"Feeding Families" one apron at a time...And a portion of my sales goes to Saddleback Church Food Pantry - helping feed local families in need.

How "Sew Sassy" got started...

I was in search of a fun, retro apron. Difficult to say the least...

And when I found that apron I was shocked to learn it was out of my price range. So what's a girl to do?! SEW (of course)!

I love to craft and have been for a big part of my life. I've knitted scarves and blankets for loved ones. I've painted and created ornaments during the holidays. So why not sew (which I haven't done for at least 20 years). But like I told a friend "It's just like riding a bicycle", kinda. :)

After I created my first apron, I decided I would make some as gifts. And as that gift list grew, and friends saw the aprons that I created, they started inquiring if I would sell them?

I found myself contemplating "Why not"?

"Sew Sassy" is the outcome of my efforts in sharing unique retro aprons with those who enjoy color, creativity, and one-of-a-kind aprons that are sure to make you smile.

If you have an idea, favorite color(s), hobby or passion and would be interested in a retro apron created JUST FOR YOU; then send me an e-mail and I'll do my best to put something together that will sure to please you or that hostess with the mostess.

Sassy Snaks n' Tote

About a month ago I was at a fun little Quilt shop located in San Diego county ("Vista" to be exact) named "Fat Quarters". 

While ogling over all the wonderful fabrics and patterns I happened across some Letter Laminate that reminded me of the Vintage Typewriter Key necklaces from one of my favorite Artisans, Gina B from "Lizzy B".  It literally stopped me in my tracks - seriously. 

So much so that I bought up a smidge to make a reusable Sassy Snaks bag.

I decided to deliver (in February) this little goodie to Gina at the Great Park in Irvine. She comes up to Orange county most months (the first Sunday to be exact) to sell her wonderful vintage jewelry at the Flea Market.

Well, after our visit and her "like" of the Sassy Snaks bag she mentioned how it would be fun to have a matching "lunch bag" or "tote".

And that's all she had to say. I love a chance to create for someone who "wants" a handmade treat.

I called up "Fat Quarters" for some more additional "Letters" laminate and also added the "Numbers" laminate as an accent and "wah lah" - this is what I came up with (no pattern - just let the creative juices flow).  A fun little tote with a pocket full of numbers and a "hidden" message (Look closely).

Today I'm going to (hopefully) drop it off to Gina; assuming I can locate her amongst the vendors.  Wish me luck.

I love it! I can't believe I missed you today and my new lunch bag! I thought the snack bag was incredibly thoughtful but this is perfect! I will be there in April for sure!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
