October's Friday Night Sew-In Results



Handmade by Heidi
 
Last night was the Friday Night Sew-In that is hosted by Handmade by Heidi and Crafty Vegas Mom.  I participated and accomplished quite a bit.  I was able to finish five, yes five, infant crochet hats.  Granted the red and black striped munchkin hat was already crocheted it just needed a pom-pom made and put on it but still I must say I did get quite a bit done. 
 







Honestly, yesterday was one of those cold, rainy nasty days where curling up on the couch with some yarn and catching up on some DVR'd shows was wonderful.  Plus, I must admit this was not really crocheting just for fun, it was for work, although for me all crocheting is fun. 

Back in August during the Friday Night Sew-In I crocheted a couple of baby hat's for my neice (post is here).  After crocheting them I decided to try a few more baby hat patterns, and several people suggested that I could sell my hats.  So that is what I am doing now.  I have just started an Etsy shop (see it here) that I am slowly adding items to and am planning on doing a couple of craft/holiday shows over the next couple of months.  In addition to my hats, I am going to make a few aprons, and other handmade gift ideas.  Once I have a pretty good selection of items I plan to do a "Grand Opening".

Since I love to crochet and sew it's not really like work, it's fun and that's what last night was for me, fun.  The combination of crocheting items to add to the shop and participating in the Friday Night Sew-In gave me the perfect excuse to crochet.
