A friend of mine opened a Tea Shop in Lexington a few weeks ago. I can't wait to drive over there and have some tea and check out the new business. I'm just so happy for her.
And...she wants to sell things like cloth napkins, aprons, tea cozies, place mats...you know...tea-time things made out of fabric.
And here I am, with a brand spankin' new sewing machine. So, guess who got a commission to do some sewing? Moi!
Sounds like I need to organize my time...seriously. I've already designed a unique fully reversible one-size-fits-all-teapots tea cozy and made my first three specimens. Trust me...I collect tea pots and I tried this out on a variety of pots and it works on all of them, thanks to the unique flower petal design. And yesterday I bought more coordinating fabric for reversible place-mats, cloth napkins and yet more fabrics for another reversible set.
So that etsy shop that I've been threatening to open but never actually getting done...I think it might be happening soon. Whatever doesn't sell at Cuppa will get sold on etsy.
Now, I'd better go get organized and make it happen. And pre-wash that fabric.
