It’s been kind of quiet around here this week. That’s because I’ve been busy getting ready to open my etsy shop! I’m really pleased with how it all looks, I think all the hard work I’ve put into it was worth it. Take a look and make sure you tell me what you think 🙂
I’ve also created a whole bunch of social media accounts for the shop! Follow along for updates, discounts and inspiration 🙂
Now everything in my shop has been made, photographed and listed I will have some time to do some more blog-related projects – yay! I have lots of ideas and I can’t wait to get stuck back in again 🙂
You guys, I have some exciting news! I’ve been doing a lot of sewing, and in mid May I plan to open an Etsy shop! I have been collecting second-hand and vintage fabric and sewing it up into these cute little elasticated waist skirts. I’ll be selling mini, midi and maxi varieties! The skirt above was the first one I made, and I just love the sixties fabric. It’s been so much fun having a big project like this to work on, and although I don’t expect to be making a living wage from selling on Etsy, it feels so good to be taking my employment into my own hands to some extent.
My yellow sewing machine makes sewing a lot more fun!
My fabric stash is getting a little out of control…
Just some of the beautiful fabrics that I’ve picked up this month
I have to say, it’s handy having an excuse to browse car boot sales and charity shops weekly, and I’m definitely getting to know my sewing machine a lot better (and it’s limitations – I wish it let me adjust the width of my stitches.) I’ll keep you updated with my progress, and when I expect to open. Wish me luck!
