    Arrow Handmade/Handsewn Products

    Hello All,

    My Wife & I are in the process of adopting a baby girl from China. We will name her Rachel Joy. If you are interested in handmade or handsewn products, please visit my Wife's site. She is extremely talented, and will take special orders. We plan to use profits to offset the adoption costs.

    Thank you for your support!

    Exclamation Re: Handmade/Handsewn Products

    Some of you have placed orders & my Wife is hard at work on those.

    My Wife & I truly appreciate your business! It's going to be a tremendous help in offsetting expenses since the adoption costs are $20,000 plus.

    Thank you, and God Bless.

    I believe Andrea is on to something with the new Toile aprons.

    Toile is very popular, because French Country (or Country French) decor is wildly popular.

    Toile patterns fit so well with that look for the home, and are really pretty.

    Women like me, with money to spend, sit at their computers and type in searches for things like French Country Decor.

    I'd like to suggest that she add a few more toile products to her line, really simple things to make, like placemats, napkins, potholders, and kitchen towels.

    Then add the words French Country (or Country French) Decor to her website to pick up on those searches.

    Everybody wants French Country and Toile designer items for the home. Toile totes and diaper bags would also be a big hit I think.

    Toile, Toile, Toile.....it seems to be here to stay.

    And these types of items should be a lot easier to sell than custom clothes, because people really like to try clothes on......

    I can see her selling Toile items for the home, and Toile accessories, to hundreds and thousands of customers on line. On Ebay, betcha she couldn't keep up.

    Toile comforters and pillow covers for cribs would be great also. And diaper holders that you hang on the wall.

    I don't sew, but as you can see, I like to give advice. Well, I am a more experienced and worldly woman.....and have the gray hair (but nothing a good bottle of Loreal won't cover) to prove it.

    Good Luck, Andrea

    Does she sell on ebay also? There's money tossed all around there for quality handmade items...

    No, she does not since the majority of her business is custom made to order.

    Essentially, if you can think it, she can sew it.
