Pandoraspocks Art - Sonia Di Marco

Have you noticed coloring books are no longer just for children, but  they have now become very popular with adults?

Above are only a few of the coloring pages that are available for sale on a new Etsy Shop.  The shop is called  PandoraspocksArt. and the patterns can be purchased at a minimal cost.   The shop is owned and operated  by a very talented woman named Sonia Di Marco. All designs are created by her.

The patterns can be easily downloaded, printed and colored.  Along with the purchase, Sonia has offered a free personalization of each with a name, as per your request.  This can usually be done within a couple of hours of being purchased.

Sonia lives in Melbourne Australia.  She specifically would like to create and publish adult coloring books, as well as designer fabric.  Being an avid sewer, myself,  and having seen Sonia's work, I can testify to the unique and lovely fabric which will be created through her passion.

Please check out Sonia's new shop on Etsy.  Enjoy!

I've just completed two custom orders for the Sew Together Bag (3 zip pockets).  This will be it for now.  I'm going to be making some other bags (Swoon), as well as making a few using the tutorials I am selling on Craftsy.

My Carry-It-All Hipster Bag would look beautiful in the cork fabric that is so popular now.  I'm not sure of the color yet, but maybe pink or purple.

Anyway, for now here's the Sew Together Bags!  The fabric the customer chose is just beautiful!

Dart Diagram and Measurements - Taylor Unisex Bag

The measurements aren't on the pattern for the darts, so here they are!  This is a pattern by Huff n' Cuff.

A Baby Gift!

Well, we've had two new additions to our family since December...both beautiful little girls.  One is named Hallie, and the other Sloane!  One was born in December and the other in April, my great grandchild, & my niece's baby.

I've made a few quilts, burp cloths, painted a dresser, and still have curtains to make for the nursery.  I recently made my niece's baby a dress as well, so thought I would post it.  Quite a change from bags and wallets I must say.

I've made this little dress before, but not this small.  It's like it could fit a doll, so I hope it fits Sloane. Oh, she's the most precious little one with a turned up nose, chubby cheeks!  ADORABLE!!

The little tag in the center of the sash is quite small, but I love the saying!  One of the ladies posted it when I showed the baby's pic on FB.  I couldn't resist putting it on her dress.  I just used a fabric sheet and my Word program..quite easy to make!

The Adalyn Dress pattern can be purchased HERE.     Have a great day!

This is my niece's baby, Sloane!  Isn't she sweet!  The dress fits!
