Product Update

This past November I put my shops on vacation to prepare for the upcoming Stitch Market. Once the Stitch market was over I decided to close my shops down permanently. Etsy just wasn't the right fit for me and was becoming more of a task than anything to list items. After researching, rebranding, and getting in the groove of making things again I have decided to relaunch this summer. I've looked around for other shop options and have narrowed it down to a few, but the big reveal will have to wait a few more months. I am also currently working on a landing page that will direct you either to my shop or blog, which will be a part of the big reveal. 

The reason for the closing of my shops and the rebranding of everything was mostly that I had evolved from where I started. Much like my blog The Little Willow Tree, my two Etsy shops were starting to merge into one brand and I needed a change that reflected more of where I am now and where I plan to go. After the Stitch Market was over I finally found the direction I needed to be in and changed the name of everything to Chevron Stitches. But because I flew right out the gate with every name I've have and every product I've made in the past, I wanted to take some time in reopening a shop and introducing product that is unique to me and is for everyone. 

Currently I am in the process of getting business cards, labels, stamps, and packaging made to fit the Chevron Stitches name. I am pretty excited about them and cannot wait to share in the big reveal. I am also currently rebuilding stock for the Spring Stitch Market that will be happening in the next few months. Though I am not guaranteed a spot in the market, I am keeping my fingers crossed and making sure I am fully prepared by the time my application is accepted so I can avoid cramming over 200 items in a four day period like last time {where the time went last year I do not know!}. 

The past week I have been working on building up stock for the market and thought I would give you all an update on what I've made so far. 


One of my most popular sales at the market were these mustache and bow tie appliqued onesies


Not a huge seller, but still popular, paci/toy clips

I'm going to be sitting down and making some more items today that involve Melody Miller and Etsuko Furuya fabric and zippers....

Keep your fingers crossed for me that I get accepted to do the Spring Stitch Market! Thanks!
