a small collection of tiny treasures November 25 2023

i am tucked away in my studio, buried in my threads and fabrics, making little treasures for the holidays. my hands are busy stitching
woolen amulet bags, heavily stitched hearts, and wool felt flower pins as gifts for my dearest friends and family, and i made a small collection of these tiny treasures for my shop. they feel meaningful, intimate, and a little bit precious. i find so much delight in the process from start to finish - sketching ideas, selecting color palettes, and slow stitching the designs.

this is a perfect weekend to stay cozy and stitch up handmade gifts for those you love. i encourage you to dig into your stash of remnants and make your own tiny treasures. you can also find plant-dyed fabrics, wool felt, and plant-dyed sashiko thread and silk ribbon in my shop if you need materials to launch your handmade holiday projects.

need some ideas to get started? i have a collection of over 40 free tutorials on my website, i hope you find some inspiration in these projects. happy stitching!

as always, thank you for supporting small makers and shopping handmade. i feel so lucky to be able to do this work.

PS.. myra the studio assistant is NOT helpful. she also loves the cute little balls of mohair/silk yarn that are all over the studio these days.
