His: The Guy Who Sews is in Business!

For Christmas this past year, Amanda got me a sewing machine. I have been learning a lot and have had fun trying out some new techniques.

Amanda asked me in the spring if I could make her a project bag for her knitting. She showed me a tutorial and I made one. She loved it! She took it to her knitting group and one of her friends loved it and ordered one. Since then I have sold eight to Amanda’s friends at knitting group.

A similar thing happened not long after. Amanda’s sister, Jenn, asked me whether I could make pacifier clips. I tried and it turned out pretty good (if I do say so myself). Jenn liked it and I made a few more.

After a few project bags and pacifier clips were made, people started suggesting that I start an Etsy (an online, crafters marketplace) store. I went back and forth, but decided to open a store and see how the items would be received. 
I am not good with graphic design so I enlisted the help of one of my friends who does it for a living and he made me the cool logo for my store.

I have been so happy with the feedback I have gotten. People really seem to like what I am creating. That's such a good feeling.

My most recent project bag - click here to see the listing on Etsy.
I have recently set up a Facebook page and a Pinterest account for the business to help people see my newest creations. 

I would love to have you stop by and see the items I currently have for sale. I can also do custom orders, so just let me know what you need and I will do my best to make it happen.
