Make It Sew

I've been toying around with the idea of putting a name to my creations.  I once called my stuff "Earth Loom Creations". But although I liked that the name incorporated my connection to the earth, the name quickly lost its appeal. It felt chunky.  It just didn't roll off the tongue.

After the break from crafting that I took after I felt defeated by my wrist, I have mostly been sewing. I enjoy the beautiful things I can make and it doesn't hurt! "Earth Loom" doesn't really make sense any more.  Plus, I feel anew. And that refreshing feeling deserves a fresh new name.

I'm debating whether or not to go with something with the word "sew" in it.  It's a bit restrictive.  Just like "loom" rules out anything not woven, it rules out crafts that are not sewn.  

Just before starting this blog, I asked my mother for suggestions, then quickly came up with "Make It Sew" myself. For those of you unfamiliar, I enjoy the subtle reference to Star Trek. I like that it had "make" in it.  Which leads me think why not just go with "Make It So".  It still encompasses the craftiness with "make". Then again, having "sew" in there might keep me focused. 
I'm not thinking about making this into a business.  I'm still in the divorce stage of my last business.  But perhaps a hobby that I could make a little bit of craft supply money off of? ;)
