Some sewing actually went on this week!

Some time ago I had cut out a bunch of fabric with the intention of sewing all of it up into some trick or treat bags for my Etsy shop. Let's just say that some time ago was over a month ago to be honest.

I managed to get a lot of bags sewn together today but the hard part is yet to come. Those of you that sell on Etsy know exactly what I mean. The pictures. Yes, photographing items is the hardest part of selling. You wouldn't think so but I sure do believe it is. I'm sure hundreds would agree with me on that little point.

Last year when I opened my shop, my very first sale was from a trick or treat bag. As a matter of fact, it was exactly like the orange spider bag in the middle top part of the above picture. This year, as I have developed into a more practical person, I have made it a point to use up a lot of my scraps. Those scraps can be useful too after all! That's where those small treat bags came into play in the bottom part of the above picture. I will probably set sets of those if the first set sells fairly quickly.

What is all of this you say? Well, I just finished up 7 more items to donate to the Team SC shop. Team SC is going to offer sample boxes this holiday shopping season. The sample boxes will be listed some time in the next month or so. If you would like to check out the goodies that Team SC's shop has for sale now, just click on over.


  1. It's hard to even consider how close October is! yikes!

  2. You are so right. The picture taking can be painful! Love your bags - great job for finding a way to use the scraps!
