Here’s what we’re working on in the 1840 Farm Studio. Click on a photo to enlarge.
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?
The basket I started this morning turned out beautifully. I just love this bright blue fabric paired with orange, brown and tan.
I love how these colors and patterns are coming together, don't you?
I just love how this fall themed basket is coming together, don't you?
A member of our 1840 Farm Community named this style of basket for us. Serendipity seems like the perfect way to describe this lovely combination of random colors and patterns. I hope that you like it as much as I do because it is destined for our Etsy Sh
Our End of the Year Sale is still going on strong in our Etsy Shop. There are three items in stock and ready to ship that have been marked down by more than 25%! Selling these beautiful Fall items at such an extreme discount will make room for our Sprin
How about a Medium Egg Basket in bold primary colors?
Look what is taking shape at the sewing machine this afternoon...
My Saturday at the sewing machine is off to a delightful beginning. I hope that you love this combination of colors and patterns as much as I do!
Suddenly, my little studio is the place where Thanksgiving and Christmas decor collide!
This photo is for all of you who were hoping that I would stitch together a basket that had a little orange in it. Here's what's going on at the sewing machine right now...
The combination of blue and yellow fabrics might be my absolute favorite. We repainted the farmhouse kitchen a few years ago to match an egg basket made in these colors and patterns. I just love the buttery yellow and range of blues together. I'll be ma
This morning, I am working on the drawings for the next batch of fabrics, recipe cards, and greeting cards. Bushel baskets, apples, pears, and pumpkins will all be doing their part to help celebrate the season. I am hoping that this cappuccino will help
Yesterday, I invited you to nominate your favorite charity to be the recipient of our first event dubbed “The 1840 Farm Community Gives Back”. I loved reading your suggestions and comments. The charity that received the most nominations and votes was S
Another Trick or Treat Tote Basket is taking shape at the sewing machine this morning...
I have been waiting to work this fabric from our local thrift store into a basket. The fabric had the selvage tag still attached which included the name "Be Thankful". It seems like the perfect fabric in color and name to work into a table basket for a Th
This Small Egg Basket is coming together at the sewing machine this morning. I can almost picture a few speckled brown eggs nestled in there, can't you?
First up at the sewing machine this morning...
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
I hope that you're ready for a whole collection of new baskets to be added to our shop this weekend!
Our first ready to ship Market Tote has been added to our Etsy Shop! I love this basket's combination of colors and patterns. The cornflower blue thread accents it all so nicely. As you can see, our baskets are easily reversible, allowing you to create
I added our new Fall Collection Recipe Cards to the 1840 Farm Mercantile Shop yesterday. I'm making up a few sets this morning and wondering which one of these drawings will be the most popular. While these cards are offered as a set, we'll be making up
You have kept me very busy this week stitching up baskets and delivering orders to the post office. Thank you! I have made right new baskets in that past five days an only one of them is still available in our shop! Two of them were claimed before I h
I just added our first 1840 Farm Paper & Ink Collection listings to our Etsy Shop. I'm so excited about these items because they allow me to indulge my love of drawing, designing, and working with paper. I love working with paper every bit as much as I
Time to make up another batch of 1840 Farm Gift Certificates. These are moving so fast this holiday season that I can barely keep up!
I am applying discounts to every item from our Berry Collection in our Etsy Shop. We need to make room for the Fall Collection to join the shop later this week. Quantities are limited, but all of the fabric and paper items are on sale through Wednesday.
Two new items in the 1840 Farm Fall Collection were just added to our Etsy shop. I love this combination of chocolate brown, burgundy, orange, and green. Don't you think that this matching Small Table Basket and Mason Jar Vase Kit would be beautiful displ
Yesterday, I spent the afternoon stitching up Valentine's Day Heart Shaped Baskets. These two are ready to send on their journey to their new homes. With any luck, I can stitch up a few more today to join them! #1840farm #farmhousestyle #fabric #heart #b
Thanks to vigorous holiday sales, our Etsy Shop is completely sold out of our fabric wrapped baskets! I'll be spending a few hours at the sewing machine today so that we can start filling the shop up with baskets in a range of sizes, shapes, and colors.
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
I love how this Large Tote Basket is coming together at the sewing machine tonight. This combination of chocolate brown, sage green, tan, wisteria, and blue is even prettier than I hoped it would be!
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
Let's get things started at the sewing machine this morning with a patchwork basket. By the time I have put the last stitches in this Medium Egg Basket, I will have joined together pieces from six different basket projects to create a truly one of a kind
I can't seem to decide which one if these fabric coils to work with first. Do you have a favorite?
Working with one of my favorite color combinations is a nice way to start the week!
Working with these fabrics guarantees that my morning will start off on the right foot. Aren't they just lovely together? #fabric
Perhaps I can finish a basket for our shop before shitting down the sewing machine for the day. Wish me luck!
I haven't even chosen a thread color to go with these fabrics, but I can already see that this is going to make a beautiful basket!
Doesn't this combination of colors and patterns just scream Spring?
It's official: I adore this new aquamarine thread. I love how it looks in the patchwork basket I am stitching together at the sewing machine right now. Do you like this bright new color as much as I do?
