Today after work I listed the four small bags, I had taken pictures of, on my Etsy shop. These are Our Lady of Guadalupe printed fabric bags. They are small flat bags measuring 9 3/4" x 8 1/2" with a 7 1/2" long straps. These bags with the short handles didn't sell at the craft show, so I decided to try selling them on etsy. People loved them very much, but as soon as I mentioned the ones with the long strap they suddenly turn their attention to the long strap ones.

The fabric these prints came from had frammed blocks of four different prints. I think this fabric was meant for quilting because of the blocks. I decided to make all bags with it. I originally ordered an all over printed fabric but the company I was ordering from was out of stock and I didn't have time to wait since I had my first craft show coming up.

Oh, btw, I did bring my camera inside after all. Thank goodness.

Soon I should maybe do a how to make something blog. That would be good.

My Sunday...

My Sunday today went pretty well. Was on and off the computer throughout day. Found another site to sell things on called bigcartel.com and I thought I'd check it out. I opened a shop named lisanapiersews.bigcartel.com and listed three aprons. I'll see how that goes. I did the free plan where you can list five items for free. I'll just patiently wait and see if anything sells.

I also took some pictures of aprons and small bags with my phone camera and my regular camera (and I'm wondering where I placed that camera, hope I didn't leave it outside). I actually like how the phone camera pics turned out.

And...I listed on my Etsy shop lisanapiersews.etsy.com four half aprons and one tote bag. After listing the fourth apron I noticed I could post my latest listing to facebook. This was my excitement of the day, believe it or not! It was exciting to me as well as my sister. So then I listed one more item, a tote bag, and showed it off on facebook.


Tomorrow after work I'll try listing the bags I took pictures of.

Until tomorrow....bye bye!

Picture of Elvis Coin Purse

Hello Out There!

Hello out there! I'm just fine and dandy. I just listed a new item on lisanapiersews.etsy.com of an Elvis coin purse. This is my fifth added item. I know, what's taking me so long. Well pretty much all week it has been raining and today it's been on the cloudy side. Too bad I didn't get to take pictures earlier but I was preoccupied. Let's hope tomorrow will be a good weather day.

Today I will actually sew. Well tonight since its already evening.

SOOOOO.....or should I say sewwwwwww....time to get to the sewing machine.

Tootles,
Love Lisa

Hello, I'm Lisa

Hello, I'm Lisa and this is my first blog right here if you don't count MySpace. I will be blogging about my sewing, crafting, art, or whatever catches my eye for the day, but maybe not everyday.

Saturday, May 1, 2010 I was in my very first craft show ever!!! It was very exciting to me. The show was the Craft Spring Market by Flint Handmade and I was located in the Loft in Downtown Flint. I did okay, being that this was my very first craft show. I noticed that people liked the Elvis and Our Lady of Guadalupe aprons and bags. Which brings me to thinking about having a table space at my church fiesta. Should I do it or not. I did order some more fabric a few days ago but received a phone call about it being out of stock but they will get some more in. So I will have to patiently wait.

Hmmm...what else can I say...
Oh yes! This past Sunday I set up an Etsy shop finally. On Monday I posted my first four items which were four crochet flower pins. Took the pics with my handy dandy phone camera since my "real" camera had dead batteries. The pics turned out alright. Haven't had a chance to take anymore pictures this week due to the rainy days we have been having. I want to take the pics outside using the natural sunlight.

Well I guess that's about all for today. I need to think about getting some sewing done.

Happy sewing or whatever it is you have planned.

Almost forgot>>> my etsy shop is: lisanapiersews.etsy.com
