As you may have heard me say in the past, "I have no hobbies."
Well, I DO like to sew, but I have to have a reason to do anything. I don't enjoy riding snowmobiles around the field - but I love driving snowmobiles up to the cabin. I don't love riding horses around the park - but I love a nice long trail ride or packing trip. I have to have a purpose to spending the time...and money!
I'd love to sell them, but there are people out there practically giving clothes away, so I will never really make much money off this hobby.
But, Oh! It feels good. My house is a disaster, since I'm sewing at the kitchen table...
...and since I'm busy sewing, my kids practically get away with murder....
.....and when I'm on a roll, my kids run amuck - and eat anything since I am too busy to even stop and feed them!
I loved Barbies when I was young. I loved to dress and style them. I find it makes me super happy to make a set of clothes for girls who want them but can't pay $50 for a DOLL COAT! Or $14 for a pair of pants.
I do sell to anyone who needs or wants though. This is a sample set.
1 fancy dress, complete with shoes and an accessory (hat, or purse, etc.)
2 1/2 skirts(one of them is reversible)
All for $30
I find I'm very happy sewing.
I like it a lot!
OH! and especially when I make a matching outfit for the girls! They love it and I love to see them love it!
