Craft it Forward!!

I am going to be soooo very very busy this week!

I'm gonna be sewing my fingers to the bones because I am opening my etsy shop this Friday, June 26, 2009!!!!

Yeppers, gonna do it. My shop, Sew In Stitches, will be "filled" with aprons and tote bags and pincushions and more! (Click on the shop name it'll whisk you right there!)

I've decided to start the week of festivities by participating in the Blog Sensation that is quickly covering blogland!

Craft it Forward is sort of like the movie "Pay It Forward." The object is to do something nice "just because."

Here is the fine print:

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! This offer does have some restrictions and limitations so please read carefully:

* I make no guarantees that you will like what I make but I will do my best.
* it will be done in the next couple of weeks
* you have no clue what it’s going to be - that’s the fun part!
But it will be handmade.

It could be a handsewn item, stationary personalized for you, baked goods from my kitchen, or something knitted. What will it be? You’ll have to wait and see! I reserve the right to do something completely bizarre or completely normal.

In return, all you need to do is post this text into your own blog and make 5 things for 5 others. (If you don't blog you could send a mass e-mail to friends and craft for the first 5 respondents.) What could be more fun! Some ideas you could do for others: artwork, CD’s, burn a DVD, write a poem, crochet a scarf, make a mini book, send a photograph (a printed one, not e-mailed. etc…).

If you are interested, leave a comment below with your email address (if you don’t have a blog-based email address and are not comfortable leaving your personal email address, you can also email me at beckysews (at) hotmail (dot) com).

Check back often all week. I'll take breaks to update you on my progress and to announce a Grand Opening GiveAway!!!

Craft on and craft it forward!

Mucho love,


  1. Sounds completely awesome Becky. I will definitely check out your shop when it is up and running and good luck with it!

  2. Thanks so very much! I am crafting tote bags today!

  3. Hello Thank you for coming by my blog and posting. I hate to say this but I am just finishing up 2 Annie swaps back to back. But Keep watching there might be more Annies to come. I see your going to open an Etsy shop good luck to you. I know there are a lot of people out there that like aprons... Speaking of watch in the future on the blog more apron swaps to come ;)

  4. I'm so excited for your shop! I too am working on opening up an Etsy's a lot of work getting prepared...and you seem to be doing the same stuff I planned on too! I've been specializing in totes (crocheted) but I've been dying to start making aprons. Maybe I'll get my inspirations from what you have. Looking forward to the 26th!

  5. Can't wait to check out your shop, only one more day! Reading here just reminded me that I owe my grandma a purse. I think I hear her fabric calling my name.


Do tell! Whatcha thinkin?
