Both pieces are fabric.

I finally got my act together and made a bathroom curtain using this chain link fence and butterfly fabric.

Lost mitten: Congrats on getting to 1000 sales... I just checked and you're at 1002!

Beag: I hope you're feeling better (I saw your Etsy shop announcement).

As far as the wholesale question, I only wholesale certain products that are priced so that I can still make enough money to feel satisfied with the sale. Certain products just don't work for me. Stores have been pretty understanding about this.

Well here is a little Etsy vs. Big Cartel comparison. I listed my new mod butterfly fabric at the same time on both Etsy and Big Cartel. The big cartel listing has received 26 views but the etsy listing has only received 9. I should mention though that all of my promoting efforts are now aimed at big cartel and not etsy so that might make the difference. Also, I seem to get more buys per view on etsy than on big cartel. Hope this info helps Hollylynne!

I'm a little worried about the holiday season this year. Hopefully, by then, the economy will be turning around.  I just contacted a bunch of retail shops about carrying Sew Bettie products -  I heard a lot of we love your stuff but our shop is so full right now. Ugh. If we can keep our shops open during this tough time though, it will only get better!

I haven't posted here in forever. Refab - congrats on the interview and 78 sales! That is absolutely amazing. I also have a new shop on big cartel and direct most of my promoting efforts that way. I am on the 19.99 plan because it allows you to have more custom pages (e.g. about, press, wholesale, newsletter sign up etc). I am going to stay on etsy though just because I am still getting a few sales there a week and it is a great base of customers. Plus, I really like the community on etsy. The big difference with big cartel is that it is really just a webhosting service that makes setting up a shop easy.

Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it. Which page loaded really slow?

A lot of surface designers find licensing agreements at surtex (http://www.surtex.com/). It is super expensive to have a booth but it seems like the best way to find companies that want to manufacture your designs. I've never been but it comes up in a lot of interviews of successful designers as the place where they got their start.

That is an amazing idea to use ink blockers even for one color. I put on a ton of ink and it ended up just smushing all over the place. I will definitely give that a try next time I print. I printed on wool felt. I also tried on quilitng weight cotton, which worked a little better. But, I want to use wool felt for this design since I'm going to make him (aka Kevin the Monster) into a softie.

I printed again today and used more ink than yesterday. His back definitely turned out better than his front.

check out bigcartel.com. it lets you make your own website really easily. google pages are another option, which is free. you can buy your own domain name and link to your google pages. I used to do that. good luck!
