On a bit of a whim, I opened an etsy shop. I have always tinkered with the idea, and then at the beginning of the year started making some things, but sort of set it all aside for a while. A month ago or so, I picked it all back up and just started sewing like a crazy lady. At the moment my kids really don’t need any more clothes, so it was fun to focus on producing things for others. My angle was/is to just make the things I like. That’s it. If they sell, then I’ll make more! Of course, it’s summertime, and you all know I fell in love with this pattern, so I pumped out many of them. I think they’re perfect summer attire. I hope my buyers love them. I am considering making a few pairs of these for the boys out there, and I’m thinking already about items for Fall.
I will mention that part of the reason for opening the shop is to blow through some of my current fabric stash. I want to sew a lot, but I simply cannot afford to buy all the fabric to just make things for my family. It just feels excessive when my kiddos have hand-me-downs galore! I hope that after a few more sales (I’ve already had two- wooohoo!) I can go back to doing what I do best- late night online fabric shopping.
Anyway, hope you’ll check it out!
