Sweet Mabel – The Etsy Shop Is Open

Most of you already know from Facebook (most of this post will probably be a repeat) that my new Etsy Shop – Sweet Mabel – is open.  I’m still trying to find my niche and I’ll admit it’s been pretty fun!  I desperately needed a creative outlet since I’m not used to being a SAHM (stay at home mom, but you all know that already right? Lol!).  Now, I’m not looking to make a bunch of money on this, I’ve actually priced my items to cover the cost of the materials and the time to make.  It’s more just about letting me do something that I love and sharing it with others!  I’m looking forward to seeing pictures of people with my quilts/creations after they’ve bought them.  Especially the baby/crib quilts! 
A bunch of my friends keep telling me that they have no idea where I find the time to do all the sewing that I’ve been doing…this picture says it all:
Poor baby Mabel with the crazy hair…but so darn cute clutching her bear blankie!
When she’s asleep!  Haha…that’s the key.  Or when Hubby is home and is watching her.  I’ve also made use out of my inability to fall asleep before 2am!
I’m currently working on sewing a king size quilt for our bed…and boy is it taking forever!  But, it’ll be worth it in the end!  I’ll be sure to post pics when it’s done if you’re curious to see the end product.  Also, I’m working on adding different items to the shop.  This is the latest item that I made for Mabel as a ‘test’ product:
Mabel’s New Stroller Blanket!
I figured out how to make a Minky stroller blanket!  It’s a light blanket that I think I could price at around $36?  They’re fun to make since Minky comes is so many colors, is super soft and I can choose some really neat fabric for the back/boarder.  What do you think?  Do you think people would be interested in these?
Anyway, I would love some feedback if you have any!  😉  Leave me a comment on here or the Facebook page!

*The blog is falling back a little and that’s probably due to me being a slacker with posts.  Would you spare a second to vote?  All you have to do is click…that counts as a vote.  Wow, I’m really begging…lol!*
