Something I do
I went to fashion design school, technically it was textile design school and merchandising school, I learned to sew there. I knew how to use a sewing machine before that because when I was a little girl my mom taught me how to use her 1978 Singer with which I would make scrunchies and sell them at school. And I admit, I also wore scrunchies, but hey it was the 80’s! OK, maybe the early 90’s but I was only a pre teen and Carrie Bradshaw wasn’t around to tell me how wrong it truly was. Fast forward 20 something years. I still love to sew, in college I made lots of going out tops and a few dresses and even a coat. And now thanks to the amazing Etsy I can sell my wares all over the world! This is much easier than walking around asking random people if they would like to buy your creation. It started a couple of years ago with number tees that label kids with their age. I haven’t sold a ton, but a few hear and there, enough to keep my sewing skills in check and satisfy my sewing bug. In the next few years I plan to make many many dresses and tops and shorts and anything else I can for my girls, check out my pinterest board I have plenty of projects to start on my things to make for my girls board. But f or now, time is limited so I fill the random Etsy order when I get one and keep my girls outfitted in their own personalized initial oneseis. If you havn’t heard of Etsy Please check it out, it is the most amazing online market place of crafters and artisit selling thier own handmade creations. All the sellers are supper friendly and will create custom items almost always. Its the best place to buy gifts for friends!
