The Lotus Rose

Supplies are the best selling items on Etsy. Supply shops have the most sales on Etsy. I sell more fabric squares (supplies) in sosovintage than anything else. I wonder why it's taken me so long to realize I should offer some sort of supply in sosorosey?
I have been working hard to create a flower applique that suits my shop aesthetic; something classic, elegant, and simple. A flower you'd want to add to a pillow or tote bag to make it extra special. One you'd want to wear on a shoulder strap or headband.
I chose to work in natural cotton string for its unique look and texture. It's interesting without being overpowering. Adding a vintage button in the center will ensure that every one that I make will be a one-of-a-kind treasure. This is the first of what I hope will be many. What do you think?

You've done it Jennie.
Classic elegance. What a beautiful piece! Yes, I love it. Different, original and so you :)

Yay, you used a vintage button too! We are cut from the same sheet--I'm convinced. Like all your work, the flower is lovely. Simple, understated elegance. I haven't been doing well on Etsy lately at all. But as you know I've been crocheting a bit more and have been gradually items to my store. I hope things improve--it's always such a boost!

What is your hot seller item? Is it your bowls/baskets--especially at Easter? Curious. I don't have a hot seller! But I did sell about three pumpkin hats last September.
