I have a friend named Gina

I have a friend named Gina. We were working in the same company, three years back. I sometimes hang out with her group of friends during lunch and merienda, but we were never really close as we are now. Maybe because the time when I was new in the company, she was on a maternity leave. When she got back, there were never enough time to be really close, but according to her, I was able to influence her into crocheting. Hence, the story of friendship begun.

This is one of the few good stories that crafting really brings people together. Most of the similarities, besides the passion for the craft comes from having “bigger than life” son, and a recently married life, which becomes our everyday topic as we share frustrations over missed stitch and lost hooks and delight over recently finished projects.

Gina loves crocheting. I think, more than crocheting itself, she likes the joy it brings to his son, who she adores so much that almost all her works are attributed to him. My most favorite one, a crocheted vest made from silk-cashmere blend.

Look at the facce of her kid!

I also love the bag she made. It’s an owl! And yes, it is for this sweet little kiddo again!

She also made a pair of socks, some toys and hats and scarves and so many more for this lucky child. I do wish I could make something for my baby too. But as selfish as I am, almost all my works are for me, and me and me. Besides, my son hates socks, hats, scarves and jackets. He only likes to wear very thin shirts.

Hehe, now back to Gina. I am telling this because we recently shared eagerness to earn something from crochet. As she was really very prudent in pricing her creations, I am encouraging her to take more value in what she can do, hence you might see some of her creations in my facebook page as well. :) Hopefully, our venture would be profitable :) Goodluck to us!!!






Big and Fat and Silver Crocheted Earrings

Background: I decided I am going to sell so that I can earn the money I need to purchase new yarns. This way, I can buy what I want without harming our budget.

Big and Fat and Silver – retails at P200 per pair

They are crocheted using a 100% Metallic Polyester yarn from Ice Yarns. I used kidney earring wires so that it will have a lock, hence it will lessen the probability that you will lose the crocheted earring :)

I am so happy with the earrings that I want them to be boxed on special boxes, so I have to take out my cricut machine to create fabulous boxes:
