The AOL fitness blog That's Fit http://www.thatsfit.com featured a segment on handmade workout wear, and showcased a couple of my shirts. Bhuri and a 2 screen printers were also featured. The author emailed me yesterday and told me she would be featuring my items so I listed some of my March Minicollection 2007 which had not been on Etsy til now. Just thought I would share my excitement, and feel free to check out my newly listed collection on Etsy, including some really fun jackets and pants.
Hopefully the exposure of handmade clothing on That's Fit! will bring some traffic to designers on Etsy~
Just trying to keep up with custom orders, along with making new designs is a lot of work. I think I'll probably be working overtime because I just got 'spotlighted' on the Talentdatabase's fashion channel. Stop by and check out my portfolio after checking out all the talented designers on this very expansive, amazing site. http://www.talentdatabase.com/channels/8-Fashion
I've been busy with custom orders. I haven't even finished the Peace shirt from the previous post. I have, however, been squeezing in time to work on a pair of skrousers for the Scratch Fashion "Every pant has a story" Contest. Stay tuned, because I will be posting the skrousers videostory here on the blog.
I just realized it's almost September, but with the heat and humidity still in full force, it's hard to imagine making clothes for Fall. The thought of a jacket, while fashionable, just makes me sweat more.
I'm still in light and summery mode. It's hard not to be with the heat advisories reminding us all the global warming isn't going to be a cakewalk.
But that's okay because speaking of sweat, with all the handmade goodness I've been discovering on TalentDatabase, Indiepublic, and Trunkt, sweatshops may well die off!
Some of the talented Etsians over at Etsy banded together to start a street team targeted to and for Vegetarians and Vegans. This is exciting because: 1) There are lots of veg*ns out there who would love to find Etsy 2) One-stop-shopping for eco-friendly products makes the world a better place 3) We can raise awareness for vegetarianism and why we do what we do 4) The name is EtsyVeg - does it get any cuter than that?!
So far we have a gathering of EtsyVeg bloggers HERE. Enjoy and happy cruelty-free shopping!
