Yo-Yo's and Candy

I finally decided. I'm going to open an Etsy Shop! I have been wavering for weeks now, but at the urging of my very good friend Amanda, from The Modern Brady Bunch Family Blog, and various members of my family, I'm ready to do it. I'm going to take the next week or so to sew up some stock, and then I should be ready to go! I've made a few things already, and I have lots more in the works. I'm not going to stick to any particular patterns, just make whatever strikes my fancy. I do know that the majority of my items will be for infants and children, sizes 6mos, to size 6x. Here are a few of the things I've made so far.

I plan to make little skirts to match the tops.
And of course, this will be in my shop too.

I think I'm going to call my shop Yo-Yo's and Candy, but we'll see. I want something cute, that reflects my product. I plan to make from scratch, and refashion some items. Overall I'm just hoping to have fun. I just hope I can sell something!    Anne

    One thing I have a hard time finding on Etsy is cute dresses and outfits in size 8 to 10 for girls. Most home seamstresses seem to create for babies and toddlers. So...if you make bigger sizes for the lunchbox crowd, you may have a new client. ;) (Or if you know someone who does, please let me know! I am especially looking for pillowcase dresses in funky patterns and colors for size 8 girls)

  11. Stopping by from FMBT. I'm a new follower. Please drop by my blog and follow back.
