$80 Side Hustle

October 13th, 2017 at 12:09 am

I had a mini job fall right into my lap. My neighbor asked me to sew a fabric key fob/lanyard, like the one I had given her. She wanted to give them as teacher gifts this Christmas.

I figured she just needed one or two! No, she requested ten. And I charged her $8 each. They don't take much fabric, but I did have to go buy more than I had on hand. And I definitely wanted to make it worth my time.

This was about a month ago that she requested them. I got right on it and she paid me this week! I could get used to this kind of side hustle.

I've added the money to the Big Goal!

    Wow that's awesome! Do you mind sharing a photo and maybe instructions? I'm thinking about making pillows to sell

    Here's the website with instructions.

    I'm making two pillows for my home tomorrow. I'm using Martha Stewarts instructions for the envelope backed opening version:
