Over the past several months I've been mulling over various ideas for a web-based business. While I still haven't finalized my plans and ideas, I am experimenting with creating complete crazy quilt kits, using my own floral fabric as well as hand-dyed fabrics and ribbon from various sources, plus beads, threads, etc.
These kits would be intended for people just getting into crazy quilting, who don't have stashes built up, or who don't want to do the designing or color choosing, but want the fun of the sewing and beading.
I would include patterns and stitch guides as well....
This kit here is actually a birthday present for my niece. She really enjoyed working on her little jewelry pouch while we were in Michigan together, and asked for another project. So I created the "B" this morning and printed it up....then pieced a large block--really a small wall-hanging--and gathered her embellishment materials. I hope she enjoys working on this! I LOVED putting it together.
Here is her "B"...
...and here is her project, with lots of trim, beads, and threads to choose from. I did fuse some lace around the central letter because, well, I just wanted to!
I would be willing to create custom kits for sale while I am working out the bugs of my commercial ideas...already pieced, and with embellishment supplies included for you to use....so if you are interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll discuss size, color, and price....it won't be inexpensive but it will be special!
