a new adventure

so yesterday i said openly i wish i was a girl... well that was me giving a written clue to my new etsy shop called... yeah you guessed it, i wish i was a girl.
its been ready to rumble since early January but only now have i got around to putting some things in it..
so imagine a big piece of pink ribbon across the virtual doors, and me holding a massive pair of scissors, cut, and i announce this new shop OPEN...... i have been making and selling these for ages now, and if i say so myself have sold lots.. all in different lovely fabrics...all reversible, and usually in either size 6-12m or 1-2 yrs... i have found this size works best for the fabrics and seems to be the sizes that sell best... as i said a few weeks back I'm becoming addicted to fabrics, and recently have been on a shopping mission to all corners of the world,via my little net book, and have been getting some amazing fabrics... so watch this space.. i really do wish i was a girl... i really do i promise..

i want to wear dresses

so i wish i was a girl sometimes, because as a big fat hairy man, i would get laughed at for wearing pretty dresses.. so when i saw these lovely things hanging on a rail at deptford market, i knew that i had to rescue them for someone other than myself to wear and enjoy...i think from the style and polyester fabric they are from the 70s, but i hope you agree the patterns are what makes them so unique, and i really don't think they have ever been worn.i actually can imagine that the guy who was selling them found them in the back of some long forgotten factory store room... and just rolled out the rail as they were.. and they are now all in my shop stevensstuff...

my world is quite bright

so i don't have many words. just pictures.... i have been so busy recently making and sewing as if its my job.. when did that happen ?.. i used to make and create for fun, and if i sold the thing then it was a bonus, but now I'm doing it the other way around.. i want to sell what i make... so whilst things are happening that i will show on here soon, i just took a few pics of my room... the sun was bright and i just snapped what in saw... is it too much ?.. possibly. but i love it.. its mine.
