Announcement   *** UPDATE 3/27/17 ***
Pixie Digital Tutorial is back up with updates. Must apologize for the delay. If you have an older versions, and would like to get the never copy, please message me for a link. Changes include:
- New wing design
- Added length to legs on pattern
- and a few minor typo fixes.

Teacup elves should be available again by beginning of April. Also, still must apologize for the delay on the jointed house elf tutorial. Head is coming together. Still needs replacement pics for the head section and another proofing. Might have a kit in the works with the elf tutorial. Please let me know if you'd like to see this option for other tutorials. I make it my priority to get a Teacup Elf tutorial finished, too.

Working on listing some larger elves. I'm sorry for this. I do hope to have a couple up, soon. We're working as fast as we can. We also have a new kid friendlier style of pixie to go with the teacup elves!

Tabistry top hat pattern/tutorial is up next when I can. Then a revamp of the other Hat Tutorials and Tabistry Basics. I hope to add some more options and info for trims and joins.

If you need any help or have any questions, convo me. We'll see what we can do. Immense thanks to all those who have tried my tutorials and supported my work.

*** END UPDATE ***

So, you’ve collected HUNDREDS or maybe even THOUSANDS of can tabs, but don’t really know what to do with them? How about making TABISTRY?

What is TABISTRY, you ask?

It's basically the art of making things with pull tabs. The form of Tabistry I cover in my tutorials does not require ANY complicated skills or tools. You just need some tabs and scrap fabric to get started.

Still not quite sure what tabistry is? For more info see my bio or to see pictures of what can be done check out my blog at:

http://tabistry.blogspot.com

Come join our group by searching "tabistry" on Facebook.com!

As always, hounding me still helps. :) If there is a pattern you would like to see on Etsy keep convo'ing, emailing or pm'ing me on my blog. I have many projects going at the same time. The one with the most requests will be moved to the top of my list.

Thank you for stopping by my store! Have a Can-TAB-u-lous Day!

He is so well constructed, arrived in a very short amount of time and the packaging was entirely on point. This was a great purchase and communication was awesome!

Fast shipping. Have not put my pixie together yet but all the directions and patterns and pieces seem to be clear. Can't wait to put it together with the help of my sewing friend.

About

It's not my day job, but maybe some day

These days the majority of my time is devoted to raising my family. When not tending to their needs, I enjoy spending my time designing and making things. LOTS of different things. I never know where my interests will turn next when experimenting. This shop is where you'll find various tutorials on how I do what I do. And, occasionally you may find a project or two in need of a good home. Oh, and my mom and daughter contribute on occasion.

Feel free to try out my ideas and techniques. I only ask that you not abuse my generousity by selling items or tutorials that would compete directly with my own work.
