Do you crochet/craft for others? Do you get orders, requests, or have a store? Crocheting takes a lot of time, and I have trouble pricing out my pieces. Any tips, for those aspiring entrepreneurs out there? For those who crochet/craft for others (out of the goodness in their heart), what do you do about particular people? Someone who wants it a specific style, shape, color, etc. I’d love to hear your experiences and any advice you have learned from crafting for others. Please share!
I have gotten a few commissions lately, and have been working hard to get them completed. All of the requests have been bags/purses and I feel like I’m beginning to find my niche in crochet. I love making purses, the projects can be as intricate as you want or as simple as you want. Plus, if your outfit isn’t flashy, a purse can bring some flair. I am all about dressing simply and adding spice with the accessory.
My boho bag has been very popular. I have two ready for delivery and one halfway done. The lining went easier, but is still very time consuming.
I am also continuing my love affair with freeform. I am in the process of making an evening bag for my mom. It is working up much faster than the first bag, hopefully I’ll have a finished purse by next week.
Like I said, I would love to hear about your experiences when crocheting/crafting for others. Have a great rest of the week and Happy Crocheting!
