This pouch is made from a cute little skirt I found at the thrift store. I took it home, washed it (thoroughly!) and then proceeded to cut it up to make this birdy pouch. As soon as I saw the skirt, I saw the bird and the pouch... funny how things work out like that.
And now for Shop Makeover, part 2...
I don't really have anything to report, other than a brand-new link on the Storque about more renovations for our Etsy shops. It's a great article! Some of the recommendations made in the article are already used my shop, such as:
- keeping the shop announcement short (and to the point) so that your featured items will be seen immediately
- to use your Profile as a space for all of your shop's policies (custom orders, shipping, returns, etc.)
- I did work on my descriptions, which I mentioned in yesterday's post.
The hardest thing for me now is remaking my avatar, and probably my banner, too. I tried to work on it today. For two hours. My mind is blank. (So I fooled around making new Etsy Texas Crafter avatars for my First Monday Sales instead. Those stank, too.) I'm having graphic-maker's block. I'm trying to imagine what would best represent my shop. The one constant in my shop is my use of recycled materials. Maybe an idea can grow from that. Tomorrow.
