Handmade Goods

Along with making new handmade goods, I’m still trying to catch up on my sleep from the Vintage Marketplace.  It seems I’m dragging in no time these days and need a nap – or an early bedtime.  Have you noticed I just can’t get back to my daily blogging schedule?  I’m really trying this week but no promises!

I thought I’d share a few things I’ve made in the past couple weeks.  I never really stopped to catch up after The Vintage Marketplace, first it was the garage sale I have every Spring and Fall with a friend – immediately after the Flea.  Then it was on to some custom orders I’d been putting off while I was getting ready for the Flea.  And back to homeschooling every day – cause that is what is what I am supposed to do since I have taken on the responsibility of making sure my girls learn how to read write and do Math!

Just last weekend I hauled a load of my handmade goods to a lovely little shop in Pickerington, Ohio.  I’ll share more later this week about the shop, which is so totally delightful you will want to go see it for yourself.  Since I already had an idea in mind for making a square pouffe I decided to try it out for this event.  It turned out HUGE!  22 inches square – er cubed!  I love the neutral Union Jack and may try to produce some more of these.  It sold so if you want one contact me about making another one!

Union Jack pillows.  The owner of the shop had ordered six of these so I happily obliged.  If you want one you can purchase one at the shop or contact me about making you a custom one.  I can do any color combination.  If you want one of these and the shop is not local to you, I can ask them if they would ship it to you – price in the shop is $49 and includes the insert.

I have the best friends!  Out shopping and they see something I might want to repurpose?  They text me or just get it and drop it by!  Belle of Belle Hess Photography sent me a pic of two vintage ottomans she had found at Goodwill.  I was so glad she did because they were perfect for making slip covers.  This one is covered with some fabric from IKEA and detailed with a huge pink button that I’ve had on hand for a few years.  I don’t seem to have a photo of the other one from my real camera.  I have one on my phone and I shared it on Instagram last week.

Bottom pouffe was leftover from the Flea but the top one is new.  Burlap printed with gold dots – wouldn’t this be so festive for Christmas?!  And it adds a fun bit of bling for all year-round.  Gold is fast becoming a very popular ‘in’ thing these days.  If you want one I can make one for you or if you sew and want to make one for yourself the pattern is located on my sidebar – it’s still free as of now, but that will be changing as of the first of 2014.  Fabric can be purchased at Jo-Ann Fabrics.

I’ll be sharing more pics of our set-up at this shop, all the cool stuff my friend Marcy took along, and lots of great pics of the shop too!

    In between stenciling letters on a sign I’m reading blogs. You’re tired because you’re trying to do too much. That’s your bodies’ way of letting you know. You’re not 20 anymore. I asked me doc when I was pregnant for 4th. and he asked me how old I was, not quite 30 then. He said that’s how our bodies tell us we’re coming down with something or we’re doing too much. Take it little easier.
    The new shop sounds heavenly and I’m loving those ottomans, and/or poufs. They look great. Love the pillows but think I’ll have to make my own,(you know, lack of that nasty green stuff). Will look forward to seeing photos of the shop and your space. Happy week

  3. Jill- You do such beautiful work. I bet you are tired and you have been going like a house afire since last summer if I remember correctly. Take some time to catch up with yourself. Blogging will be here waiting for you when you get back- xo Diana

  5. Me too, I love your pillows! Such talent!!!!

  6. I like the gold dotted pouffe! It would be adorable for Christmas!

    The pillows are awesome too!

  7. You are one busy mama for sure! I love everything you are doing…and I’ve never been to Pickerington but I know where it is! I have some of that burlap with the gold dots…love it. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it yet but I’ll come up with something. I’m starting to sew Christmas things already so maybe I can use it for that. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I sure hope you get some rest~~Ann

  8. So talented! I love all your goodies; but the Union Jack pouf really caught my eye! I have a couple of poufs I scooped up for pennies with the goal of re-covering them; this gave me the inspiration to get it done! Thanks so much for sharing!

  9. I especially love the square pouffe (and the pillows too!), just wondering what did you stuff the pouffe with so that it keeps it’s shape so well?


  1. […] vacation but the pics I edited last night are the ones from the shop in Pickerington, Ohio where I took my wares a couple of weeks ago.  Feather Your Nest shop is so cool and amazing I have to share it with you.  If you like to […]
