Spotlight- LaCartera Kids Model


Well my grandson is finally here and has had a chance to snuggle with his sleepy boo-boo blanket.  He’s so adorable that after I took pictures of him I wanted to snuggle too, so it’s been really tough to continue with this blog-post. His great-grandmother knitted this beautiful blanket that’s absolutely gorgeous, I think I need her to knit a scarf or…

Sunday Spotlight – Red Tropical Explosion


The Red Tropical Explosion handbag is one of my favorites!  I created this beauty last year with a lovely floral textile design, vinyl and a red color fabric.  Since I had an Etsy order to fill, I thought I’d share the finish product in a Sunday Spotlight post. My mixed media arts friends inspired me to mix it up a bit. …

The baby hat and slippers are complete!  I did learn how to make a rose for the hat to add a special touch. Now I need to deliver this set to its new home.   I hope mommy will be happy. Stay tuned there’s more to come from LaCartera!

Sleepy Boo-Boo Bear Crochet Applique


I’m so excited that I get to celebrate my first grandson’s baby shower today!  I started the crochet blanket months ago along with a hat.  I really had high hopes with creating a Noah’s Ark applique on the blanket, but my schedule and fear (mostly fear) stopped me in my tracks. So I crocheted a Sleepy Boo-Boo Bear…

Sewing Addiction?


I think I have a sewing addiction! I finished the three “Flouncy Bouncy Skirts” by So-Sew-Easy and now I’m ready to make one of her dress designs and another cute skirt. As soon as I finished the last skirt I started looking for fabric… It’s official I’m addicted! I love this skirt, because you can dress it…

Whimsical Owl Pillow


I fell in love with this whimsical owl in Malaysia and she’s been staring at me for nearly a year.  I’m the first to admit that I am not a painter, and when I tried my hand at the batik technique I was hooked.  So when I was asked to create an owl pillow for…

The Clutch Wallet – Is it a Hit or Miss? Fab or Drab?


The hand-painted fabric and decorative stitches add a creative touch to this unique design.  The clutch wallet gives you two uses in one small package. I think it’s perfect to carry alone, and fits nicely inside of your tote bag.  What do you think?  Is it a Hit or Miss? Fab or Drab? I combined three textile painting techniques to create the fabric design.  I used two complementary…
