I’ve had my etsy shop opened for a few months now and several people have been asking me how it’s going, so I thought I’d do a little update.
The short answer is, great! I’ve been getting orders pretty steadily: not so many that I feel overwhelmed and not so few that I don’t feel like keeping it going. I am enjoying it, making a little money and having fun, so it’s great!
I have been going crazy over the possibility of making Jayce a little tie t shirt since I got my sewing machine. However, I have not been able to use it yet because I can’t seem to find the elusive bobbin holder that my model requires, so I finally just made a no sew version. (PS-OMG, love my little model boy in this picture!! 🙂
It was so cute and so easy, that I made a dozen more (seriously). And I loved the material so much that I put the appliques on my site, which you can find here, along with a few other tie options.
I also just added this yellow necklace, which I love.
One of the custom orders I made recently was for a woman who is a photographer and wanted some photo blocks for her daughter. I thought they turned out so cute that I just had to share them. Isn’t she a little sweetie?
Another fun thing about etsy is that people periodically will make a treasury, which is a compilation of a few of their favorite items that they’ve found on etsy, which they then share with other etsy shoppers. There is typically some sort of category in mind. Anyway, I have been lucky enough that a few of my items have made their way into different people’s treasuries, which is so fun! Can you find my projects in the photos below? I had some blocks on 2 other treasury lists, but that was before I knew how to take a screen pic, so these are the most recent. It’s great because it drives a little traffic to your site, it’s sweet and flattering.
Well that’s all for now, but stop by the shop sometime to say hi and see what’s new. 🙂
I’m planning to get caught up on my blogging this week, so you should be hearing more from me soon! Happy Monday!
