but very much appreciated.

I am still using military surplus materials, but have also started working with waxed canvas. This material is ideal for bags because it is durable, water resistant, and develops a patina similar to leather with use. I love sewing with it too, it's such a treat after sewing with the surplus materials.
It is not a recycled material, but it is produced by a company in the U.S. that has been producing this fabric since the early 1900s, uses food quality waxes, and cares about the integrity of their product.

I thought I'd try to do a welcome back giveaway to get back into the swing of things. Up for grabs is a choice of one of the updated Quince pouches, either in waxed canvas or wool.
To enter, please leave a comment on this post. I just created a new Facebook page too, and it would be greatly appreciated if you could Like it, but it is not a requirement for entry.

A winner will be chosen at random on Sunday December 9th.

Clasp pouches

Added a few clasp frame pouches in the Etsy shop. We used to make these every year for the One of a Kind show but never managed to make it home with any to put in the webshop.
