etsy excitement

i have been a sewing fool lately. last night my parents went out to eat, invited me to go with them, and i declined so that i could begin making items for sale in the shop. tonight, with much excitement, i posted my first two listings in my new etsy shop. here's what i made:

a cute appliqued tote bag


a cute "market tote" with a pocket in the lining that folds up nicely into a pouch.

i love craftery so much. i wish i could just quit my dayjob and sew all day long. i have tons of cute fabric just begging to be made into something useful!

tomorrow i plan on sewing some more, then getting my bike from eric (gas is ridiculously priced! i'm biking to work), and then going to church. then it's back to the daily grind...

i love this appliqued tote! i also checked out your etsy shop. that joel dewberry print is one of my favorites. i almost bought that fabric (different colors) for my baby quilt, but went with amy butler cloth instead. & i really think the joel dewberry go-green market bag should be priced higher than $16 if it folds up into its own zippered pouch! that's awesome! i love your art/crafts, rachael...

by the way, that comment was from michelle, not josh. but wouldn't it be hilarious if josh had written it?

thanks michelle, that means a lot coming from you... i feel like we have a lot of the same tastes in craft-type things. i also bought much amy butler fabric recently!

i grinned about the josh comment :)
