On Friday, my new sewing machine arrived….and I promptly got busy with sewing projects. Here are a few:
I am LOVING my new machine!
Here are a couple of other “experiments” that I worked on:
I ordered some high buck glitter wanting to make some glittered letters…and I’ve been unable to locally find the chipboard that I need to make them. So in the meantime I’ve been trying to come up with other ways to use the glitter. I LOVE the “Joyeux Noel” banner….once it is completely dry, I am going to see how well it wears. I would love to make and sell some of these, but they will need to be able to survive shipping and storage.
I hope to soon be opening my etsy store….right now I’m trying to decide on pricing. That is a little more difficult than I anticipated. I want items to be affordable!….but I would also like to pay myself more than $1 per hr. And Man would like for me to recover the cost of the new machine….and the Cricut….and all the materials that I’ve bought. In other words….he would like for my hobby to turn a profit (even if it is only a small one). Funny….I don’t expect him to make a profit fishing or hunting or whatever he may get involved in. Oh well….men sometimes view things differently.
Well….I’m off to vacuum. There are little bits of string EVERYWHERE!
Have a wonderful, creative day!
