I turned 40 this year and it dawned on me that I really should be doing more of the things I really care about. The things that are really me. Start doing more things my way instead of worrying what everyone else thinks. Crafting for Etsy has been a real experience and one where I feel I'm learning a lot about myself. I think I'm beginning to see who I really am.
It occurred to me that I've actually been looking for a change with my Etsy shop. And sometimes a change forward is, in a way, a change backward. One of the things I miss doing is sewing for other people. So first of all I am going to bring back some sewn bags. Just the Sling tote for now as that's been so popular. And whilst I sell lots of the pattern for the Sling, I also get a lot of requests from people who can't sew and want the bag made up for them. I had a little shop around at one of my fave lil spots this morning and found a bunch of cute stuff. What do you think? Can you see my fetish for retro fabric showing through?! Hopefully some of you non-sewists out there will like the choices:
