Meet Heather from PenguinflyDesigns & Enter to Win a Free Scarf

Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
I’m Heather, young-ish woman that acts at times more in her 80s. I crochet, knit (poorly), read, bake, etc. instead of the normal drinking and running wild for people my age. When I’m not crocheting or reading or baking I’m usually at work at the local hospital as a nursing assistant.

Tell us about what you sell:
I have hand crocheted blankets, some newborn photography props, scarves, hats, and anything else I feel like making. I get bored easily, so I like to try out new patterns and items.

Made to Order Custom Granny Hexagon Afghan – $120

What is your favorite thing about creating?
I love learning new crochet stitch patterns. There’s something amazing about all of the different things you can create with the same handful of stitches. The same single, double, triple, etc. can make a whole host of different designs when mixed in new combinations.

Where do you find your inspiration?
I have some vintage crochet books for stitches, I troll Pinterest for things and color combinations I like, and then I just sit down with hook and yarn and see what happens.

Nest Photography Prop – $25

Do you have any selling tips or tricks for other sellers?
Don’t stress too much. Crafts don’t really make much profit, you have to be doing it because you enjoy it because you’ll probably never get rich off of it.

Do you have a coupon code for us?
Sure do! Use code “Megan10” for 10% off of your order!

Where else can we find you?
