What is your niche?

Recommended Posts

I love making toys. I make lots of holiday themed ami's through out the year to send for the various holidays. I also make doll's clothes quite a bit. I do make dishclothes, afghans, and an occasional scarf, but my primary "zone" is toys.

I mostly crochet for charity. I make baby afghans (full size and preemie) and I make a lot of prayer shawls. I like to make cotton dish/wash cloths too.

My niche I would have to say is Thread Crochet designer. I love designing items in thread or fine yarn. I have designed over 100 doilies, numerous shawls, runners, and more. I love the feel and look of the stitches done in thread.

I guess my niche would be "bags" of all sorts. I have made many bags, purses and totes of all sizes. I am also enjoying knitting the scarves with the newer ruffle making yarns.

I finally figured out that I'm NOT a "yarn-aholic" but a "pattern and notion-aholic."  I love working with thread, but I really like working with almost anything that's "string."  I love things that are a challenge.  I love texture over items that have multiple colors...I love making wearables and accessories the best.  I canNOT leave a pattern alone...most of the time I tweak to suit my wants and needs.  While I like challenging, high end type of designs, I'm not above swooning over kitchy patterns.  There are a lot of really cute things out there.  I love the bacon and egg scarf I saw years ago...but then I also love designs by Doris Chan and Kathy White...

 

In short I love crochet...I love to make things...

I'm a bi-polar crocheter! I love quick projects: dishcloths, scarves, head bands, small toys... and I love afghans! Especially giant granny squares. I love the repetitive nature of the afghans, great for when you just want to put your brain in neutral and simply exist. I like the quick projects for when I need to feel productive and like I got something accomplished. It really does help jump start me for whatever else I may have to do that day. (Well... most of the time... except when I get caught in the trap of "I'll just start one more of these..."  :eek )

I don't really have a "niche" - it's just whatever I find I understand the pattern for, or whatever I feel like making right then!!

I love to crochet novelties: tissue covers, unusual potholders, pin cushions, dolls (Mickey & Minnie, Raggedy Ann & Andy), play food, novelty booties and I just crocheted my first bed pillow doll.  Over the years I crocheted my share of afghans and hats and scarves for charity but "out of the box" creations are my niche.

My favorite thing to crochet is afghans. Color and texture is what I love to experiment with, but I have to ease my way back into it. I'm just starting to crochet again after my stroke. I am working on an afghan now and I want to tackle some UFOs after that. Hopefully, I will get back to crocheting hats and booties for newborns at my local hospital too. Little by little, step by step. :)

I don't have a specific niche, but at the moment, it seems to be that I can't get away from making baby items! I've done 3 blankets, a few bibs, and 2 pairs of booties in the last 5 months, and haven't touched any of my other WIP's. I really do love giving my items away as gifts, but part of me is also ready to get back to working on my own projects!

At first mine was hats. I love hats, the uglier the better and boy did I make some ugly hats. Recently though it has been Filet crochet. I can't get enough of it.

Mine would be anything pet related :) Clothes, hats, dresses, etc. I'm a sucker for a chihuahua in a dress!

I think my niche is really big projects. I say this  because I seem to always be making big ones, for example afghans, jackets, snuggles etc.

i love making a lot of things. mainly stuffed things lol. i make a bunch of character copyright stuff...i need to stop doing that. I try to make as much different stuff as i can, dolls, hats, swiffer covers, purses, clothing, toilet paper covers. i want to make everything...but theres no way im going to make a blanket. too much yarn, too much time, too repetitive and boring for me.
