Fundraising!




So we are starting the process of fundraising. We have many family members who are gracious and kind that are giving us the money for the adoption but we would like to raise some money so they don't have to give so much. I learned how to make mesh bags this past summer and they are a blast!! They are very easy and fast to make. A friend of mine is also going to help make them so I'm hoping I'm not sewing 500 bags!! Oh well, if I have to though to help make this process easier.


I'm going to be the sewer and Brian is the seller. I told him to go out and market and just tell me what to make. We are probably going to have about 5 different fabrics at a time and rotate when I sell out of a fabric. I'm going to buy enough fabric to make 15 bags but if it is very popular than I will of course buy more!! A very good friend of mine Corinne is making a website for me to market the bags and it's going to be called http://www.adoptatote.com/. I'm so excited and can't wait to get it up and going. Brian designed the logo and it's very neat. Here is a picture of 3 of the bags that I did this weekend. Let me know what you think. I will definitely be sending out a BIG email to let everyone know when the website is ready!!!


I have already sold one bag!!!! We are so excited!!!!

What a good idea!! Polka dots and stripes would be cute. A coffee print would be fun too.
