the bump

You may remember a couple of weeks ago when I was cutting out triangles until my hands hurt.  I think I ended up doing about 800 before I decided enough was enough.  As you can imagine, I really made a dent in my scrap boxes. 

The triangles (all 800 of them) were then grouped by color and sewn into party banners.  I love party banners.  We've used them to decorate for Easter, birthday parties, and weddings that we weren't invited to

These particular banners are now being sold at The Bump Maternity Boutique, so I imagine they will mainly be used for baby showers and nursery decor.  The Bump is a locally owned store that has such cute and unique items for mom and baby.  Like these fancy banners! (And other great stuff too.)

Most of the items I sell don't really require packaging, but I wanted to keep all the little triangles extra safe, so I put each banner in a plastic sleeve and then Steve designed really cute stickers for the outside. 
I was telling Steve the other day that there are so many great qualities he has that I didn't even  think to look for in a husband.  I mean, I had a running list in my head, but "designing really cute stickers for product packaging" was not on it, surprisingly enough.  I sure did get lucky. 

I also took my stock of stuffed balls to The Bump, so you will notice that I no longer have a "baby" section in my online shop.  One of my goals this year is to narrow my focus, so I'll be phasing out some items in the coming months. 
Today I'm excited to be working on a whole batch of these canvas and leather lunch bags.  Steve has been using his every day for about three months now and it's still looking great- product testing at its finest! 
Will you be making any last minute Valentine's today?  Here are some card ideas for inspiration!


  1. Oh wow, I love all of the fabrics you selected, especially that ikat! And the fabric variety found in each banner is so creative! I probably would have just repeated the same one. :)

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Woo hoo for more product placement! Good job, girl! Happy Valentine's! I promise I will be emailing soon:).
