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!
