Finally here’s the post I promised to do after the craft fair I did (see my previous post here).  Thanks to all who were able to make it to the St. Teresa Fair and for stopping in to see me at the Craft Fair portion in the Parrish Center in Titusville, FL last month. This small venue was a lot of fun and I met a lot of great people there that I’m sure I will be seeing again. I even had the chance to meet a few fellow Etsy shop owners there as well and it was fun putting faces with some of the online shops. 

Since then on Fridays I have been showing up at the Farmer’s Market in town and keeping busy in between making more bags.  I have been adding new bags to my Etsy shop at http://stufffrombarb.etsy.com and will continue to add more a little at a time.  The latest is made from a recycled t-shirt that my nephew, Jason, had made with a drawing he did of a Dungeons and Dragons type of character.  We always get comments from people when we wear the shirts he made and this one had been put away because of a stain we got on it.  When I started making more and more handbags, purses, totes and anything else I can think of, I started digging through all the clothes I had put away because I just couldn’t bring myself to throw them away, I came across this shirt and knew just what to do with it.  You can see it in the picture above or you can click here to see the listing of the re-purposed and recycled t-shirt.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. 

I’m not sure I will be able to live off the profits I am making with these bags anytime soon but I am certainly having fun sewing them and selling some here and there too.  I know I’ve gotten a little off track for this site but I promise I’ll talk more about sewing dresses in my future postings.  I am still trying to learn a few more internet tricks and am working on a link for this site to sign up for monthly sewing projects.  They will mostly be sewing projects but I have a few things I make that you don’t need a sewing machine for.  Hopefully, I will have that link up and working soon.  In the meantime, I hope you are finding what you need on my site from my previous postings and will check back soon.  Thanks for reading and for checking out my Etsy shop too.

I've been sewing since I was a child (a long, long time ago) and recently my daughter showed an interest in making something special. Bringing out the sewing machine always makes me wonder why I ever put it away. I really enjoy sewing and creating things to wear and look forward to sharing all the tips and tricks I use to help make things fit and flatter me when I sew dresses and anything else.
