They are easy to sew and keep your feet and legs toasty. For those of us stuck in Winter, this is good.
I will add mens and childrens sizes to my shop soon. This womens one is a freebie.

Having a new shop on Etsy reminds me of how hard it is to be new. Making connections, hoping to get noticed, creating a shop full of new items including photos and descriptions. I have fresh empathy for fresh shops on Etsy. I spent a little time using pounce to see who else was new. There is really just one tip that came to mind for brand new shops: open with at least 5 items. Take the time and effort to make the first photos of those 5 items spectacular. Make it clear in the photo what the item is. Yes, that is really one tip. The treasury below was on the front page last night. Many thanks to BatesMercantileCo who was one of my very first connections in my new shop. Having one of my vintage pieces on Etsy's landing page reminds me that I have more vintage clothing to list. The sun is shining this morning, so a photo shoot may be in order.

Just wanted to send a message and let you know that I finally just completed the eye glass case from your pattern. Oh my god, it is so cute... It was so easy to do and I needed that today...It's been one of those sewing days and decided to try your pattern and I'm so glad I did! You and your patterns are awesome! Can't wait to make more and list them. Here is a photo she sent me. Is this cute, or what?
BrandybuckClothiers, with life. Rather than waiting to schedule with a model, I decided to go for it. It is a small item checked off of a long list, but every check mark counts. Stepping into selling my clothing designs feels like a leap. For me, it is the next logical leap.

Jen, the owner of Walrustusk is a talented beading artist and the most treasury making woman on Etsy. I started following her treasuries using the circles feature on Etsy. With circles, you see what people are adding to their favorites and what treasuries they make. It is different than adding someone to your favorites. I also added Jen to my faves because I want to see her new items as they come out. Thanks for the front page feature Jen, it was a nice little boost for my new pattern and sold some mitts too. I appreciate you for all the work you put in to promoting your fellow sellers through your beautiful collections. See all of Jen's treasuries here. And see her beadwork here.

I want to be there, sunken in those sumptuous fabrics, and feel naked in my minimalist accessories. Hope you enjoy. 2 weeks to launch my fashion line. Getting excited to show you.
