The description doesn't include much. Needs a bit more description wise

Re: Etsy

cute baby! I think your second pic should be the main one. You can see it in two colors and more of the details

Re: Etsy

I buy WAY more diapers from hyenacart than from etsy. But I tend to buy lots of other stuff from etsy. I JUST convo'd someone to do a custom order on two fitteds and a cover on etsy...first diaper stuff I've ever bought from there (in comparison to a couple of dozen diapers from hyenacart).

Re: Etsy

I don't prefer Etsy, but if I love a product I will buy it. I love action shots of things I buy too, but not the exact item I am going to buy. Buy a white board from Wal-mart or wherever and take your pictures on it in natural light- your product will look 100% better. And is this a custom slot? What size are the hats?

Custom listing for adorable owl hat with ear flaps
Handwash, lay flat to dry.
Sizes available: Infant, Toddler, Child, Teen
Convo to change colors or yarn content.

Or if they are already made:

This little owl hat has been hand crocheted using a soft acrylic yarn.
Perfect for photoprops, baby shower gifts or just to keep your little one warm!

You could also offer a hat or two to a photographer to keep for props so you can get professional photos of your items to put on etsy, like a trade.

Re: Etsy

I buy a lot of stuff from Etsy.

I think hyenacart is great too, but Etsy may reach a larger market (IMO).
I have not officially opened up shop yet but have a hyena cart AND an etsy all ready to go
