New Listings at Goofing Off Sewing: Happy Veteran’s Day!

A happy Veteran’s Day to all. Regardless of what war we are involved in and the latest foreign policy, these men and women put their lives on the line to defend our way of life. Remember, thank a veteran.

Well, how is your week going? Mine has been challenging, to say the very least. Last weekend I was going to have a yard sale and thought I would bake some brownies to sell at the sale….until I found out my oven didn’t work. I tried to iron my scrubs for work and the iron caught fire….flames shooting from the cord on fire. I decided maybe having a yard sale last weekend wasn’t such a good idea. Luckily, no damage from the fire but watching the cord jump around on my ironing board with flames shooting out the end gave me a start.

The good stuff is I did buy a new stove….real pretty thing….that should arrive this week and ordered a new iron that arrived yesterday…..and today starts a mini-vacation that includes a trip to NYC with a party at THE Plaza and a visit with family. I am so excited. Hope my camera works well so I can share.

Here’s the newest listings on Etsy. Lots of costume patterns for children and adults because make believe doesn’t need a holiday.

I love the way Disney’s princesses have become leaders, brave leaders. Prince Charming still exists but she isn’t waiting for him to arrive anymore….and they are equal partners now. Anyway, this girl is an archer. How cool is that?

So many little girls are still singing Let it Go. Frozen was such a big hit. Here’s dresses for the 18 inch dolls, like American Girl, so their dolls can be Elsa or Ana, too.

Quick and easy to sew capes for children.

These cute princess dresses are an “It’s So Easy” pattern and have a cape….because a princess needs a cape, too.

Being a Disney princess isn’t just for little girls.

I’ll be listing more in the shop so stop by and see what’s new. More costume patterns, more fabrics, more thread…but now I have shopping to do (food for the hubby while I am out of town) and ironing to do before I go. It’s amazing how that piles up…..sort of like asexual reproduction. None of that…it just builds up magically.
