clown fish

I have been thinking for a long time about making crochet items and selling them, but I want to find something that is unique. The inspiration came when my mother-in-law was opening up her new business and I wanted to see about making some puppets for her. I then made a variety of them including a ladybug, a monster, and a clown fish. I had a ton of fun making them and then continued to make other crochet projects for family and friends.

One day in early November, I decided to post to my Facebook friends about whether I should start a business making crochet toys, the response was very supportive and amazing but was still a little hesitant about the commitment since I am already working a full-time job and I have a family to take care of as well.

I did not do much crocheting in January but the thought of selling crochet items has still been on my mind. I am an experienced crocheter, however, I am still a beginner at making my own patterns and I am not a very “visual” person so making my own patterns is a little bit of a challenge, but who doesn’t love a good challenge?

I have decided that I am going to start this business! I am still thinking of a creative name and have a lot of other things to prepare for, so watch for updates!
