I also have some fun patterns I'd love to get finished for X, and in truth, they'd be very quick to complete.
But most of the sewing I have been doing hasn't been for myself. Instead, it's been for my Etsy shop, which is just fine with me! :) Within the last month or so I've complete 3 more interchangeable needle cases and I'm working on perfecting a crochet hook case. I'm still working on the hook case, but hopefully soon...
Pictures you say? You'd like to see pictures? Oh....okay. :)
These first two cases were custom orders I had. The first was fabric I chose for the woman after a few discussions about what she liked.
The second case was fabric that was sent to me by the buyer. I certainly don't mind if someone has a favorite fabric they want to use!
The last case is one that's currently posted in my shop. Being from Iowa, and having been around a lot of farms, I have an affinity for John Deere. A lot of my family worked for John Deere, as did/does my husband's family. They're a huge employer in our area. So when I go shopping for fabric, I always love looking at the John Deere fabric. I can't help it. And this time I decided to actually buy some (along with a lovely coordinating green) and make it into a needle case. I figure, someone, somewhere along the lines, will feel the same way about this case as I do. And if not, I'll just use it. :)
I've also been planning some other changes for the shop. I would love to have some sock yarn listed, but I just don't have the means to do that right now. I do plan to have stitch markers soon, though! Christmas ones, even! :) So stay tuned, please check in periodically to see what you think. :)
