Welcome To Our Blog

Hello! Our names are Elizabeth (aka Biz) and Heather, or you can just call us Bizy Janes! We are two friends who enjoy sewing and creating….so we joined ranks and started our small business this past January!

So far, we have created a shop on etsy, www.bizyjanes.etsy.com. We are looking forward in doing craft fairs and farmers markets in our local areas within the next couple months.

We have SO many great ideas, and have even been inspired by other crafters….especially The Farm Chicks! We pretty much dig them!




Twice a month we get together and share, sew, get new ideas, and just chat. If you could see us once one of us arrives at the other’s house! It’s a continual sharing time of ideas for about 30 minutes, non-stop…and we love it!

After sharing, there was one thing I, Heather, needed help with….getting the stink out of vintage hankies. We tried soaking them in baking soda and water, then cleaning them, but that did not work. While they were still damp, I thought that maybe (just maybe) having them dry out in the good ole’ sunshine would work. And well….it' worked! Ah, there is nothing like the smell of sunshine on your fabrics!


The last BJ Work Day, we started working on these cute backpacks, which Biz came up with on her own. She wanted to create something for her little man’s 2nd birthday and came up with an adorable Noah’s Ark Backpack!


So with her inspiration, we started sewing 2 backpacks.



Did I forget to mention we went to Joann Fabrics, ate Taco Time fast food for lunch (yummy), put the little man down for a nap, another trip to Joann’s (because we forgot one little item that was crucial in making the backpack) and got a latte for Biz before all the sewing? With all that running around and eating, we finished one backpack, and the other is in near completion. There would have been two done, but I did a little thing called “starting a blog”. :)

Here’s our newest addition to Bizy Janes Shop
