You will have to speak up…

What’s that you say?  I’m sorry.  Can’t hear you over the whir of the sewing machine.  The giggles and screams of three kids.  The washing machine and dryer.  You will have to speak up…

I’ve been a bit busy lately.  You know, the usual.  Filling orders like these and oh, yes, 18 aprons!  (Sorry no photos on those yet – they are off getting finished with Nova, my super accomplished wonderful seamstress helper).  Just the usual ho hum chaotic noise around here…..

I see twirling in someone's future...

Whoo man, love these owl appliques!

St Mary Hipster little flower pin

Mini-mommy bag - I could just eat this one up!

Diaper Wipes wristlet - or for those of you who don't don a diaper with you everywhere you go - just a nice little bag.

Lantern Bloom from Laura Gunn - this is my St Mary Hipster bag.

Seriously? I have probably another 10 photos or so I could post of what I've been making the last couple of weeks but I don't want to bore you...

WAIT!  No!  Not the usual!  I have some exciting news!

Hazel Hipster PatternSPROUTS!  Sprouts is finally here!

After a full year or so of designing pattern covers and kicking around which projects to pattern first – we have finally completed our first draft pattern from the Two Peas in a Pod Homegrown Designs pattern line aptly called, “Sprouts”.  (Sticking with the whole garden theme here…the gardener actually developed this name.  He’s pretty good, isn’t he?)

Sprouts, Pea sized projects you can complete in 3 hours or less.

Because really, who has more time than that?  And even at that – it’ll take days, right?  As I type this now…I’m listening to the baby NOT take a nap and I’m thinking, there goes my tiny 2 hour block of time to do anything.  (she’s quite skilled at pushing my sewing machine foot pedal while I’m not looking).

The Hazel Hipster.  Yep.  Here she is, in all her glory.

That's of my "twins mom" friends

One of my friends from my twins club served as my “model” for the cover.  (Her Dad is also my accountant – he’ll find some creative write off for me on this one I’m sure!)

Ready to go! But quantities are limited...

I love, love, love this pattern because it is the FIRST purse I ever designed.  First purse I ever made.  And it is oh, so very simple.  The pattern is chock full of real life photos so you don’t have to guess what I’m talking about – you can see it for yourself.  No line drawings or anything.  And the price.  Ya can’t beat it.  Affordable.  And just think of all the bags you could make just in time for Christmas!  (Oh I see you out there rubbing your hands together!)

And you know what else is cool about it?  I made up a mini version so you can have matching Mommy and me bags.  The cute factor is just too much here!

Go quick before they are gone. And if you have any questions along the way as you sew – drop me a line at twopeasinapoddesigns at

There are a few giveaways going on with these patterns – you’ll find them scattered about in blog land.  Keep checking back here – I’ll keep updating the page at the top of my blog titled “Sprouts” – you’ll find a growing list of blogs to visit where you might be able to win one of these Hazel Hipster patterns.

I have more SUPER exciting (ok, well for ME it’s super exciting) news to share but I’ll save that for next time.  I did mention, things were starting to go wonderfully around here.  I got into my first juried show.  Cool but that’s not the big news.  Kind of bigger.  You’ll just have to wander on back here later to find out!  (wink! and a head nod)

See ya soon,

  9. I think I have an idea of what your news might be! I could be wrong, but I’m generally very good at guessing these things. Congratulations on the bag pattern; I wish my sewing machine hadn’t broken right as I was going to test it for you. I still will obviously, but I wish I could have been more help!

  10. Congratulations! Everything looks great.

  11. Great idea to do a mini version! My little 5 yr old ‘bag lady’ would love her own in just her size!

    Love the Sprouts name too!
