Indie Banditas new website!

I am working on our new website. It has taken days, hours, get the drift.
Within 24 hours, we will be up and running (hopefully) at I know....a LOT shorter! If anyone is any good at web design, I have a few questions for you.
We will keep this blog for photos and updates, but the new site for links to each of your shops.

Handmade on Bainbridge

Today, I met with several owners downtown on our little Island to discuss including them in our bazaar in June. They will each carry a "I sell handmade" sign that will be displayed on the 5th and 6th. We will have a map that will list each of these stores and they will run special sales to promote buying handmade. In return, hopefully this will help to raise money for our next bazaar in November! We are also working on our Indie Banditas website. We will list each of you "banditas (and bandits) and a link to your online store. Because I will have to pay monthly to have this site up and running, it will cost each of you 15.00 for the entire year and NO additional fees. I was thinking of giving each of those interested a special "bandita" nickname. Such as "bead bandita, crazy bandita, etc.". Anyhow, that's whats up for now.

Congratulations To LethaColleen!!

Hello friends (and art lovers)!

Please come join me for my very first gallery opening (!!!). I have 30ish pieces showing @ the Gilt Edge Society during April/May... There is an opening event and I would love for you to be there to celebrate with me! Please come!


The Gilt Edge Society

12154 4th Avenue (Belltown) - in between Bell & Wall

April 10th @ 7:00-9:00PM

The opening coincides with the Belltown Art Walk so take the opportunity to come out and support the local art scene and my own tiny part of it --- and if nothing else I’m sure to make a fool of myself through my awkward excitement and spill something on myself… That’ll be fun right!? J

Indie Banditas featured in an Etsy Treasury!
How exciting! Let's continue to get the word out. If you haven't mentioned the show on your blog or website, I encourage you to do so!

Country Cuttins

~~~A Little About ME~~~ I have been sewing for many years and will be offering a variety of sewn items, including many babies and children's things. But... I do like to dabble in other areas, and so you will see whatever my creative side decides to make at any given moment. All items are professionally finished and sewn in a pet/smoke free home. I will also be selling off extra supplies and fabric from time to time.

This cute and practical bib is made from 2 layers of co-ordinating flannel prints. The edges are serged and it has a snap closure. The bib front, from the neck to the bottom edge measures approximately 8".

The set also comes with 4 cloth wipes, which are perfect for clean up after eating. They are made from a layer of flannel and a layer of knit terry and serged around the edges.

TittaMe and Knit Flickr

Knit Flickr and Titta Me are two Etsy shops that are run by the same artist.. These tea towels are so sweet.
Silk table runner below is just beautiful.

Titta! (pronounced "tee-ta") is Swedish for "look at" or "watch". Children often shout this at the top of their lungs when they want to draw attention to themselves. We all want to be seen in our best light. In spite of today’s fashion trends, I believe there are quite a few girls out there who want to be noticed for the right reasons. My goal is to create brilliant, yet tasteful attire for girls of all ages, especially those entering their “tween” years and beyond. I believe style can be appropriate, flattering, and affordable!

Esthers Fabrics!

Where's a crafty girl to go when she's got to get some awesome supplies? Esther's of course!
Esther's employees and owner Jen Rhoads will bring some of their own handmade treasures to sell. As an added bonus, her store is located just one block away from the bazaar, so if you feel inspired, you don't have to wait to get home to get your supplies!
Visit their website at for a sneak preview of their inventory and classes!

Real Foods

A very happy welcome to the owners of Real Foods here on Bainbridge Island. They will be serving their yummy food during the bazaar so make sure to stop by for some of their delicious organic muffins, soups and sandwiches!

Spider Felt

Felt soap kit! How cool is this!

"Why would I want a felt soap?" you ask. Have you ever dropped a sliver of soap in the shower and watched it slip down the drain? Never again. As you use your felt soap, the bar inside the felt package dissolves slowly leaving a hollow ball. Typically lasting three times as long as your average bar of soap, every last sud is used in this efficient conveyance. Plus, the felt gently exfoliates your skin as you wash.

Awesome felt creations such as these cuffs and flowers will be at Spider Felts table.


Great homemade playdough. She has wheat and gluten free also!
