Making and Selling diapers!

My husband just got me a sewing machine! I have wanted a machine for YEARS! I have wanted to make diapers, nursing pads, etc ... This came as a shock to me so I didn't research on how to sell items. But since I am a SAHM, I would love to upgrade to WAHM!! How do I go about this? Do I have to have something special to sell diapers like, on etsy or HC?
Any other tips or tricks or websites would be helpful! =] Yes, I can google search but we all know how that goes

Re: Making and Selling diapers!

Ah what a great gift!! I don't sell anything I make. I love to sew but I don't think I make anything that is professional, sellable quality... if you want to be a WAHM, my first question would be how skilled are you with a sewing machine?

Re: Making and Selling diapers!

I am very skilled (I feel as if I am!). I have been sewing since age 7. I just haven't had a machine in a few years and never had the funds to get a new one. I used to make my own clothes all the time. Although, I have never sewn a diaper before. I'm sure that after a few months, I would feel comfortable selling. But nothing expensive.

Re: Making and Selling diapers!

If you can sew your own clothes you can sew diapers for sure. There might be a little learning curve but I have no doubt that you will be great at it.
I would think of a name for your business, goggle it to make sure that no one else has it or anything similar. Get a business license with the state that you live in. I would also set up an fb page for your business, it's a great advertising tool!
Good luck to you mama, how exciting!

Okay that! The Business Licence. I'll have to google for more info but I'm totally going to check into that =]
I have been trying to find a name for a business for a while now. LOL. I think my husband knew I wanted to do this so bad and thats why he was on a hunt for a sewing machine! =]

PS: I will totally join the WAHM group! =]
