Yay! I don't have pictures for you, but this weekend I took one step closer to my goal of having my own sewing business. It was only a little step, but I'm practicing my Grrl Genius-ness and recognizing my step. Now that I have you all confused, I'll tell you what I did.
I altered drapes. I know. Whoo-hoo and all. Like I said, it's a small step, but I got paid to do it and it only took me a couple of hours to do the calculations and do the deed. I hemmed them and added butterfly pleats. So I say a big thank you to my buddy Erik (who just left JC Penny's to start his own freelance installer business. Go Erik). One of the designers that he installs for needed a rush alteration. So he passed the alterations to me to do. I'm hoping he'll be able to pass more little jobs my way. Keep your fingers crossed!
My dream is to be a stay at home mom, and to earn my own money by doing alterations and custom sewing. I someday want to open an Etsy shop and sell handbags, softies and whatever else floats my fancy. It's not a big dream, lots of other people do it, but it's what I want.
