Retro World

September has definitely been the month for Sew Cute Workshop to just go-go-go. A convention here and a fair there. Here’s an update of the latest in my convention/fair quest. My last convention was Retro World Expo. A place filled with arcade machines and old timey video games that you can think of. Besides old school video games to play, they also had some new ones, a live band, panels, and special guests. Retro World definitely inspired me to make a couple of pins. These are my original designs of arcade machines that I have available in my RedBubble Store … Continue reading Retro World

In An Unlikely Place

There is a secret cafe & bookstore that was built by the author of Diary of A Wimpy Kid – that place is An Unlikely Story.  An Unlikely Story holds treasures for all ages – lots of literature, great food, and all the possibilities of imagination. In the 2nd story of the bookstore holds many fun and exciting activities. Sew Cute Workshop was happy to participate in an Unlikely Story’s annual craft fair held on August 25, 2018. We had some exquisite meals and drinks. The event holder was nice enough to take our meal orders, so we didn’t have to … Continue reading In An Unlikely Place

An elephant to remember…

A co-worker of mine was having a baby girl. She said that she wanted her baby’s room to have elephants as a sign of good luck. The elephant is associated with Buddha and the Indian deity Ganesh and can be used to symbolize power, wisdom, strength, protection of the home, fertility, and general good luck. The office decided to have a baby shower for welcoming the new baby. Everyone bought or donated to welcome the baby. However, I wanted to make a custom gift for the baby. I crocheted a baby blanket and this cute little elephant doll for her … Continue reading An elephant to remember…

Kinda Con 3.0

Another year at Kinda!Con in their new location – Hyatt Regency Hotel in Morristown. This was Kinda!Con’s first year to host a 2 day event and relocation to accommodate more artists and vendors. Originally, they hosted the convention in Woodland Park’s American Legion post. It was a mini “kind of” convention and my second experience with conventions. The volunteers and staff were friendly and helpful being a first time convention. Since then, they have been very supportive and have improved. It’s surprising how long this convention has progressed. It is definitely a convention to check out to support dedicated artists/vendors … Continue reading Kinda Con 3.0

NJIT Mini Con 3

Thank you to everyone who visited the Sew Cute Workshop booth in March. This was Sew Cute Workshop’s second year attending the convention. An angled photo of our booth next to Yoekko(Chibi Youko). It seemed that not many people attended this year, but it’s probably because it’s vacation time for students or everyone is conventioned out. Over several months Sew Cute Workshop has been trying to make an online presence so we can send more adoptables to wonderful homes. Any recommendations is welcomed to set up an e-commerce. Thank you again for everyone who visited and my wonderful kitten – … Continue reading NJIT Mini Con 3

What’s Little Christmas?

A coworker of mine asked if I could crochet baby clothes since I made a baby blanket for another coworker’s maternity leave. The baby clothes was for baby Jesus in a nativity scene. Each Christmas until the Three Kings they dress up baby Jesus. I made this cute seal outfit for baby Jesus – thinking he was about the size of a baby. My coworker dressed up the baby Jesus and this is the result. Continue reading What’s Little Christmas?
