So, I went and did it. I took the plunge, and, like about a bazillion other people, I opened a shop on Etsy where I will be selling my cross-stitch patterns in downloadable PDF format. You can find my shop at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/RabbitGirlCrafts
I spent this past weekend trying to take some halfway decent photos of my two finished models. Photography is not my strong suit, as you know! I was going to wait until this next weekend to pull together all the information I needed to open the shop, but last night I decided to stop wavering and just dive in.
I think of this as Rabbit Girl Crafts v1.0. I will continue to improve it as I grow more comfortable with the Etsy interface and learn and grow both as a designer and a microbusiness owner.
Right now I have two patterns listed. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you are already familiar with these two projects!
First up, we have “The Raven and the Writing Desk,” my Alice in Wonderland, Mad Hatter-inspired cross-stitch pattern:
Second, is my contemporary faith-inspired cross-stitch pattern, “Let go and let God”:
Both are priced at $6.00, but if you place an order before June 30, 2016, please use code: LETGO to get 20% off.
You can visit the shop here to check it out: https://www.etsy.com/shop/RabbitGirlCrafts
I will add a link to the shop in the menu of the website soon (maybe as soon as I finish writing this!), and I may do some other sprucing up around here, too.
So, that is my update for “Work in Progress Wednesday”! Next week I hope I can share a finish on “Anhinga Blues” and maybe a couple new starts, including the Alice in Wonderland White Rabbit-inspired pattern I’ve been working on. I have finally completed a working draft, and I have printed out the pattern. Now I’ve got to kit it up and start stitching!
Thanks as always for reading. Thank you for all your comments and encouragement in this stitching journey!
Hi, Alice. A mutual friend told me about your blog, so I had to come visit. Kudos to you for not only opening and Etsy shop, but also designing your own patterns. They are wonderful! I look forward to following your journey.
