Yup, quit my job at Mac's to sew pocket squarez for iGents on the interwebz. Few things in the world could be more gratifying!

Agreed. It is very calming. I probably don't make as many as Gshen due to school but it helps put me to sleep every night. I used to have horrible insomnia. But not any more. It is more of a hobby than an actual business though. My queue is about 3 weeks long (not because I have that many orders but because I make so few) and it is amazing how patient people are. The people on SF truly are gentlemen when it comes to waiting. For me, it probably pays the rent and that's it. I can't afford my ridiculous equipment bills for school or my tuition.

You know I have often wanted to just head out to the garment district here in LA and buy up the fabrics that I like and cut them to then have edges sewn. The only thing holding me back is the fact that I don't know of any cleaners that do this for sure. Guess best thing to do is ask before I end up with a bunch of swatches of fabric.
