Sew Bee Mine at Pottstown FARM on Sept 27, 2018

It's a busy fall for Sew Bee Mine. 
Next stop is Thursday Sept 27th at Pottstown FARM
Running a bit low on inventory 
so spending this week making new aprons. 
I did stop for awhile to make an apron for 
upcoming fundraiser in October. 
A vintage linen dish towel with clocks on it 
was the inspiration for this one. 
It will be part of their silent auction.

Fun Zippered Pouches from Sew Bee Mine

I took a class at The Quilt Block a couple of weeks ago to learn how to put a zipper into a pouch. It was easy in the class because we just used one piece of fabric so there was no right side or wrong side when putting the zipper in....

The first attempt at home included patchwork on the outside vintage cotton on the inside. It was way more complicated and first off resulted in zipper on the inside when done, so had to throw it away. Then came the next one, had to do the zipper over TWICE, sewed the bee on upside down, topstitching on zipper was off......kept having to fix it, cut out the zippers. The pouch got smaller and smaller. LOL! 

Final product looks pretty good. Next one hopefully will go a lot more smoothly. Need more zippers!

Christmas in July at Pottstown FARM July 26th

OK, so everyone keeps asking why there's a snowman in my back seat. Couldn't resist the little fellow, only five bucks at Goodwill! He will be part of the decor for Sew Bee Mine booth from now through the winter. He needs a little apron!

First stop will be this coming Thursday July 26th at Pottstown FARM, for Christmas in July. Until then he enjoys riding around in the blistering heat, cool as a cucumber, looking out the window.

Last year holiday aprons were a big hit and didn't have enough for people who wanted them, and just not gonna let that happen again.
Here is the first apron of the holiday season.......This one has quite a bit going on......keep in mind that the mannequin is naked so everything you see here is all apron. Such as embroidered bib, sheer organza/linen overlay with poinsettia pocket, tropical green and red cotton/rayon underskirt with beaded embellishments, and bottomed off with a leopard ruffle. The neck and straps are made with pine cone print. This is clearly and without a doubt a one of a kind wearable art apron. Fa la la la la la la la la! Ta Da!

Also made a batch of quilted potholders.......
Sew Bee Mine is right underneath the main sign for the market. 

Hope to see you there.
