I too stuck my toe into the etsy pond. Very few things...no sales.
PS. How do you make a banner
Your felted things are way too cute! I made my banner (at the top of http://umamihomemade.etsy.com
) in Macromedia Fireworks, which I believe you can download for free for 30 days from http://www.macromedia.com
. I set my banner's size at 77 pixels high and 535 pixels wide. Then I took a photo I'd taken (to avoid any copyright messiness), did a couple of Photoshop tricks to it, and added a font I got off of http://www.dafont.com/en
. The banner you make in Fireworks will be a .png file that you can upload to Etsy.
Let me know if you need any more help. I've learned a little here and there and am happy to help anyone that needs it!
