Since I have some left over yarn from the daisy I made for my tote bag, I made a coin purse to go with it. This is my first trial in making a kisslock (gamaguchi) coin purse with crocheted yarn. Not bad huh!
I am going to make more of this as I find it not as difficult as I thought, except the sewing part to attach the metal kisslock frame onto the purse.
Recently I was struggling with this issue: “should I make some crafts for sale?”…. You know, economy is bad and my hobby has become a luxury expenditure in the household. I know I have to do something to get my hobby going without burdening the family. One thing I can think of is to sell some of my handmade creations and generate some income to fund my next project and so on…. But, it saddens me that I am commercializing my craftwork. What do you think, should I?
