Hey y’all! My goodness it has been a while since I’ve blogged. Sorry for the radio silence friends. I’ve been busy working on my new business, Ellison Lane Handmade. It’s been a whole lot of handmade goodness around here for the past few months, and I’m loving it.
When my youngest started Kindergarten last Fall I knew I wanted to make the most of my time at home while both my kiddos were in school. Like lots of stay at home moms, I hoped to be able to add to the family income while still being home with my kids. It’s a tall order and not easy to do. I have long been a maker, a doer and a dreamer so I pulled on my big girl pants and jumped into making handmade my business.
Spurred on by the inspiring BIG MAGIC book, I focused on what I felt called to make as well as what I do well. That my friends, is bags. I love them myself and love making them.
From handmade zippy pouches big and small to project bags for knitting and crocheting, I’ve been exploring patterns and tweaking designs and am delighted with the outcome.
I put my heart into each and every bag I make. I take time with the details. I choose fabrics carefully. I love color and I love handmade and I love quality so all of that matters a great deal to me when I am creating.
To be honest, it is a bit of a roller coaster. It’s scary to put myself out there and to hope that folks like what I make and it has been a bit of trial and error to find my niche and my style.
I’ve worked hard to refine my designs, and I’m really excited about my line of project bags. They’re ideal for knitting and crocheting and they seem to be resonating with makers and customers too. That feels amazing.
Shop update coming Sunday night 5 PM EST. BIG project bags and a few small ones too. This feathers print has me all 😍😍😍. You too?
