Finally (finally!) getting my stack of sewn bits photographed and into the shop.

It’s far more work than you might imagine to take shop-worthy pictures. Because my customers can’t touch and see my creations with their own eyes & hands, it’s so important. I’m learning….. figuring out the difference between what I like and what catches the potential customers eye. Separating my shop eye from my everyday eye…. if that makes sense?

I’ve been sewing up the kiddo bags in lots of four. So four bags of each color. This means less photographs! This is a good thing. I just listed six new colors. Swooning over the feather & fox ones myself and my little guy suggested the vikings and robots.

Adult-sized totes for the minimalist! Simple design. Solid linen back & cotton or linen print front. Padded quilted strap. Key/pen loop. The bag has a layer of flannel sandwiched inside for extra durability and weight. These are perfect for holding journal supplies, a few books & magazines, lunch, knitting projects, and more……

Two new silk colors. A lovely spring green and winter sky blue. Both in the large 35×35 inch size. They make awesome nature table cloths, dress up, capes, and more. The blue one is my favorite! It’s totally inspired by snowy winter nights. These are both limited colors dyed in OOAK small batches, like all my multi-color silks. I’m always open for color suggestions too! They really are so fun to dye up.

Lastly, I’m thinking of getting a few prints done again. Notecards. I’m down to my last ten of these. I think I want cards that actually open next time instead of post cards. Any thoughts? Small-ish ones? What size do you seem to use the most? Big enough to mail? Small to tuck in with gifts? I’m sort of hooked on a wildflower theme……. tell me what you think. I so love input from you all!

Happy Monday~~
xo,

  1. OOoh! I love the Vikings (of course!). I love your postcards, but they are so lovely, I don’t want to put them directly in the mail. So regular-smallish folding cards would be great. I say smallish because bigger ones make me so intimidated to fill them up. And I just don’t have that time right now. But everything is definitely swoon in your shop! Yay for beautiful photos. You bet it makes such a difference! OOH and I love the strap on the bags. The fox looks like a fun surprise!

  2. LOVE all the bags! I sense a birthday present to myself coming up. 🙂
    I vote smallish on the folded cards — thank-you note size.

  3. I’m spending way too much time thinking about the linen one with the feathers on it!
    I know what you mean about it being hard to take photos for listings though. Back when Blaine has a shop going regularly that was my job. Jewelry is hard!

  4. Thank you! It always feels good to get them listed in the shop. And thank you for the card input…… that is really so helpful. I think I'm going to get some thank you note ones and maybe some tiny gift cards too!

  5. Those feathers are so good! I love them. I have them in almost every color and stocked up because I know I'll use them in so many different projects. Such a lover of AMH for sure! I can't even imagine jewelry!

  6. Beautiful! I just bought one of your blue silks & a red one for my littlest guy who just turned 3. He has 5 older siblings and all of our older silks are tearing.
    Blessings.
