I love knitting and crochet, each has its own place in my life. I love to use my knitting machines when I am at home, but when traveling it is the crochet hooks I pull out. Yes, crocheting on the go is a constant activity in my life. Crocheting for money is possible if you choose the right items to make and sell.
I love to crochet baby blankets, as they are such great gifts and
easy to sell. This is one of you most profitable items you can make when
crocheting for money. Usually I have one in the making at all times.
Crochet hooks and yarn are so very portable, it is easy to carry your projects with you where ever you go.
There are always baby showers and special occasions, people are always looking for beautiful gifts.
And nothing says I care like a handmade gift.
So I am always working on one item or another. If you crochet already I know you are the same way. But now we are going to learn to earn money with this obsession.
Yes my motto is “Crocheting hands are happy hands.”
That explains why a craft business is so perfect for me, doesn't it?
Where ever I go I am working on an item for the business. You always need a supply of slippers, hats, mittens, doll clothes and baby items. And these are perfect when you are crocheting for money, because they are small and make up quickly.
And of course there are always the special orders that can't be made ahead of time. The customer will order a specific item in a special size or certain colors. So we are constantly creating, making and thinking of what else we can add to our inventory or line. Crocheting for money is not easy if you are just making and selling large items like afghans. You must add smaller items that make up quickly or you will never make any profit.
Once addicted, yarn and patterns are something you are always looking for. Yes even at yard sales, thrift stores or retail stores. If there is yarn we will find it.
Always keep your eyes open for needles, hooks, looms, books and machines at these places. If you come across the wide handle crochet hooks do buy them, these hooks are fabulous.
