Over the last 6 months, a lot has happened - business has expanded and been absolutely wonderful! I've have been very busy keeping up with a steady stream of orders and creating new and unique items. Also, I began making American Girl size clothing, like these:
Both of these outfits can be bought here, along with the matching outfits and hair candy for your daughter! A wonderful seamstress friend of mine created the hair candy and the girls' clothing.
In the coming weeks, I will be filling orders for these outfits as well as building up my shop inventory and preparing for BarbieBoutiqueBasics' first TV spot. My products will be featured on the Show Me St. Louis segment "Jennifer's Favorite Finds" (watch her latest segment here). I am too excited about this!! This will mean HUGE exposure for my shop!
I will also be preparing for an upcoming "Christmas in July" craft show that is being held by a local quilting community. This will be another exciting opportunity to reach my local market. I have a feeling I will be running a special in my shop to coincide with this event.
Well, dear reader, it is time for me to sit behind my sewing machine and get to creating! I hope to finish these orders up soon and start on a new line of boutique fashions for Barbie - I'll post photos once they are done! Until then, check out these most recent creations:
