Sewing For One

Well, I am now just sewing for one, or maybe 2 or 3.  But I am no longer sewing to earn extra adoption money.  I have not actually sold a dress in a long time but I have removed the ordering buttons, today.  I made the decision to officially stop taking any orders this weekend.  I was sewing a dress for Chloe while Jim was playing with her in the other room.  It felt really good to be able to be sewing again but I felt that if I was sewing for anyone other than Chloe, especially someone I didn't know I would start to resent sewing and I don't want to do that.  Sewing is an escape for me and I love it but since I will be going back to work next week I want to be able to spend my extra time with Chloe!

I may still take a few special request orders and I hope to make a few special gifts but other than that the sewing shop is closed.  

I might just use this blog to showcase my creations.  Since I now have the perfect model!

Excuse the drool we are teething like crazy!

Just a preview of what I was working on this weekend.

Cute, cute, cute! I did a little sewing over the weekend and put it in my Etsy shop, but the price hardly makes it worth the time. It was fun though. I plan on just giving away doll dresses on my blog. Keep sewing fun and just sew for Chloe or gifts!! It is easy to get burned out with it!
