New at The Humble Penguin : Passport Covers!

Well hello there, everyone!
I've been busy planning and sewing and dreaming about The Humble Penguin lately, so I thought I would share a few updates. :)

First of all, there is a new line of items available now - Passport Covers!

Robots Passport Cover from The Humble Penguin
Comics Passport Cover from The Humble Penguin
Coral Flowers Passport Cover from The Humble Penguin
Aqua Dots Passport Cover from The Humble Penguin
I still have more of these to add over the next few days - so check back to see all the styles!

Fold-over clutches will hopefully be finished and coming soon. The first time I attempted to piece things together, I did it a little backwards and had to take everything apart. Ugh! So you can see why I'm procrastinating working on those. ;) 
You can keep checking this section of my shop for their arrival!

Sorry for the cell-phone picture.
These are adorable in person, though!
I have also decided to not go forward with making tablet sleeves. There are just too many different dimensions for all the tablets out there, and I worry that I'll never have the right size in the right fabric! Too many variables to try and predict. However, I am MORE than happy to create a custom one if anyone would like! :) 

So there you have it... a quick summary of what's happening in my shop. 
Don't forget, I absolutely L-O-V-E custom orders, so I can create any of my items in a different fabric for you. (Plus, custom orders let me add to my fabric hoarding collection)

Just Keep Sewing...

Even though Dory actually wanted Marlin to keep swimming, not sewing, it's just the same.

I actually have this written up on my dry-erase board in my sewing room. Complete with little fishes surrounding it. :) 

So, today my goal is to 

I have had SO many ideas for The Humble Penguin lately. Having so much inspiration is completely awesome, but it's also totally overwhelming because there just isn't enough time in a day to put all the ideas into action. 

Wednesday is a bonus day off for me this week. So I'm planning to have another sewing marathon later in the week, too.

So far today I've cut pieces for a whole bunch of new items including:
Passport Covers
Fold-over Clutches
E-Reader Sleeves*

*I'm not sure if the E-Reader sleeves will work out, but I'm working on it! 

So, here's hoping everyone else is really productive this week, too!
Just Keep ____-ing! :D

Oh! I recently started a Tumblr.  I don't really "get" it yet - but you should follow me!
