I’ve wanted to expand my Christmas line for a while and summer is the best time to work on new things as sales are usually pretty slow. Plus now that my daughter is stable and we’re only spending one day a week or so at the hospital, I have a little breathing room to create. My husband keeps reminding me to take it slowly and have some fun. He knows me well.
Last summer I was able to expand slightly with a new color and smaller versions of the Christmas stockings I already have, but that’s it. The rest of my ideas haven’t made it past the sketch phase.
I recently unearthed the Christmas product sketches I did at least 2 (or 3?) years ago. They are the perfect projects to start with–small, simple and ideas I’ve wanted to bring to fruition for a long time….The first is my Snowman Christmas Ornament…
Then my machine started making a squeaky sound and the stitches were all inconsistent and tight. (Of course I didn’t take a picture – who wants to document their mistakes?)
That did the trick!…
I’ll be refining this a bit more but I think it’s a good start and worth developing further. This sample will go on our family Christmas tree. = )
What do you think?
