I hardly recalled what I did on the January 2010. That was the time that I just started the etsy site selling my crochet doll. I was amazed that I sold my snowman two days after I setup the site. I decided a lot on what to do with my ‘business’. Since it is a tiger year for 2010, I decided to make a tiger doll. I searched the webstite to look for a tiger doll that resemble something I wanted to make and got myself creating one by looking at some other crochet dolls picture. I finally I made one and my friends and family loved it so much. Though I may not sell any online (except the pattern) I managed to sold three of them to my friends a few months later.
Due to popular demand, I decided to modify my tiger doll to the more popular hobbes (Calvin and Hobbes) in US. Since I am selling over at US site, I should not be making dolls that are popular over at Asia like Doraemon, Hello Kitty, amigurami Cats, etc. That was the time that I figured that I should focus more on market demand than what I think I like. I was also thinking of the Valentine’s season and trying out making a Heart angel Hello Kitty. Too bad it did not catch any buyer.
I went back to make a pouch to try out if any buyers interested in crocheted bag. But it did not turn out well too. Well guess I have to concentrate working hard on the hobbes then. My reward at the end of the month was I manageed to sell my first hobbes away. 🙂
Stay tune for my next blog on how well was my ‘business’. See you!
