Both are Aerlit shuttles. I'm finding that most of my mail order customers prefer shuttles without bobbins while my local customers prefer Aeros and then Aerlits. I'm thinking my next batch of shuttles will only be Moonlits and maybe Sunlits.

Just a quick post letting you know there's only 4 shuttle & bag sets and 1 shuttle with no bag left at etsy. I put up 2 decorated shuttles at ebay just to see if they would sell there. Here's the pics:

Below are pics of some of the decorated shuttles and bags I have up at Etsy and Ebay. I use either Aerlit or Moonlit shuttles. Some don't have matching bags.
This one is at Etsy. I do buy a lot of fabrics and papers with butterflies. I try not to cover every set with them.
These moonlit shuttles have paper instead of fabric like I usually use. One has a butterfly and the other a hummingbird. The bottom one is at Etsy. The other has already sold.
This one has the same fabric on both sides. I usually use 2 matching fabrics. Look for it at Ebay.
I love pansies and have had this fabric for a while. Like the bear fabric I used for a set I wrote about in my last post, this one has been on my fabric shelf not being used because I 'was saving it'. Time to stop saving and start using. I'm leaving the "she who dies with the most fabric wins" club. This set was at Etsy but it's already sold.
Gray dots are not something you often see so when I found this fabric, as a fan of dots, I had to buy some. I'm glad I did cause it matched this butterfly print fabric I had bought the month before. This set is at Etsy.
Now I can get back to work on my patterns. It's been SO rainy & dreary. I need to take pics for various patterns I'm updating and new ones I'm working on. A few weeks ago I found the majority of my pattern pics had been ruined so I decided to take advantage of it and take new pics for some of them. Since I take my pics outside I need the weather to cooperate.

This is one of the shuttle/bag sets I've listed at my Etsy store today. This one is so cute with the sailor teddy bears. I've been saving that quilters quarter for a while but finally decided it was time to stop looking at it and use it.
This one is another fabric I had stored on my fabric shelves but this time it was because it never worked for any of my dolls. I think it looks great for the bag.
I love these fabrics so I've made others like this set but I used different color cats.
Prices go from $16 - $17 for these. You'll find them at my Etsy store!
I still have 3 more sets and 4 shuttles that don't have matching bags to list. Keep checking back, Thanks!

I had a BAD surprise today when I pulled out the box that holds the pics I use for pattern covers. Most of them were stuck together!!!!! Guess when I watered the plants on the shelf above them (when????) I must have spilled water on the box. Every pic of the new mermaid is 'glued' together. That's about 30 pictures 😢 What a huge waste. I tried heat and water but nothing is working so now I have to order new ones. I think I'll take some new pictures for some of the patterns. I never was happy with the dragonfly riders pic.
I have the new legs done for the bird riders and yes they do stand! Now for a new cover pic and wouldn't you know it, the old ones where hardly damaged.
