Yesterday after filling in my policies and listing an item on etsy I decided that before I went to bed I would open my shop. Even though I had only one listing so far. Imagine my surprise this morning when I had a look at my shop and realise it wasn't showing any items. I was a bit panicked as I thought my listing hadn't been saved! and I would have to do it again.....well it gradually dawned on me that someone had brought it!!
and there it was in the sold items!..... and yes a very happy and encouraging surprise for me!
So exciting! so I bounced of happily to the post office ready to tell all and sundry, and to send it off on it's journey across the Atlantic!
I just love the combination of colours in this cushion cover and really enjoyed making this. I loved it so much that I actually made another identical one straight after! I still need to make the cover for it and sew the pieces together. So I may re-list this again as a custom order.
Setting up etsy was fairly straight forward, with a paypal account already set up. I was slightly out on the postage, I forgot to add the weight of the packaging! but I think I've done everything I said I would. So hurray for etsy, I'm so pleased!
I have enthusiastically begun another! but I really need to get down to sewing and attaching covers......it's the not quite so much fun bit, although it's very satisfying to see the finished item.
Here is a picture of my next finished cushion, ready to list on etsy. It's a very colourful holly hobby style patchwork cushion.
Likely to add a bust of colour to any corner, I think it would probably be quite good fun in a caravan or children's bedroom. What do you think?.... we are going to need some colourful makes in our lives soon for sure. I have been dodging the rain all day! and now must prise the dog from her blanket again, I hope you all have a good start to the week!
