New Site to sell stuff on!

crafts, creative, DIY

I was asked to join in on the site ipublicate and sell my sewing patterns.

Their site is all about hot to do or learn everything fun and creative!

I just listed my instructional sewing patterns on it today. It’s kind of like an ETSY site but more of an online resource where all people, regardless of status, location, or education can share their unique areas of expertise for profit in multiple formats with those who seek it while keeping all rights to their ideas and materials. iPublicate is also a marketplace in which seekers of knowledge can peruse and purchase information from it’s original source.
Check them out!

I went to the flea market this morning and there was some great finds!
I got a ton of buttons and some wool pants from the 70’s to cut up to make some zippered bags and wallets out of!
