I’ll be doing an embroidery even for the opening of the new Madewell store on Newbury Street in Boston on Thursday, 2/19 (today)! The address is 329 Newbury St. I’ll be there from 6 to 8pm, embroidering jeans for customers. Usually people stick to names or initials, but I can write whatever you want in 8 characters or under. I even started doing little flowers, bees and ladybugs. I try to accomodate, so pop by and see me! Be warned, they specialize in the skinny jeans. They’re great-looking and have lots of really fun, bright colors, but they’re – y’know – skinny. However, they also have great lightweight jersey scarves, really cute tops, sweaters and skirts. My favorite dress is from there, actually.

In other goings-on, I recently got some amazing fabric designed by Project Runway winner, Jay McCarroll. I love this stuff. Between the colors, the crazy creatures and the fact that they’re easy to mix-n-match, it’s like he made them just for me! Thank you, Jay! Let me know if I can make you a beer can outfit or something in return for your kindness.

And look at these little pink ants wandering around on some logs. And wee shroomies. Awwww . . .

I couldn’t wait to start playing with it and came up with my first batch of little snap wallets. They’re the perfect size for credit cards, business cards, or even knitting notions. I’m working on some iPhone sized ones. Since I don’t have an iPhone, I need to make one out of foam core first. I know, it’s sad.

Here are a few of the wallets. I’m really happy with them. They’re available in‚ the Bags and Pouches section of‚ Etsy shop. If you see some fabrics that you’d like to mix and match in my shop, let me know and I’ll whip up a custom one for you!

And here are some I made using some cute vintage fabric.

    Those little snappy pouches are adorable! Love the differently-colored linings!

    I love the snappy – the snappy is great for knitting because velcro is the work of the devil and yarn snags easily on zippers.

    Have fun tonight at madewell! Don’t wear out your cute fingers!

    dude. why didn’t you let us know that you’d be there last night! i would have stopped by to say hello. (madewell doesn’t make pants big enough for me for you to embroider)

    Very cool, the irony being I am going to repurose an old sheet since I can’t find any of my pillow cases.

      My hat is off to your astute command over this to-rvpbiaco!

    • Hi Page, I’ve been a lurker on your blog for a while but had to say that I’m just so sorry to read about your injury. I’m from Tempe and have been a fan supporting family/friends in the Ironman a few times and was looking forward to cheering you on as well! Also wanted to thank you for this site – I’m training for my first marathon in February and have gleaned a lot of information and motivation from your posts. Sending you and your ankle lots of positive energy!

    Love the fabrics.

    I’ve been out of work for awhile and the dog is looking tasty.
