You may or may not have heard that I have been turning my attention more and more to my sewing machine and have opened up an Etsy shop called Sew Many Ruffles. I really enjoy all of my paper projects but wanted to add a little something else to my crafting pursuits.
I really am not new to sewing at all, and have made many a baby quilt, bags, pillows, costumes and other things for around the house or for fun. I think I probably made my first stuffed doll when I was under 7. In the last couple of years though, my machine had seen a lot more paper than fabric and so I decided I wanted to change that.
So you are probably wondering, how do you get from playing around with a sewing machine for fun to opening an Etsy store selling handmade custom boutique dresses? Well, I don't really know except that I seem to have the entrepreneurial spirit ingrained in me and when I love making things I just have to share them. Since I can't really afford to just give them away, "Hey a girl's got to be able to buy new fabric!", I decided that it would be best to try to sell them, and so Sew Many Ruffles came in to being.
I am still doing all of my other crafty pursuits, having lots of fun creating for Lori Whitlock and Petaloo and teaching Scrapbooking and Silhouette classes monthly, so you will see be able to come here for inspiration in those areas but now I'll also be sharing a little bit of my sewing projects as well.
Please help me spread the word about my Etsy shop, Sew Many Ruffles by liking me on Facebook. I have a Facebook Fan Page here as well as a blog dedicated to Sew Many Ruffles here. I'll also post specials and discounts here and on my Facebook Page so be sure to choose notifications when you are there "Liking" me.
Have a great day!
