first etsy sale!

On Friday evening I checked my email to find a message from etsy telling me I sold something!  Someone finally bought something from me!!  A guy from Ohio joined etsy just that day and ordered a Pittsburg Steelers crib sheet. 

I think Kevin sensed my eagerness and excitement, because he suggested that we (as a family) go to Joann Fabrics right away to get what I needed.  Of course, he mentioned more than once (to the people helping us at the store) that WE are NOT Steelers fans, haha!

When we got home I washed and dried the fabric.

On Saturday night I ironed the fabric, cut the fabric and serged the edges.  As you can imagine, this didn't take long at all.  Ironing the fabric took longer than anything else.

On Sunday night all I had to do was sew what needed to be sewed and add the elastic.  Again, this really took no time at all.  Once that was done, I put it on Claire's mattress to make sure it fit properly, then I learned from youtube how to fold a fitted sheet.  I then wrapped the lumpy square of fabric and tied a bow around it.

I mailed it Monday morning. 


  1. I'm really excited for you! I like that you had to look up how to fold a fitted sheet, because mine usually just end up rolled up in a ball.

  2. Congrats! That's so exciting!!! Ditto on the fitted sheets ending up a horrendous mess. They fit tight enough to pull the wrinkles out, anyway.
