Wanna help support my habit?!

I really like to sew. Its addicting and I am borderline obsessed with fabric. I love finding just the right thing. Now I'm by no means an expert seamstress but I have learned a lot and I have actually sold a few thing and done custom orders through Greenies. The one downside to moving out of Ellen and Wayne's house is I no longer have immediate access to her serger. Which means my seams look like this...

instead of this.
I realized how much I would actually use one this week as I did a marathon sewing session. I made a dress for Ivy and 3 shirts for me. Plus if I want to be able to continue selling stuff I need a serger. After talking to Darin about it I've decided that if I'm going to get one I need to prove that it would be a good investment as soon as possible by selling some of my creations. SEW(haha) if you want to help me out and get some really fun stuff such as a super cute sundress for a little girl like this one...
or some cute ruffle pants and a top like these...
even baby blankets, bibs, a purse or a breezy shirt like this one...
(it would be an awesome maternity shirt!) then leave a comment or email me and we'll figure it out!
Just give me an idea on colors and what you would like. Which means I'll get to find some really amazing fabric and feel justified in getting it! And I can make some more dresses that AREN'T for Ivy cuz she can only have so any right?! Well enough of my shameless plug. Thanks guys!

Jenn,

I would totally have you make some stuff for me. If only I knew what I was having...I do need a breastfeeding nursing cover up that can loop around the neck...I like the ones at target, but they only had pink and black which I don't want if I have a boy. I'm sure there is some cute neutral pattern around. hmm i could give you a bunch of other orders...I just have to think about it. Your stuff is so cute, makes me want to learn how to sew!! Ok, kind of...

So what is greenies? I've posted things on etsy.com and made a sale which included 5 items. Nothing big, yet but my stuff is for winter and I haven't posted my really cool stuff yet. (Cool fabrics and better pics). BTW, your pics come out so bright and nice. What is your secret?

Ok, in about a month I'm having my 3rd girl. I definitely need some cute dresses for all of them. They don't have to match, although coordinating colors would be nice. I'm an aspiring seamstress, but my skills will have to wait a while as I adjust to another baby. If you want to make something for the fall, that would be great! All of your fabrics look adorable, so I'm sure you could pick them out better than I could. Alli is in a size 5-6, Claire is a 2T and the baby will be 0-3 month size. Call me if you still have my cell number or email me and we'll chat... I'm excited already!

Oh man Jenn, you are making me feel like a slug seeing how productive you are! I made pillowcase dresses for my girls earlier this summer and LOVE them but I swear, with measuring and cutting and sewing it took like 3+ hours to make 2 dresses! Where did you get your pattern for Ivy's dress? It is SO cute, I love it...I just might try another project.
