Best Selling Crafts 2012 The Baby Boom


People are always asking what crafts sell the best. Right now I would say the hands down winner is anything to do with babies. Baby blankets, sweaters, hats, beanies, diaper covers, clothes, baby nursery decor etc.
Baby headbands for baby girls are also really popular right now and easy to make. Apparently people stopped having babies for a few years when the economy sunk. Well now I guess they figured the economy is what it is and they better go ahead and have those babies because retail forecasts say we are in a baby boom. The great thing is people will pay a good price for quality baby items. They don't seem to second guess it as much. Especially if its handmade and something not readily available in retail stores. Every show we go to people just love our crocheted baby hats, blankets, booties etc. They usually tell us no one in their family makes handmade baby items and they want their baby to have something handmade. And again I will remind anyone reading my blog that patterns to make baby items are a top seller. Hands down I sell more patterns to make baby items than any other thing I sell. My baby mason crochet baby blanket pattern made with Bernat Baby Blanket yarn. Current top selling pattern of mine.
