Haven't posted an update in a while! Firstly
for those who don't know yet, my beanie kits are up on etsy! www.etsy.com/listing/253539569…
I'm trying to stock up on some ready-made kits so they can be shipped off quickly for those who'd like to make them as christmas presents!Secondly
I've been thinking about Patreon more lately, and I think once I have a little more time I'm planning to set one up. (probably around January) It's main focus will be on patterns for sale as well as tutorials and other useful tidbits. Patrons will get to choose what characters I release next and higher amount patrons (probably about $5-10) will get the patterns I release each month. I'll probably release embroidery files as well for the beanie kits. Everything I release on Patreon will be for sale on etsy afterward, so no worries there. It's more for people who'd like to commit to a 'monthly subscription' of a sort (and have a hand in choosing what I make next) rather than buy things singularly on etsy later. This is also in part a way to make me more productive. I'm hoping that having a deadline each month as well as people watching my updates daily will force me to focus more and be more accountable for what I do each day.
I'm certainly curious to hear any comments or concerns on the Patreon idea! If you have any suggestions too I'd love to hear them.Thirdly
I'm thinking of selling patterns and kits for a full size pony plush pattern! It'd probably be around 10-11 inches tall and made to be cute but simple to sew. Kits would come with embroidery already done, patterns, and enough minky to make the plush. Along with this, I'm considering ordering bulk minky from the manufacturer (shannon). This means I'll be selling minky too if you'd want to buy from me directly. It'd be around $700 to get the first order of the main 7 colors....so probably not something I'll do too soon though, haha.
