Sew Bee Mine Phoenixville Farmer's Market

Fabrics from all over the world inspire me every day, 
such as African dashiki body and tail in this wandering merman
and the owl doll using vintage saris from India

 Vintage Hawaiian Barkcloth Apron
Two Dashikis and Dutch Wax Batiks were used to create the apron on the left and a tea towel from Ireland was the inspiration for the one on the right.

Carpet bags using vintage needlepoints from Israel. 

The big outer pocket on this carpet bag is Hmong hand embroidery from Cambodia

Mexican Embroidery on Half Apron

                 Love using American vintage cross stitch samplers to make aprons.

Here's a dress with batiks from India

It's still a bit chilly out here on the East Coast but spring is just around the corner. I've been busy during the winter months building inventory for upcoming shows.
I will be back at my stomping grounds

Winter for Sew Bee Mine

I pretty much spend the winter making things to sell in the spring and summer. Here are some of the latest... on a giant tote bag kick at the moment. I love all these vintage cross stitches and embroidered pieces that are being used to make outside pockets.

Giant Totes have spectacular lined outer pockets, are lined inside and have 3 lined pockets inside, plus a loop to hold keys.
To learn more about them, see more pictures and to purchase click HERE for my store.

Stay tuned for some totes using spectacular vintage needlepoints! Just waiting for a batch to be delivered from Israel.

Also loving making aprons with vintage linen tea towels and cross stitches. Here are a couple of them. Also available in the STORE.
