apple pin toppers

Imagine my surprise when I received an email about a week ago that someone was interested in purchasing some of my pin toppers!!  I honestly hadn't really even thought of selling them at that point.  In the back of my mind I am always worried that when I make things for people they won't be happy with them or think they are good enough.  Let alone having someone pay for something I made and when they receive it, think it wasn't worth what they paid for. 

So this question kind of caught me by surprise, and while I was honored and flattered, I didn't know what to say.  After thinking about it for a few days, I decided, what the heck, if someone is interested in puchasing what I've made for a fair price, I should go with it.  I think I just need to readjust my thought process, and instead of doubting everything I make, and wondering if it's "good enough," know that as long as I am happy with it, it's a-ok.

These are a few flowers that she requested (along with the apples above and the cupcakes below).  We decided on what I think is a fair price at $4 per topper. 

If anyone else is interested in purchasing any of these little guys, send me an email to sewcraftyjess@gmail.com or leave me a comment and we can figure out the details.

While watching Dancing with the Stars last night, I started playing around with a few new topper designs, and came out with these:

I have to say, that little ice cream cone I think is my favorite...although I could never say no to cake.

...and if your wondering, yes those are my completed postage stamp blocks in the background!  Tonights plan is to start turning them into a quilt top! 

I also wanted to mention that April of KoolBeenz is hosting an awesome giveaway sponsored by The Fat Quarter Shop!  Head on over to enter to win a fabulous Jelly Roll!!
