A new direction

So I've been thinking, alot, especially since the accident and I feel strongly about a new direction for Noguchi Designs.

I've always sewn, gifted everything in the beginning, then came my Little Lady and I moved on to Dresses and Toys (mostly) and opened shop. I love what I do, SEWING, it is a hobby for me not a job. I don't do well with stocking dates or times, I can function with a custom just fine in a turnaround that's pleasing to both myself and the buyer. I feel I shouldn't stress out over a hobby.

No I'm not closing, I am just slowing down and not committing anything. If I get a stuffed animal urge, then hey, I'll post that new Toys are available, or if I find a totally great Kyoko fabric I just have to make, I'll announce that there's new stock up. So on and so forth.

Now with the Quilting that I'm trying out, I'd love to have others enjoy them, I will try to find places to donate too, gift them as needed or wanted and maybe get lucky and sell one.

Just this month I made and donated 10 dresses to Dress A Girl. Do you know how super great it felt to drop that package off at the PO yesterday?

Oh so wonderful! that's how.

I do hope you stick around here and on FB I do appreciate all of you and your comments :)

All done!


Rainbow of Rectangles

Isn't she a beaut!

Yes the Scrappy Quilt from January that I had the love hate thing going on with.

It's 100% complete and ready to be loved.

I am sew happy with how it turned out. The backing is a fun ABC fabric my mom picked up for me 7-8 years ago :-0 I used it to bind as well. The quilting is an echo of the rectangles and straight lines through the smaller framer/sashing/pieces (I'm sew quilt technical :P )

Finished at 35x46

If you'd like to purchase please email for price

Please note this may go to donation or be gifted as well.

*Don't forget about the Sew A Dress with me giveaway

10 dresses

10 dresses April

Pillowcase style ranging from size 1 to 4.

I had these all precut and stashed away from about 5 years ago. The 4 on the left were to be for my now 5.5yr old daughter. (eecckk) I guess I got to busy to finish them for her.

These will be going to Dress a Girl at the end of the month, Check out the Flickr Group, we are up to 100 or more as of today.

Care to sew one with me? enter in the previous post for a chance to win the supplies to make one.
