A Few More Kits

Here are two more new kits in the shop, Perfect Red and Rose Pink:

The red is absolutely gorgeous and I was very, very tempted to keep it for myself. I can always dye myself a kit any time, so it's better just to share!

The pink kit is a little different from my usual kits in that it has a non-stretch lace. I've always put stretch lace in the kits, but I thought I'd try this one as someone might actually prefer a non-stretch lace.

Both of these would make beautiful items combined with the Just Black kit that is available.

BTW, that special tie dyed kit sold! If you liked that one and would like more of that style - I'm actually thinking of hand painting a few kits just for fun - let me know!

I'll be taking inventory and ordering new supplies tomorrow. I've already got some new lace on the way, and I'll show you that when I get it. If you have a request for custom kits with wider elastics or in a color that has previously sold, just let me know! Email me: summersetbanks "at" gmail "dot" com!

New Kits in the Shop!

I just listed some new kits in the Etsy shop, and will list a couple more at the end of the week. There is a Soft Yellow, a Pale Iris (a favorite purple from last summer), Just Black, a Deep Bronze, which turned out really nice, although I thought I was going to get a Milk Chocolate:

I've also listed a double kit in a Peachy Pink and Black:

Lastly, I've listed an Amethyst kit, which is a bit unusual. Normally, I *don't* want mottled or streaky fabrics. I sell those kits at a discount and am happy that some one will use them for practice or cut around the not so great areas. This time, I've got a kit with purposeful color variations - very much like the hand dyed quilt fabrics that are mottled in the same way (Check out fabric dye artist VickiW's hand dyed cottons in her Etsy shop!). If you want a really unique kit and really like those sorts of fabrics for quilts and other crafts, this kit is for you - you can have artisan style fabrics inside and out! Check out the coloration, *everything* has this coloration to it:

Look for some shade of pink and some shade of red later this week. I never know what I'll call them until they're out of the dye and dry!

Bargain Kit Available - Light Cantaloupe or Orange Sherbet

Kit Has Been Sold!!!

I've got a kit that is not quite perfect available. The liquid satin is a bit mottled, it isn't too bad, and I didn't notice it when folding it. When I went to photograph it under different lights, the flaw became apparent. The color is a nice soft light cantaloupe or orange sherbet color.

If you'd like this kit, it is $10.00, plus $5.00 for Priority mail shipping. Please email at summersetbanks "at" gmail "dot" com, and I'll send you an invoice via Paypal.

Kit Has Been Sold!!!

New Lace!

I was able to purchase some new lace last week and it arrived this week. This one happens to be very wide, at about 7" wide, and can be used in a variety of ways if you're creative.

I just received more supplies today in the mail, so new kits should be ready and on Etsy by the middle of next week!
