New Items for my Etsy Shop

I feel like I've finally found my 'thing'. That sounds weird so I will clarify. I really wanted to make things to sell in my etsy shop, but I'd start and then get bored with the process. This week I came up with a design for pouches that you can use to tote around just about anything. And it just hit me! These are fun to make, and they are quilty and they are super bright, and useful. And I may finally be over my fear of zippers! Cue the snazzy enlightened music and the stars aligning. :)

So here they are in my Byneedleandthread Etsy Shop

The Medium GG Pouch $26

The Small GG Pouch $20

And since you're reading my blog, I'll let you in on a little secret. Ok two little secrets. One, I made most of these while watching Gilmore Girls, so I named them GG Pouch after that. Silly I know, but then I realized that would also work as Grab & Go, which is perfect for the concept of the bag.

Two sizes together

Second secret, once I get more made, I will be giving one away. So stay tuned for that.

You may wonder why there is a heap of them in the photo, but I don't have any on hand, well they are now available for purchase at the Kniterary in Whitby, they are having a studio tour this weekend, and my bags are hanging out with other wonderful knitted pieces, sculptures, beaded jwewlery. Lots of nice things to see!

And if you love the look of the pouches and think they would work well for your needs, I'd love if you'd order one up from my etsy shop. :)

Thanks friends!
