Just arrived. Exactly as pictured and just what I needed.
Fabric, Sewing Machine, and I have played together for 54 years :)
How did you start your shop? How does it all work?
My shop is not my beginning........just another chapter in this
love affair that I have with fabric. Etsy is the playground where I meet all my friends. It's my happy place :)
I started sewing Barbie doll clothes when I was 8, made my school clothing when I was 12, and converted my mother's livingroom into a dress shop when I was 14. In my adult life I made smoking jackets for gentlemen, dresses and suits for the ladies, and sold more satin and silk victorian corsets on Ebay than I can remember.
Now I just sew for fun!!! I like making my little gift tote bags and fabric gifts. I just feel like I am playing again and getting money for my piggy bank. When you are still doing something that you loved as a kid, it is never work, and you never have to grow up :)

There is no wholesale price. My items have been priced very low so that everyone can receive a good deal. One item costs the same as one of 100 items because each is individually made with the same amount of time and quality.

What I mean by that is I make "gift tote bags" and I have been asked to make so many changes that in the end what the customer really wants is a diaper bag or a travel bag, etc..........I don't do those........I am a gift bag shop. I sew for Holidays and Special Fun Events :)
