The same, but different

Kitchen Towels with Split Damask Design
 I mentioned in a previous post that customers often ask for items to be the same, but different. Here is a perfect example of how that is achieved. Here the same designed was used for both towels, yet a simple change of fabric & thread colors make them look very different. Do you have a favorite? I like 'em both!

"Alike, but different"

Child's Tote/Church Bag
When cutomers order multiples of an item, they often tell me they want them 'Alike, but different'. Well, Honey, with  my stash of fabrics, thread and ribbon, that is not a problem here in the Basement! Made these precious Church bags for twin girls...what a sweet gift! Would love to stitch up one for you! http://www.basementbags.com/Child's%20tote%20with%20design.htm

Blogger is being a pain today...anyone else having an issue?

Good stuff

Weather was crazy around here last week....lots of rain {lots & LOTS of rain}. We still managed to get in some good boat/water time at the lake and Mr. Sun totally faked me out on Saturday...hiding behind those clouds and BURNED me up! Nothing in the medicine cabinet was doing the trick, so I picked up a bottle of Unburn {great product name & description of what it does}. Really is good stuff and it really worked for me. Hope you won't need it this summer but if you do it's sooooo worth the $8

Child's Apron

Today I'm working on a set of aprons for my friend {and great customer!} Beth.  She selected "Berry Sweet Alphabet" and gave me creative freedom to select the fabrics...really happy with the finished product. You can get one for your little kitchen helper/artist here: http://www.basementbags.com/Apron-child.htm

It's raining AGAIN today. Gotta love the dog days of summers in the South!
