So as you know, I bought myself a sewing machine last year for Christmas. I figured, oh, I'll make a few bags with it, and get tired of it like I do everything else.

So far, totally wrong.

I love it! I love seeing fabric, buying it, then making it into stuff. So far I've made some quilt tops (not yet turned into quilts, but they're still kind of pretty, methinks), a few purses for myself and others, and generally played around.

On Sunday, I made a super cute little fabric box out of the cheap interfacing I snagged at the Shalom thrift store on Saturday and some left over ladybug fabric. The friend I gave it to (well, her daughter) says she absolutely adores it, may steal it from her not-quite-3-year-old daughter for herself, and thinks I could totally sell them.

That's where Etsy comes in. I have a user name, and basically everything's set up except actually posting stuff. Should I make the jump, and go for it? I'm nervous - afraid of failing, really. Afraid of rejection from Internet strangers.

Meanwhile, I've got probably a dozen sets of three fabrics paired up, ready to make more adorable fabric boxes out of. Do I dare?


  1. I love it! It is such a great idea! When you think of how many people go onto Etsy, you're bound to have a buyer!! Good luck!!

  2. Go for it! Make the jump! Dare to make that dream a reality! You will regret waiting!
