I have a new item which I just posted on Etsy. These are 4.5 by 5 inch goodie or gift bags. I wanted something less expensive and for the next holiday on the list for gift giving: Valentine's day. I have several patterns and colors which could be available. Maybe my husband will buy one for me and put something in it? I can hope for something sparkly for it, but most likely it will be candy. My oldest son's books were $400 for the upcoming semester which I paid off today. I think that is why the bag will be borrowed and filled with candy!
This is yet a slightly different direction for me as I have never made machine embroidered lace before. When it works it works well. I did have a few issues getting everything to work out well though. Not sure if its the machine, the lace, or bad karma for the day when it fails on me. We did pretty well with the Christmas stockings so I'm hoping that another small item will get traffic flowing to the shop again. Since mid-December nothing has been happening on the Etsy-side of things. Local custom orders, however, are keeping me busy.
