I found some great colors to work with: midnight blue, mustard, coral; cherry red, blush pink, lavender; vintage flowers of blue, pink, green & yellow.

But, this one might be my very favorite.

Gussy Sews products are handmade in Los Angeles in small batches. Click here to shop >>

PS. A few weeks ago I decided it was time to start sewing again, and this one small (big?) change has been just what I needed as a creative mama. I’m so glad I listened to my intuition and re-joined the handmade community.

Yesterday’s sewing accomplishment.

I’ve shared here & there how I’m sewing more, but all of this is possible only because I have a dedicated “work day” each week. This has been a fairly easy transition for me as a mama, mostly because I have so much peace knowing the kids are going to daycare together as a pair, but also because I adore where they’re going. And then there’s this (which has been so critical to me personally): in terms of general Maggie-ness, I feel a million times better having reserved time each week to pursue my creativity. I didn’t realize how much I had been missing sewing and challenging myself with details of handmade until Zack and I began talking about re-opening one of my shops. Suddenly an hour of conversation had passed, and plans had been made to re-arrange our furniture so I could sew in front of our large picture window (amongst other family/home changes).

It’s been AMAZING for me to track on paper how much work I’m able to get done during a single “work day” when I put my focus entirely on WORK. That means no phone calls. No texts. No social media/app checking. No laundry. No home tidying. No stopping at [X] on the way home. No.

Instead, it’s simply, work. I use a daily planner (similar) to jot down work ideas and to-dos throughout the week, which helps me later on know exactly what to focus on (there’s no guessing or time wasting happening over here, folks!). It’s been so good.

Yesterday was a hugely productive sewing day. I finished 17 Gussy Sews pouches, complete with ruffles and my favorite embroidered twill tags! And yep, this batch of Gussy Sews zips will be listed shortly, so stay tuned :) Looks like my action plan is treating me well — hooray!

Hi there! A small handful of Gussy Sews products have been added to the shop. There are a few different sizes of zip pouches including our most-popular wristlet (which holds diapers & travel wipes perfectly). I love the pop of color each pouch boasts. Click here to view the collection. Once we sell out these particular styles/combinations are gone for good. See you on Monday with a special post! :)
