1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Bunny Slippers on: April 17, 2014 07:54:52 AM
Tank you so much!!! Cheesy I saw a pattern for a pair of bunny slippers for babies and have been looking for a pattern for adult ones since. I have not been able to find one anywhere and was just going to use a regular slipper pattern and add bunny ears and a face. Now i can actually make a bunny slipper. Just found this through a Google search and so glad I did.

I do have a question though. On row 4 it says sc in the next 10, repeat *to*. Does that mean you repeat the part of row 3 that is between the *and*? Also every time it says repeat *, is that also meaning to repeat from *to* from row 3?

Good idea. I will try posting a few things and price them so I can have them as free shipping. Thanks.
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Selling on Etsy? on: May 26, 2013 04:58:04 PM
I was thinking of maybe starting to sell some crocheted items on Etsy. I was thinking coffee cozies/ mug cozies, all different kinds like ones here: http://pinterest.com/forhazel/mug-cozies/; coasters (possibly using these squares as coasters: http://zoomyummy.com/2012/09/20/crochet-3d-flower-squares-revisited/); head bands with flowers; coin purses like these: http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2012/04/crochet-coin-purse.html and little purses like this: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80313AD.html; etc. Just things that are kind of easy and don't take too long to make so I could make several if they happen to sell and so I could have a variety of things to offer. I may make stuff like amigurumi animals, scarves, and whatever else I happen to find patterns for that I like later on if I feel like sticking with something for a while (I tend to like crocheting things that don't take too much time to make so I don't get tired of just working on the same thing all the time).

I'm wondering if it would be worth it to start a shop on Etsy for crocheted items. I searched for crochet on Etsy and there were thousands of results. So, would it even be worth it to make crocheted items and try to sell on Etsy with so many of them already on the site (would the items sell)? It does take a lot of time to crochet items and I wouldn't want to make several items and then they don't sell on there, then be stuck with the items and no use for them (after spending the time making them). Any thoughts on selling crocheted items on Etsy would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for the ideas. I found some easy patterns for a coffee cup cozy, a mug cozy, and a water bottle holder and am making 10 of each. Got almost all of them done, just a few mug cozies and water bottle holders left to do. If I have any yarn left I will make some of the ponytail holders.
I just might use the idea of scrubbies, coasters, garland, bracelets, and small amigurumi animals for an etsy shop. Thinking about maybe doing that.

I would like to make some crochet items to sell at a town wide yard sale that is coming up at the end of this month. Short notice I know, but I just thought of this. What are some quick and easy things to make and sell? Something that doesn't take too much yarn and is really quick to crochet that people would actually buy? I am thinking maybe coffee cup cozies, but not sure if those would sell too well and not sure what else I could crochet to sell. Any ideas would be appreciated.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: What are YOU giving your valentine? on: February 11, 2013 11:48:13 AM
This year I made a framed picture I drew. I wrote "Love without reason lasts the longest" and then drew some flowers around the words and framed it. I also made a card from a printable pattern on Martha Stewart's website that was of a train. I made a little envelope and put a note in it and glued it to the little train car on the picture. I also printed some blank Valentines coupons and I'm writing things on them like, "Will watch an action movie with you", "breakfast in bed", etc. and decorating the front with some scrapbooking paper scraps and little letters I have. Will also get some candy as well this week.

For my niece, who is 5, I am making her a little mailbox using this pattern: http://www.simplymodernmom.com/2010/01/special-delivery-paper-mailbox-tutorial-and-pattern/ and decorating the paper myself with hearts and such. I'm putting in a card I made that says "You are tops in my book" and has a slit above the words to put a little bookmark. For the bookmark I cut out 2 little hearts from a pair of old jeans then sewed around it so that it has a pink outline and put stuffing in it. I'm making a beaded bookmark then attaching the heart to the end of it. I'm also putting some Hershey kisses and a Hershey bar (with a wrapper I am making for it... drawing it with the word "Sweetheart" on it and some hearts) in the mailbox.

For my mom, I made her a card that looks like a mailbox and cut out the lid so that the flap opens and I'm making her a beaded bookmark and putting it in the hole of the mailbox on the card.

For my 2 aunts I'm making a drawing and framing it for them (not sure what they will say just yet), won't see them for a while yet (they're coming to visit sometime in March they said), so I still have a while yet on theirs. Also making a card, not certain which one yet (might make the mailbox one and make them a bookmark as well to put in it).
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Fall Festival Party - ideas needed! on: October 04, 2012 09:54:44 AM
I am planning to have a fall festival type party, NOT a Halloween party, just fall festival. I need ideas for what type of things to make to decorate and what type of things to do... ideas for everything from table settings to games to decorations. This is my first time having this type of a party. It will only be for a small family gathering including my niece who is 5 and possibly (not certain yet) my other niece and nephew who are 2 and 3. I'm not sure exactly what all to do and most ideas I have come across online are for large festivals for like a church or school where there will be lots of kids/adults. I need some ideas for just a small gathering.
I was thinking a bonfire and have hot dogs to roast and smores. Other than that I'm not really sure. Maybe a small pumpkin for each kid to decorate? Then just have markers, paint, etc. for them to use to decorate it. And maybe 'goodie bags' for both kids and adults... but what to decorate them as and with? What to put in them (other than candy, of course)? I was thinking maybe those brown paper lunch bags decorated up like a scarecrow or pumpkin... but where to find the design. I've searched and haven't really found anything. There will be maybe 9 adults and 3 kids. Any and all suggestions would be very helpful. Thanks.

Note: I can not do hay rides, just not far enough out in the country and do not have anything for a means to do so with. Not enough kids to do that for anyway.

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: 2011 Holiday Crafting To Do Lists! on: December 04, 2011 08:36:26 AM
Got my niece's doll finished. Just have to put it together now and make the little dress. Got a shawl finished as well and almost finished with a poncho as well. Starting on the Bible covers today for my other aunt and a friend. Those should not take too long to finish. Also a little over half done with the two afghans. So, I'm slowly getting closer to getting that list I posted done. Going to spend a lot of time today working on these things. Got a virus going around our house and we pretty much all have it. Not feeling well today, so it seems like a great time to sit under the covers with some Christmas movies and get a lot of these things finished.
