My Daily Crochet Adventures

WIP Week

10 Comments

Hello everyone!

It is Wednesday, my weekly update day and I usually have some finished work to show but not this week. This week is pure work in progress.

I have spent many hours this week working behind the scenes. Working on my website and on opening my etsy shop. If you would like to see my shop you can click the link in the sidebar or HERE. My shop name is ‘GiftsByCricket’. I only have a few items listed so far but will be adding more soon. I am new to the Etsy world. I would really appreciate any advice you guys have for me about running my shop.

I have also been doing a lot of hat testing on my cloche pattern which I have named ‘Lannahbelle’s Cloche’ after my daughter. I am also working on some flowers for a request for headbands and clips. Have a look!

Flowers

crochet flowersI have been testing flower patterns trying to find ones that will work for the clips and headbands I am making. I will put together a post of free flower patterns hopefully for our free pattern Monday. I want to try a few more first. I am having a great time making these flowers!

Hats

adult cloche hatI added an edging to the adult cloche hat I was working on. And I will add a flower soon. Once I choose a favorite. It is hard to decide which flower I like better.

adult cloche hatI would like your opinion on something. Do you like the smaller white edged flower or the larger more colorful flower for this pink hat?

Cloche hat and Handbag Sets

I am considering using the two very colorful flowers on my next cloche and little lady handbag set. Do you like it or should I stick with the white as the accent color?

Well that’s it for this week. Hopefully next week I will have a bunch of finished projects to show you guys!

Don’t forget to visit my new Etsy shop! You can also follow Crochet Cricket on Pinterest and Facebook. Just check the sidebar for the links!

Have a great week everyone!

  1. i love the white flower more to me it is a prettier accent 🙂 I love your work very chic..

  2. Thank you Daniella 😀 for the kind words and responding to my flower questions.

  3. It’s hard to choose, I like them both! Your etsy shop looks great, I’ve favourited your yellow bag 🙂 Just one thing, the shipping info at the bottom says “Shipped from Australia”, but you are in Canada, right?

  4. I understand completely. It is taking a long time to get everything together and learning how to manage all of these social media sites hehe. There isn’t enough time in the day really! Not to mention being a full time mommy there is only so much you can do when you have little ones. But it is coming along nicely. I don’t want to get overwhelmed so it is better to take it slow :).

  5. I love the coloured flowers. Congratulations on your store.

  6. Good Luck in your new venture!
