SewBaby Crafts Current Merchandise

Hello all!

This year, my family is living in Japan, and as such I have access to different materials than usual currently.  Therefore I am taking a break from sewing felt headbands (I just can't find the kind of felt I  like!) and am focusing on my portable coloring wallets and occasionally other items.  Please visit the "Sewbaby Crafts" page on my blog to see the products I have currently available.

Eventually, I will add products to my Etsy page for easier shopping. Please contact me if you have any questions!  Thanks for checking in!

Oh, and for my Tokyo friends:

I am selling my coloring wallets on March 9th and 10th at Willowbrook International School's annual Charity Sale.  Here's the flyer with more information:

A Good Time of Year for Orange and Black!

Ok Beavers fans, I didn't forget about you!

I must say, I couldn't really picture an orange-and-black headband on a little girl.  But then I made this sample, and I'm so excited to show you how it turned out!

I think the color combo looks so bright and fun!  And even if you don't root for the Beavs--this would be a great headband to get in the Halloween spirit :)

This exact headband is available (it's a size Medium, 6-24 months), or I can make one just for you in any size.  If you like the idea but different colors, let me know--all available colors are listed on the "custom headband" page!  The same Sports Fan deal I mentioned in my last post applies--all sports color sunburst headbands ordered before the end of September are only $12 including shipping!  Just send me an email at sewbabycrafts at gmail dot com to order!

What's Your Team?

I just got to do this fun custom order for a friend who is a die-hard Ducks fan:

Which got me would orange and black look?

What other team colors would make an awesome headband? Now, I'm not a sports nut myself, so I don't even know which teams are which most of the time, but I'd be happy to help YOU (or your little one) show their team colors!  Until the end of September, all custom orders for the above sunburst design with your team's colors will be only $12, including shipping!  Please allow up to a week for custom orders to be finished/shipped (although I'm usually faster than that.)

Robot and Owl applique designs

I had a couple of little gifties to deliver last week, and here's what I came up with:

For the fourth birthday party:

new Old Navy tee shirt with owl applique (button eyes and rick-rack legs), and a coordinating stuffed owl

For the new baby:

Personalized robot applique upcycled onesie and coordinating lightning bolt hat

I thought the stuffed owl was a fun addition to a clothing gift, which some kids might love but others might not find very fun.  I'd be happy to attempt coordinating stuffed creatures with some of the appliqued designs--just ask!

But you don't need to be limited to these colors--adding baby pink or burgundy to the mix would also look great for Valentine's Day, or go wild with any color combination for a double-heart headband that she can wear all year round!  All available felt colors are shown below.
