I love the new colors in your hot pads. We use them all of the time and are really enjoying the green and we have our beige ones for extra dishes. You did such a great job making them and the colors blend so nice. Thanks so much!

The pastel colors are just lovely. I have decided to save them for my new great niece who will be arriving this fall. They are so soft and just perfect for a babies gentle skin. Thanks for always shipping them so quickly~

What would I do without your scrubbies? The blue and yellow set are so colorful and so gentle on your skin. They arrived at the perfect time, in great condition. Thank you for making such a quality product for such great prices.

These are great! I'm lucky enough to have a spouse that does the dishes when I cook and these are his favorite for scrubbing dishes. Thanks for a great product and sending us our preferred colors!

The first step in "making" plarn is to flatten out each used plastic bag to get it ready for cutting. There is a great deal of work involved in upcycling plastic bags into crocheted items like totes, mats, etc.
A dear customer has asked me to crochet a bag to hold the vegetables while cooking with a roast. Pictured is the beginning of this bag. I'm crocheting it from a heavy cotton thread. Custom orders are always welcome. slightly_smiling_face

About

The Crochet Farm Story

It all started with mom. I have the most wonderful mother who can do anything and everything. She taught me to crochet many, many years ago. Through the years I have made a multitude of items, especially for my family, and sold some here and there. It was never anything that I really pursued; I just loved crocheting.

A couple of years ago my husband came down with Lyme Disease and it has been debilitating for him, attacking every part of his body to the point he can no longer work. I was looking for a way to make some extra money because living on disability is extremely difficult. This year a friend who is a soapmaker agreed to carry some of my crocheted products that go with her soaps when she traveled to craft shows. That got me started really working at the crocheting.

And one thing leads to another...

Then this past spring I happened to see a sign and then a note of Facebook about a little market that was starting on Saturdays that was only about 10 miles from my home and had a very small fee for a space. Because I had started making products to have on hand for the craft shows, I decided to try going one Saturday to see if anything sold. I found the most wonderful collection of vendors who all helped each other and got hooked on going.

Every week I noticed that all the other vendors had names for their businesses and I didn't. Looking around, I kept seeing farm names - they all had farm names, so I teasingly said I would be the crochet farm. The more I thought about it, and the more I mentioned the idea to the other vendors, the more we all liked it, so I became The Crochet Farm.

For at least a year my daughter-in-law, Ashley, had been telling me I needed to open an Etsy shop. I had never even looked at Etsy, but she kept telling me to do it, so at the beginning of September I finally broke down and decided to try opening a shop here on Etsy. Am I glad I did!
