Here’s what we’re working on in the 1840 Farm Studio. Click on a photo to enlarge.
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!
This seems like a good place to start my day. I love how these fabrics look together already, don't you?
Our Fall Collection is starting to take shape...
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
With a cup of coffee at my side, it is time to answer the important question: how many heart shaped baskets can I stitch today? #1840farm #handmade #fabric #sew #basket
My afternoon is shaping up in the sweetest of ways! #1840farm #valentine
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
Sometimes, a collection of fabric is even more beautiful than I had hoped. This is one of those times. Aren't these colors and patterns fabulous?
Yesterday's basket in the fabrics you chose turned out beautifully. Next up at the sewing machine is your second place favorite. This combination of pink, aqua, wisteria, and charcoal is going to be a stunner. Now I just need to decide what size and sha

I sat down at the sewing machine to turn this lovely assortment of fabrics into a patchwork basket for our shop. Now I can't decide what type of basket I should make: egg basket, table basket, or oval harvest basket. What do you think? #1840farm #Farmh

All this talk about Home Ec on our Facebook page made me want to find time to settle in at the sewing machine. There's something about the hum of its motor and working with my hands that sets my day off in the right direction. I'll be finishing this egg
I just added Small Egg Basket #0533 to our shop. This is the first basket I have made in this combination of fabrics. I love it! What do you think? www.1840farm.etsy.com
There's something just lovely about a ball of wool yarn. The color, the texture, the infinite possibilities! #1840farm #wool #fiber #felt #yarn
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
And then there were six! Our 1840 Farmhouse Style Fall Placesetting Table Basket Set is finished. I hope that you'll love this set as much as I do!
Yesterday's pink basket with gingham and polka dots was so popular that I made another one. I just added Small Egg Basket #0521 to our shop. I hope that you like this pink beauty as much as yesterday's! www.1840farm.etsy.com
I hope that you're ready for a whole collection of new baskets to be added to our shop this weekend!
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...
Time to add a few new items to our Etsy Shop...
I'm stitching up the last of our Halloween Collection this morning. I'll be adding these baskets to the shop today and tomorrow before moving on to making items to decorate your Thanksgiving tables. Stay tuned for photos!
I have been working on a lot of fall themed baskets lately. This brightly custom basket is such a nice change of pace this morning. There may be raindrops falling outside, but it's bright and cheery at the sewing machine!
Small Table Basket #0454 was just added to our shop. I love this combination of marine blue, cinnamon, tan, and cream. I hope that you like it as much as I do! https://www.etsy.com/listing/205782481/small-table-basket-0454
It's no wonder that I love working with our customers to make custom baskets: you come up with the most beautiful color combinations! I love this collection of fabrics and can't wait to make another basket using them. What would you like to see me make
My Sunday in the studio is starting out in the loveliest way. #1840farm #farmhousestyle #fabric #sew #sewing #heart #basket #handmade #etsy #etsyshop #valentine #valentinesday
Take a look at what's first in line at the sewing machine this morning. Isn't this a lovely combination of fabrics?
It's been such a busy weekend, but I finally found a little time to spend at the sewing machine.
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
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!
It can snow and winter on all it wants to outside. I plan on channeling my love of spring right up until it finally arrives! You'll find the link to our shop on our profile if you'd like to take a closer look.
There's another foot of snow expected here today. I'll be stitching up baskets and adding Heirloom Seed Collections to our Etsy Shop as long as the power holds out. Oh, and with temperatures under ten degrees, I will be drinking a lot of hot coffee. Here
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?
These fabrics are coming together even better than I had hoped. I can't wait to see if the finished basket is as beautiful as the beginning!
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
Working with these fabrics guarantees that my morning will start off on the right foot. Aren't they just lovely together? #fabric
You may have noticed that the inventory of handmade baskets in our shop has been slim lately. We're making new baskets every day, but they are selling faster than we can make them. Many of them have sold within the first five minutes and others haven't
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
