Hi guys.

I was just wondering what the general mood of the forum is towords sharing crochet baby outfits made by me or someone close to me who is not a team of super knitting monkeys locked in my basement.. erhhmm.

Anyways, this is the outfit. Its a once off and is made strictly from someones creative mind so there will not be another one out there which probably makes it special for some people.

If anyones interested and would like this for a special someone please send me a pm and we can talk more about it. It took over 15 hours to make and had a lot of love poured into it.

It is very cute :) well done I just end up in a ball of wool when I crochet lol maybe look up http://www.etsy.com/?ref=so_home for selling on, that's where I go to buy most of my clothing etc as there are many hand made items on there :) Making an account with them is simple too.

Thanks for the tip Rosie :) You've made my girls day by saying that its cute ;)

I do my own business on ebay but handcrafted stuff just doesnt sell all that well on there. I will let her know about that etsy site and she can check it out.

Just confirming that www.etsy.com is definitely the answer here.
It costs just 10 cents per month to post up to five photos of an item
and there are quite a few ways to advertise one's etsy shop.
To be a successful seller on etsy means daily maintenance...
Etsy becomes a life style.


I just googled 'crochet baby outfits etsy' clicked on images, and all this showed up.

I hope she doesn't feel that the competition is overwhelming...which was my problem with the one of a kind jewelry I make.

Thank you Ulli!

I was hoping that the "once off" special aspect would have a fair market but it looks far tougher than what im doing myself :)

Thats a lovely summer outfit for the baby, better not show my g/f :P

Cool , and I would definetly get some for the kids also .

...and ill have to wait for the wife to get back home so she can take the measurements , because I have no idea how that works hehehehe all i can tell you is I am 6ft 250lbs
A regular xl or xxl at the stores dont fit me , I have a super long upper body/torso , also they are so big on the width they look like a sail on me , so bad it seems you could fit 2 of me in there lol , but never long enough .

So send me a pm Jack with your email and we will set something up
