week 105

I added a little more to the pullover’s sleeves and finished this top.

I’m tempted to make a small cowl to the neck but I like it the way it is.

I have tried it on and it’s plenty loose and oversized.

pillowcase

I posted this fabric on Instagram and reposted it on Twitter which reposted onto Facebook.

My cousin saw it and requested a pillow made with it.

The pillowcase measures 12.5 by 18.5 inches.

Have to gather up enough fabric scraps to make the pillow form to insert into the case, then I can send it to her.

Green bag

This former baby blanket has been sitting in the pile of fabric for To-Dos.

I’ve been wanting a little bag to hold all my tools in one place but not sure this will be it.

I’ve got a huge pile of projects to do.

Backpack

This is a huge project, in itself.

My friend Mike came by and dropped it off in July. I originally agreed to fix the holes and the main zipper but decided to just make him a new one.

I’m somewhat in over my head because I didn’t keep the pieces in their right piles and sewing it by memory. I should have taken pictures as I took it apart.

The back is pretty much done.

Now for the rest.

He’ll have it by next week. It won’t be perfect but that’s what happens. I’m not a factory.

So….

I’ve finally decided to open an online store, as opposed to putting things off again, because I need to get rid of things that are just taking up space.

Thing is I can’t decide between Supadupa and Big Cartel. I’m leaning towards Big Cartel because I want to start smaller.

I’ll link to it here and on my Instagram when it’s all settled. It will be under my name.

    I use Indiemade (bekswhoknits.indiemade.com) and I’ve found it really good and cheap compared to some.

    I also have an etsy shop (which is fine, but I wanted my own). I tried shopify but $30 a month was too expensive for me. Indiemade is $10 which is one sale so kinda doable for me.

    The other free option that I’ve liked is https://gospaces.com/
    It doesn’t have as many features but it’s free until you make $50 a month.
    but you do get a pretty crap url

    there are options 🙂
