What have you been working on? Someone asked me about making a minky blanket with zebra fabric. I have to admit I've become obsessed. This is one of my favorite customer requests I've ever received because I love the prints- and she has purchased four blankets from me. It makes me giddy. I love it when custom orders are such a good idea- I wish I had thought of making more of these blankets.
Custom order are great but I realized early on that people aren't commiting to buy it when they ask if you can make something. It can get REALLY expensive if you've made some odd combination and they realize it is just as strange looking as you thought it was before you made it for them, lol. So I try to do things that I think would be cool either way. The zebra blanket idea was BRILLIANT! I find myself scouring the internet to find what kind of fabric I could buy.
Thank goodness for great ideas and morning naps
