New author, new bling

May 1st, 2018 at 08:49 pm

Recently I discovered an author new to me. Her name is Betty Hechtman and she writes cozy mysteries with characters who crochet. There's usually a pretty good twist to the plot and the characters are both believable and likable so I'm enjoying reading through this series.

I read about one of the characters crocheting a granny square bracelet and I then researched it online. Sure enough, there are patterns to make these bracelets so I made one for myself the other night just for fun. I already had the crochet thread so I thought it would make a nice little activity. I then looked on Etsy to see if there were any there and didn't see any, so either they aren't a big hit or maybe something new to hit the scene. I'm curious if people would purchase these at our church bazaar so hopefully you will give me some input. I don't imagine they would go for more than a buck or two, but I have lots of different colors of crochet thread so other than my work, it wouldn't cost me anything to make them.

    Cute! I don't know what the demand would be. It not something I would buy for myself, but maybe a young girl.

    Interesting idea...seems very Victorian. My grandmother crocheted some really cool looking flowers that formed a necklace. Keeping it clean I guess would be an issue.

    I have never seen bracelets, but a lot of my friends with young girls buy headbands similar to this.
