Fabric is taking over my house!

« on: August 12, 2013 07:47:49 AM »

I've been selling purses and bags for a few years now, on Etsy and at craft fairs, and although I love it and have done pretty well at it, I simply don't have the time to do it anymore. I work full time and have a 7 month old so my sewing time is very limited. The problem is that I have a TON of fabric and notions and I will never have time to sew with all that fabric.

My idea was to write up some of my patterns and sell them with the fabric as kits. I'm not sure if it will take off though for several reasons. One, some people like handmade bags but are not confident enough to sew one themselves. Two, a lot of people who would sew a bag like to choose their own fabric for purses. So, would you buy a kit that had the pattern, fabric, interfacing, and any buttons, zippers or magnetic snaps you needed?

Also, I was thinking of doing a variety of difficulties. Simple clutches and zipper pouches, all the way up to a fully interfaced, many pocketed messenger bag. Any advice is appreciated!

If you like handmade bags and purses, check out my etsy!
