First Batch! Improvement Needed

Crochet as hobby and crochet as industry
are two very different things

Specially like me a crochet as you go type
so, making one sample and to teach another to do exactly the same
is quite stressful.
I found that different person are very different handling

The word "Handmade" now is so powerful in my mind..

Because at the beginnign even literally holding the hook are different from each other..
Not to mention Gauge  oooh!   so much tricky than creating the design

Here are rough trial before sewing process

I'm still learning by doing to create design that of course has to be interesting
but easy to make in the same time
since its impossible for me to make every piece of the products

Not to mention yarn hunting
buying for your personal favorite is limitless and priceless

but for industry??
ah, so hard to combine quality and affordable price

well, still doing this because the word crochet is still involve

so, I'm learning to find the fun in crochet industry...
guess if there still yarn and hook in it
I'll fall in love all over again...


Time Flies When You're Busy

Oh my God, Oh My God....!

how I really missed to write my story
Time is really priceless if you had so much to do.

I'm so handful with my 2 angels..
Kalyla and Ameera

not to mention my deadlines as a graphic designer..
oh, and my managerial duty of my husband photography studio hahaha....

and for the last 3 month I've been working on crochet project with my best friend..

Very exciting!
He's opening a furniture gallery and trust me to create crochet products as his store accessories department..

And here are the first trial and error design..
quite a start for exploring the yarns, shape and everything..

and crochet management indeed an important element
because crocheting a dozen cushion for one design is quite tricky

I've 6 crocheter, housewives that doing all the crochet after I made one sample.
and then on to the sewing process for the lining and labelling.. etc

Business is less fun than the crochet itself..

but, the part when I'm exploring new design is everything...!!
specially when my client approved it :D

I'll catch up with the first batch of the production
and will trying my best to post all the pattern too
