Pantone 2018 Color of the Year

Posted in Reviews

Yesterday Pantone released their color of the year for 2018 :


I get a kick out of their artist statement on the meaning of the color Ultra Violet:

“A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future…

…..Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets….”  

As an artist, I like the medium tone and that is not a harsh, jarring color.  As a seamstress, I know my customers who go crazy over purple, will love anything made with this Ultra Violet.

I like this color. It’s a nice calm, shade of blue-purple that is not too harsh or too pastel. It would be a nice accent in any home, whether in a painting, on a wall, as pillows, or furniture.  It’s a color that looks good on most people as far as clothing goes.  There are so many people who love purple, I think Ultra Violet will be a big hit.


Tennis, Golf, and Butterfly Smartphone Clutches

Posted in clutches, and Sewing

I have sewn new smartphone clutches that are perfect for the summer season. One is freshly listed and the others are a sneak peak for my readers.

Tennis Smartphone Clutch

This pink and white tennis ball smartphone clutch is perfect for the tennis player, tennis fan, and for anyone on the go.  It has an inside zipper pocket as well as 2 other 3 x 4 inches pockets.

The 9 x 5.5 inches is perfect for any of the larger smartphones on the market and still has plenty of room for your money, and other items.

Coming to SibStudioSewing later today and tomorrow:

Golf Smartphone Clutch

I had some fun with the pink and white polka dots lining to mimic the golf balls on the outside of the purse.

Calico Butterfly Smartphone Clutch

This purse is so pretty and summery. It is a great size for those days that you don’t want to lug around a large pocketbook.

Perfect size clutch

Enjoy your day!

Happy Monday! Hope everyone’s week was a good one 🙂

I have new items in both shops. I finished the Dragonfly Foldover Clutch last week. I had the clutches cut out and ready to sew on my previous post:

Dragonfly Fold Over Clutch

I love this satin fabric.  It is a heavy weight satin with really beautiful metallic pink, lavender, green, and blue dragonflies. I cut this clutch with an angle for interest when it is folded over.

The perfect size clutch for your phone and makeup items.

Inside is  lined with pink satin. It has 4 pockets as well as plenty of room for your larger smartphone and makeup. I made 2 of these clutches and both are up on my shop.

I also have a new painting up on my SibStudio art shop:

Pink jellyfish painting

I had a lot of fun with this painting. I like the narrow canvas because it lend itself well to focusing on the jellyfish and it’s tentacles.  I added silver glitter paint for some of the tentacles so that it catches the light a gives a little illusion of movement.

The silver paint I used didn’t have enough glitter – really, can you ever have too much glitter?! I added more glitter to the paint and into the wet paint.

Glitter tentacles

The tentacles really sparkle when they catch the light and gives the airy look of that jellyfish have as they float pass.   Both of these are listed on my Etsy shops. You can find links to my shops on the above menu .


New Foldover Clutches

Posted in Sewing

I have been working on new purse designs. My latest is a folder clutch.

Camo Fold Over Clutch

The camo clutch has faux or vegan leather corners.  I have been paying with making the top angled so that when it folds over it adds a little pizzazz.

The clutch is roomy enough to fit everything you need in your clutch. And I like to make the insides fun as well as practical.  The camo clutches have a inside zipper pocket as well as 2 regular pockets for your id, money, lipsticks, etc.

This clutch has pink and brown damask cotton lining and pockets

The Camo Fold Over Clutches are posted on my shop. I have more to come!

I have been sewing and painting away over the past months. Lots of custom sewing  and painting orders for customers, and designing new items as well.  Time for some updates!

Some fun fabrics and all with vinyl fused linings.

Being listed this week are some new cosmetic bags. Lots of fun fabrics and all have fused vinyl lining.  I like the vinyl lining because is makes it easy to wipe your bag clean of makeup dust and minor spills.

These makeup bags make fun party favors for bridesmaids or bachelorette parties. I am always happy to make more so you have enough for all your guests.
