Fun stuff!

Today was a fun filled day!! I started the day with some house work and then headed off to the shop. I got some super cute stuff too!! I was also in need of a new note book for my new ideas and got the cutest one I could find! Only $2.5o too!! Gosh I LOVE $2 shops! Are they just the greatest!? It is amazing what stuff you can find there!

I have also OFFICIALLY finished my full time day job. I still can't quite believe it. It doesn't feel real yet. I am really looking forward to heading off to Queensland to get some rest and see some family. I think I will then be ready to go on with bigger and better things with Odds & Blobs.

I will try and check in while I am away and let you know how it is all going.

*Please remember that any new orders which come through in the next week will not ship until May 12th when I return.

Just a short break

I thought I would just quickly update you all and let you know that not much will be happening in the shop over the next couple of weeks.

I have been really sick over the weekend and because I am pregnant I can't take anything for it so my recovery has been slow. This is my last week at my 'real' day job which is very exciting! After Thursday I am a free woman until baby junior comes! I will be spending most of this time working on new and exciting things for the shop. So I promise there will be lots happening in the middle of May.

Husband and I are also heading off to Queensland on the weekend so any orders place after that date be be sent out the week after however I will still be checking my emails.

Take care all!!

So much sewing to be done!

Isn't it amazing how you can go months and months with no motivation and then BOOM! There isn't enough time in your day to get everything done which you wanted to do? I have had a blast making new items for the shop on this long weekend. I have a bunch of coin pouches sitting here to be sewn up and listed. I didn't realised that I only had 1 coin pouch in the shop so I will be stocking up the shop next week with all new coin pouches! You can have a sneek peek above to see the first ones which will be listed. I have also started to use interfacing on all of my new pouches. This will make them a bit more sturdier.

I don't know if I mentioned it in my last post that I am going to be making up some travel wallets... Well I was hoping to have at least one made up by now but it has just taken so long to get the pattern right as I am making this all from scratch. It is 100% my own design. Hopefully I will have the prototype made up by the end of the week. It all depends on how much patience I have :) I have stopped and started the project about 10 times already!

Well things to sew and photos to take.

Happy Easter!

I cannot believe it! The Easter long weekend is here! I have started my morning early and finished all of the house work for the weekend so I can spend the WHOLE weekend making more new items for the shop!

I have listed the first batch of my 2 tone pencil cases. The top one is my fav :) Last night I also finished up some new passport covers, oh they are soooo cute!!! I am in love with them all. I will take photos of them today and add them to the shop.

I am also working on a new design for a travel wallet to hold your documents, boarding pass, a pen, coins and other goodies. I am super excited! I have been stuck in a rut for so long that it is nice to be able to have the motivation to want to make new stuff. I just wish the sales would pick up.... Oh well, it just means more time sewing instead of packing orders.

Stay tuned, I will be back soon!

My Cupcake Obsession

I have been busy loading up the shop with lots of new items with NEW cute fabric. My FAVOURITE at the moment is the Patchwork Cupcake fabric (in the above image). I can't help but want to make everything with this fabric!! I have some passport covers soon to be listed in the shop also with this fabric.

Make sure you check out the shop for all new pouches! More are being listed this week end along with some new 2 tone pencil cases.
