Introducing Toffee Apple Sweet Kreations

“Who is Toffee Apple Sweet Kreations?
Toffee Apple Sweet Kreations was born from my love for fabrics and sewing. I started making cloth reusables earlier this year due to one of my daughters starting her period and I disliked the thought of her using disposables for her entire life, as she has had severe reactions to certain things in the past. The name Toffee Apple Sweet Kreations includes the first letters of mine and my children’s names.
So who am I? I am a mother of 3 awesome special needs children whom I homeschool with the aide of Distance Education, I am also a Dog Groomer by trade for almost 20yrs. My love for sewing began when I was around the age of 9yrs old the day my mother allowed me to actually use her sewing machine.
Today my love of fabric has made me an addict of sorts because there are so many cute adorable and different cotton prints available and its hard to resist them when all I can see in my mind are what the different styles of pads and wetbags I create would look like in each print I find. Fabrics I commonly use for all my sewing include, Cotton, Cotton Flannel, Minky and a small amount of Bamboo Velour. I absolutely love Hemp Fleece for pad cores and am about to venture into the world of Zorb.
My creations are generally custom made to order as I really do love to make people happy with what they purchase from me and I love the thrill of creating with fabric choices I would possibly never thought to put together.
Please do join my Facebook Group to keep up to date with all the happenings of Toffee Apple Sweet Kreations https://www.facebook.com/groups/ToffeeAppleSweetKreations/ . If you are not on facebook please feel free to email any questions you may have in regards to an order you would like to make or anything at all.”

Here’s why embroidery is so awesome

mishmash_embroidery_article01(Post by Daisy from MishMash)

Did you ever get the chance to add the the Tula Pink Acacia Racoon print to your life in some shape or form? No? Same here. I completely missed the boat.

What’s more, a recent search for this elusive, rare and out of print fabric brought up a listing on etsy where it was up for grabs here in Australia at $100 per yard so yip, I’d say that boat has sailed far into the horizon.

mishmash_embroidery_article02

So for those of you who have appreciation for Tula Pinks epic creative skills this emby design is from Urban Threads and I’ve only been meaning to stitch it out for just over a year now.

mishmash_embroidery_article03A lot of thought and consideration went into the colour scheme, it looked pretty complicated with the 17 colour changes and I really wanted to avoid browns especially when using the tie dye minky as the base. The finished result is a pretty close match to the original colour palette of the fabric and overall it turned out great.

mishmash_embroidery_article04After the 1 hour and 40 minutes stitch out time I’d say the colours came together pretty well. So far I have made only two of these minky cosmetic bags in pink and I think I will make another two in blue. So there it is, being able to use embroidery on projects this way with materials that I ACTUALLY have on hand is why I think machine embroidery is just so…..well….awesome!!! The list of restrictions becomes a little less lengthy and it’s actually a lot of fun working these ideas out.

If you ever have time, take a look at the UT online magazine. If you find a favourite that you’d like to see used in projects let me know!

Daisy & Bird

Introducing a new store on Cloth Pad Shop Australia – Daisy & Bird!

http://www.clothpadshop.com.au/store/daisy-bird/

“Daisy & Bird makes pads, breast pads, wet bags, and wipes.

I began investigating cloth pads when my eldest daughter began going through puberty, and I wanted a healthier and more environmentally sustainable way to deal with it right from the start, and having something pretty in your pants is way more fun 😉

I’m a mum to 3 (a teenage boy and 2 girls) who I homeschool. Sewing gives me some sanity, and helps to supplement our income. We currently live in Canberra.”

Prairie Valley Cloth

Introducing another new store to Cloth Pad Shop USA – Prairie Valley Cloth!

http://www.clothpadshop.com/usa/store/prairie-valley-cloth/

“Hey y’all – I’m Min – owner and operator of Prairie Valley Cloth. I make a little of everything fabric – focusing mainly on reusable items and custom items for all sizes and shapes. I have a mission statement of making everyone feel welcome and appreciated, so I try really hard to work with people to get them what they need, even if it means stepping outside the box – be that hard to find sizes, personalized items, gender neutral items. I try to never say no before thoroughly exploring all options available to make something happen. I’m somewhat known in my little corner of Facebook for being very size and gender friendly with my scrundies underwear and am always willing to go on a fabric search to find that certain “gotta have it” print.

A bit about me – I’m a stay at home, homeschooling mom of 3. My oldest just graduated highschool and my youngest is 15. I was an army wife for the first 16 years of my marriage, and am completely fine being a retired army wife now! We’ve lived all over the US and ended up settling in rural Kansas when my husband retired. We bought a 110 year old farmhouse and enjoy raising our kids and animals on good old country dirt and sunshine. Besides sewing I also love to read, cook and occasionally try my hand at fiction writing.

I’ve been sewing for 35+ years – starting with lace up cards under the quilt frame with my grandmother at her quilting bee, thru finishing the stuffed animal project in 8th grade home economics in the first week when it was supposed to take all semester. I love a new challenge and frequently try new things to see if its something other people might be interested in. Any questions, concerns, project ideas or requests – please feel free to contact me here or on my facebook group page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/585582324922211
