Welcome to Sweet Cherries!

Welcome to my blog dedicated to my sewing hobby, Sweet Cherries, and now some added recipes and goodies based on our family life & interests. This blog is an easy way for me to share... I love to sew for family, friends and home - it is my creative therapy. :) As I started sewing products, friends suggested I start selling my Hand Sewn Goodies. And so here is Sweet Cherries...

I sew Market/Tote Bags, Oil Cloth Bags, Cosmetic Bags, Kitchen Towels & Aprons, Home Decor… and special projects by request. There are also many great gift ideas on my blog!

NEW! My Etsy Shop: www.etsy.com/shop/SweetCherriesGoodies. You can purchase any items posted on Etsy directly through my shop. Go to www.Etsy.com/shop/SweetCherriesGoodies to make a purchase through Etsy.

Otherwise, TO PLACE AN ORDER FOR A SWEET CHERRIES PRODUCT: Please send me an e-mail to carriegraham5@sbcglobal.net or message on Facebook. I sell almost everything that I post - and I am happy to custom make any item that you see in a different fabric or color combination.

Fabric is Art...

Just made a pillowcase dress out of this fabric for a friend's daughter...  Check out the pattern!  It's artwork...  I just love it!

Black Damask Vinyl/Oil Cloth Bag

A friend requested that I make an oil cloth bag in a black patterned fabric...  and here it is!  Black damask vinyl on exterior/polka-dot oil cloth interior.  It turned out very cute - and a more sophisticated alternative for a Farmers Market tote.  Vinyl-covered fabric bags are $40.  Oil cloth bags are $35.

Storage/Display Solutions for Crafters & Sewers!

I had to post this!  I love my Willow House products for managing craft and sewing supplies.  As you can see - I have goodies on display in the Zoe Organizing Buckets and I use my French Wire Plant Holders for scissors, notions and scraps.  The products are so versatile.  If anyone is looking for a creative and beautiful way to store not-always-so-beautiful things, Willow House has the answer!  Check out my website at carriegraham.willowhouse.com. 

Baby Blanket (Flannel/Minky Fabrics)

I just love the two-sided blankets.  This one has flannel birdie fabric on one side and soft mint minky fabric on the other.  (Minky fabric is like a chenille.)  Great new baby gift!  The flannel/minky blankets are $25. 

New Vinyl-Covered Bags!

I just finished two of these cute vinyl-covered bags - whimsical print on exterior and polka dot interior.  Vinyl-covered fabric is similar to an oil cloth, so it's waterproof and can wiped clean.  Perfect for a pool or beach tote!  Vinyl-covered fabric bags are $40.  Oil cloth bags are $35.

A Trio of Sling Bags (New Extended Strap Option!)

I just finished these 3 Sling Bags for a friend's daughters.  Upon request, I extended the strap so that the girls can wear them crossing in front - on their bikes this summer or going to dance class.  The bags have several interior pockets.   For the extended strap, I added some of the fabric from the front exterior... so cute!  Sling Bags are $45, with extended strap $50.
