New Items

So I took a break from my Etsy shop to regroup and come up with some new things and even redo some of my older things. I ended up taking six months off and now I'm ready to focus on this again. My biggest motivation is the fact that today was my first day being unemployed. That's right, I decided to quit my job to focus on other things that I really want to do with my life. My Etsy shop is one of them.

One of my newest items is a different approach to my cup cozies. While I love crocheting them, I wanted to do something else as well. So I started searching various things on Etsy and Pinterest (I really need to stay off these sites) for inspiration and I decided upon felt. Felt doesn't need a finished edge because it won't fray like fabric will. I still recommend hand washing them just because that's what I do, but I don't see why you couldn't. I would just be careful because they could shrink or the color can bleed.

My mom has also been busy creating more of her felt pincushions that sell great at craft shows. She loves making these. Anything that will allow her to hand embroidery, she will do it. The possibilities that she comes up with are endless.

I hope you enjoy the new stuff, as well as the old stuff that is still unique. Enjoy.
