Come join us for a teddy bear workshop with Wendy from Scary Stories — whether you're in Brooklyn or anywhere in the world. Stop by for our weekly Craft Night in our online multi-user chat room, the Virtual Labs, for a live online demo at 5 p.m. ET, or in person at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn anytime between 4-8 p.m. at 55 Washington Street, Suite 512 in Brooklyn, New York. Craft Night is a time to make things, sharpen your craft skills, and connect with fellow crafters.
This week, on Monday, December 14, Wendy Gardner will show you how to turn any old shirt into an adorable teddy bear for a great holiday gift idea. There's no better way to clear out those closets and gain a handmade gift in the process! So, pinch a nice cotton button-down from the closet of your husband/boyfriend/grandpa and come on down to the Etsy Labs for some fluffy stuffy fun!

This week I was interviewed by CBS News for a piece about making holiday gifts for cheap. I was filmed sewing my Shirt Bears..Teddy Bears made from my husband's shirts!!
It was supposed to air today on the CBS local news here in New York..and all the affiliates.BUT I think I was bumped by the Hurricane story..so hopefully it will air tomorrow.
You can see the Shirt Bears..I like to call them "Eddies" on my Etsy Store here...stay tuned for more Shirt Bear news soon..

Yesterday I worked with my son's class at his school to make these cute pillows for Passover. We used big fabric samples from an upholstery swatch book, combined with nice cotton kid-friendly prints I brought with me. Each child chose two pieces of fabric..and helped pin them together, sew them on the machine and then stuff them. They will take them home to use at the Seder during the part when you're supposed to lean or recline. So easy to make and the kids were very proud of themselves!

Today I took my kids to a birthday party at Madame Alexander. For those of you that don't know it, it's a Doll Company here in NYC that's been around for about 80 years. We had a tour of the factory, watched a man making tiny doll hats, saw miniature clothes being sewn and little wigs being brushed. It was pretty neat..and then we had cake!
Back at home later this evening my kids were very busy and very quiet for an hour while I was not paying attention..suddenly they came running out and surprised me with these..! They had started their own doll factory and made these dolls of our family. They only used what they could find..tape, paper and yarn..how amazing is that!!
