You Have Me In Stitches √


This month our featured designer is Marianne Colschen.  A long time “beadie bud” and talented artist, Marianne has been an important part of our Pennywise family since the beginning.  Here is Marianne helping in the Pennywise booth at the Auntie Amy’s convention in 2005!



Marianne’s first project is a fun little sewing kit that she found at a Dollar Tree store.  She embellished the top of the kit with coordinating papers and ribbon adding a clear micro beaded  ivory paper flower and beaded border.

O’So Sticky Tape sheets can be cut with a personal die cutter which makes O’So more versatile and exciting than ever before!

The sentiment, “You have me in stitches” is from Close To My Heart.

If you would like to have this darling sewing kit for your very own, just place an order from the Pennywise Arts website this week – one lucky person will find it as a surprise in their envelope!


  1. I love it! Micro beaded flowers, I am going to try that. Thanks

  2. This is darling, Marianne! Were the flowers diecut? I'm afraid to try the O'So in my Expression without some more encouragement. ;-)

  3. Cute idea to spruce up the little sewing kit!
