Jacqueline, you ´ve been working ( sewing) a lot! I also do love making my own bias tape because of the same reason, the fabric options are immense in our own studio since you can use little pieces and it´s fantastic when you use three or four together, with colors that combine themselves, have you tried it?
Your pink dotted bias tape is so cute!
Have a wonderful week!


Great job in exploring...love what you said about no matter what medium, exploring something new will always inspire and enhance - so true! Your work is also so delicate and cute...love it! Also, making your own bias tape is better as you can matching your work perfectly.


When you really think about it, the sewing world is huge, with endless possibilities! That's why it's so grand and wonderful! I agree with you in making custom bias tape. The selection at the store is so small, and you can bring even more pizzazz to your project with your own fabric choices.

This is very special! I LOVED what you said: no matter what your medium of choice is, the exploration into something new will always inspires and enhances your favorite creative style.



Just lovely! Once again, thank you for inspiring me to create! I will make sure to let you know when I start on my new adventure of crafting! To me the more unique something is the better it is, craft or creation!

Have a wonderful rest of the week!


Don't you just love bias tapes?!! It's a bit fiddly to make one's own bias tapes, but very worth the effort as the options are endless. Your special new clutch bags sound wonderful--and fun to see this little peek of what you have progress--very exciting to see what's next! In the world of crafting, which is HUGE, sewing is definitely a world unto itself and with so much to explore. Have fun in your explorations, Jacqueline! Thank you so much for your lovely comments at my place yesterday. I hope to stop by again here before we leave for our trip this weekend. Happy Days, dear friend :o) ((LOVE & HUGS))


ooh, this little pouch does look like something special, I can't wait to see where you are going with this! I really like the simplicity of the black embroidery on white with the touch of pink-polka-dots around the edge. What a great touch. xo

Very Sweet! I love the new design.

I agree with you about bias tape, the pre-made tapes in the stores are a little dull and never a perfect match.

And it's really not all that hard to make your own tape. Once you learn how, your options are without limit!

Can't wait to see your shop updates in the new year!

It is so true, that trying something new is a way to nurture your creativity. That is one of the reasons I hate to think that I have a style when it comes to my work.

This looks so pretty Jacqueline! I love the embroidery and the bias tape is great!! You are very talented. I only wish I knew how to sew! Can't wait for the update in the new year.
Also, I received my teaspoon and it so pretty! Thanks for including the green tea! I can't wait to sit down and enjoy a nice hot cup! Thanks for sending it all the way here!

How fun to be in an experimental phase! Trying new things and learning! And your photos are so beautiful!, I bet you're happy with your new camera!


Never knew what bias tape was before reading this post. guess you do learn something new everyday!


Oh, your new project is so delightful! I long to see more of it... I think making your own bias tape is a great idea. Your options are endless!


I really appreciate how you never stop with the status quo, that you always want to take your craft to newer, more personal levels.

How do you make your own bias tape, may I ask?


I love the polka dot bias tape! And that embroidery too, lovely. Love what you said about exploration into something new will inspire your favored medium. I so agree!


Oh my goodness..these are amazingly sweet.

I just wanted to thank you for your caring words that you left on my blog the other day...we so miss our Rosie but your love has helped me so so much to carry on. Thank you my dear friend. xoxoxo
