|Airplane Toddler Blanket Custom Order Front|
The fabric should be shipped out tomorrow so new sewn projects should be coming off the lines in the coming weeks. Up first will be the new gloves I am almost finished with, only a few more inches to go then I just need to tie in the ends and call it a day.
For those of you tracking project Elmo. The body is now complete, I just need to figure out how I want to do the hood for Elmo's eyes and nose. I can't decide if I want to sew the hood onto the body or to just leave it as more of a hat. Any thoughts? It might be a conversation I have with my mom when we go visit her in a few weeks. Yes, even owning my own company based around sewing. knitting, and crocheting, I still call mom for advice! I really want to try it on my son to make sure it fits, but I know the ramifications for that will mean that Elmo won't come off for a long time. I fear it must happen, it's just a matter of when.
I find it interesting that my custom orders are really what's driving Stitch Silly of late. When we opened our doors in May I thought that custom orders would be rare and most of my sales would come from my product inventory. I'm curious, what is your break out of custom to inventory sales?
