My website and Folksy shops have been a bit low on stock lately. The problem is (well, it's not really a problem!) is that when I make a bag and post on my Facebook page it either i) sells straight away of ii) results in a custom order. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about either, but it does mean I find it hard to produce new stock for my shop. So I'm trying a new strategy. Each time I make a custom order, I make one or two bags in the same style which can go into my stock for sale.
So when I had two customers who both wanted one of these dragonfly messenger bags, I figured I may as well make 3.
I'm now trying to finish a custom order for this grey cat themed bag, so have another two on the go at the same time.
Hopefully this will mean I can build up some ready-for-sale stock.
I also took the opportunity of having 3 bags on the go to take some pictures for a blog post on how to change a boring zipper pull for something a bit more exciting. Would anyone find this useful for next weeks handmade Monday blogpost?
