Most of the people I know within the sewing industry don't actually sell sewn goods or handmade items.
Instead, they design patterns/fabrics, write books, teach, blog/vlog, and represent brands as a spokesperson.
While not impossible, it is definitely challenging to make an acceptable profit from making and sewing, then selling finished products.
I personally do not sell what I make at this time, and never have on a serious basis.
If you have, I'd love to hear more about your experience and what it takes to succeed.

In other news, I'm starting sort of a #destash account on Instagram @sewingreportshop
Soon, I'll be starting to post fabric, sewing patterns, and other goodies. That will also be the place where I may occasionally try to sell sewn items and other miscellaneous things as part of that social experiment I was talking about toward the end of last week's live show.
