My newest listing!

I wanted to sew up something cute, small and functional so I decided to make a cute little credit card case. This case is not only for credit cards. You can also use it for business cards, change, lipstick or just a little "pocket" to hold all of those lose little items in your purse like a small pill box, nail clippers, emery board and small mirror!

Revving my Engines!

I am getting very close to being ready to post my products online! In fact, I have decided that for the time being, I am going to sell through an Etsy shop. I have saved my domain through Yahoo Small Business but feel that maybe the exposure through Etsy would be a good way to start. Therefore, my new online shop will be www.cutsietootsiedesigns.etsy.com. I am slowly posting things but currently only have a few things up. It will be a couple weeks before I am ready to post any purses or totes but I thought I would give you a sneak peak of the kind of bags that are going up for sale. This latest one is an adorable smaller tote that can be used as a purse, totebag, or mini-diaper bag when you don't have alot to carry with on short trips. It is lined inside on all sides with pockets and has an outside pocket. It is secured in the middle with a large button.

The flu has set me back this week but hopefully my engines will be going full steam ahead soon!

A cute little tote!

I decided to take the diaper bag/tote and scale the pattern down to make a smaller tote. It can be used as a purse, a small tote or a mini-diaper bag. I made it a multi-colored stripe with a button closure. The inside has 6 pockets around the perimeter of the bag. I plan on making these in some fun summer colors as well as some baby prints.
Since my website isn't ready to launch yet, I thought I would continue giving you sneak peeks at my product line!

Sewing, sewing and more sewing!

Today I added a new product to my list - a diaper bag. Actually, it can be used as a tote bag OR a diaper bag but I made this one in denim with a cute pink and white polkadot lining so it would be perfect for a baby girl. The inside is lined with pockets all around. Next on my list is a smaller version of this bag - I will call it my "Quick Trip" diaper bag and can be used when you don't need to take everything with. It will be roomy enough for a bottle, a diaper, and a small pack of wipes. It will also have an outside pocket for Mom's wallet and keys. When your baby becomes a toddler, he/she can then use is as a Toddler Take-along. It will be the perfect size for a coloring book, crayons, a book a little truck or a small stuffed animal. Just a few things that your toddler can carry on his/her own to take in the car or to a restaurant!

Now can anyone suggest a way to add more sewing hours to my day? My brain is thinking faster than my hands can sew!

"Cutsie Tootsie"

Yes, you heard me right - "Cutsie Tootsie" is going to be the name of my new online sewing business. At first I was going to set up a shop on Etsy but knew that I would eventually want my own website. Soooo.. since I'm jumping in with both feet (as well as Jen and Diana's feet) I decided to get a domain name and just do it. Of course I need Ryan to help me with the details as he is my computer geek and knows how to do everything! I've convinced him to come down this week to get me going. Until then, I may play around and figure it out. I really want to get this up and going. But I still have lots of sewing to do but I'm getting there!

I will make the big announcement as soon as I hit the publish button! You all will be the first to know!
