in starting a new business on my own.

a giveaway each month, and previews of new items

This is a bag I made as a gift a few days ago. I really like making bags out of upholstery fabric but they are usually much smaller. I think it turned out pretty neat, the picture really isn't as good as the real thing. After I took the picture I decided to put a couple of nice wooden buttons on it as well. I'm thinking larger over night bags might be a nice thing to make in the future?!


  1. That is soooooo cute! I would love one in an overnight size! How much?????

  2. Thank you! The cost would depend on the material and size but if you want to talk more specifically about what you want, you can post a "conversation" on my Etsy store and we can go from there. I will be having a giveaway soon and the item I'm giving is a larger size bag but not quite over night size. Check back for details on how to enter the giveaway! : )



About Me

My photo
My name is Shawn and I am a stay at home Mom of two boys and also a student. After many years of school and a Master's degree in Psychology, I decided to go back to school for Lactation Consulting. I spend most of my time with my children, and working on my sewing projects. Currently the sewing projects have to due with my little side business of making things for babies, which will be the main focus of this blog. I also love spending time with my husband but I see him very little now because he is busy with work and paramedic training. We have been together ten years now and married five! I love making things for special people in my life, I feel like it's something I can do to stay connected and maybe they will think of me when they see the blanket, pillow, curtain, or whatever else I have made. Since I am a somewhat introverted kind of person sewing seems to fit me, it's a way to express myself creatively, and put love into each piece, for each person. My life is quite challenging at times but I make sure to think about things I am grateful for each day.
