Emily's Studio/Workspaces

So... I recently rearranged my apartment and got rid of some extra "baggage" (i.e. ex-boyfriend's stuff) to make room for my Dream Studio.  It is still definitely a work in progress, but I thought it would be fun to document a little bit of the process.  I'll show some pics of where my creative prowess strikes, and through future posts, hopefully it will improve and keep me accountable for making it the way I want! 

Sewing area

Drawing/Drafting of Ideas Area

Painting Area

Organizational and Supply Area

(My couch separates the studio space from the living room)

So... I'd say it's maybe halfway to where I would like it to be.  Stay tuned for improvements:)
Also, Hannah and I worked on her workspace on Monday, but all I have are "before" pics and I think she might kick my butt if I posted those without posting her new and improved and ORGANIZED space!

Meditation pillow
(anyone have any tips on how to make it so that the filling doesn't get all lumpy???)

Zippered make-up bag with lining

Wallet/Checkbook cover

Key fobs


Linen-lined purse

Linen-topped purse

Just a smattering of wonderful goods; most of these are our beginning products and are just for our own personal use until we get a little more comfortable with the process.  Hope you enjoy and we will keep 'em coming!

Hello and Welcome!

Hello all of you out there in the blogging world and elsewhere!  My name is Emily; my sister, Hannah, and I have decided to start a blog in the name of our new, growing business, FlyChicks.  We've been reading blogs for a few months now and got so inspired that we decided it was time for us to launch.  Although we both have backgrounds in Fine Art, we recently learned to sew again and have been coming up with all sorts of fun ideas using all sorts of fabric. 

We're somewhat new at this sewing thing, so bear with us, but hopefully we'll get better as time goes on.  I want to post lots of pics since I am a very visual person, and hopefully, one day, we will feel confident enough to start giving tutorials.  I've set up an Etsy shop for us, but orders for things like handbags, headbands, key fobs, make-up bags, and more are backed up already!  So once we get the store stocked, I will post a link.  Meanwhile, I will just post pics of things we are working on.

Thank you for visiting, and we hope to see you often!
