Lolli You're So Funny

While sewing day & night, many amusing instances arise.  this comic is a depiction of one of those instances. 

This one had me rolling on the floor.  Lolli had a laptop case and told me to make sure that spiderman was on the front of it.  HeHe.  Lolli you are so special.  This type of case doesn't have a front or a back.  I still laugh thinking about that night.  It's the little things that get us through the crazy days.

JoJo Learns to Sew

Shortly after we started our Etsy site in January 2011, I (JoJo) bought a sewing machine.  I decided it was time to venture beyond crocheting, knitting, and jewelry making.  I mean how hard could it be, right. /wahaha One of my first projects was a "simple" dinosaur stuffed animal.  (See Below).  The poor little dinosaur didn't make it.  It was deflated, and sad and frustrating. 

I soon realized that I am not good at following patterns.  I have to take what it in my head and figure it out and just go.  Patterns are confusing and annoying and the dang paper never stays in place. X(  I began making fabric kindle cases and small purses.  After months of design changes, we have some amazing cases for ereaders.  When I got my first iPad for Christmas 2012, I immediately made a stand case for it and started selling those as well. 

I am by no means an expert.  Things go wrong.  The sewing machine has a life of it's own sometimes.  This can be very frustrating.  Where is Lolli when all this is going on?  She is silently sitting at here desk and hoping for the storm to pass.  I get a bit angry when things don't work out /omg  :D
Take the night, I did my first Kindle zipper case as a custom request for someone. After hours of trying to get the zipper in correctly.  I turned it inside out and was so happy it was almost done.  Then, I realized, I sewed the zipper in upside down.  Lolli just ran from the room. /blur  I was sooooooo mad.  

It's a crazy journey, but we are in it.

The Misadventures of JoJo and Lolli #1

How do two sisters, one a lawyer and one a chemist, become the operators of an online store that sells handmade products. It all started with a Christmas gift. We both received kindles for Christmas 2011, and I, JoJo (aka Amanda) quickly made felted covers for them. Everyone kept saying I should sell the things I crocheted. That is when I came upon, a place to sell handmade items.

Within days we had opened our Etsy shop. The2SistersShoppe. It took awhile but we are now a thriving enterprise and loving every minute of it. With our friends JoJo and Lolli (seen above), we will bring you the stories of triumph, failure, craziness, and everything else that goes into our shoppe.

Book Style Kindle Covers

Are you looking for a kindle/ereader cover that looks and feels like a book? We have exactly what you are looking for. These cases can be made to fit kindle, nook, Sony, kobo, etc. ereaders. We can also make these cases in different fabric.

We were reluctant to make these kind of cases at first. Our original ereader design is a sturdy soft cover that is machine washable and protective. When we made the first book style hard cover we realized how great they are in their own way. They are sleek, sturdy, protective, functional, and way more fashionable than any boring store bought cover. We have a style for whatever you are looking for. We know how much your ereader is part of your life. Why would you want a boring case for your ereader. Reading is an escape into different, fun, scary, crazy, adventurous worlds. Let your ereader express all of that as well.

You can find these cases and many more in our Etsy store. The2SistersShoppe
