One Off Pieces - Little Girl Pinafore

For a while now I have toyed with the idea of making and selling children's clothes and quilts but there is such a saturation of market AND my biggest hurdle is I don't want to have to make things, I just want to make them sometimes. So I thought maybe I could do one off pieces occasionally and offer them for sale online. What do you think? Is there a market for something like this?

To test the market I thought I would offer this gorgeous little pinafore I made for my daughter but she never had the chance to wear. It is for size 9-12 months, say size 0, corduroy on the outside and lined with soft lawn. It can fit slightly older children too as a top and is perfect for winter with little tights and top underneath.
Cost $36 including postage Australia wide.
Email me or leave a comment if you are interested. I have also listed it on Instagram and Facebook so first in best dressed. I

Corn flour and a whole heap of mess

We finally did something I read about on Pinterest yesterday - GOOP made from cornflour. I already had some of the cloud sand (made from cornflour and baby oil) so we started with that and then moved on to the somewhat messier goop. I made the cloud sand over a year ago and stored it in a container with a lid and it was as good as the day I made it.
The kids had a great time throwing it around and then cleaning up afterwards. Next time though we will do it on the lawn and not the deck. I would also recommend you lock up and pets to avoid them getting covered and also eating the mess (might make for a sore tummy!). Head to my Pinterest board DIY kids stuff and activities ( for some links on how to do this yourself.
