Quilt Charms for Sale!!!



It's a BIG plunge for me!

I've been sewing tiny pieces of fabric, really tiny! If you are on Facebook, you've probably seen some of my teases. 

The original plan was, I would sew these tiny blocks, and then make them into charms. However after I took a jewelry class with my friend Tammy of Flat Creek Farm, I realized I was not cut out to be a jewelry maker. 

It was by a great stroke of luck I found Angie. She makes some awesome jewelry and sells on Etsy too. We first met when we were doing a craft show in Jefferson City last fall. Shortly before Christmas she called to purchase something from the Blacksmith shop for her husband. When she came we got to talking. . .  craft shows, campers, etc.  One thing lead to another.  She told me she made jewelry.  I hired her on the spot.  Really I should say she agreed to make some charms for me.  Little did she know,  I would have  50+ for her.

Long story short, they have arrived!

(Remember click on the picture to enlarge them)








They are 1 1/2 inches square. These are two sided glass. On the back side you will see the paper piece pattern and all the tiny stitches.  Some have the pieces numbered.

I can mail them Priority Mail for  $5.80. 

Cash is good, check is good.  After that it's Paypal.  In a pinch, credit cards work too.

What a great idea! It looks like you have sold quite a few already. Will have to admit I was wondering what you planned on doing with all of those mini blocks. Now I know. The are beautiful.

These are insanely small--and wonderful! What a great idea--and something most people could never manage. I really hope that next time you have a batch, I can manage to be blog-reading in time to get one I love!

OMG - your charms are delightful! Amazing that you could make them so small. I wish you lots of luck keeping them in stock. I'm sure they will sell out quickly.

I missed your original post about your charms. They are really pretty and such a great idea. I ssee them as a pair of earrings since I don't wear my charm bracelet any more. Are the blocks paper pieced? They are so tiny.
