Day 28: Do you do any other crafts besides crocheting? What are they, and did learning to crochet come before or after learning these other crafts?
I've always been into making things ever since I was a toddler. I would collect old cereal boxes and Fairy liquid bottles etc to make stuff from.
One craft I really love, apart from crocheting, is sewing/painting canvas tote bags. Pretty specific I know lol! I went through a phase back in 2005/2006 of painting these Ebay bought calico bags and selling them. I once got about £11/$18 for one of my hand painted bags! It's a craft I have just recently taken up again, but now instead of buying the bags ready made, I bought a meter of calico fabric and am making my own, with lining.
I also like general sewing (I like making skirts, bags, cushion covers), jewellery making and even had a go at Felting. But no matter what I try, I always end up going back to crocheting!
PS - EssHaych has gone to Cyprus! So if I don't reply to your comments don't think I'm ignoring you, I'm just busy relaxing on a sun lounger! ;p The remainder of these 30 Days posts are pre-written :)
