This past year was a lot to handle; My job kept me busy and when I came home for the evening all I wanted to do was rest. I was also pregnant and had a baby girl in December! So my life is quite different right now. I'm on maternity leave and in between feedings and naps, I've had a lot of time to reflect on my life. I've got too many hobbies, too much stuff, and it's time to clean up my craft room (for real this time... I can't count the number of times I've said I'm getting rid of things, only to stash them in a bookshelf to 'deal with later'). I'd love to post some 'before' pictures of my craft room, which is now a shared space with my husband and all his photograph gear/bookshelves/computer stuff, but I'm actually really embarrased at how cluttered it is!
As part of my de-cluttering self-help I decided it was time to sew my fabric stash up! So I've been a little more active in the arts and crafts sales to try and get my fabric to fit into my space. I'll be at an upcoming event called The Fibre Shindig on April 16th. I was a vendor at their previous event in the fall and received a ton of positive feedback about my bags, so I decided to give it another go. My goal is to have a few more box bags and wedge bags than I had in the fall, and hopefully my fabric will be able to fit into the 3 bins in my closet (it's currently hovering around 5 bins of fabric at the moment).
I'll be selling baskets, box bags and some zippered bags to hold all your lovely items! They're great for knitting/crochet projects, but I've also stored wires & chargers when we're traveling, smaller items like underwear and socks, and lately I've been thinking about all the baby stuff I can cram into one of these for a smaller, travel-sized diaper bag! Is there something you'd love to see me make? Comment below, or send me a message via Instagram!
