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.

Goodie Jars

These are old-fashioned sewing jars (made out of canning jars), but I made some thinking they could be a really cute teacher gift filled with goodies or a gift card.  OR if you have a crafty friend, fill it with buttons or craft-supplies.  It is a pin cushion on top but they look adorable without pins too!  Can be made in a variety of sizes.  These goodie jars are $7. 

Holiday Kitchen Towels

So I found a new vendor for wonderful flour sack and kitchen towels - the quality is excellent.  Decided to add a band of holiday fabric - as I'm getting into the holiday spirit!  These are a great hostess gift (tied in a bow with an ornament or your favorite kitchen soap) or for your own kitchen!  Holiday towels are $10 each. 

New Favorite Bag - Spice Market Tote

I love new projects and this bag is so fun.  It's a Market Tote made of designer fabrics - with several layers of interfacing/stabilizer so it's so sturdy.  Includes 2 interior pockets, a bottom panel and a snap closure is an option.  It can be filled with goodies for a gift or taken with you to the market!  One of my favorites...  The Market Totes are $45. 

iPad Cover/Case

My new favorite.... an iPad case!  So my husband buys an iPad "for me" and although I've probably used it the least among the 6 people in this house (including my 3 year old), I couldn't WAIT to make a case for it!  Total sewing geek...  Zipper at top, lined and padded - so cute.  Can be made in ANY fabric combinations.    iPad cases are $30. 

Oil Cloth Zipper Bags

A friend asked if I could make an oil cloth bag with a zipper...  so I did!  These are great for cosmetics, sunscreen or anything that could possibly get wet.  Just wipe clean.  I also included an optional handle on this one and it has a small interior pocket.  (Zipper size is 14 inches long.) The oil cloth zipper bags are $25.

Life wins over sewing. Been a little busy....

The JDRF Walk is done for 2011 - and now I'm back to reality, life and sewing!  We had such a wonderful day thanks to all the support of family and friends.  The kids had a blast...  I love this picture of Colleen and her hot cocoa.
