Hello my wonderful bee friends! It is a bright and sunny day outside and I’m feeling inspired and ready for spring. 3 more weeks till graduation and then it’s back to the work grind for me. In my adventures, I have been seeking something fun and creative to fill my time (and maybe pad the wallet a little!) I am a fairly creative person but I have struggled to find my niche.
This is where you come in. Crafts are so consumer based; a person needs to know what the people want! I have some ideas floating around my head that I think would be fun.
So tell me, would you buy: clothes that had been hand bedazzled or spruced up in some way? Think affordable, adorable and customizable.
Ive also been thinking about maybe trying some sashes. Those things go for a pretty penny and I’d love to be able to help bride have a beautiful sash without spending a zillion dollars. I’m going to make my own sash so that will be a good experiment!
Watcha think bees? Insights, opinions, ideas??

I’m way too old for bedazzled clothing. My issue with clothing is more fit than style.

lalalyanne: The only bedazzled thing I would consider wearing would be bridal sash, if I weren’t already married.
I thought that bedazzlers had gone the way of the Dodo Bird.

lalalyanne: Definitely not bedazzled clothing. I think anything bridal that you could make (headpieces, sashes, veils, etc) would sell.

I think special event pieces (bridal sash, hair pieces for prom, etc) always seem to have a market. For everyday clothes a lot of sparkle may not be the way to go. Of course it’s hard to say without seeing it. Do you have an example picture, something you’ve done or just something similar looking?

I think I may have misrepresented myself!!
Did I say bedazzled? I did.. Okay, fair enough. I get what you guys are picturing and I feel ya.
In retrospect, dazzle isn’t the right word at all. I guess I was picturing something else altogether haha.
I promise not to sew sequin hearts on anything 😉
I meant more like… Unique, hand crafted type lace edging or nifty patchwork or neat stitching or something along those lines. I will try to whip something up when I’m done work 😉

Nothing like that in my wardrobe, but they say there’s a market for everything.

lalalyanne: Hmmm… I’m 30 (to give you a demographic market), and while I probably wouldn’t wear clothes that have what you are describing, I like to have fun with accessories. So maybe a “decorated” handbag, flats, or a scarf would work?
