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.

Crochet Boho Bag with Fringe and adjustable strap, cotton festival bag, big button closure, purse.
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!
