Congratulations, Chelsa and Danielle! Contact me with your pick of any bib or burp cloth from my shop!
And thanks SO much to y'all! I now have a fabulous list of Etsy shops all in one place (and I'm glad to share!) :)
I'm considering highlighting a few of my favorites as I go through them - would that be fun?
So, I mentioned a few posts back that - as I am getting the hang of being the Mama of two - I've been finding time to play in my sewing room lately and boy, has it been lovely! I just recently got a new, big, beautiful pile of fabrics and have been in hog heaven doing all kinds of glorious things with them!
(Should I feel guilty that I hardly ever make anything for Oliver? I mean, I made his duvet and a few other things for his room, but a mama can only make so many pajama pants only to watch them be covered in yogurt and syrup every morning! Girly things are just more fun to make!)
I've been making dresses and tops for Hazel and, buying up all of Target's $2 knee socks and converting them into leggings with great girly passion and fervor.
I've also been getting a lot of requests to resurrect the Ragamuffin Skirts (just recently highlighted on this blog) and am finding it harder and harder to say "no". I've even done some playing with the original design and am working on a new summer skirt idea that I may share if I can ever get 'er done.
I've also been dyeing things! More of Oliver's dirty ol' jammies and shirts that just need a little more pink and a little less blue - and even a few cloth diapers! (Don't worry - only covers!)
But the main thing that I've been working on is keeping my Etsy shop stocked. I started making bibs and burp cloths in preparation for having a new baby in the house, and many of y'all asked if I'd be willing to make them available for sale. Per your suggestions (thanks, guys!), I've been selling them on Etsy since late last year and can hardly keep them stocked half the time!
They good news is, they're fun to make (especially when I have fresh, gorgeous fabrics to work with!), and I'm glad to do my little part to promote lovely aesthetics in the burping and spitting category.
Anyway, I was thinking yesterday that I haven't done a giveaway on my blog in awhile, so I decided to give away a couple of things from the shop!
Why don't you leave a comment (1 per person, please!) telling me your favorite Etsy shop/seller and what they sell. (This way it's a win/win - you get to enter the giveaway, I get to have a list of fabulous shops all in one place!) I'll close comments and chose two winners sometime Friday and let each winner pick something from my shop!
Sounds fun, right?
Oh, and if you don't have a favorite Etsy shop... um... I don't know... just do a little searching and I'm sure you'll find something you like!
