Warning_ Photo Heavy Post!!

So, this is what it's like to try to make money off something you used to do for fun?

I still need feedback about pricing: overall cost for production: ~$6-8 dollars each. Time to make each bag: 30 minutes. Any ideas?

all of them...so far (add 8 tonight!)

Close up of my favorite (so far)

PC's favorite (he likes red)

Pumpkin's favorite (she was pawing at it)



So, want to see what our girl has been up to? (gratuitous cat photos ahead!)

and this is what happens when I said "look cute for the camera!" I think we found her calling...

And here is the crocheted hat I made in 1 1/2 nights (started at 9pm on Sunday, worked for an hour or so, worked last night for 1.5 hours....) I would share the project but i got it from a friend at the Knitting Guild. I think she's teaching it as a class, so I will ask permission for the pattern details!

Yarn: 2 skeins Noro Kureyon (I had 2 skeins) of Color #134
Needles: Size K hook (aluminum)--- I would use a smaller hook or denser yarn
Time: 3 hours? if you crochet fast.
Overall: LOVE It! going to make a few more as gifts!


Top of the hat looks cool, no? I don't think it needs a blocking, but it might look better... I am imagining the next one as a 3 strand of mohair, wool and silk... you need about 200 yds of each. :)

Imagine the possibilities!


  1. I like the red one and the striped one, very cute! I would prefer a different color for the handle, like tan or beige. That's just me. :)

    I think about $20.00 would be great....they're both pretty and functional. I agree with your choice of "favorite".


  3. i love the funky floral one! cute labels!

  4. I prefer your choice too. I am horrible at pricing. Are you going to sell the on Etsy or locally?
