Stop by Sewfunky and see whats in bloom!

There is three lovely styles to choose from in super cute designer prints.

I think today was the most beautiful first day of spring ever in Ontario, all this fresh air and sunshine has inspired me so much!

End of winter round up!

March 10, 2012

I am so excited to be part of a Canadian Artisan Feature over at Little Wool Maus!  Stop by her lovely blog to read more about natural family living, motherhood, delicious recipes and amazing sewing projects.  She just gave birth to her second baby, so exciting!  She also wrote about her Sewfunky Sling when she had her first baby, such beautiful pictures!

This is the time of year where I get organized for upcoming shows,  just 5 weeks until Stitch ‘n’ Kitsch!  Hard to image we are that close to Spring, I’m so excited!  I’m picking out so many new fabrics for bonnets and sweet dresses!  There is also a bunch of new sling prints available for 2012 with more to come.  Just waiting to hear back from another show I applied to.

We also have lots of excitement in our own backyard, now that the foundation has been mended we can start some serious gardening.  Last summer our whole garden was chaos and concrete, with many hours of digging, jackhammering, wheelbarrowing to make it ready to move forward.  Now with a dry basement our gardening ideas are no longer on hold.   Herbs, lettuce, kale, tomatos, peas and radishes, so excited!  I hope my irises and strawberries survived being in pots all winter!

Yesterday we finally restocked all the Baltic Amber Necklaces, lots to choose from – and more are arriving next week, matching necklaces for Mama and baby bracelets/anklets too!  They go fast, so if you have a teething baby send me an email!

Well I’m off to sew, trying to get the jump on Spring, it will be here before you know it!

Holiday Doll Contest

December 9, 2011

Visit the Sewfunky FaceBook Page to find out about our new Holiday Contest!

Sewfunky Waldorf Dolls – Find Yours!
It’s hard for me to beleive I made all of these dolls!  Some of them never got photographed because it was such a rush to get them out the door.
  Some that belonged to my children or nieces and nephews aren’t in this collage either. 
Do you see a doll that belongs to your family?
 

Dolly Making

September 12, 2011

This is a sweet Waldorf Pixie Doll I finished this week!

She has beautiful Fair Trade Hand Spun hair in 100% wool with golden skin and blue eyes.  She’s wearing a handknit wool dress and booties made with hand-dyed wool with sweet sage green hemp pants.  She is carrying her matching pixie baby in a Sewfunky PandaWrap made with silky soft bamboo jersey.

So many holiday dolls on my to-do list once fall arrives then it’s time to cozy up on the couch with my hand work basket in the evening!

Summer

August 9, 2011

With all the mayhem of summer I haven’t had a chance to even think about posting!  We have been so busy with so many different things its been hard to keep up.

Our family had a great time at the Hillside Festival at Guelph Lake in July.  It’s always nice to see old friends and meet new ones and talk to customers in person and see their sweet babies!  It was super hot that weekend and we ate a lot of organic ice cream – YUM 

I made lots of lovely dresses and bonnets for the little girls.  Plus I also made a bunch of wrap skirts, halter tops and dresses for women.  It was really nice to get back into clothing making and get creative.

I feel so lucky to have caught a bit of this performance on Sunday night:
Seun Kuti and Egypt 80

It was amazing!

I also got to see a tiny bit of Shad perform but it was next to impossible to even get into the tent because it was packed!

I also snuck away from the booth and caught a bit of Ganga Giri :

 

 

 

 

Spring Cuteness

March 28, 2011

Sewfunky Sun Bonnet

I love when my customers send in pictures of their sweet babies, even more amazing when their Mamas are talented photographers.  You can see more amazing work from GoldSpun Photography on her blog.

I have been making these Sun Bonnets for 18 years now, a classic ‘Little House on the Prairie’ Style but with modern retro prints.  They really are the perfect hat, lots of sun protection, stay on well and super cute!
