Satin Poi

So, I'm learning that if one wants to sew, or be crafty in general, for a living, one needs to find an under-served market and carve their niche. I've been spinning Poi for about two years. Just out of curiosity, I searched for poi on etsy and was delighted to find that few sellers focus their efforts on poi, and those that are available seem to vary in degrees of quality and presentation.

After procuring all of the essential hardware, I developed my own pattern and started a mini production line.
I think they've turned out really well - and they spin smoothly with little effort. They're great for practice indoors!! Later today I'll be posting them for sale on my etsy page, La Petite Menagerie.

Ch-ch-ch-check it out. They're fully customizable in fabric and length of handles and tail.
