What does it hold?


What fits in one of our cute little bucket bags? When packing for road trips, we like to fill our travel bags with any combination of the items photographed below (plus a little chocolate). For gift-giving, we might add a pair of earrings or nail polish or a skein of yarn.

Makeup brushes, foundation, mascara, eye shadow, and lip gloss.

Winter travel essentials: hand sanitizer, gloves, glasses, flashlight, pocket tool, bandaids, pen, and notebook.

Bright and colorful:

The latest sets of bean bags from our shop are on sale, too! They make great hand-warmers when microwaved for a few seconds (heat to your own preferred temperature, but remember, they get hot quickly and stay that way for quite awhile!) and then tucked into coat pockets.

Shop Small with Handiworkin' Girls:

Included in our sale are our dainty glass jewelry holders. We use them ourselves to organize our jewelry on our dressers (especially our earrings), but they also make pretty stands for sorting makeup or small perfume bottles on the vanity. In the dining room, they can showcase petite appetizers or desserts for tea parties or Christmas gatherings.

The latest white rug...

 A perennial favorite of our customers and ourselves, the white rag rug is at once both classic and modern. It suits multiple decor styles and blends successfully into almost any room in your home. Thanks to the soft cotton of the upcycled t-shirts, our rag rugs feel as soft and cushy underfoot as they look in their photos.

Playing with word clouds...

Our first post of 2014 - yes, it's been a long time. We have been having technical issues with Blogger, but that appears to resolved. (Or so we hope.) Today's feature is not a treasury, but a couple of the word clouds we have been using as we toy with color schemes we want to feature within our shop over the next few months. The brighter, warm shades from the first image are ones we plan to incorporate into our bean bags and jewelry holder lines, and the richer colors in the second are inspiring our current sewing project, a thirty-piece batch of our small gift bags.

Enjoy the new colors!
