..it's been a very long time since my last journal entry and I have some pretty big news... I'M PREGNANT! 6 months pregnant to be exact, and with that comes it's ups and downs. The downs are that I feel sick and tired most days, but the ups is that it gives me time to sew since I can't work full time at my regular job as I physically cannot stand for eight hours a day! So I'm down to part times, still five days, but only five hours a day. Baby is a little girl to be named Amethyst-Jayne and due on the 25th of May.
About sewing, I'm sure if you're reading this you have seen my latest submissions of my bridal party. Well, this is the direction I want to take my business, I want to make people in their wedding attire as it combines everything I love about sewing. It's personal, every project will be different, and doesn't involve fan art! Don't get me wrong, I don't mind fan art from time to time, and business is business, but I don't want to be one of those places that only makes fan art.
I'm going to start my making a lot of them for free for friends and family to practice different styles and improve my skills with various materials. So for now I'm only going to offer the "chibi style" dolls, which I will always have available as the "cheaper option" because the attire is made of felt.
I do, however, have bulk fabric of minky, faux fur and fleece that I need to get rid of, so I will be making these into stuff to get rid of it all, I cannot justify buying heaps of satins and organza when I have five massive boxes of fabric sitting there taking up space. Any ideas will be welcome, and please, only suggest something that you would buy! I keep getting suggestions of what people think "might sell well" but what I really want is personal opinions.
thank you for taking the time to read this. it means a lot!
