Lil' Bit Sassyis a wonderful shop on Etsy. I have actually purchased some items from this shop!! After receiving them, I knew I had to feature Rhonda and her shop! Rhonda has had her shop on Etsy since December 2007. She lives in Meadville, PA. You can find her blog HERE. She posts what new things she is working on, what's going on in her life and she also has give aways!! (that's how I found her, but I didn't win that one)
How did you decide on your shop name? Why did you start your business? I decided to name my store Lil' Bit Sassy because so many people have called me lilbit (I'm only 4'9")and I tend to be a bit on the sassy side, so Lil' Bit Sassy seemed to be a perfect name!
When did you start sewing? Who taught you to sew? I actually haven't been sewing for very long compared to some. I started sewing about three years ago because I was looking for another craft I could sink my teeth into. As if I needed another! I had already been cross stitching, doing plastic canvas, and paper crafting for quite some time, and thought sewing would be a new and fun craft. So many things I could make! I basically taught myself how to sew just by buying simple patterns and trying them out. I started out making purses and still enjoy that very much.
Where do you create? What would you love to add to your sewing space? Unfortunately, I don't have an extra room that I can use for a craft room, so I have a small sewing table under the dining room window. I also a cutting table that folds up that I tuck under the stairs when not in use. I would LOVE to have a sewing room! Maybe when I win the lottery lol. I do have a spare room upstairs I use for storing all my fabric and other craft supplies but it has very low ceilings so not much wall space for me to be able to use for a sewing room.
What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why? I love everything I make, but my favorite things to make are baby items and purses. I like the baby items because I can use the cutest fabrics! And also bright, bold colors which I LOVE! I like making purses because I can make so many different styles and sizes.
What's my supply addiction? FABRIC! No matter how much fabric I buy, there is always one I absolutely HAVE to have lol. I could open my own store with all the fabric I've acquired, but it is nice to have so much because when I want to start a new project, I don't have to go to the fabric store. I can just pick something out of my stash instead lol.
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems. But it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
