Here’s what we’re working on in the 1840 Farm Studio. Click on a photo to enlarge.
It's time to pack up a few orders and send this lovely assortment of baskets on their journey to their new homes. If you placed an order from our shop during the last week, you just might see your basket in this photo!
We're in for another gloomy day outside, but my view at the sewing machine is especially lovely this morning!
Remember the beautiful bright aquamarine thread I found earlier this week? I think that it's time for me to put it to good use and make a new basket, don't you?
The basket I started this morning turned out beautifully. I just love this bright blue fabric paired with orange, brown and tan.
This basket is taking shape and looking fantastic. I never tire of working with this combination of colors. I just love them together, don't you? #fabric #thread #handmade #repurposed
I bought this fabric almost a year ago. I love the little birds, the colors, and the assortment of patterns. In fact, I love it so much that I can't seem to decide what to make with it. Hmm... #1840farm #fabric

Another patchwork basket is in the works.
Tomorrow is officially the first day of fall. So, I guess that I should start filling The 1840 Farm Mercantile Shop on Etsy with items made in the most beautiful combinations of fall colors. To that end, I just added the first four sets of our Coloni
We're midway through an 85 hour snowstorm. In between clearing away snow, I will be settling in at the sewing machine to stitch up a few baskets. Here's the basket that is on the sewing machine right now. Isn't it lovely?
I just added a preorder listing for our Apple Harvest exclusive fabric. So many of you had asked that I let you place your orders while our fabric is in production and now you can. We'll be placing another order before the end of the week and will add i
These baskets were all shipped out during the last few days. Five of them were holiday baskets, the last of them for the year. Don't worry, we'll bring them back again next year. Until then, we'll keep stitching and sharing new baskets with you. We just
First up at the sewing machine today: this cheery combination of fabrics is being stitched into a Large Tote Basket. I love gingham and polka dots, so working on this basket is the perfect way to start my Sunday morning!
I just put the last stitches in the patchwork basket that I shared with you yesterday. I adore this combination of fabrics and colors, don't you? I'll be adding this Medium Egg Basket to our Etsy shop later today and sharing the link right here, so stay
I just added 1840 Farm Gift Certificates to our shop. Thanks to your input, I included an option to select fabric or twine to be used when making each certificate. We can make these in any denomination and take the guesswork out of choosing a gift for s
Take a look at what's first in line at the sewing machine this morning. Isn't this a lovely combination of fabrics?
Here's what is taking shape here this evening. It won't be long until this fabric is stitched together into a Puppy Love Basket. Penny Lane and I can't wait to watch it take shape! #1840farm #fabric #basket #sew #handmadeandheartfelt #handmade #etsyshop
Yesterday was a busy day. I added four baskets to our shop: two Trick or Treat Totes, a Small Egg Basket, and a Small Table Basket. Three of them are still available and ready to ship. Which one is your favorite?
I am putting the finishing touches on the Etsy listings for our new Farmhouse Style Mason Jar Vase Kits. These will be ready to ship next week, so stay tuned for more information and links to the listings!
This color combination had been very popular this week. I better make another basket!
Our Fall Collection is starting to take shape...
It looks like it's time for me to settle in at the sewing machine!
These fabrics are being wrapped into a coil this evening. Sometimes, you need a basket with a little ladybug printed fabric, don't you? #fabric #repurposed #ladybug
This beautiful collection of baskets are headed to the post office this morning. I am hoping that these ten orders will get out ahead of our impending storm so that they can begin their journey to our customers. I have my fingers crossed that they won't g
This beautiful Large Tote Basket is in the works at my sewing machine this morning. I love the bright punch of color that the blue fabric brings to this basket. Stay tuned for photos of the finished tote!
There's something so wonderful about watching a custom basket take shape. It's magical to see your ideas come together in such a beautiful way!
I love how this basket is coming together. Aren't these colors amazing?
So far, so good! #fabric #thread #handmade
I started stitching this basket together on Sunday afternoon. I loved how it was taking shape and couldn't wait to share it with you. Then time went sideways on me and I was unable to finish it. Let's see if we can fix that this morning and get this lov
Pear Harvest fabric was just added to our Etsy Shop as a preorder. I can't wait to see what beautiful creations you'll be turning these new fall fabrics into! #1840farm #FarmhouseStyle #pear #fall #autumn #fabric #EtsyShop
Slightly different, but every bit as lovely as the fabrics I was working with earlier this morning.
It was a beautiful, crisp evening tonight. I took the opportunity to take photos out on the porch so that I could add our 1840 Farmhouse Style Mason Jar Vase Kits to our Etsy shop. Now I have put all of the animals to bed and poured myself a cup of coff
A rainy afternoon seems like the perfect reason to settle in at the sewing machine.
Doesn't this combination of colors and patterns just scream Spring?
Sewing until 2:00am means two things. First, I am going to need extra coffee this morning. More importantly, there are two beautiful new baskets to add to our shop. Stay tuned for more photos and links to the listings after I have had a cup (or two) of c
I hope that you're ready for a whole collection of new baskets to be added to our shop this weekend!
Since opening The 1840 Farm Mercantile Shop on Etsy, we've mailed out more than 425 orders. It's hard to believe that we've sent more than 500 baskets and other items to customers in the U.S., Canada, Alaska, and Australia. Yet here I sit, writing a han
I'm settled in at the sewing machine with a second cup of coffee working with one of my favorite color combinations. Monday is off to a great start!
