My first complete project!
I recently finished my first complete spinning project! I sheared and clipped the sheep and rabbit. Then I processed the fibers. Then I spun the yarn with a drop spindle. Then I crocheted it into an adorable capelet! You can see my item for sale on my web site TheModestMaiden.etsy.com.

Sorry, my computer is acting up and I can't seem to get the picture attached. Thank you.

Great job on all your items. I've been thinking about opening up an easy shop. I sew & quilt. What sells best? It seems people never give hand knits the value they deserve.

Well I hope you do start an etsy shop. It is allot of fun and allot of people make good money with it. I have only been open for a month and I have made two sales, one was an Old English style dress and the other was for a pair of denim Culottes. I am not sure what sells best, but I know clothing is a big market on etsy, esspecially unique/custom stuff (something they may not find elsewhere). My sister has a quilt on her shop and it has not sold yet (been up there for three months I think), and my other sister has a few bath and body products and she is trying to get into candy too (that is also a big etsy market). She told me when I first got my shop that you can count on most of your sales being between Oct. and Jan. (christmas).

I am trying to add a branch to just clothing by selling quilted wall art. I have one up so far to see how well they might do. I make them from art that a friend of mine does so it is totally one of a kind and unique. I also make pin cushions and all sorts of other trinkets like that, I think it is best to have a theme to your shop and still have a little variety so you strike different crowds.

There are now several items on my website that I have included in my two week, 10% off sale (the capelet is one of them).
