Amshina Handmade Gift Ideas Round Up 2018

Happy Tuesday!

It’s the week before Christmas! I am here to share with you my creative makes for handmade gift ideas 2018. These items were made specifically for the holiday in low quantities to give you some gifting ideas for your family and friends. If you missed my sharing on social media and my etsy shop- here’s a round up of what all made the list this year and may still be available in my shop for order or drop off ( Only if you live in Toronto :)).

Day 1- Dining Decor

Table napkins are still in. These are a great way to decorate your food festivities at the dining table or at the kitchen island.

Day 2- Stocking Stuffers

Little gifts and treats for a gift exchange or a fun, unique and useful gift under $20. The mini purses, the key fob and the pocket square.

Day 3- Cold Weather Fashion

These are all about the scarves, shrugs, vests and ponchos. Stay warm and stylish at the same time.

Day 4- Fashonista in the Kitchen

This category featured the colourful and durable potholders made from wax print cottons and double insul shine batting for maximum heat protection. They are pretty and functional too. The apron is another conversation piece. If you like the Flintstones then this fun chic apron is for you or that person you have in mind.

Day 5- Get Organized

These catch me all bags are great options for many things, travelling or just organizing pieces in your hand bag or closet. A variety to choose from.

Day 6- Ornaments

These were special. I know some families like to add a new piece to their tree every year. These were made using wax print scraps to create a fusion of colour and interest in each piece.

Day 7- Hair Care

These tell their own story of hair care but also of decor and sleeping comfort. Another great way to mix and match bed linens too.

These items can be found in my etsy shop: http:///www.etsy.com/shop/amshinaapparel

Here’s to wishing you guys an amazing week. Thanks for stopping by. Whether you are making items, shopping for your loved ones or just looking forward to the holiday with family and friends I wish you all the best as you plan. Is there anything in particular you appreciate about this time of year? Drop a line below and let me know. 🙂

A Pop up shop: Summer treats!

Hi Guys!

It’s a monthly check in :).

I trust you all have been having an awesome summer. If not, its not too late to make some summer memories :).

Hubby and I enjoying one of the outdoor fest! 🙂 My look: Amshina original Maxi

It’s been busy, busy, busy bee, on my end. I mean…where did the time go?Seriously though! Anywho, I have been working on all sort of fun projects throughout the summer. I will share these makes before the fall sewing gets too deep! The dress in the above photo was a new addition to the summer wardrobe for me. More dresses! 🙂

🙂 Moi

I am here to tell you about an upcoming pop up booth I will be having in Toronto on this Sunday 26th August and share some of those goodies I enjoyed making for this event. This is not my first pop up at the Kensington flea. I was actually there back in July this year. This flea is part of the pedestrian Sunday that takes place in Kensington Market in the downtown core of Toronto. A mix of tourists and summer loving people enjoying the festivities of a great neighbourhood in the city. There is a array of food and creative vendors like myself that add to this day in the city.

Last year was the first time I ventured into this pop up community with the Kensington Flea and it was a success. I met some amazing clientele and vendors and was of course inspired and encouraged to return yet another year. Like last year I was able to meet some great people in the market last month and I am looking forward to connecting with like minds yet again at this Sunday’s flea.

If you are in the city please feel free to stop by. There is a handmade goodie for everyone.

The creative sewing chronicles continues. If you are not yet logged on, follow me over on instagram @amshina for daily and weekly updates.

Blessings until next time!

Excited, nervous and driven. Possibilities, possibilities and more possibilities. But also fun and more fun. I have been planning since January end after my application was accepted. So now I am in sew mode and making those pieces and working with my amazing friends who are volunteering there time to be models on this special occasion.

My friends and family have been very supportive and have come along side me so far in many ways as I prepare for this event. Whether they are the show music director, volunteer models, back stage help, selling at my booth, fabric store runs, brainstorming ideas or just offering encouragement and support. They have been amazing, near and far!
