OPEN 24/7.

 

 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!

  1. I am wishing you LOTS of customers! Your pieces are stunning! (And I can´t believe your girls did not claim them for themselves!)

  2. I’m so impressed, Erin! The dresses are all so beautiful. They each deserve a blog post of their own! Your fabric choices are perfection. And you apparently have one heck of a stash! I can’t even choose a favorite. Beautiful!

  3. Great job on your clothes! I bet they will sell crazy-fast! Also that’s why I opened an etsy shop too- gotta have some way to pay for fabric. Though mine is kind of neglected right now bc I’ve been so busy with other things.

    1. Thanks Brooke! I remember you have a shop! I know I’ve been to it before… I am riding this wave, but I’m a little scared once all 3 of my kiddos are home for summer- will I ever get time to sew???!!! ha… I’ve been rocking the late-night and it’s killing my sleep habits. -e

  4. So very exciting! And I love all of these dresses! Enjoy that late night fabric shopping–I’m automatically deleting any fabric sale emails I get so I’m not tempted to buy more fabric!
