i knew that, once i re-whet my appetite for hand-sewing, (with the miniature felt bunnies that i stitched for my niece’s nursery), that i would be doing a lot of it. it has been really enjoyable reconnecting with my stitching roots…i haven’t done much of it since my youth, when i was a member of 4H. it goes faster than the knit animals i have made, and there is no stipulation in the patterns that prevents me from selling the finished products.
as i have gone along these past few weeks, i have been strongly considering opening a separate shop in which to sell my finished felt creatures. i am not looking forward to managing two separate shops, but i can’t really see them coexisting with jewelry in my existing shop. here’s a look at what i have so far:
i have pretty much decided to move forward with the new shop, but it requires a solid time investment that encompasses researching how other sellers of art dolls, miniatures, and softies structure their shops, and fleshing out all the tedious bits, such as pricing, policies section, and about page. plus, i would like to ideally have around ten finished pieces with which to open shop, and i am not sure how long that will take to accomplish.
in the meantime, i will keep on stitching.
