Hi, im a beginner with crochet and i am starting my own little shop called Bella's Kawaii Creations on Etsy. Do you think I would be able to sell the finished product? Thanks,
Isabella

These are so cute! I want to make a whole bunch of them! ^-^

Would it be okay if I sold some at a local craft fair if I do get around to making some? The craft fair would most likely not be until next summer. If allowed, I plan to make little cards that have a url and username to them so people can find your site and other stuff you do.

ANNA said...

Hi, Isabella and Lee Anne. Please feel free to make and sell as many as you want :)
