When we were in Portland Mike secured me an order for two of my crocheted hats. The sister of our friend that got married has a 1 and 3 year old and she loved my pink and purple toddler hat and blue and brown owl hat. I have been working hard on getting these two hats crocheted for her. I haven’t had much time for anything else crafty or blog related since I had a paying customer.
I made the hats the same as I did in the previous projects. I used a larger button for the center of the flower but otherwise I used the same colors and yarn which was Lily Sugar and Cream cotton.
I have been toying around with the idea of an Etsy shop for awhile. I’ve even mentioned it here before. I’ve sold a couple of hats to some people at work before and this sale has made me think about having a shop again. Mike helped me come up with a name, CW Wearables. What do you think? It was really hard for me to find a name that wasn’t taken. I didn’t want to limit myself to only crochet or hats so I think the name works as a broader category.
I even printed up some business cards. I wanted them immediately so I didn’t have time to wait to order them through the mail. I still would get them printed professionally but these work as a quick fix.
I wrapped my hats up with a little but of tissue paper and a yarn bow to make it fun to open them up.
Now to think of designs I would want in my shop. I think these two work really well and my easy newborn hat probably would too. It’s one of my most popular posts so I think other people must like the design :) We will see how long it takes for me to get this shop up and running since I’ve considered it before and it’s never gone anywhere. Christmas is coming and I will be starting to work on Christmas presents so I’m not sure how much time I will dedicate to the shop but I’m feeling excited about it so I think you will be seeing a grand opening in the future.
