Here’s what we’re working on in the 1840 Farm Studio. Click on a photo to enlarge.
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
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.
You asked for more of our handmade heart shaped items in time for Valentine's Day and I listened. I just added these Mason Jar Candy Jar Sets to our Etsy Shop. These sets include a fabric heart shaped trivet with matching tie, pint sized Mason Jar, and ga
The second patchwork basket of the day is coming together nicely, don't you agree?
My afternoon is shaping up in the sweetest of ways! #1840farm #valentine
Double stitching the base of our heart shaped baskets requires twice as much time and thread. I want to make sure that you can use these baskets for years to come, so I'll keep right on stitching! #1840farm #farmhousestyle #fabric #thread #sew #handmade
I just added Small Egg Basket #0455 to our shop. While our round baskets are most commonly used for collecting fresh eggs, this one seems perfectly suited for displaying seasonal apples, pumpkins, or candy. It would also be a fabulous trick or treat bas
Today's basket is a beauty if I do say so myself!
As you can see, Penny Lane is working tirelessly to help me in the studio today! #1840farm #sew #sewing #farmhousedog #dog #pennylane #rescuedog #heart #etsy #etsyshop
I find that you just can't go wrong with polka dots and gingham!
Before I can start my pie baking, there's a bit of sewing to do. This egg basket will be coming to our shop tomorrow morning if I can finish it up this evening. I have my fingers crossed because it's shaping up to be a beauty! #1840farm #fabric #egg #bas
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
This color combination was very popular last weekend. Baskets were selling before I could even finish them! So, let's start this weekend off in the same way as last weekend. Here's what I'm working on at the sewing machine right now...
This Small Table Basket was just added to our shop. This beautiful basket makes three listings all in fall colors added today. It's beginning to look more like fall in our shop!
There's something so lovely about how this combination of fabric and thread came together. The salmon colored fiddlehad spiral is tough to beat! You can get a closer look through the link to our shop right on our profile. #farmhousestyle #basket #fabri
Remember the Medium Egg Basket I made earlier today in bold primary colors? I just added it to our shop. I love this combination of bold, bright colors. They're seasonless. I find it hard not to smile when looking at these fabrics twirled together
Another Heart Shaped Table Basket is coming together at the sewing machine. This is the loveliest way to spend my day! #1840farm #farmhousestyle #fabric #sew #heart #basket #handmade #etsy #etsyshop
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
Time to add a few new items to our Etsy Shop...
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
I just added this colorful Medium Egg Basket to our Etsy shop. Visit https://www.etsy.com/listing/200334480/medium-egg-basket-0437 to take a closer look!
I love how this basket is coming together. Aren't these colors amazing?
Our Thanksgiving table items are coming along nicely if I do say so myself. I even discovered that our handwrapped fabric coil makes a lovely napkin ring. I hope that you like it as much as I do!
Part of my motivation for reimagining my studio space was to reorganize our fabric stash and find room for additional storage bins. I often tell people that we have a rainbow of fabrics on hand. Today, I thought that I would show you that fabric rainbow.
In between stitching up Valentine's Day Heart Shaped Baskets, I'm making a few baskets for our Etsy Shop. I just added this little purple egg basket to our shop. Purple is always our most requested fabric color, so I'll be sure to have a few more purple
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
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?
Our seaglass inspired Farmhouse Laundry Set is taking shape. The sandstone colored wool is felting right now. It looks so lovely with the rocky grey and sea blue wool. I can't wait to design a basket to coordinate with them so that I can add the set to
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
Suddenly, my little studio is the place where Thanksgiving and Christmas decor collide!
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
A rainy afternoon seems like the perfect reason to settle in at the sewing machine.
Remember the purple tote basket I was working on earlier? Here it is all finished and full of purples in all sorts of colors and patterns. The photo doesn't do justice to the scale of this Large Market Tote Basket. This basket is over eight inches tall
I just added Small Egg Basket #0463 to The 1840 Farm Mercantile Shop on Etsy. I love this combination of chocolate brown and deep orange. Suddenly, I'm craving pumpkin dark chocolate chip bars! www.etsy.com/shop/1840Farm
Sometimes, I fall in love with a basket from the very first stitch. This is one of those times!
Are you ready for a flood of new listings to our Etsy shop? I hope so, because all of these and more are headed your way this afternoon. www.etsy.com/shop/1840Farm
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
Not a creature was stirring, not even Penny Lane. She's too busy napping while we start working on this beautiful purple custom egg basket. In fact, she's snoring while I share this photo with you right now! #1840farm #fabric #handmade #egg #basket #etsy
Remember the Medium Egg Basket that I promised to add to our shop before the end of the day? Here it is. This is one of our patchwork baskets made from pieces of past basket projects. This patchwork basket was made using pieces from six other baskets
