Handmade using Red Heart Sashay Yarn
For Sale ready to ship
This is a new journey for me and I’m trying. I hope to one day have loyal customers that will want to buy from me. I do it for myself but it’s always a bonus to get a little money for what you love to do. I keep at it and watch others be successful at whatever they want, while I can’t seem to get that kind of support. I may get a like here or there and I appreciate that so much because at least I know I’m being noticed.
I will keep trying and hopefully one sale will turn into multiple sales. I’m just not sure what my calling is, what my purpose on this earth is. What should I be doing to succeed. I don’t know but all I can do now is be happy with my choices and I choose to continue on with this journey and hope for the best.
This post is to hopefully reach many and out of those many maybe just one person will want to buy from me and become a regular customer.
Of course I had to first do this for myself and I now have to try it out. It’s always exciting to create something with your hands and it’s turns out good or it can actually be used. There is nothing more better than homemade and handmade.
This crocheted shower pouf will last way longer, I would say a lifetime. Of course at some point the store brought one will start to unravel and there is no fixing it. The crocheted one is well made and would take a lot for it to come undone. Honestly it is impossible for it to come undone.
Ok I tried a different kind of stitch and I have chosen that the one in my last blog post will be for dishcloths and the one about to show you will be for washcloth.
Looks pretty good with the factory brand huh. I done this one for my mom and added her favorite color red. She even confirmed that she loves it and said, “You’re only making me one.” So I will be making her another one. Also she agreed that the other one would be better as a dishcloth as well.
Soon I will be trying my hand at making homemade soap, I can’t wait. I have such sensitive weird skin that I want to put together something perfect for my skin and focus on things like helping with itching, sensitive, dry (eczema) and to keep my skin hydrated. Stay Tuned.
I am loving my crocheting journey.
I finished a crocheted washcloth using the Tunisian stitch, using 100% yarn and I really like it. This was the first test run, I’m trying to figure out what the best stitch would be to use. This is what the end result was…
I like it but there is definitely things I want to do differently. I should make it a bit bigger. So next I tasted it out by taking a shower to see how it feels. It actually feels alright. I will for sure add the accent color a different way, I just wanted to try it this way to see how it will turn out. For sure this will probably be better as a dishcloth maybe but no matter how I use it, it works.
I will be going back to the “drawing broad” before I will make for sale.
A new item I will be crocheting are soap savers. I made one for myself some time back and it’s one with a drawstring, but the string gets in the way and I’m so happy to found another way to make them without the drawstring and I love it.
If you’re wondering what the hack is a soap saver, well it allows the soap to last longer. You are able to use every bit of the soap. You know how you end up with the broken piece(s) of soap that you can’t hold in your hand anymore and too small to use. This helps that problem by it’s in the soap saver and it stays, the soap even soaks into the yarn so I have even used it when the bar of soap was completely gone but there was still soap there saved into the yarn.
It’s an awesome gift and even more awesome way to tell the difference of everyone soap, if people in your household use different soap. Even if you have quests over you can give a gift to them and they have there very own soap saver with there soap.
*washcloths and dishcloths will be coming also* this is just the beginning. Stay Tuned!
This red and black shrug I made for my mother and she loves it. A shrug that is oversized is cozy and comforts you like a blanket.
This one I did for myself.
Also this one I wanted to try my hand at a long sleeve shrug and I love it.
