I have continued to experiment with my new photography equipment. I finally have come up with something that I like, and I spent last week redoing all my photos in my shop!
I'm very happy with this new style. I've always wanted to evoke a mood when people come to my shop, and ever since I moved my sewing machine to my photo spot that had the best natural lighting, I have struggled to come up with a new style. I feel like I have finally made it! I also have been paying more attention to my non-Etsy site lately, and updated the photos there too.
In pattern news, the more research I've done, the more I realize I need to do before I can release my patterns! I'm currently taking an online course on pattern-making and I'm about to make the plunge and purchase some computer software to help me start. I have no idea how long the actual process will take me. I had nice ideas of releasing my three most popular clutch designs simultaneously, but that may be too ambitious. The nice thing is that people are already asking me to be testers. If you are interested, just let me know and I will add you to the list.
