I know I've been very lax about updating this sewing journal, personal issues have really eaten into my sewing time. I have been sewing pads, just not as many as I would like. For those of you looking for more goodies, I'll be uploading some new products over the next week or so. I have a few new liners already sewn up and I have a bunch of other sizes just waiting to be finished.
The last few weeks my sewing time was taken up with these two baskets which I donated to a charity auction.
The baskets were filled with a package of the mineral salts that I stock in my CPS
store, a bandanna, a wetbag, mini-wipes, and a cooling neck tie.
The mini-wipes are something I've wanted to try for awhile, I think they came out pretty good. They weren't too small at 3.5" x 3.5", they seemed the perfect size for all of those times you don't need a full sized wipe. These are definitely something you will see soon in my stores.
The cooling neck tie is something I've been supplying to the local feed store to sell. You immerse the tie in water for 15-20 minutes to hydrate the crystals inside. Once hydrated the tie stays damp and cool for 1-2 days. Since we live in the high desert these have been very popular for those people who spend lots of time outside. I've also found that they help sooth headaches and migraines. The evaporative property of the tie can keep you cool all day long. This is another new item you will see soon in both of my stores!
I would love to add the baskets to my stores, they are great for storing pads in, but I'm concerned about shipping. They aren't huge but they are a bit bulky. The great thing is that you can make them in any fabric colors so they can suit anyone's taste. Is there anyone out there who would be interested in one? If so I'll take one to the post office to see how much it would cost to send...
