But there are a few times when sewing seems too expensive. One of those times is when I agree to sew something for someone else in exchange for money.
For several years I have contemplated selling items that I sew. I have thought about it and thought about it and studied it and thought some more. But in the end, I just really do not enjoy it. It always costs more than I anticipate, takes more time than I planned and I always feel that it is not perfect enough. Oh, and always feel some sort of guilt at what I charge, no matter how accurate it is in terms of costs and time.
I sew to RELIEVE stress, not to create more.

Boy, I am really on a roll the last few weeks!
I think that in order to sell items and enjoy it, I would have to be so popular that I could make whatever suited my fancy for the day and I had enough people waiting for one of my items that they sold immediately, no matter what it was.
(Like THAT'S ever gonna happen!)
(I am sort of idolizing Ashley of Lil Blue Boo right now. How much fun do you think she has? Although I am betting there is some stress involved, too!)
How about you? Have any of you had a good experience selling sewn items? Is there something I am missing?
