Valen-Tiny Etsy Update

Hey hey hey!

So we managed to squeak in a tiny Valentine’s Day update in the Etsy shop. I was working on a new item last night, but I didn’t finish the pattern. Hopefully I can add that in the next few days. Before the end of the week, I also need to make my mom a birthday present, submit some work for a sweets-themed art show at Hairy’s gallery by Wednesday, and ideally, make a cupcake scarf for a buddy visiting on Friday, because we’re supposed to do an art trade, and it’s taken us both eons to finish! 😛

Please enjoy the lil bit of Valentine goodness! Pieces are in limited quantities, so please act fast if you’re interested :). I’ll let you guys know if I manage to sneak any new items in! Thanks for your patience.  I know my shop is kind of bare and weird, but I am hoping my Spring will be a little less psychotic!

FYI, that’s my new duvet cover and pillow shams from PBTeen. Cute, but not very soft :(. Any tips? Just keep washing it for 2 years?

    Usually something like Dish washing soaps ( I use an organic free and clear from Costco) and baking soda thrown in with your laundry detergents, I use both, will remove starches from your cottons pretty easily I’ve found. Also the type of water you have can make it harder to get linens softer faster

    Wash your new sheets in salt! Add salt to the rinse cycle and it usually softens it up. I soak my vintage cottons in salty or fabric softener water overnight

    Ooh, there’s a really good way to make fabric softer that I found on Pinterest! Like Capricia said, salt is the key! Brine your sheets for about 2-3 days and then wash with a dash of detergent.

    just try some old fashioned liquid fabric softener for the washing machine.

    You can alwasy add some vinager to the wash water, Thats what I do to make my towels super soft!

  6. I saw the new items this morning in my etsy feed – LOVE as always!!!!
    Somethings never soften up – i dont know what is up with that??????? but i hope yours do bc those linens are WAY too cute to not be soft!
