I Did It!

I opened my Etsy store.

Much respect to Etsy shop owners around the world. Making this happen took a lot of work.

Pretty little crocheted slippers
w/fabric flower and binding

Two weeks of non-stop crocheting and sewing.

Pretty in pink apron

My apartment has been a mess. Fabric, yarn, and straight pins all over the floor.

Cottage country style

I had to do a lot of improvising because the patterns were so hard to read and at certain points w-r-o-n-g.

Ruffles anyone?

Of course, it all took longer than I expected.

Double-sided for cooking or crafting

I haven't even made a dent in my list of items I want to make for the store. I'll just wait and see how I do before starting any new projects.

No housewives to distract me. My background noise consisted of HBO's OZ, seasons 3 & 4.

Dang this show is GOOD.

Thanks for the support. ♥
