New dragon colors

I’ve added a couple of site-specific dragons: a mallard (yes, not emerald, really mallard this time) with foil dots and metallic-thread wing embroidery, and a lime of which some have an embroidered shamrock. In the future, if you want updates on things that are added to the shop, that’ll happen in a newsletter. You can […]

Changes continue

Still working on merging the sites – you may have noticed some shopping-cart bits showing up on this site. I’m decommissioning shop-dot silverseams.com and files-dot silverseams.com, so some links are currently broken (I think the last count was 24). The drama about Etsy’s advertising changes has made me wonder a bit about whether I should […]

Server moved!

Got some cleanup to do (especially over on shop.silverseams.com where I broke a couple things) but I’m off WordPress hosting and everything is on the same (virtual) machine. Once I have all the computer bits working, I’ll be putting a couple new colors in the shop… including actual mallard (with sparkles). Part of getting the […]

That is a pretty good milestone considering most of what I do is computer-assisted conventional sewing with a much lower stitch count. But once in awhile I mix my metaphors, and the butterfly wings on the fairy dragons are probably my favorite. This one’s in […]

Dragon taggin’ day

I’m now up to, I think, three wrong-color shipments. After the next-to-last one, I made myself a reference sheet. And then I shipped a teal dragon instead of a peacock because my brain just went “yep everyone is ordering the latest color” and didn’t even look at the reference sheet. So the time has come […]

Last-minute Valentine dragon

I’ve been a little quiet lately because I was bound and determined to actually finish one of the art dragons. And I did it, albeit a little later than good marketing would prescribe – Valentine items should be listed in mid-January. I picked up a couple colors of Ben Textiles Royal Velvet that looked like […]

More interchangeable purses

I made another hipster bag for my MIL’s birthday. This one isn’t my Basic Hipster, but the Lots of Pocketsā†Ŗ from SewCanShe. Same approximate size, and I just left out the integral flap and installed snaps right before closing up the turning opening in the lining. I used a pre-made strapšŸ“¦ because I didn’t have […]
