Hipster bag with Impressionist and Eiffel Tower fabric - a great size for running around town doing errands. Room enough for a paperback, wallet, and glasses, but not so big as to weigh you down.
Beautiful fall day to take photos. This is a small clutch or wristlet with two fabrics: peacocks and peacock feathers.
Five fresh clutches for spring

About

A Full Cup Design

"A full cup must be carried steadily." English proverb

I’ve been sewing and working with fabric since I was a child. My mom taught me to sew, and I have taken needlepoint and embroidery classes. I started by making sleeping bags for all my favorite stuffed animals. When I went off to college, my favorite item was the tie-dyed comforter cover I made.

After college, I had a job writing and delivering training to Wall Street traders and FAA air traffic managers. I left that high-stress world behind when my husband and I started a family. I still needed a creative outlet, and re-discovered my love of sewing. When my children were very small, I made pillows, curtains, and purses for myself and for friends and family.

In 2010 when my youngest started school, I opened up my Etsy shop. I wanted to try my hand at sewing for a wider audience. I love to buy fabric and try out new patterns, and thought Etsy would be a great way to do all of those things.

A few years ago, I saw a Nuno felted scarf that I fell in love with. I learned how to create them from my mother-in-law and decided to put a new section in my Etsy shop. I enjoy putting colors and designs together with wool and silk.

Along with reading, sewing and felting are my hobbies and stress-busters. My mission: finding beauty in simplicity and laughter over a full cup of tea.

    I grew up and live in MA. Taught by my mom, I’ve sewn since I was a child. I sew purses, totes, bags, electronic device covers, snack bags, and felted scarves from wool and silk. Mission: find beauty in simplicity & laughter over a full cup of tea.
