That’s right! Just as the title says ….it’s fast a coming. The real question is coming down to what to make . I like giving hand made gifts these days. In a world of gift cards, and soulless electronic gizmos, I find a hand made gift make more of an impression. Also I find that the people receiving a handmade gift seem to cherish it more. Now I know not everyone can do that, which is totally fine, but when it comes to what I do, it works for me.
But really there is a more pressing issue of….the Christmas decor sewing. You know, the place mats, the table runners, tree skirts, stockings; all of that stuff that makes a home festive. My personal Christmas decore is white and silver.
I recently I went to a local fabric store and bought a charm pack. I have had the thought lately of making for Christmas items and trying to sell them. Either through my web site here, or through etsy. I have reservations about using both, but I feel at least that I should at least get myself out there in the marketplace and see what might come. Maybe some custom orders? Maybe something else? I am going to make some samples and see what comes from it.
