This work-at-home-mom is into crocheting lately. I started making headbands for my Nati when she was still inside my womb. I just feel the need to learn this craft because I believe it can be income-generating in the future. True enough, a mommy blogger I just met wanted me to make a crocheted choker for her and her children. I told her I need time to practice since I am into making headbands only. Need to find a nice yet simple pattern for the choker necklace.
Meanwhile, my sister Carol who is sewing baby ring sling just made a sale through me and Nati. The young mom and her mother saw me babywearing Nati during our last visit to her pedia. They got Carol’s contact and ordered a ring sling. I just love the color! Carol asked us to deliver the ring sling and I just feel generous to send a crocheted headband to the baby as freebie.
Thought of a good marketing strategy. I will be giving away a crocheted headband for every purchase of a ring sling! Yay! I am serious about considering this a business so I need as much exposure as possible. Now I am planning to have a nice packaging so my hair trinkets would be gift-worthy. I was thinking of commissioning an online friend to design a logo for my crochet stuff then I’ll have it printed in board stocks for packaging. I’ll just look for an establishment that offers wholesale printing so I could save in packaging cost.
