New ideas required
I've had a similar "product line" - if you can call it that; usually I just sew what I like and if someone else likes it enough to buy it, then that's a bonus - for about a year now. And all of a sudden, I'm desperate for fresh, new ideas.
I have a few things in mind. I've never made coin purses before, or other wallet-y type things. I know lots of other people out there make them too, but I'm quite happy to add my line to the competition.
I also think I'm going to start making more of my beautiful baby cot quilts ... usually I only do these on special request, or as a present. I think though, that they're one of my favourite items, and I should make them more regularly. I really enjoy playing with all the colours and patterns and putting together a vibrant, colourful quilt top. That's the fun part - the actual construction is less fun, and usually involves a bit of muttering under my breath, but the end result is always wonderful.
I've thought about starting to make clothes, but that's something I really only do for myself; and I'd rather not take the joy out of it by making it a product line.
What do you think? What particular item have you always wanted, but never been able to find?
