BIG NEWS BIG NEWS BIG NEWS !!!
As I mentioned earlier, I've started to branch out and have created many new kinds of items such as, blankets (I'm thinking about quilts for the near future), curtains, pillow covers , towels, purses using a slightly modified version of a pattern from Chris W. Designs. But my biggest success yet are feathered wings originally made for a child's costume. I've had so much fun creating them!! And so many happy customers !!
As my creative thought processes continue to grow and expand, I find more and more ways to express them. Fairy Houses and Bib Aprons are my latest journey into creativity.

BAGS:
All of my bags can be used for a plethora of items, depending on the size ordered. Some examples are cell phone bags, iPod bags, iPhone bags, Kindle bags, jewelry traveler bags, toiletries bag, glass pipe bags, make-up bags, something special for birthdays, holidays, showers, weddings, girl's night, children's gym bags, overnight bags, library bags, or whatever you can think of. They are fun to make and I am capable of taking most any idea you may have and customizing something special for you.

FAIRY HOUSES
I have been having so much fun making these!! There are all sorts of them, each made with the magic of love. They're Fun! They're whimsical! Great for the garden, indoor decoration, or a night light! Check 'em out.

APRONS:
My daughter is currently working at East Egg restaurant, recently named as the best breakfast restaurant in Michigan. She asked me if I would make her a bib apron for work. So many people complimented her on it, that she told me I just needed to make them to sell. So that's what I have done. I took a great pattern in which there are straps over each shoulder and cross in the back, each strap going through a loop before tying. I liked this pattern because it took the weight off of the server's neck and distributed it more evenly. However, I modified it because I noticed that the aprons didn't fit quite right on some of the servers that I sold to. What did I do? I added an extra loop on either side for the straps to go through which allows the individual to adjust the apron to fit their body type. I also use duck cloth which repels liquids.

***
I really am able to take an idea and run with it or if you wish, I can try to find specific materials that you name. Another option is to send me an image of the item you wish to have made; or of the fabric or other materials you would like me to use. If it is possible to locate the items, I will make your desired creation to your specialized taste. If I cannot find the exact items, they will be as close to the original as possible.

All items are handmade by me, Cherie Snyder, in Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA.

**Important Note: During my Christmas rush of orders I had 4 wonderful assistants: Lisa Bushen, Kimberly Honahnie, Barb Betts, and my sweet husband, Bob. Thank you, thank you to each of you for helping me make my Feathered Wings a success!

About

Bags, Bags Everywhere! And NOW plenty of other creations too!

Because of my dear friends, Pauline Dennis and Lisa Bushen, and their enthusiasm plus the inspiration and support they both give, I started out making quilts for family members and good friends. I'm not ready to make and sell quilts just yet; but who knows?
One day I just thought about how fun it would be to make novelty bags. People always need bags and they can be a fun and surprisingly great gift! They are fun to make and don't take as long as a darn quilt. : ) Just so you know, each bag I make is made with love, care and integrity in its making.
A little more about me: I just received my certification as a Nurse's Aid! In the past, I taught children with emotional impairments for 15 years, taught preschool for 3 years, volunteered 4 years for the American Cancer Society's ROAD to Recovery program as a Driver Coordinator and I have also been a Nanny for a little girl from the time she was 7 months old until she was almost 4 years old. It was hard to let her go when her grandparents moved here from Vietnam to help out but I still get to see her now and then. I now have a new love for making beautiful and unique items and the best part is that I continue to improve my art of creation.
I'm happy with what I do in my life and hope that I can share part of that with my patrons in the making of my creations.
Peace & Joy,
Cherie : )
