Daffodils

I’ve devoted a lot of time to create this beautiful spring flower – the daffodil. It is going to be my new garland, not typical because without leaves, crochet only with flowers. I’ve crocheted only one flower as far and am going to create the new bunting this weekend because we have Monday free of work and celebrate Constitution Day. Unfortunately, the weather forecast says that there will be a cold and rainy weekend, so I plan to spend more time with my crocheting.

The Most Popular Item

Today I decided to take stock of the sales in our CrochetCabinetCrafts shop on Etsy. It turns out that the most popular product is Daisies garland. It was sent to Basildon and London in the United Kingdom, Hedgesville, West Virginia and Enfield, New Hampshire in the USA. I always check the address where I send my products to avoid possible mistakes because customers are human too and can make mistakes. Also, I like to know where my product will decorate the house and where the people who liked my product so much that they decided to buy it live. I can also add that I enjoy reading about these cities, so working for Etsy you could say expands my horizons not only filling up my wallet 🙂 Thus, this is today’s hero:

My New Toy

It’s certainly not a toy, it’s my long-awaited purchase – a mannequin. I choose it after a long time and the main criterion for choosing exactly it was the colour of the upholstery – natural linen of a possible light shade. This was the colour I was looking for because I guess it shows off white, cream, beige collars as well as burgundy, navy blue or black collars. I spent the whole day running around the flat with this mannequin, looking for the best light, which I failed to do because the day is overcast and it’s raining outside, but I took a couple of pictures anyway. Now I have a lot of work – to crochet almost all the collars, take photos of them on a mannequin and upload them to my shop. Wish me luck!

High Neck Collar

This is the first time I have tried to knit a high neck collar. When I looked at these on the internet, I always thought I couldn’t do it, and wouldn’t make it. However, being on holiday in the Baltic Sea last year, it felt like it crocheted itself – that’s what a good holiday means, not only physically but also mentally! So, let’s keep trying and we’ll make it work!

Collar

The first V-neck crochet collar at LaceCrochetFinds this. This handmade crochet detachable lace collar necklace made to make your lazy day sweater outfit look more put together or add additional decor to a dress or blouse. This elegant white lace collar can be a great gift idea too. What is more, this collar can be used as a new accent for creating New Victorian-style costumes for Cosplay, Halloween and different Festivals. The collar is made from 100% mercerized cotton yarn, it is nice to touch but also structured.

Popular item

The most popular item at our Etsy shop CrochetCabinetCrafts is a Flower Garland, that’s why I am working on some new ones.

The garland consisits of a flower, a leaf and is jointed with a thin crochet string like in the picture.

Last orders

Our newly opened Etsy shop Crochetabinet Crafts is slowly taking off and I am very excited about it. That’s why I want to show off what I’ve been working on lately – a set of mini poppies flew to Canada, Toronto (and I’m seriously worried about the delivery time), and Daisy garland (which is our most popular product at the moment) flew to the USA, Hedgesville. So you can see the process of creating these commissions and completed products to compare.
