|The baby hat that started it all|
Sure, why not? I like to crochet and knit in my free time, and I have a gazillion balls of scrap yarn perfect for making baby accessories. So I sent off some samples (aka stuff I made for Dexter), and she shopped them around to the boutique stores. Immediately, the first shopkeeper wanted to know a) how long it would take me to make that hat and mitten set and b) how many I could crank out in a month. Ugh. I wasn't thinking of crocheting non-stop in every spare second I have after work and I especially don't like making the same thing over and over again.
So with this sudden dose of reality, my career as a mainstream seller of homemade yarn crafts came to a swift end. I told Shauna that if I ever had any extra time and wanted to make something for sell, I'd send it her way, but none of this "making things on a schedule." >_< I definitely prefer making spontaneous gifts rather than assignments for sale.

Do any of you make craft items for sale? If so, how do you sell them and is it worth it?
