Indeed I do! I’d not thought of making bows before but in making my fairy kei outfit I was like I WANNA MAKE BOWS. I have quite the fabric collection and it seemed like a fun way to use bits of it. I’d be happy to sell them to people who want to buy them!.
I made that batch you saw for AnimeUSA but any stock that doesn’t sell will be online for sale. I’ll most likely try and set up my unused StoreEnvy for that, as then it’ll save me money in fees (you can use credit card or paypal and you do not need a Storenvy account to buy things off the site). My Etsy is more for my plush not accessories anyway.
I’ll of course advertise anything for sale here on my tumblr - it will not go missed. :)
Just been super busy working. As you know I am selling at AnimeUSA October 3rd weekend. I have been cutting and sewing main parts, leaving stuffing and hand sewing finishing work to do while I am visiting my friend aliceapproved all next week. :D
I will make creatures for online selling all winter though as I have no cons I am selling at again till spring, plus I am selling at maybe just 2 cons next year and plan to do a lot more online focus as well. I want to make some new designs too!

I have bigger and smaller bags, yea. I think presentation and packaging is very important, not to mention sending my cuties into the world safely.
I use my custom stamp on the large bags for big/expensive plush, which are the standard size plain paper gift bags you see at craft stores. It’s actually very cost effective to buy the 13-packs there with a 40-50% coupon (with a 40% they are $4.20 for the pack, so 33 cents a bag, it is the same price per bag as buying online under like 50 bags, due to shipping).
I also have some cute lil plastic bags (with handle holes) for smaller items. I got mine on etsy. On etsy and ebay people sell various packs (25, 50, or 100) of plastic bags. On etsy I searched plastic bag with handles. Plastic bags are WAY more cost effective, but I like the protection of the paper shopping bag for the more delicate/large plush.
I also have some organza bags I use for antlers, or when someone want’s a small-midsize something gift wrapped. You can buy them in larger sizes online. Mine came out to 54 cents a bag for 6x9” size.
There are many other shapes and sizes of packaing out there too!

Aw yea! Like anything that doesn’t sell will go up online for sale. Also if people are buying them I will make more to sell for sure. I know hair accessories are a huge market, as in I’d get lost in the crowd on etsy, but the fairy kei/decora market is a lot more specialized and a smaller pool, so that’s good. (I’ll PM you about selling you a green bow btw <3 I’d not mind to make another.)
