handmade sale

Just like so many of you I am a maker. I enjoy sewing things all - the - time. When I'm happy, I sew. When I'm sad, I sew even more. When I'm in between, I still sew and enjoy every single minute of it. 

All this sewing, of course, means that I have way too many pouches, bags, quilts, pillows, etc. sitting in my cabinet taking up precious real estate and not being used.

So, I decided that every once in a while, when things get sort of out of control, I'll do a handmade sale and put all the brand new, lovingly sewn, but not needed in our house items for sale in my etsy shop.

Here's just a sampling of what's available for this first edition of handmade sale.

Hope they'll find good new homes soon.

PS:Tomorrow is our first day of summer break. Wish me luck, keeping three kids from being glued to some sort of screen all the time is hard work. There might be quite a lot of stress relieving sewing in my future :).



  1. Hi Svetlana,
    Screens are such a draw for kids. And pulling them away is so hard.
    One of my favorite things to do with kids are science experiments. Kids older than 5 can safely spend a very long time adding vinegar to baking soda and watching it fuzz. To slow the process down, get them to measure a tablespoon of baking soda and then add the vinegar a drop at a time (from an eye dropper). One can even add food coloring. It's also fun to get them to build some kind of race track for little wheeled vehicles they built. You should be able to find lots of inexpensive ideas in books in your public library. Good luck.

  2. Good luck with the kids! I hope it is a great summer for you all!

  3. I recommend Microsoft Family Safety to control the amount and schedule of screen time. I was pulling my hair out before adding this program, and now it's a breeze to control. It doesn't work for Kindles, though. It is free. I love your rainbow pillow!

  4. Great idea for finding new homes for some of your creations! And good luck this summer with the kids! I get onto my husband and his brother for being glued to a screen too often, especially during family time.

  5. I wondered how on earth you put to use the plethora of bags you've made lately ;-)
    I have a bag making question for ya (or maybe a post idea...) How do you press your final projects? Your makes always look so professional! I can't seem to figure out how exactly to press my pouches, once I get the things together, so my bottoms and sides are never as sharp as they should be (and as yours seem to be).
    I hope your sewing this week is of the happy variety ~ Tracy

  6. Good luck with the sale! Ugh, I work in a school and we are on a week break now and go back next week for another SEVEN weeks before our six week holiday :-(
