Packing orders - a joyful job!



The vintage sheet Fat Quarter's are listed in my Etsy Shop and I've been packing lots of orders from near and far around the globe. I cut my pieces as I go, making sure those who wants larger cuts gets what they want. I fold them nicely and wrap them up in silk paper together with business cards and a Thank you postcard with a personal note, and then I put them into bubble wrap envelopes. I try to make them as flat as possible as the shipping cost goes up as soon as your envelope measures 1 inch thick... It can be a balancing act at times.

I label and decorate my envelopes and then I walk down to the post office to ship them all off. When coming back home I fold up my sheets again and put them back into the shelf, waiting for the next orders to come.

It is a time consuming procedure, don't think anything else if you have ever thought of selling fabric, yarn or craft supplies online. But it is a fun procedure. The key is to be prepared with your packing supplies and a great space to make your work smoothly.

I love seeing what colors people chose of my Tilda yarn and Vintage fabrics, what patterns they match together. I love folding the colorful Fat Quarters and wrap it all up. I feel so happy to prepare these orders. It is color therapy, play and work at once. Not to bad of a job in my opinion.

  3. I love it how many effort you take to send a nice package to the people who order products. Can't wait to put my first order for tilda yarn (but I must first finish some other crochet projects before I allow myself to order the yarn for the patterns I already bought ;-)).

  4. Sounds like a great job to me! Much nicer than my job working in front of a computer all day.
