I did a lot of sewing this weekend. I made my toddler blanket for a friend who just had a baby boy. She loved it because it was big. I shared her frustration of having a million baby blankets that were teeny tiny. It turned out great!
Then I made the Hobo bag from MADE. Love that blog! Her tutorial was great! My little girl needed a bag to tote her tap shoes to and from school. She helped me make it. Atleast she watched and was thrilled with the results. I used ribbon as the straps too and I like it!
My husband requested one to carry his lunch in to work! I guess I'll add that to the list!
Marketing your work is always a challenge when there are so many creative people working and selling on the internet. I recently contacted a bunch of blogs introducing my work to them. I have been featured this week at the following places:
Here is my biggest seller on Etsy so far...I've relisted it twice! I'm having a great time making and had my most successful month selling so far! I'm pretty excited.! Rosette Ribbon Bookmark in Pink
I would love to show you a picture of the item but Blogger is stupid and I haven't been able to upload pictures to my blog in awhile! I would love to show you my bookmarks and I once I have the patience I promise I will!:)
I wanted to make something for my new baby neice, Carys and didn't have a lot of time.
They didn't know what they were having until she arrived and I wanted to make her something really girly and frilly. This is what I came up with.
baby onesie or bodysuit
Pin your ribbon to the color of your shirt. Make it ruffled for extra girly-ness!:)
Sew your ribbon in place. Make sure to backstitch for extra security!
I made a couple of these. One with rick rack and one with some pretty eyelet lace. I,of course, didn't take pictures. I was really in a hurry to make them but they didn't take long at all! I think my sister-in-law liked them!
