SweetShop Creations @ the Dam House Craft Fair!

Pins and cowls and jewelry, oh my...
Greetings SweetShoppers! Today was a pretty good day in our universe--not only does the world seem to be not ending, but we joined up with fellow yarn crafters Knitella to stock a table at the Dam House Craft Fair!

Whew, that was a long sentence. In contrast, it was a sadly short day--we had loads of fun chatting to folks in Astley, sold a few things, and enjoyed the beautiful and historic Dam House. Definitely check out that link. I was impressed and charmed by the historic manor house turned community center, and I will definitely be visiting again.

We hooked up with some cool crafters and even cooler people at the fair, but a picture is worth a thousand words, so here are a few of our snaps for the day!

As always, you can check out the SweetShop HERE and Knitella HERE. Loads more coming in the shop and on the blog, so click and subscribe!

Product Swap: Clutch from Sewgrown.blogspot.com

SweetShop Creations Cowl, thrifted Lacoste sweater, and the cutest little clutch from Sew Grown

So way back in the annals of time(December to be more exact) I came across the fabulous sewing tutorial blog Sew Grown. The owner, Steffanie, makes these gorgeous handmade clutches and hosted a giveaway around the holidays. You know I was on that like white on rice, right?
In any case, I felt like since I also make things, we should do a swap! So I sent her one of these...
Spring Fling! No, really, that's what it's called...

...and she sent me the gorgeous clutch pictured above. Am I styling with my pastels and spring manicure? Yes I am!
In any case, the idea was, we'd swap, we'd blog about what we swapped, but then she moved to a new house and I moved to a new country and we're both really busy...so uh, yeah. Six months later, I am blogging the fabulous clutch. Forgive me Steffanie. Will it help if I tell everybody how much I LOVE this clutch?

No really, I love it. I'm not a clutch woman, I'm more of a big old bag that can carry an iron woman(as seen in my fashion blog). But Steffanie's clutch is just SO cute and pretty and bright...I love it!

It's a bright floral print with a gorgeous royal purple lining to keep all your stuff safe...and it carries quite a bit. I took this with me on a quick jaunt the other day and it easily held my phone, keys, big ol' wallet, lip gloss, and a pack of gum. Couldn't fit my iron in there though, although I was tempted to try. 

It's also got a nifty kiss lock that stays shut and doesn't slip open. Floral print, cute shape, lining, kiss lock(officially my favorite name for a lock)...it's like the biggest cutest girliest change purse ever. I love incorporating it into new outfits.

While I'm being a gushy girl, let me show you my favorite part of the fabric...
Yes, ladies and gents! It's a bird! A tiny cute bird flying away from a Barbie guitar into a field of blue...
Anyway, Steffanie's wonderful blog with loads of good sewing and helpful tutorials and cute family and feminine style flourishes can be found HERE. I can't sew at all, but someday when I learn, I will be allllll over this super cute belt tutorial. Go visit Sew Grown!

Work In Progress:Boatneck

This is almost finished. Should be up in the shop by next week.

Two quick notes about this one; 
1)It's made out of EXACTLY one skein of yarn.
2)Look, Ma! No sewing! Worked entirely in the round, bottom up. There's a couple of stitches in each shoulder, but that's it, really.
