    I've been drawing and selling surface patterns for fabric. I have the fabric printed by Spoonflower and sew handkerchiefs and neck gaiter/buffs. I sell at local antique and knick knack shops. I've sent samples here and there but I've only gotten one biz that consistently buys wholesale from me. It's not much coin but it keeps me busy and there's been quite a substantial bump due to the covid.

    Yes, I sew. I guess I'm a seamster.
