Attache Cases by Sketchbook

I really cannot believe that I just now found this magnificent Etsy Seller, Sketchbook.
They create handsewn bags from wool (felt maybe). Their bags are super super durable looking, and just plain beautiful all around!!

Their gray wool attache case is one of my faves. I love their subtle use of leather next to the wool too! See their shop today!! (CLICK HERE)

Let's Share Tips!

This amazing woman, Natalie Jost, has a website full of beautiful ideas and tips on how to take pretty photos. "Not make them look like a monkey took them:, she says :)
She has started a new line of organic fabric that she sells in small doses on her newest Etsy site HERE (Olive Textiles).

Also, her site I found first features a beautiful array of stationary, gift tags, and other things that make wrapping gifts and signing cards a fun job. Please visit that site on Etsy HERE (olivemanna)...

She also has a site

Thimble and Acorn

This woman, Thimble and Acorn, makes beautiful and very affordable frocks and jewelry. I would be honored to have the skills she does! It looks like she designs each and every garment and sews it up nice and pretty! She uses stretchy jersey fabrics accented with cottons. The bases of the dresses are mostly solid colors, and does plaids and other patterns for accents.

Please visit her Etsy shop HERE.
