Hello all! My Etsy shop is now open. I will be adding items as often as I finish them. There are more grocery totes on the way. I’m working on a small messenger bag for myself. If I like it, I will make some for the shop as well. To kick my Etsying off, I’m giving away this grocery bag.
If you would like to enter to win it, leave a comment and I’ll draw a winner the night of April 13th. Tell people you know about this–it’d tickle me pinker than this bag to give this bag away to someone other than my sweet friends and family that read this blog!
Tonight Nathan and I took lots of pictures of the bags I’ve sewn so far for the shop. Here’s a sneak peek. Tomorrow they will actually be listed at Etsy. I’ll have a surprise tomorrow for you readers out there too!
I’m so excited for this book (just in case you couldn’t tell by the post it note)!
I got it in the mail yesterday but I had a TERRIBLE headache, so I didn’t bother to look at it. Mostly I’m excited to start stamping on fabric. I’ve been experimenting with it (see the wee bit covering the table the book is on–it’s the same dandelion-inspired pattern I created for my curtain that I printed on blue fabric), but it would be nice to see how to really do it well. I imagine before long, I’ll make some curtains and pillows and put them in my shop. By the way, I’m almost ready to set up shop over at Etsy. My store will be called Elizabeth Made This. More about that tomorrow.
Mine certainly weren’t. So when I bought my sewing machine, I decided I needed to have my own fleet of cloth grocery bags. I LOVE them. They’re strong, they hold a LOT of stuff and they add color to what can be a stressful part of my week. I also use them every day for hauling stuff to school, the gym, the library…wherever. I will put these and other bags up for sale on Etsy when the setup details are taken care of in a couple of days. I will keep you posted. In the mean time, I need to sew!
