My new bag, Joann’s purchases, and my first donation!

1 Mar

My new bag, Joann's purchases, and my first donation!

This is what I made today! It took me about nine hours. I’m making my boyfriend a hat that looks like a cooked turkey (which, in the future, will match the bacon scarf and steak mittens I am also gonna make him). While at school, I finished the actual hat part, but did not have the right tools to make the drumsticks I’m gonna attach on top, so I made myself a “man purse.” It’s actually more like a crocheted backpack. It’s been floating around in my head for quite a while and I finally did it. It’s nothing fancy, but it came out quite well.

My friend, who sees how incessantly I crochet, gave me his Joann’s coupons that he received in the mail, so right now I’m picking out the things I want to buy from them. I live in a teeny tiny town so my local Joann’s has a teeny tiny selection, so I’m probably gonna buy off the internet. I know I need more of this bag yarn to finish the turkey hat and the tails I am planning on making. I’m also gonna get some black Red Heart yarn, because for some reason I don’t have any, and one doesn’t need expensive, nice yarn for stuff like amigurumi detailing and things. I’m also going to get some lighter weight yarn, to make my friend a lacy purple gothic overskirt (have not yet decided on a pattern). But alas, I can only use one coupon per order! So I may very well just buy the purple for now.

Also, since it’s the end of the month, I made my first donation to the National Center for Transgender Equality! It was only five dollars, but maybe I’ll get more help in the future. This month, in total, I made NINE DOLLARS AND FIFTY FIVE CENTS once I take out expenses. I sold two things, one on Etsy and one to a friend. Makin’ bank!


So I sold my first thing the other day!

So I sold my first thing the other day!

As much as I hate to admit it, I have had my Etsy shop open since August 2012 and sold nothing until February 2013. To be fair, I didn’t list many objects and then let it fall by the wayside once school started. Still, it felt really good and I am excited for it to, y’know, start happening more often…

All my friends play role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons CONSTANTLY, so I decided to learn how to make dice bags. Please comment if you’d like to know how I made it.
