I am all for things handmade and homemade. I have crocheted blankets, hats, scarfs, slippers and dish cloths that I have had for years. In fact my teenage son has a crocheted blanket my grandmother crocheted for me when I was in high school. Homemade quality gifts last so much longer than store bought factory made items. DIY is the way to go.

Do you love DIY crafts and having some extra money would be great? Have you thought about selling your crafting creations?
earning money crocheting from home
You can earn a great income selling your crochet projects and DIY crafting creations from home. Whether you are selling by word of mouth, just to family and friends, online or at your local farmers markets you are sure to sell out. Homemade and handmade gifts are popular.
In fact locally I have met so many crafters that supplement their income with crafting income. And a few that have cashed in the 9-5 to fully support their family on their creative income sources.
