Ok, last Halloween-related post of the year – promise! This year, let's just say I got sucked into making a few costumes for 3 friends' kids. Despicable Me minions hats to be exact. However, I have a firm habit of not making crafts for money, only gifts. That's at least 4 evenings per hat, given that I'm working more hours now and have less free time at night. I was looking at many hours of intensive crocheting (mainly because of the multiple parts – hands, eyes, googles, mouth, etc.) for probably nothing more than a thanks. Now I love my friends, but in this season of my life, I'm desperately needing sleep more. And God just told me to cut down on my commitments. Gaaaahh... what to do?
|Not sure she fully appreciates all the time and effort that went into this hat ^_~|
|This is the only picture of kid #1 wearing it because he couldn't stop ripping it off and staring at it in amazement. Fuzzy heart feeling #^__^#|
Update: here's the link to the pattern I used. Good luck, everyone!
Have you ever bartered your crafting or other skills? If so, what did you ask for in return?
