how we came up with our name - why knotsewcute?

Original Etsy Banner
When Tara and I started our Etsy business, just over 4 years ago, we found that the most challenging part was coming up with an original name. When we researched names on the Internet we were overwhelmed by the massive volume of Internet and Etsy businesses. Every creative, whimsical name that Tara and I could think of was already taken in some form or another so, in order to come up with something original we jokingly said that we will have to call our shop “Not So Cute”. After a bit of a chuckle, we switched up the spelling and that's the name that just seemed to stick.

Current Etsy Banner

Over the years we have changed our banner, and we currently have plans for a new banner in the works but we'll always be known as "knotsewcute design shop" :)

  1. I love the name of your shop! So original! I think it is not only good to have fun with your name but something fun is good as people will always remember you!


    1. Thanks! It's a great name for etsy as the internet is visual, but it is a little awkward when you are in a yarn shop and they ask you what your business name is. You should see the look on their faces when you say "knotsewcute" :) As soon as you hand over your business card and they see it written out they love it!
