If you sell wearable products (and especially if you sell online) you probably hear customers saying “I don’t know what I have in my closet that will go with your work.”
Or they just aren’t sure how your sculpture, mug, or painting will look in their house. Without a shadow of a doubt you know that it will be good… but without awkwardly showing up at their house one day to prove it to them, you’re not sure what to do.
My clients loved when I started creating full outfits based on my designs. It helped them to see a look come together and made it much easier for them to picture it in their closet (then pull out their credit card).
You can do the same thing. If you make clothing or accessories, you can create something like the image above. And if you create sculptures, housewares, or art that hangs on the walls, you can create rooms featuring their work.
I use a site called Polyvore to create all of these images. It’s super easy and user friendly. Sign up for your free account and get started.
Want to go deeper? Inside pinterest perfect I walk you through creating your pins, and help you uncover what your customer is looking for.My creative practice is far from the traditional weaver. When warping the loom I never count the ends, I just go until I feel that it's time to stop. I don't follow patterns, I allow and sometimes encourage the yarn to move as it wraps around the front beam. If a string breaks, I work it into the piece. I create from my soul. I speak to the yarn as we weave together, striving to create the perfect connection, and when we become in sync a fabulous scarf, full of honesty, joy, and personality emerges.
