Kindermat covers

Good Morning everyone.  School is fast approaching and I as I make my kindermat covers, I am reminded of my kids when they were younger and starting a new school year.  But it also reminds me of my younger years (now we are talking a long time ago :-)).  At the beginning of the school year, everything was fresh and new.  New tablets, new clothes, new determination to make good grades - that didn't last with me!!  As we approach the beginning of this school year, I wish everyone a great and very safe school year.  Be proud of yourself and be the best you can be at everything you choose to do!!

I had a great day today.  Spent the night with my oldest daughter.  Had the chance to visit with all the kids and grandkids.  And finishing it all off with spending time with my husband.  Now I need to do a bit of sewing.  Have several orders to complete this week, which I am very excited about.  Hope to get more this week.  Plus this week I will have the opportunity to "shop sit" the little boutique where some of Gramme's items are sold.  Very excited.  Hope everyone has a great week.

Sew long!!

Fabric scraps

A few months ago, I went through all my fabric scraps, bundled them according to color or design pattern, and sold a few on Etsy.  Unfortunetly I didn't sell enough to make a difference, cause I still have a pile of bundles at the bottom of my closet in my sewing room.  So today, I got an  idea.  I figured out that I could 11 1/2lb bundles in a medium size priority rate box.  Took pics of the bundles and now have a terrific offer on Etsy.  Over 5 lbs of fabric scraps for $25.00 which includes the shipping costs.  I would be so excited to destash my scraps.  Since I bundled all these scraps a few months ago, another bin has been growing with more scraps.  They are multiplying!!!

Take a look!!

A big change for me will occur at the end of this week.  My last day with the company I work for will be Friday, July2.  I hope to have more time to devote to my family as well as my favorite thing to do, besides spending time with my family, creating, promoting and selling the items I make. 

On sale, at Gramme's House (Etsy) is my pocket purse organizer.  Regularly $22.99, through July 2nd, they are on sale for $15.00 plus shipping.  The link is

Happy sewing,

Pocket Purse Organizer - Medium

Thanks to a very nice Etsy customer, buttonbistro7, I am able to offer another new item to my shop. I have been making the large pocket purse organizers for about a year, but it was not until buttonbistro7 asked about resizing it smaller, did I try this pattern. It came out so cute. I will be mailing it out to her tomorrow. I hope she likes it. She said she will promote it for me on her blog...maybe I can sell a few.
