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.
