My cousin's wife had a baby on Christmas Eve, and of course the new addition to the family needed a new shirt! I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to use my cleverly disguised giraffe design. But I can't just stop at one shirt...noooo....that would be too easy! I made the exact same shirt for Cobblestone Park, and naturally, one for Skoober too.
Pattern: Ottobre 2/05
Embroidery: Urban Threads
Fabric: Cotton Lycra from Bamblue Fabrics (of course!)
On a related note, I just cannot stand my pictures. I look at Etsy and there is a clear divide between those who have good pictures and those who have terrible pictures. Obviously, the former are the ones getting all the sales. But I have a couple of things working against me: 1) I live in a house that is totally shaded by trees. Natural light does not exist in this house, particularly on gray, drizzly days like today. 2) I am not a photographer, nor do I have a fancy camera. 3) I think pictures on real live kids look the best, but the models at my disposal (my kiddos) do not like to model. So what to do? Enroll in a photography class? That would help one problem, but not the others.
I'm still pondering this. Suggestions? How does everyone else get such professional looking pictures on Etsy?
