A few posts ago I had talked about working on some new things for my little shop. I've been toying with the idea of selling appliques/iron-on's for a while and was finally able to work on some this week. The thing that I've been debating is selling just the applique or the whole kit and caboodle. I'm leaning towards just the applique's. I mean there's a gazillion people on etsy who sell them on onesies, etc.,. so if that's what you really wanted, you could find it there. Plus, I just don't have the time and I think people tend to feel more empowered when they can do it themselves. I know, it's just ironing it on, but still, it's your own little creation and you get to say you made it! By just selling the applique, it allows you to iron it on to anything you wanted. You wouldn't be limited to a piece of clothing. You could iron it to a book bag, or....whatever. I'm drawing a blank here people.
I've come up with 6 girl and 6 boy designs. I'm thinking of selling them in a kit where you would get all 6 (of either gender) or if you wanted to buy the girl and boy ones, there'd be a separate kit for that.
The ones that I made were applique'd to onesies (for the upcoming arrival of the wee one) and t-shirts for Sir Henry. Although they are iron-on's I sewed along the edges just because I don't like the look of the raw edge. Oh and I'd include buttons. Don't you think I should include the buttons??
People have been asking what I've been making for this upcoming baby and truth be told, your looking at it. I've got zip, zilch, zero. We have no name picked out. I've hardly done any shopping. I just keep telling myself, 'she just needs diapers and a few clothes!' LOL. I've got 8 weeks to pull my head out. More on that later.
Oh and thanks for all the 'curves' advice... I think I know what I'm going to do now...more on that later, too. It's getting too late for this lady : )
