It has been a very long time since I have even visited this blog. Things have changed a lot over the last few years in our house. We moved from Oklahoma in 2014 to Illinois and now we are already looking ahead to our next move. We move a lot which is why I have a store on Etsy. It allows me to sell stuff from where ever we are living. We moved here in Illinois with three beautiful girl and we have added one handsome son to the mix.
Things are starting to settle down again and I'm having to find a new routine but I have managed to get some sewing down and have started posting to my store again. I missed making things for others. I love to sew but in my down time I spent time sewing for my kids. I had forgotten how much I loved sewing things for them. I have also been spending time teaching them to sew small projects. They are all at different levels but things are going well. That is another reason I use Etsy. I can post things as I have time to sew them.
I used to think that I wanted to make a lot of different things to sell and over the last couple of years I have realized that trying to keep up with many sewing projects is more stressful than stress relieving. So I have decided to sell only a few different things. I will be selling flannel baby blankets. I hemstitch around the edges so they can then be crocheted. I will sell some of them ready to be crocheted and some already done. I usually only buy enough fabric to do make one blanket and 2-3 burp clothes. I have posted a few of the finished ones on my store already. Here are a couple:
Here is a car seat blanket:
I will add table runners as I get them done as well. Right now I don't have any done and I'm sewing lots of gifts for Christmas so I probably wont add any til January.
Another item I would like to sell are full size blankets. Those take longer to make so I'll add them as I get them done.
If you have seen something on my store that you like but I don't add anymore don't hesitate to ask if I can make you one. If I have time I'd love to help you out.
I'll keep you posted as I add things to my store.
