recent sewing and my own etsy shop!

I've thought about it for so long and I've finally done it...I just opened up my own etsy shop! I recently finished sewing a few bags and some crayon rolls to add to the store. Actually I've been doing a lot more sewing lately, and not just for the shop! Let's see, so far for September I've made:
-a bag for my sister with a matching coin purse for her birthday
-a coloring pencil roll for my niece
-a baby blanket and bib for my co-worker's baby gift

My sister really liked her bag and coin purse and has been using it every day since I gave it to her (or at least every time I've seen her since then haha). And my niece loved her pencil roll. What I love the best about making things is when the person you give it to really likes it! It just makes my day...

Here's a picture of the baby blanket and bib (I did the calligraphy on the tag too!):

goodies in the mail & completed projects

I love getting packages in the mail...especially when it's fabric from and my very own Gocco! I really like the pear fabric now that I see it in person. I wish I had ordered more. I am thinking of making an apron for a friend's daughter with either the pear or the lemon/citrus fabric, and a crayon roll for my youngest son with the car fabric. The possibilities are endless.

I ordered the Gocco from etsy seller alittlegoodness. I've been looking for one for the past year. Gocco printers are hard to come by because they've discontinued making them here. You can only get them from Japan. You can find out more about Gocco, where you can get them, and other Gocco-related resources here:

This weekend I did a little bit of sewing. I made 2 art pencil rolls and a crayon roll for my etsy shop :)

And here's a picture of the bag I made for my sister's birthday!
