indobay shop update: Sew-it-Yourself Kits

Sew-it-yourself Pillow Cover Kits by indobay My Sew-it-Yourself Pillow Cover Kits have been in the works for a long time! I had the idea to offer a "sew-it-yourself"  kit for over a year and a half now.

My thoughts are that there are folks who like my designs but could sew the pillow covers themselves or at least would like to try and save a little money in the process. I wanted to offer a product that made sewing easy, fun and gave them that sense of satisfaction that I always get when I make something with my own hands.

If you are like me, the worst part about sewing is not the sewing but the measuring and cutting of the fabric. I tend to agonize over the cutting process which means it can take me FOREVER to cut fabric!

Hmmm...this got me to thinking. What if I offered a kit where that is already completed for you. All you have to do is follow the directions that I provide, and with a little time and effort you can create an indobay designed pillow cover all on your own!

Finally, after many stops and starts I am ready to offer the kits in my shop...almost.

I have enlisted the help of a couple of my indobay facebook friends who will be receiving one of my kits. They have agreed to try the kits out themselves and provide brutal feedback about what they think.

Was the kit what they expected?

Were the directions clear and easy to follow?

Were the pictures I provided along with the directions helpful?

Did their pillow cover turn out like they had hoped?

What would make this product better?

I want to make sure that the end user is extremely happy with their kit and the end product!

I will keep you posted on the feedback I receive and will let you know as soon as the kits are for sale in the shop. I can't wait!
