The NEW Fanny Pack!

I thought I'd throw in some patches of my super fun fabrics in this new batch of hip pouches. Great for packing light for a day or night on the town!

Let's get cookin'!

So, my latest project is taking vintage half aprons and adding a dish towel panel to the top, silk screened with one of my clever images, thus making it a full super cool apron! Check out the first two I've made up!

I've got 8 more ready to put together and they should all be on the racks by the end of this week!

I also got a lovely package from Barb of Spiro Creations out in New Zealand yesterday. She sent us some new leather medicine bags and some great new fringe purses in the most beautiful colors. Come check them out!

Just a reminder to those of you yearning to learn some sewing skills, Melanie of Sew Free Winnipeg is having her first get together at her new studio tonight!

Wow, is this ever a week for new goodies at Sew Dandee! I don't even know where to begin!

Ok, well last night I found some time to silk screen some new towels with the West Broadway image on it so we're stocked up on those along with the Wolseley and Osborne Village images on towels AND men's and women's shirts.

I also screened a bunch more kid's Manitoba pride shirts. And that reminds me! Roy of Dumb Chauffeur brought in more men's Winnipeg Beach, Grand Beach and Confusion Corner shirts along with some kid's shirts, too!

Hmmmm what else?? Oh, the Dani Press cards finally made it from Vancouver and they're wonderful! A perfectly sweet balance to my sour cards, I think. She's got some for birthday, weddings, bon voyage and some no-particular-reason cards that I really adore. Come check them out!

And just in time for this hot, sunny summer weather we're having I got in a whole schwack of new sunglasses!

They're all $12 a pair or buy two pair for $20! Come load up!

Oh, and I had customer come in this week looking for a cool fanny pack so I whipped one up for her and cut out another for the store. It's been a while since I've made any new ones so stay tuned for more with some of the fun fabrics I've been working with lately! Here's one with an adorable reworked, silk screened dress I made last week!

And for those of you that don't already know, Sew Dandee's own Jade has been a busy girl making some fantastic jewelry. Her hottest sellers here at the store have been her wonderful and unique feather earrings. If you haven't checked them out yet, now is the time!

I think that just about covers it. Though I do feel like I'm forgetting something. Just to be safe, why don't you just come down to the store and see our grand handmade items in person! Our gently worn clothing section is also chock full of fantastic summer threads! We hope to see you all soon! And don't forget to 'like' us on our NEW Facebook page! Thanks!

Here it is! The ULTIMATE Winnipeg pride shirt! I hope to have a bunch more men's and women's shirts screened up tonight in time for you Folk Festers (and non-Folk Festers) who are coming into the city to hit up your favorite Winnipeg spots. Such as Sew Dandee! ;)

I've also got some fantastic new silk screened shirts from a couple in Florida. The line is called Dark Cycle Clothing and they specialize in putting random animals on bikes! I've got dinosaurs, wolves and foxes in both guy's and girl's tops so come on down and check them out!

And for those of you wanting to get your monster making on, I've got a workshop scheduled for Tuesday July 12th. Just come down to Sew Dandee and register before 6pm on Monday!
