My brand spanking new Etsy shop is finally up and running. After being held up week after week by a supplier, I finally was sick of it and just decided to go ahead with it.
First thing first was to design a logo. Who knew this would take me hours, dam my fussiness! I came up with an idea after working on it for literally about 4 hours late last Friday night. I went to bed thinking I was happy, and when I woke up I realised I wasn't. How typical. So I put it aside for a little while and when I came back to it, I made some changes and was finally happy. What do you think?
Once that was done, it was onto designing my banner for my Etsy store, plus stickers and other paraphernalia that I needed for when I actually made a sale. I really love the banner I now have, I love stumbling across beautiful Photoshop brushes and them being precisely what you want.
And then it was onto photographing my initial stock of 25 items. Each one needing at least 3 photos! I was over it, and you can probably tell by the slightly dodgy photo editing efforts. :) Anyway, they get the point across, here are a few samples of what I'll be selling.
Firstly, a knitting bag which you may have seen on here before. I use mine all the time, I find them so handy to carry everything around in, and also keep it clean. (That scarf will feature in an upcoming post when I get it finished!)
This design was inspired by something my Mum has, that she's been using for the past 20 or so years. Hers was a bit daggy, made with older style fabric. I thought I'd jazz the design up with some of my favourite fabric, to make a retro style food carrier! Isn't the cupcake fabric oh so cute?
And then, baby bibs. I think these are so cute and I only wish I had my own baby to deck out in them. Oh well, the babies of my friends will have to do!
So that's it! Now I just have to run it, but I'm so glad to finally see it up and running. I adore sewing, so I'm hoping to come up with some new designs to keep it well stocked. Stop on by if you get the chance.
