Got all my Ducks in a Row

Got all of them in a row (the last one wanted to be difficult so it’s close enough)

I am having a great time making puppet animals! I made these and the crochet frog puppets for the community play that is being performed in March. Come see these puppets in action (my awesome family is in the play too)

Crochet

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!
