Estate Sale and VACATION!

Last weekend I went to an Estate Sale in search of a Baby Lock Serger. It was there on Friday but it was out of my price range. I went back on Sunday when everything was half off with the hopes that it would be there but it had sold. Oh well. It wasn't meant to be.

But I did get this HUGE box of fabric for only $6!!! I'm sure this much fabric would cost well over $200 new. I've already made a dress for myself that turned out too big:( but have lots of plans for when I return from our Vacations. I got a box of thread for $3 and a 6qt slow cooker for $3!! I love it and you can fit a whole chicken in there!
My mother, Ethan and I will be leaving tomorrow for our cross country trip to Georgia to visit my sister! We will be staying with her for a little over a week and driving back to Oklahoma for our Family Reunion. Eli will pick us up in Oklahoma, drive us back to Texas and we will be flying out to visit his side of the family in Virginia and South Carolina! We won't be back in town until the end of June. I will try to post from the road but won't be doing any sewing until I get back to Oklahoma where I have a few projects planned.
I've put my Etsy store on Vacation mode until I return and can fill it up!

Have a great month!

More on Ebay

I thought the last Ebay was such a success I'd try it again! There are several items of clothing I have that didn't sell at our last garage sale so I thought I'd try putting them up on Ebay. I've also gone with the "Buy it Now" feature for one of the items.

Here's a look at all I'm selling. The size 4 pants I found at a garage sale the other day!

The ones that don't sell I will repost at a lower price. I've also got a bunch of winter stuff but will wait till winter is closer before selling.

I just added a Sweet Blue Flower dress to Etsy. I love these prints together.
Two skirts made for little Mercy Rose, sister-in-law. We can't wait to see them this summer!

First Sale on Etsy

I had my first sale on Etsy!! A pair of leg warmers in the summer:) It was great that the item was removed from my store and my button on the side of this blog. I didn't have to do anything but pack it up and ship- tomorrow. Can't wait to get more stuff sewn to put in the store!

Gifts for Friends

This weekend Ethan, my Mom and I went to a baby shower. My good friend from high school is having her first, a boy!! This is what I made for the new little guy:
All above are upcycled. The bunny from a t-shirt and the kimono and shoes from sheets.

This sweet little dress was just shipped out to a friend across the sea.

Ebay Success!

My Ebay dress sold!!! I was really excited when I got the email. It only sold for the starting price but I had 4 people watching it. Now I just have to wait and see if I get paid. I've heard that sometimes you don't.

I'll be keeping my eye out for other cute items to put up next.

I've also had quite a few views on my Etsy store items. Now, I'm sure that's been most of my family but it makes me feel good anyway:)
