I am pleased to have established a few really good local outlets for my crochet creations, and am now in a position where I need to replace some items that have been sold in order to replenish their stock. So what is selling well?
First and foremost are Bertie baby blankets:
Followed by a Ripple blanket:
The Circles cushion cover:
A fold-away bag:
And last but not least some jellyfish!
It is all rather small scale (and intentionally so) but it is lovely to know that there are people out there who appreciate my work, and nice to feel that my crochet has a purpose.
No wonder they’re popular – they’re all wonderful! I only sell sewn items as I would have to sell my crochet things at a profit of about 50p per hour to price them at an amount people are willing to pay!
I know what you mean – it is more about funding my yarn purchases than earning an income, and I won’t be giving up the day job any time soon!
Of course people are interested in your crochet, it’s lovely!
Thank you Keira – I must have been taught well!
Really well done. I was thinking about doing the same. I have enough crochet in the house(well enough for my husband) but still feel to need to crochet every night!
That’s about it really – I feel the need to crochet so I also need an outlet for what I produce.
I know it’s cheeky but what size baby blanket do you make?
Not cheeky at all. The ripple blankets are 56 x 77cm, and the Bertie blankets are 54 x 71cm.
The ripple blankets use 6 x 50g balls of Sirdar Simply recycled acrylic/cotton dk (discontinued!)
and the Bertie blankets use 8 x 50g of Rico baby classic dk.
Hope this helps….
Thank you for sharing! It is nice to know when we crochet it is enjoyed by others! I really enjoy your posts! Thank you!!!
Thank you Sandra – do you crochet too?
