For sale in my Etsy Shop: Bert, Ernie, and Elmo cloth training pants!
First of all, I have to apologize because I promised templates/patterns for the Sesame Street monster faces and I tried but couldn't get them to show up right. I since lost one of them and will have to re-draw it (which isn't a big deal since I never use a pattern anyway). But I do apologize if you were banking on those. I'm thinking of just selling fleece face applique sets on Etsy anyway. What do you think? All the fleece pieces of Elmo's face for $3 shipped? Bert's and Ernie's for $4?
This is all beside the point. Sufficed to say, I'm sorry about that.
So, I've been neglecting my blog and my Etsy shop for awhile because I was putting my family first and settling my priorities. For someone who only works part time, I'm SUCH a busy girl! I'm always knitting something for someone, working with my husband in the church, doing piles of laundry or making dinners for the week, writing my book (it's my secret passion), sewing, writing for Diaper Junction's Cloth Diaper Blog...and on top of all of that I want to be the best Mommy possible. So, my blog and my Etsy have been on hold.
Well, our church just realized that they can't pay my husband full time anymore and reducing him to part time is almost worse than firing him because we can't support ourselves on that income. I know, it seems awful, but it's not. God's given us amazing peace and we're really okay with it! Now, Dave's looking for another job and I've decided that I should step it up with Etsy again to help supplement his income. Since the Sesame Street trainers
When I posted my tutorial on how to make these trainers, a couple of people asked if I'd be selling them. I didn't have plans to up til that point, but they're such a hit with my daughter and really pretty simple to make so I've decided to do so. I didn't go out and buy fabric for all the monsters--sorry. I only had the right fleece for Bert, Ernie, and Elmo. And I have an Oscar in the works, too.
