I really feel like my shop has been doing very well considering everything I've done wrong. I listed a bunch of items around the same time, didn't list anything for a while, had horrible pictures, and listed things I didn't think I could sell just to try to sell something
to pay some bills. I sold 9 things in the past two months - I don't think that's too shabby considering that was the majority of my shop.
Unfortunately, all of October was a lost month for me, craft wise. My old room mate moved out (yay, she was a slob!) and I spent a lot of time cleaning, painting, rearranging the living room, totally rehauling the kitchen and the pantry, digging through the storage room in the basement, dealing with swap organizing stuff, rewiring the electronics, and sorting through my mountains of materials and supplies to set up my new craft room (!). For some reason I thought I'd get that all done in a week... It took a month but now I'm able to work on some fun projects - and with enthusiasm!
So here's my latest (almost finished) creation. It's a wallet/wristlet/clutch - it can be used as all three (the D ring folds in and holds keys if needed for use as a clutch). The colors aren't 100% true, but pretty close. I need more hours of daylight to get better pics.
It's not done because I flubbed the last part, trying to speed through after spending the day with my Dad (losing valuable craft time!) So now I'm ripping apart seams (as you can see), and luckily the fabric wasn't damaged. It's a blessing in disguise because I thought of a way to add another pocket. It's also missing a finished detachable wristlet because I'm deciding between the ribbon or the green fabric. Any thoughts?
I couldn't wait to post it. The charm on the front is a vintage copper pendant someone at burning man gave me because they thought I could use it. 8 years later, I finally did, and I really like it.
Sorry about this being so long - I'm bored with Etsy not around and really excited to actually make something not swap-related for once.
