Sew Bee Mine on Etsy

Trying to add new things each day, until I can get back out in person

Latest endeavors are printing my own images onto fabric then machine quilting and embellishing with beads, sequins and decorative stitching.

Virgin of Guadalupe 12" Hanging Doll Ornament


I have been in love with the image of The Virgin of Guadalupe ever since seeing her while traveling throughout Mexico and Central America in the 70's.

Here is a 12" Virgin of Guadalupe Hanging Doll Ornament from a recent series of one of a kind dolls created with Robert Kaufman fabric. She can be purchased on Etsy 

I will be making more of these for upcoming spring events. Stay tuned for that.

Paper Dolls with Felt Christmas Tree Dresses

Mixed medium.....Paper doll with 
felt and sparkly netting Christmas tree dress.
This is a variation on an ornament made many years ago. 
LOVE that running feather stitch on the new sewing machine! 
A couple of these were made as gifts 
but next year will crank out a batch to sell.

Paper House Luminaries

 So happy that all the Christmas Cats found good homes, and a check for ALL the proceeds went to PACS! 

Now busy making tiny houses with LED votives inside to deliver to my local friends. Have also mailed some hither and yon. This one was made with handmade batik paper. Love the way the light shines through the wax areas, but the paper is a bit flimsy.

Double sided scrapbook cardstock makes more sturdy houses.

The PDF pattern was downloaded from Catheholden a few years ago, and just now getting around to making them. Have made about 30 so far. On a tiny house roll.

I was using the little clothespins but found them so fragile, easy to fall apart when opening and closing. So modified by punching tiny holes in the seam on either side of the top roof panel and threading with ribbon. I knotted both ends of the ribbon so it wouldn't come back through the punched holes when opening and closing the house to turn the light on inside. 

Ta Da!
