After months of dreaming and hoping, I finally got the courage to open an Etsy shop.
It’s a huge leap for me. Just last November, my Mom was laughing at the fact that I couldn’t figure out how to thread my Singer. She forced me to sew a dishcloth after Thanksgiving dinner. I owe it all to her for getting me started, seriously.
I now really enjoy sewing. In fact, I regularly find myself in stores telling myself that I can totally make this (in way cuter fabrics). It’s pretty fun when I actually make that happen too!
When we first got Millie, I brought her to the groomer for a bath and nail trim. They offered us a bandanna, and I just loved how cute it was on her! I had to make her MORE.
As you can see, these don’t tie on. Rather, they loop through the collar. These can’t fall off of your pup!
Millie now owns about 10 bandannas. What can I say? I love the way she looks in them!
After a few months of working on these for her, I looked to Etsy to see if they had reversible versions. I could have poor Etsy searching skills, but I was happy to see that there weren’t any out there!
I’ve had so much fun making these, and there was no doubt in my mind that these would be the product of my Etsy shop debut.
Keeping up with the whole “nifty” theme, I got some great help from my friends to help me name my new little shop.
Forgive my lack of GIMP skills. This is all I can really do. I like it though…simple like my blogs.
So, without further ado, check out my first product, The Nifty Woof!!
These come in three sizes: Small, Medium and Large.
I also have a few fun print Nifty Woofs in my Etsy shop. More of those will be coming up soon, but I really wanted to make some holiday ones first.
Of course I wouldn’t just put you through this long post without a giveaway, right? To celebrate the debut of my shop, I’m offering one reader a free “Nifty Woof” of their choice!
