My next big art event is coming up this Saturday when I participate in the Yorktown Art Stroll. I have been working steadily to build up my inventory of Free Lace Scarves to have enough to display and to put up in our Etsy store soon.
I love working on these scarves. In the design phase I revel in the mix of colors and textures of the fabrics and yarns that I use. During the machine-stitching phase, I enjoy thinking about what colors I want to use next or about other projects in progress or planned. The stitching is repetitive enough that I can use the free space in my mind to puzzle out any issues I am dealing with.
This week I have been puzzling out what product descriptors I will use when I put my scarves on Etsy. I have always called them "Free Lace." It's the term used by the instruction book I bought so many years ago. Lately, though, I have been wondering if that is the best term to use. If I use the term in a search in Etsy, Instagram, Google, etc., all I ever come up with are knitted or crocheted scarves. I wonder if that is a problem, or is it an asset that mine are so different.
I am having trouble thinking of alternate descriptors. One I came up with is Confetti Scarves. If I Google that, the scarves I see are somewhat similar to mine - at least the ones I make with small fabric shapes, but many of mine are made with yarns or ribbons. The term doesn't see to me to fit those scarves well. If I search for Ribbon Scarves, I don't come up with anything like mine.
I could use some help coming up with some good search terms for them. Here are some pictures of some of the scarves.
What descriptor terms could you suggest for these??
