Some years ago I took up felting. I created felted bags. It took me a year to master my skills because I started from the bottom. A lot of tutorials of famous designers were really helpful and I created my first clSome utches, shoppers and cross body bags. The next step was to learn more about ecommerce. Eventually I succeeded in selling my handmade goods. I used to have orders from France, the USA etc.
My mom likes knitting. She took up knitting clothes for dogs. I helped to open an account on Instagram. Now she is good at photographing and as a pensioner she has some money from her hobby. By the way, it helps her to be sociable and to develop herself.
My neighbor who is a single mother bakes awesome cakes, they are masterpieces. Contact her if you need a cake for any event. She even does not have to advertise herself. All people from home chat know her.
