Sewing with a Purpose

Here's a great article called Sewing with a Purpose

Quote from article

As a non-citizen and a new mother at the time, she didn’t feel safe attending protests, but still wanted to have an impact. So, she decided to embroider protest banners and make a lending library for them, accepting banner donations so those who feel unsafe attending a protest can still participate. “Make a banner, donate it, and someone else can take it out,” Sifuentes says.

Super Hero Pillow Cases Los Chiquitos

Currently sold out but more are coming.

Batman Can be purchased here

Captain America Can be purchased here

Star Wars Can be purchased here

I have been sewing up some new pillow cases and I am really concentrating on Super Heroes and Heroines. I love the movies but I was a fan before the current trend. I used to collect comic books and when the local store left, I didn't buy anymore. There wasn't a place to buy them. That local comic book shop came back but now I don't work near there anymore plus it has gotten expensive and I have so many already. I use to collect only female comic books and the only exception was Wolverine. I collected Catwoman, Elektra, X-Men and any short series ones like Storm, Black Cat, etc...

Anyway, looking forward to Avenger Infinity Wars.
You can purchase any of these pillow cases at Los Chiquitos. Plus I have more Marvel Heroes and DC heroes in my shop including the Avengers, Superman and Green Lantern.

I have been making a lot of earrings from Fairy inspired to Day of the Dead inspired. I love the bright colors and I love the combination of black and white. I have so many items to put up not only on Erika's Chiquis Jewelry but also on Los Chiquitos , Erika's Chiquis , Erika's Supplies and Dingo Dongo Biscuits.

It will take me months to get all of the items up. I have patchwork skirts, pillow cases, liners, earrings, hair accessories, bracelets and the list goes on. I will also try to keep up with the blog now that I don't have homework anymore.

Keep an eye out for more frequent posts.
