Stitches and Love Store is Open!

Eeeek!! The store is finally open! I would love you to come and take a look

I've started things off with some cute little sets of hair elastics. 

Pretty Chevrons

Dusty Pinks

All packaged up and ready to go!

These elastics are made from fold over elastic (FOE) and glitter elastic. The FOE is super soft and much gentler on hair than standard hair elastics. I have used them for a few months now and love them! The glitter elastic is quite gentle too, just not quite as gentle as the FOE. I absolutely LOVE the glitter elastic. :-)

Please share my shop with anyone who may be interested. I will be adding lots more items as I make them and have lots of plans for more gorgeous hair accessories, toys, baby items, clothing and things for around the home. 

For all of you who love my fabric ball tutorial and pattern, I will be making some of these too!

A New Year with New Adventures

This year is full of new things for our family. A new house, new hometown, new job, new kindy, new friends, new church, new goals, and lots of other new things.

Something new for me is that I have finally decided to go ahead and start creating some things to sell! That right! I am opening up an Etsy store!! I have thought about this and wanted to try it for such a long time and have finally decided to do something about it. I also need something bringing in money so I can buy more fabric and craft supplies. ;-)

I am also learning how to source craft supplies and fabric in the country. It is proving quite tricky! We moved to Mt Isa in Queensland's north west and sewing supplies up here are scarce! I am getting very good at scouring the internet and the best source of fabric I have found here so far are op shops! I bought this gorgeous vintage flat sheet last week.

Isn't it sweet?? I have lots of ideas running around in my head for this!

I also got this beautiful fabric! 

I'm not sure what I'm going to use this one for but I absolutely love asian prints and fabrics and couldn't pass it up! I am hoping to create lots of asian inspired items for my shop. 

Anyway, as you might have noticed, I love to try lots of different crafts and sewing projects so to start off with, I will be selling quite a variety of items while I discover my style. I am also fitting in my crafting around my 2 little boys and helping out my husband by creating teaching resources so I will only be listing items as I can make them. This might mean that some weeks it will only be 1-2 new items...other weeks it might be 10! Hopefully there won't be any many weeks with none.

I don't have the store open yet as I am doing some final touches but will let you know as soon as it opens! Keep checking back for updates!!
