Pillows are back in stock!!

Being on maternity leave has been great, I put my etsy shop in vacation mode and kicked my butt into gear preparing for our new baby’s arrival. I was pretty dang sure I was going to have this baby early so I stressed myself into super nesting mode and got everything for baby done… and then… the waiting started. We still aren’t at my official due date yet, but with the house all ready to go I started getting bored.

So I made a deal with myself. I could list things in my shop that were ready to ship and no custom orders. That, my friends, is how I have spent the last 3 days at my sewing machine (in between walks to try to get baby to drop and bouncing on my birthing ball) and was able to pull my shop our of vacation mode even though we are expecting a baby in the next week or two.

Since colleges all over the US are about to start up I figured I would focus on my sorority themed pillows. I currently have pillows that represent 4 of the many houses in the greek system. The next two days I plan on designing at least two more so that I can represent some more of the Greek System.

Sorority Pillows

These pillows make fantastic gifts for your Little Sis or for your daughter away at college who has successfully gone through recruitment and her pledge period! Houses represented here are Alpha Phi, Delta Gamma (DG), Phi Sigma Sigma (Phi Sig), and Kappa Alpha Theta (Theta). Coming soon Gamma Phi Beta (Gamma Phi)!

Expanding my Greek Market

My anchor pillows have been a fairly successful item in my etsy shop and I have sent quite a few of them to sorority houses across the US. Being an alumni of a sorority myself I thought that I should create a pillow for the ladies of Phi Sigma Sigma, the sorority that helped my 4 years in college to be some of the best years of my life. I have more plans to represent more sororities in my shop but I think that these will be the last two pillows posted in my shop until February as I have two ribbon rose bouquet orders to fill.

In addition to the pillows I am also participating in a block of the month quilt project hosted by Jennifer over at Sewhooked called Paper Piecing Vintage. My background fabric is Kona Solids Bone and my fabrics are all vintage inspired. Here are my fabrics and my finished January block, it’s called The King’s Crows.
