1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Question for Crochet Pattern Sellers on: August 17, 2012 01:43:40 PM
I'm going to be selling my first pattern on Etsy in a few days.
I think I will allow buyers to sell the finished project.
(I obviously don't want the pattern to be shared.)

But first I want to know from experienced sellers the pros and cons of how you allow your sold
pattern to be used. 

I noticed that most of the patterns I've bought on Etsy (I've bought about 10) ask that you NOT sell the finished project.  I never sell anything I crochet so it doesn't matter to me.

I'm really curious as to how and why sellers decide how their pattern is to be used by the buyer.

Thanks in advance for all responses!   Smiley

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Rich Mitered Throw (free pattern link) on: September 24, 2009 12:01:24 PM
When I saw this throw, I just HHAAAADDD to make it!!

http://www.coatsandclark.com/NR/rdonlyres/7A43742B-9250-4136-A09F-411F9954CA1D/131512/WR1745.pdf











I used Red Heart SuperSaver. 
Sewing the squares together was kind of difficult because it's not a perfect square.
So the completed throw has an odd shape.

I really enjoyed making this throw.
It's a very unique pattern and has an interesting "look."

This pattern would also look very nice if done in 6 different shades of purple or 6 different shades of green.



Thanks for looking!!!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / weave in end when using double ring? on: April 15, 2009 01:11:07 PM
I started this granny square by making a double ring.
(not the traditional joined chain)

Does the end need to be weaved in?
I'm thinking I can just snip it off because it's already weaved in.

All opinions welcome!!

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Summer Purse on: April 10, 2009 06:59:48 AM
I found this pattern on Etsy and had to have it!
What I like most is the fabric band.
 
But I was thinking of making a "themed" purse.
Like black yarn with silky Asian material or Holiday material or animal print.

For this one, I just used yarn and fabric I already had.
I'm real happy with how it turned out!









Thanks for looking!

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sunny Tote on: March 05, 2009 07:19:48 AM
This pattern was in the March issue of Crochet Today.
I had to change it a bit because the original pattern called for 24 hexagons.
Too big!!!!
I made 18 hexagons and it's still a little too big.
It measures 13" wide and 14" tall.



I lined it with some funky pink cotten material. 
I ironed Pellon interface to the material to make it nice and stiff.



I used purple bias tape to attach the rings to the lining.
Then crocheted directly onto the rings









Thanks for looking!!!

9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Valentine Heart Garland & White Bear on: January 13, 2009 08:37:25 AM
I made the bear for Christmas, but didn't want to put him away just yet.
So I took his scarf off and tied a small heart to his neck.

Here's the pattern for the bear:

Here's the pattern for the Heart garland:
http://suzies-yarnie-stuff.blogspot.com/2008/01/heart-garland-c.html

I changed this pattern a bit.  I added a row of pink sc's on top and below the chain.
When I was adding the sc's to the bottom part of the chain, I hooked a piece of the heart to the sc. 
This way the hearts laid flat to the chain. 
Hope that makes sense!

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Granny Purse with Owl Lining on: January 08, 2009 07:25:10 AM
I found this purse on line and wanted to make somthing similar.
http://www.thepurseworkshop.com/Granny-Square-Pucker-Purse.html



I chose a different granny square pattern and made 9 small squares per side instead of 4.






I bought the owl lining first and then chose my yarn colors based on the lining.
I ironed Pellon Fusible Interface to the lining.  





I even made a small pocket in the lining!!



It's very loud and colorful and has tons of texture.
My husband said it looks and feels like an expensive purse!




I used bias tape to sew the handles to the lining.




Thanks for looking!!
