Artist Highlight: Mrs. Crafty Pants

Today I want to introduce Kassandra from Mrs. Crafty Pants Designs.  Her interview is filled with great advice for Etsy shop owners and she's offering A Girl and Her Scout readers an exclusive 20% off coupon code to her shop!  Scroll to the bottom to get the code, but don't forget to read everything in between :)


What first drew you to to sewing accessories? I needed a cute headband for an outfit. I was doing a headband challenge that a blog I follow hosted. The challenge was to wear a headband everyday for a week, regardless of what you had on. So I needed a headband like I said, and I had a rosette fabric flower in my stash from an earlier project. I got that and an elastic headband, and hot glued the flower on there. It turned into this instant love, and I started making others with different techniques and types of flowers. 



What advice would you give to aspiring artists and Etsy shop owners? M
y advice is first do what you love. If you don't love something, you'll hate making different ones all the time. Also, take great photos. The camera isn't as big as the photograph, for instance I have good photos and they're taken with my android! I've gotten a lot of compliments on my photos. List or renew items daily or every couple of hours to keep you at the top. Also, join Etsy teams so you can connect and make new friends. It's a great way to get advice and help.
