1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: i need mermaid costume help!!! on: October 16, 2007 10:49:37 AM
so... I just got back to the craftstore with all of the supplies to make this costume.  I wussed out of cutting out all  of those scales individual because joannes had some fabric that looked like green scales already (yay!).  Looks like the whole thing is going to cost underr thirty dollars  Cheesy

Oo, and one more thing... halloween=cold.. anybody have creative cover up that i could make to wear in between parties??  I crochet (better than I sew actually) so I was thinking about making a shawl that looked like sea weed or something, but that sounds kind of gross.  Ideas?

Wow, I was just looking at this pattern yesterday!!! Crazy.  I think I'm just going to get a chap bikini top, so green mesh/tulle/netting and whatever is shiny green and cheap.  I think the thing that really makes that dress is the fact that there's tons of individual scales.  It's also what makes it soo expensive.

FYI, there's way cheaper versions of this costume on e-bay.  They also have this actual costume for as cheap as $60, which is pretty reasobale considering you can sell it again after you wear it.

This is super cute! It looks like a much more practical version of an anthropologie knock-off i made this summer
5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / name and copyright/confusion on: August 10, 2007 12:08:29 PM
So.. I was driving today and the name for my shop just kind of fell out of the sky: Kitsch Couture.  I was excited to say the least, and ran home to google it, only to find that it is already taken by a shop in Saratoga.  (And might I add, i LOVE their clothes) But I still really like the name and it doesn't appear to be copyrighted.  Do you think I could just call  it Kitsch Couture by Kelly???

And an aside... do those of you who own an etsy shop and barely make a profit declare that stuff on your taxes?? I'm not looking to make alot of money.. I'm really just planning on breaking about even, but I also don't plan on going to jail for tax evasion.  Thanks!

OMG those are so cute!! Too bad i don't speak german, lol Wink Maybe etsy will do something like that too.

Thanks for your advice! My biggest concern with etsy is that it is mainly used by crafters who generally use etsy as an inspiration and then make the stuff they see on there themselves instead of actually buying anything.  I don't know if any of you have experience with this, but I have heard several people complain about this before. 

As far as double listing things, I really don't want to pay fees twice, but I am planning on custom making corsets and giving several choices as far as fabric, detail, style, and obviously size and making them to order, so there wouldn't be an issue with accidentally selling the same item to two people.

I LOVE the second one.  The fabric looks very nautical and the scalloped pockets remind me of waves.  Drawing lines on the interfacing as a stitch guide is a really great idea!

I've been toying around with the idea of opening an on-line shop for awhile.  The big question is, etsy or ebay? I think that e-bay reaches a larger demographic, but etsy is more crafter friendly. 

FYI I am definately selling corsets and making wallets/ small bags from the remnants.  I also crochet, and might consider selling scarves in the winter time. 

Is it ok to list an item on ebay AND etsy and see where it sells first???

OMG that is adorable!!! It looks really well done.  I spent a good part of monday going through my fabric stash and making mini card wallets, but they don't really look good yet.  I would love to try one of these, but I don't have any zippers on hand.  As a college student I never carry a purse, because I'm running around so much I would leave it somewhere AND I already have a huge backpack.   

The owl is super cute too!  Cheesy
