I've been prepping for the show next month like crazy! Today I worked on getting my price tag markers made. These are from wood disks, clothes pins and chalk board paint! I glued down the disks on the clothes pins and then did 3-4 coats of chalk board paint on them, easy.
Also finished my little earring studs! I have a limited quantity of these, thought I had more studs on hand but didn't, boo. It's ok though, these turned out cute!
I still have to finish up about 6 more monsters on my sewing desk and measure out the dog collars I have in my crate. Will be working on coptic bound journals this week and still need to get my zine's copied. Getting things done and I think I will be really prepared by the craft show on March 23rd!
If you run an shop, online or storefront, it's great to keep track of your social media stats! I tend to glance at mine daily and keep track of these in a little notebook. I wanted a better way to track them so I whipped up a little booklet printable and thought I would share it with you guys!
Instructions (this makes two booklets):
Cover: Print out 1 copy on card stock or printer paper
Sheets: Print out 5 copies double sided (my printer doesn't do double sides so I ran it through a second time reversed)
Fold in half and you can run them through a sewing machine, hand stitch or staple... or leave loose!
With a paper cutter or a steady hand, cut your sheets in half like the image below.
Out of frustration with a fleece monster design I drafted up, I could not get it sewn up the way I had imagined.... then had a mini craft mental breakdown... the Eep was born! I had forgot I had a huge box of fake furs so I decided to play around with it and some fabric, then fell madly in love with this new monster design!
I did a mini shop update with these guys in it yesterday and sold out, but I plan to make more for sure after the craft show next month and will try to get a couple more in the shop before then (waiting on my fur order to arrive next week).
If you would like to get quicker shop updates and just daily adventures, please follow me on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/milkyrobot
These little guys come in two sizes: Mini and Large. Each Eep features high quality fake fur and 100% cotton fabric. They adorn my signature flower eyes just like my amigurumi monsters as well!
