What’s New? Wednesday

Today I want to talk about inspiration.
As I am patiently waiting for my laser cutter to be assembled. I am on pinterest daily getting inspiration for items that I want to design to make my Geeksters happy.
When I look at items on pinterest, I don’t look to copy what other artists do. I look and find items that I can change to make them fit for my target Audience.
For instance the rings in the attached pictures, I saw them and my brain automatically went “Impala” and “Tardis”. I didn’t know I can cut leather with the machine, so the inspiration to make leather cuffs for people at the Renaissance Faire, especially my fairy friends.
I love how many options I now have with this laser cutter.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Happy Geekery

Charity Work for 2017

Hello fellow readers,

well this past year has not been a good one for SewGeekAustin. Sales have been down, partially that is my fault and partially I blame Hot Topic. LOL

But now for a more serious post, in 2016 I have not been able to donate nearly as much as I have in previous years, so I am asking you all my trusty readers to help me out.

I am still going to donate 10% of all my online sales to charities. Help me pick the charities for the year. I am also asking you to spread the word about my shop. I am hoping to get back to more sewing items rather then jewelry. I am planning some new one of kind handbags.
Also if you want anything custom made please contact me and I will try my best to make it happen.

Let’s see if we can get to 6000 FB likes by the end of the year and I will hold a pretty awesome new Years give away. (well I will do that anyways)

Also please don’t forget to sign up for my Newsletter here: Newletter Sign Up

I am looking forward to raising more money again and to make Geeks all over the world happy.

Upcycled products…

I love upcycled products and so I decided last year to make Denim Bags from old Jeans. When I was a Teenager, I had made myself my favorite purse from my favorite old Jeans that I could no longer wear.

My Denim bags are lined in SewGeekAustin’s signature Pink and come in different fandoms. Of course Supernatural is one of them and I decided to make a tribute bag to the beautiful car of Dean Winchester. Including the Army Man and the Lego.

These awesome Superntural Character Inspired bracelets are now in stock. I hand make these, yes there are some that are out there that are mass produced. I like that I make my own, that way they are more customizable. In the next couple of days, I will also make Baby and Chuck. What other Characters would you like to see?
