New in the shop, coffee dyed crinkled seam binding! It still has a coffee scent, as well as some lovely spots of darker brown where the coffee pooled a little more which gives it a slightly distressed look. You may find a tiny bit of sparkle here and there in this seam binding. It is wrapped with a bit of hand stamped muslin and an arms length of black and white baker's twine.
Crinkled seam binding is fun for both prim (primitive) & vintage style gift wrapping, crafting and decor. It would be lovely to use in wedding decorations and favors. I'm offering it in 5 yard increments but am happy to discuss custom lengths, as well.
I have some pretty new crinkled seam binding that I dyed blue with hints of indigo & purple. I will be listing it soon.

I've been in jewelry making mode. It's new for me but I'm really enjoying making pretty necklaces & whatnot. Most recently, I made a bracelet & a necklace. This time, they are for me as it seems that most of what I make goes to someone else. I made them with antiqued copper & Swarovski "Elements" (crystals & pearls).

Following up on my last post Can you keep a Secret. I gave the boxed & wrapped necklace to my mom, she smiled, shook the box & said, "I think I know what this is..." A lovely "thank you" when she opened the box. She hadn't seen my post about it or the pictures thankfully. Haha! Lesson learned.
