Crochet for a craft fair

I’ve gotten some good feedback about the upcoming craft fair, so I’m feeling much better about it, thank you! I’ve decided to leave my prices as is: they’re more than fair, and I’d rather hang on to my projects than sell them at cost or just above cost. If I don’t value my work, how I can expect a customer to value it, right?

With that in mind, I’m trying to think of a few fast projects I can make before the show. Hats seem to be a popular suggestion, so I’m aiming for three of the Princess Anna-inspired hood. I’m going to try to make at least two sets of owl hats, matching ones for girls and 18″ dolls. I’ll sell them separately, though. If I have time after that, I’d like to make another newsboy like this one. I really liked how the yarn and pattern worked so well together.IMG_2645And then, if I have any *more* time (I’ll pause here for the laughing to subside. Okay? Okay.) I want to make some boot cuffs. I made some last winter and not only were they fast, but they were super cute and very popular. These were my faves. IMG_3051 IMG_3093 IMG_3043 IMG_3448 IMG_3436I think that’s all I can even dream to finish in the next two weeks, and I know, that’s stretching it. But a girl’s gotta dream. And if I focus on these projects only, I should be able to get a lot done. I can crochet a lot faster than I can knit. Now, I’ve got my yarn, my hook, and my wrist brace…I’m ready to get going!

  1. I think the matching hats for little girls and their dolls is a good idea! I also don’t think selling them separately is a terrible idea, but maybe put an option to buy them as a pair and give them a $3-5-10 discount (depending on how much you’d sell each for individually), people are always looking for good deals, and $3-5-10 is huge! Just an idea.

    That newsboy hat is beautiful! I love the way the yarn striped. I love the boot cuffs, too. I kind of wish I wore boots!

    • Ooh, great idea to do a discount for the set! I’ve done that before, just hadn’t occurred to me for these. I just don’t want to discourage the buyers who only want one. But I’ll absolutely do a deal on the set…as soon as I figure out how much I’m charging for them! 🙂

      I love that newsboy too. Makes me wish I wore hats!
