sarah was hosting a little cocktail party recently and realized that she was without a single coaster and was inspired to come up with something. these coasters are made from a thick painting drop cloth (unused, the best heavy duty canvas). we cut out circles, stamped them and then pick stitched the edges with embroidery thread. this was so easy and the stamping possibilities are endless! we also thought it would be fun to draw silhouettes and names on them.

sock animals

not just for kids! amy and sarah started making these luxe sock animals with cashmere socks that they sell in their store, and they started selling the animals themselves too, which literally flew out the door. the animals even took part in a men’s fashion show! a comforting gift for a friend, or just super cute sitting together in your home. so easy, thanks to the great patterns from sock and glove by miyako kanamori.

needlepoint kit

our sister-in-law wanted to learn to needlepoint and it gave us the idea to give these beautiful needlepoint kits. all of our friends wanted them to stitch their initials for a pillow or to frame. we all recently started needlepointing again—it’s so easy, and there are no nasty directions to keep up with so you can watch a movie or have a conversation while you stitch!
