It may have been a few years since I sold my wares on Etsy, but one thing that hasn’t changed is my adoration for the Etsy blog. I love the community they cultivate and the processes they share. Even though selling with Etsy wasn’t the best fit for my shop, I’m still able to appreciate other areas of their website — like the inspiring words that fill my screen when I’m on their blog, reading along with a [by now] lukewarm cup of coffee in hand.
A few years ago I found this video featuring one of their sellers, Spruce Home, and their upholstery process. Seriously, I fell in love with the video. Since watching it for the first time I’ve gone back to it over a dozen times. I love watching the process of something, especially something sewn. Fabrics and hard work and creating beauty — these things catch my attention.
Is there a handmade process that catches your attention? I’d love for you to share a link below. xo
PS. we’re still looking for 2 Assistant Seamstresses, perhaps you know someone you could send our way?
That was such a great video! Thanks for sharing. I love to see process shots and videos of pretty much any kind of crafting or handmade business.
@Jill from Le Petit Hoot, me too! If a blog existed with that kind of content I’d be in biiiiiiig trouble!
Thanks for sharing! Fun video to watch! I’ve wanted to learn more about reupholstering some of the pieces in my collection (I can do the woodwork part just fine…but am scared to try the rest of it…).
That video is great! I just met Amanda Brown at ALT SF and she is so sweet. The work they do is so fascinating. Thanks for sharing.
@Jessica Angel, LUCKY ♥
Thanks for sharing! I’ve always wanted to learn how to reupholster and have two ripped armchairs waiting to be redone so I love watching the process.
@haley, I bet you could figure out how to do your chair just by watching the video a dozen times ;)
I have recovered a few seat bottoms on chairs but would love to learn how to do something more advanced!! BTW I just ordered my first Gussy tote!! Can’t wait to see it! :)
@Kristin Smith, yeowwwwww! Thank you, Kristin♥♥
Thank you!! :) I think it will be perfect to carry my Macbook Air when I go to Allume in October!! :)
I have always loved watching clothing being put together! From all of the pieces being cut to the final product!
@Sarah, Yes, stay tuned then because I have a fabulous video just for you! :)
This video is so inspiring! Thank you for sharing.
I saw this awhile ago too and I LOVE it! :) I love to see things taken apart and put back together, and I have a huge love for making old things new again!! :)
