Here are the results from my sewing day yesterday. I actually did get all 4 wallets finished. I have started doing 2 or 3 of the same patterns inside to help speed up the process. I take FOREVER choosing fabrics for a wallet, I thought it would be smarter to invest that time in more than just one. I am also staging them differently, instead of cutting out 2 or 3, then sewing them up, I am cutting out 11 or 12, then sewing in batches. It is definitely making me more efficient. :)
I'm also trying to build a variety of inventory for boutiques. So I took a break from wallets and made these two mini totes. This is one of the patterns I'm working on for my shop. It's a super fun, simple pattern- but Oh so cute! These just need flowers, but in my new- batch thing together to be more efficient- system, that's going to wait for another day.
It definitely helped putting into words my goal for the day. Especially when I felt the draw of Pride and Prejudice, or a nap pulling me in. :)
And thanks for your input on the card holder. I have decided that I'll probably make two versions, one for more moderate card holders and another for those who are hardcore. In fact, that's the agenda for today. I love playing with new ideas.
And, it's Friday! Could today get any better? Oh, wait- YES it can!! I just found out my Bestest blogging friend is coming out to join me for this amazing retreat. September can't get here soon enough! Maybe you'll join us too?
Happy weekend everyone!
