a few things

Months ago I fell in love with these and because I am trying to save money, I just couldn't. But since I wasn't mass creating them- I made some of my own for our own little budget.

We used a Sharpie and velcro- I don't do so great with zippers well actually I hate sewing them! Although only 4 are shown I made 5 pouches. I used some recycled,vintage and new fabrics- trying to stay within a similar color scheme. I only have 2 labeled. Gas & groceries and perhaps fun money or chai money will be designated.

Our wait still continues on the house. I have started packing and we now are in a sea of boxes. Packing with a toddler is kind of impossible. I put 5 things in the box she manages to pull out 7! I have also started purging stuff. We have a yard sale planned in a few weeks and I want to be able to have something to sell.

I added a new cuff to the shop and I have 2 more I am adding. Must go through my inventory and possibly find more unlisted items. Oh and my sewing machine is having a slight bobbin issue- so I'll have to take it back in for a tune up. Anyone else have issues with a Huskystar?
