So I didn’t have a super duper crafty weekend. I did get a few things done, but I think I’m in a crafting rut. All my purses are beginning to feel the same. I think I need to get a Japanese craft book for some inspiration. Will anyone share with me their favorites?
And, I feel like I’m at a crossroads as I decide where to go with my sewing. I’ve done a couple of craft shows with minimal success, but I enjoy sewing and selling my products. I considered buying my fabric wholesale to increase my profit, but most wholesale places expect you to buy an exorbitant amount (i.e. $750) each time – and I’m not ready for that. I can sew, but so can a lot of people. What makes me unique? I’ve gotten a couple of books that I’m reading to help me make a decision:
Both are good reads, but both are making me feel that maybe this needs to remain just a hobby. I am, after all, a mom, and I don’t really want another job. In addition, my 4 year old will turn 5 this summer and officially start Kindergarten and since I’m homeschooling, I really should focus on finding a curriculum, reading up on different teaching theories, and all that.
I did clean my iron this weekend. See this iron looking all sweet and innocent? Well, I have never cleaned an iron my whole life and I thought it might be a good thing to do. Look what came off of her?
