little fabric gems

Look at this beautiful shop of fabric wonders!  Nico Designs is the featured etsy blogger for the month of January.

I love these sweet little shoes.

This Fiesta tote is so fun!

And here's a sweet upcycled pear pincushion.

NICO's latest obsession is her wonderful art dolls like Gertie .  You simply must go to her shop and read the stories these dolls have to tell.

"Live each day as if it were a gift."  This is the quote at the top of Erika's blog.  (Yes, Erika is the name of the delightful person who owns NICO's shop and blog.)  I love this cute hat upcycled from a sweater.  She tells how to make it HERE
She has a tutorial on making baby leg warmers, too, but you'll have to go to her blog to find it.
a little bit about Erika and NICO Designs--Erika is a SAHM with two very young children.   She is inspired by her family.  (In fact, there is a special connection between her father and the name of her shop--it's her father's nickname for her.)  Creating and sewing is her fun and sanity.  She designs all her products with style and functionality in mind.  Using 100% cotton fabrics,  Erika combines new, repurposed, recycled, or upcycled materials.
