A milestone for Watermelon Wishes

Friday, September 3, 2010

Amid the release of our diaper bag sewing tutorials, this week hereby marks a milestone for Watermelon Wishes.


Twofold, my intention with the tutorials is more than an aspiration to show others how to create a keepsake or gift. I would also like to be able to present people who hold a similar interest in sewing (and passion for bags) with the opportunity to manufacture and market a viable product.

Friday Factoid: There are more than 11,000 babies born in the U.S. every day.

Wouldn’t it be nice if all of these mamas had a handmade diaper bag? I think so!

Like each of my creations, a great deal of thought has gone into the development of the tutorials. Geared especially for the visual learner, they contain oodles of color photographs and illustrations; in addition to a handy “Basics” guide which breaks the construction process into five simple steps.

The initial feedback has been quite favorable and I am looking forward to sharing more of my ideas with you in the near future.

Happy sewing!

Andrea

Saw your bags through ETSY. I've been wanting to make diaper bags myself and I made a pattern too. I think your diaper bag are the best I've seen. But its so sad that I see a lot of people copying your work and that's one of the reason why I don't want to sell stuff one esty. I want to make diaper bags and house ware stuff.I just need to save money for fabrics.

Barbara,

Imitation is the highest form of flattery. Please don’t let the fear of being copied stop you from doing what you enjoy. Etsy is a wonderful forum for artisans of all sizes and skill levels. In terms of saving up for fabric, I say start with what you have. Sew one bag, sell that and then make another. If you take it one day at a time, a well stocked store will be yours before you know it. All the best! Andrea
