They’re here! Inside my Gussy Sews shop are eight brand new pouches.
They are perfectly ruffled, perfect in color, and perfect in size. This time around I’m offering two different sizes to help you stay organized as you go about your day. And, if you’re someone who changes bags often (like me), having a pouch with your essentials is so so helpful for hello, switching bags.

Maybe you’re new-ish around here and aren’t sure what this Gussy Sews shop talk is all about? Let me fill you in :) About eleven years ago, right around this time of year, I found myself obsessed with the idea of sewing and running a handmade shop. I have always loved pouches, purses, and pouches & purses, so learning how to make them felt like the perfect product to make.
While living in Minneapolis, I began to share my journey on my blog and social media. One day, after many months of sewing practice and a few generous customers, I woke up and realized I could make my Gussy Sews shop my full-time job. So I quit my day job proofreading content at an Ad agency and jumped in with both feet. A few months later, I hired a few helpers.
A little while later my family moved to Los Angeles, and that’s when a new type of love was born: our first child. I was completely enthralled with motherhood and caring for my newborn son, and I began to see my business transition from full-time to part-time. Soon we were welcoming our second child, a daughter. And again, my Gussy business naturally transitioned as I re-arranged my priorities. My husband and I have since welcomed two more babies, yes — FOUR KIDS!, and we currently live near Detroit. As you can probably guess, Gussy Sews is not my current full-time job :)
However, I’ve found a new way to share the passion I have for Gussy Sews, and that is through occasional online pop-up shops and in-home markets. I really love my Gussy business. The products I design and sew are reliable, feature high-quality 100% cotton fabric and tell a really beautiful story of motherhood woven with creativity. Living a creative life is important to me. I’m so grateful to have my handmade shop walk alongside me as I raise my children and encourage follow mothers and women. There’s nothing like the power of a praying woman to encourage you along your journey!
Here are some details you should know about the 2019 holiday pop-up:

As always, I’m so very grateful for you!
