The 2015 Etsy Holiday Merchandising Guide was released on October 6th, 2015.
Here at Christmas in July we are turning this Holiday Merchandising Guide into Pinterest Gift Guides.
The 80’s, considered one of the most fun eras…brace yourselves, the 80’s are always making a comeback. Can’t wait to see other team members posts in this thread.
Here’s an 80’s item listed for that special “Working Girl”…yes this outfit probably made a commuters trip or two on the ferry. A great outfit for Wall Street in a special shade of green khaki.
This upcycled ring is made from colourful 80s buttons and certainly captures the (sometimes) garish fashion of that decade
Nothing warms the holidays like some kitsch collectible Christmas items from the 80’s are sure to add a cheery nostalgic glow to your home decor this Christmas.
I saw this fabric at my fabric store and love it. The Norwegian Christmas pattern and the polka dots in my favorite color combo. First I want to sew loops, one with polka dots and one with the Christmas pattern. But the ‘Snood’ was the better solution to show the beauty of the pattern. A few days later I stay again in the store after I find out, that this pattern is perfect for a winter skirt.
One of the most fun things about digital design for me is creating repeating seamless patterns. I have lots of digital paper packs in my shop, and lots more started that I have yet to finish on my computer. Sometimes before I get a set finished I have another idea … so, lots to work on at any time. This set is special to me because I learned and used a new way to add or layer flowers or other design randomly to a repeating pattern.
We love the prints and patterns of the traditional Christmas Holidays! This tablecloth features a pattern of Christmas Carolers singing their merry tunes! This pattern was also used on kitchen dish towels and has been featured in many vintage Christmas decor magazines.
I really enjoy reading. I decided to make a few bookmarks for other book lovers out there! I especially love the Japanese patterned paper and so made these bookmarks with this pretty paper. When making these, I thought they would make a lovely gift.
