Rock On!


I've discovered that I love to sew! It started with a project where I wanted to make a quilt out of my old club t-shirts from college. That was successful, so I made a dress for Avery. That got out of control because it's hard to stop once you start. Of course now I want to do drapes and pillows and everything else for the house, but I've decided to wait until we buy a house and not waste it all on the rental one that we're in now! So, most recently I've discovered tiny rocking chairs for kids! I've always known about them, but I've started re-doing them and making little cushions! It's so much fun, and I can't wait to see what color combinations I can come up with for the paint and fabric! I really want to start selling them, so if that happens I can specialize them with names and themes! Now I just need to make a plan: where am I going to find lots of little rockers? Where will I sell them once I do find them? How long should I wait before branching into other little people furniture?! So much to think about, but for now they will make great baby gifts!

You're so talented! I'll have to have you make one for Abby Kate sometime. I've also heard that you can quilt together pieces of your baby blankets (once your done). I think that is a pretty cool idea (a blanket that can be passed down through the generations).

Lvoe the rockers! Way cool. I want to see the quilt now? What about just making the little Cushions to sell online? That would make shipping easier? Have you ever tried doll (Barbie) clothes? I can't imagine trying to sew something that tiny but they sure sell for a lot! Love ya, MamaKat
