I'm a friend of Rosie's and stopped by to share something that I do which fits in with the theme of this community. I love baking but I rarely take pictures of my "creations" so what I'm posting about instead is sewing-related :D
Lately, I've started hand sewing little cozies for iPods and iPhones and things like that, and last month I opened up my own Etsy shop
to put them up on to see if anyone was interested in buying them. In less than a month (my first month!), I've had 4 sales which I'm really chuffed about and it's so relaxing and fun making the cozies. I've given so many as gifts to friends and family already so that's also a good part of making them, too :D
Here are some pictures:
I called my shop Cover Up! Cozies and have about 14 cozies for sale at the moment, which you can see here
if you're interested. It's just a really fun, productive way to pass the time. I'm aiming to make three cozies each week!
Not meaning this post to be an advertisement, just wanted to share... and perhaps see if any of the few members we have so far enjoys doing anything similar? Do you make any handmade/homemade things for your friends & family and if so what? :) Post pictures!
