Fruits or FRUiTS?  
It's me again! I made a strawberry beanie this time! Next up is a kiwi scarf, and then onto a peach hat and a blueberry hat. I am also in the process of making Baby the Stars Shine Bright-inspired white bunny ears beanie, along with a black Hyde messenger bag with this design on it and a lacy Deery Lou tote! AND, as if that wasn't enough, I am also making BJD accessories! Jazz up your dollfies with my cute hats, bags, and scarves! Other things that I seem to be mass producing now are Ai Yazawa's Happy Berry items, including Miwako's berry backpack, logoed scarves, a berry handbag, and little berry pins! And my amigurumi soot balls of Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away are still working and they can't be bothered with right now ♥...



If you are interested in any of these soon-to-come items, or want to keep up to date on everything, you can sign up for my mailing list! Just comment with your e-mail address and I will screen the comment, as well as add you to the list!

If you are interested in commissioning, ordering, or suggesting an item, please read on under the cut.


My methods of payment are cash, Paypal (cc AND non-cc), and TRADES! I love trades. Partial trades, please, since I need money x3!

The causes this time are:
- My trip to Cambridge University next summer! I'm 16 and hope to go to this prestigious college in England for a four week trip of pure awesomeness. It's a whopping $8,000. I hope to get a grant, but it would always do to have back-up money!
- My Tae Kwon Doe classes. I KNOW my parents can't afford it, but they are scrounging up money to let me take them anyway, so I want to try to pay it for myself, as well as for gas! It's $75 a month.
- A camera that is not as crappy as this one? Hopefully a Canon Digital Rebel XT, which is like $500. Eep, I know! But it's lovely. And I have a Pentax K1000 with a HUGE lens, if anyone is interested. These were discontinued in 1996?
- To make everyone happy ^0^!

My wishlist is:
- A wig-holder? A bust? A head? I don't know what you call them. I want one to put my beanies on when I take pictures.
- iPod shuffle
- Petticoats/suspenders/knee-high boots 9/corsets
- My big wishlist with lots of books, manga, music, movies, and random crap is here.
- Anything you have! Show me your lists!

If you didn't find anything here, check out the rest of my selling journal! It's not crafty, but I sure have a lot of clothes!: joa_stuff~!

Ready-made items:


Kiwi beanie! See more pictures here. Note: This has been sold, but I can remake one in a snippy for $30!


Watermelon pencil case! Or a make-up bag, a clutch, or just something to stuff a pair of dirty socks in (Eww...). See more pictures here. Note: This has been sold, but I can remake one in a snippy for $10!

For commissions:
I will be taking commissions for crocheted items! Unique and specific commissioned pieces cannot be remade, but original pieces may. Right now, I am experienced in the making of amigurumi, bags, hats, and scarves. Those are just the things I have tried though, you can suggest anything, such as skirts, Mary Janes, decorative pins, belts, potholders, etc.

You will have to pay extra for all items that I would have to go out and buy, such as stuffing for the amigurumi, lining fabric for the bags, extra yarn, or a special size hook.

Pricing:
Prices are relative! Please keep in mind that I spend hours, yarn, and a lot of twisting of my wrists to get these things done. A piece that is commissioned is, of course, going to cost more than a piece I have already made. I like for my buyers to suggest their prices because people have different budgets and different trades to offer me! However, as for average pricing, I have gone to other crafty crocheters to see what they sell their things for, which is pretty pricey and sometimes ridiculous. Here is an average range of my costs per ready-made items. The ACTUAL price depends on if the item is special, is embellished in any way, and how big it is! All of these INCLUDE shipping:

Beanies/scarves: 15$-35$ (Beanie and scarf set for 50$!)
Amigurumi: 5$-30$
Pins: 5$-10$
Skirts: 20$-40$
Socks: 8$-30$
Mary Janes: 10$-20$
Purse/messenger bag/hobo bag/handbag/shoulder bag: 15$-45$
iPod/cellphone cozies/coin purses: 5$-10$
Pencil cases/make-up bags: 10$
Other: Comment and ask :]!


If you accidentally damage an item made by yours truly, I will fix it or make you a new one for half price ^-^~!

Shipping and Return Policy:
- For commissions, this is how it goes:
  • You request your item and we work out a deal
  • I work on the commission and give you pictures of the finished product(s)
  • If you like the photos, you ship out
  • I receive your payment (or your end of the trade) for the commission and ship out to you immediately
- For normal orders, buyer always pays (or sends their end of the trade) first. I worked hard to make these items, so I can't risk a deadbeat, I'm sorry. Even if you have 999 positive feedback, I still would need money to ship out with.

- For a combination of the two, follow directions as if it were a commission.

- If your item doesn't fit or is damaged (only if it is WHEN IT ARRIVES), you can send it back to me (you pay shipping) and I can either refund your money, repair the item, or make you a new one. If you want me to do one of the last two, I will pay the shipping to send back to you.

The bag I am making is 9 inches wide and 10 inches tall, but I can make it any size. It has turned out to be VERY hard to make, so I am saying $40, but I am taking trades. The girl who requested it gets it for $30, since was our agreement before I started making it, but I'm having to switch yarn every five seconds and it's so crazy!

Haha, you are now lovingly added to my mailing list and will receive pictures of it when it is done! I have progress pictures now if you are interested, and here is the pattern I made myself to use (this is of the flap).

She has requested that I use small white buttons as the closure, but I can do velcro or just have the flap, maybe even those snap buttons...I am thinking of buying some.
lordstarfish on August 4th, 2006 05:40 pm (UTC)
The bag sounds really awesome, I'll wait to see pictures of the finished product before I decide anything ^__^

And your mailing list is great, you make the cutest stuff in the world xD
