Dear ole' Dad!

Here is just a smattering of the gut busting Father's Day cards I've got at the shop. In addition to kick ass cards, we've also got great gifts for Dad! Silk screened neck ties, duct tape wallets, silk screened shirts of all kinds and much more!

New goodies galore!

Forgive my absence on the blog as of late but I've been a busy bee! The ever awesome Roy Liang of Dumb Chauffeur has graciously decided to let me use his oh so clever silk screen designs which means I can now do custom shirts etc. with the Confusion Corner and Maiden Manitoba images!!
Of course I'll be putting said images on anything else I can such as dish towels, onesies, kids shirts, undies, bags, patches, aprons and whatever else I can find! Come on down to the shop to see all the new items I've made so far!
Pride Week is upon us and Sew Dandee has all the Pride gear you need! I'm working on some new pins and magnets that'll be ready for you come Thursday night. And I've made up some new pride themed cards too! Enjoy the festivities, everyone!

Bring on the heat!

So I've got a new project on my cutting table today! Last fall I decided I needed a pair of shorts to wear under my dresses when riding my bike to avoid any unwanted undie flashing. So I came up with a high waisted vintage inspired short that I've been wearing like crazy and loving them! Then this April I went to Las Vegas for the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend and I knew I'd need a 50s inspired suit to lounge by the pool in so I made myself THIS! After posting pics on the Facebook page I got a bunch of people asking when there would be some at the store. I promised I'd add the project to my to-do list and low and behold, I've actually started fulfilling that promise!
I made up a couple pair today and even cut out patterns in a few different sizes! My idea is to have a range of sizes made up on the racks and then I can custom make them on request in your size. Swim suits are so tricky to fit and you might be a small for the top and a large for the bottom. This way I can make you YOUR size! So, stay tuned for more and I do plan on making the multi-option reversible tube tops, too!

Momma's Day is around the corner!

So, it's that time of the year where Mom finally gets her due. Show that special lady in your life that has seen you at your worst and still loves you or that Wonder Woman who is always putting herself last and her family first. She deserves a little something be it a handmade, one of a kind purse, some luxurious body butter made with love and care right here in Winnipeg or that beautiful necklace made with an ornate serving spoon. You'll it all and more including the perfect card here at Sew Dandee! And remember we've got our summer hours going already so we're open late until 9pm on Thursdays and Fridays!
