Should have ironed this first UGH Top opens to put little suprises in for the kido's
I have been busting bootie getting a handle on the Easter table runners, light mobiles and chair bags, sent a set home with Tyler today so he could decorate the house for Easter. It took me forever to get this project going and finished (almost) I wanted the chair bags to open so the kids can get a little surprise in their bags now and then over the month, (sometimes nothing more than a little love note) had a heck of a time figuring out how to have them sturdy enough for little hands but still cute. I ended up spending more than I planned on by adding buttons (27 total) but without them the table runners seemed to be missing something. Let me tell you my fingers are cramped up big time!! I have sewn on 162 buttons total over the past 3 days. I decided today that the chair bags needed buttons as well, Karsyn and I headed to the fabric store to see what we could find. I ended up going with fabric covered buttons because of the price. The large button I wanted to use cost $3.69 each, needed 3 for each chair bag had to pass on that idea and make my own. While at the store 2 ladies offered me $50.00 for the table runners....hummm I don't normally sell what I make but it was tempting, I have put way more money into these little suckers than I should have. Daughter #1 is always on me to sell over at the Etsy site but I am still hesitant to try it out. With the schedule I have right now keeping the little girls I don't know how I could pull it off, I barley keep up as it is, truth is I don't always keep up at all, many days I am just treading water. Maybe once I get caught up on the piles around here I will give it some thought, it would help me re coop the cost of this fancy dancy machine that is a joy to work with!!
