This blogging thing is really working out.
Look at this delicious and super-glorious bag, handmade just for me by Ashley of Dogged Knits:
Oh, I own this bag. It's mine. Can you believe it?
It's got the perfect innards -- pretty blue and perfect pockets. (Pretty Blue and Perfect Pockets are best-sellers in my line of dolls for young girls. They're adorable.) This is some serious quality, dudes. Ashley is not kidding around.
And it's soft and beautiful and look at that fabric!
The best part? It was part of a swap! She asked if I'd make her a card like this one, and she offered to make me something in return.
I'd never done a swap before, and I didn't want to blow it by sending one little card in exchange for one big bag. Since it was impossible to find a currency conversion chart for handmade cards to handmade bags, we just did our best. I made her a little handful of cards featuring pigeons, and she made me the bag to replace this foolishness.
So here's the audience participation portion of this post:
At one point Ashley suggested that my Pidge for All Seasons card collection (Get Well, Congratulations, Happy Birthday, and blank inside pidge) might be reason enough to start an Etsy shop. For those with Etsy experience, what say you about this? For those of you who would buy something from Etsy, what do you think? If I started an Etsy shop, which of my things would people be interested in buying? Handmade cards? Embroidered items? Sewn things? Anything?
Also? Please give Ashley her well-deserved props! I lovelovelove my bag!
