Have you considered starting a work-from-home small business? If you have a crafting background, you may already have the skills and equipment you need to get started right away. If you’re unsure what to expect from that lifestyle, the video below shows one example of a crafting business. In the video, Angela Jasmina makes a set of 16 custom order birthday shirts using heat transfer vinyl.
When you make custom items for paying customers, you’re going to have a different experience than you may have had making them for friends.
You won’t get to choose exactly what you make, and you won’t be able to make any changes because you simply don’t know everyone’s preferences. However, for many crafters, the tradeoffs are worth the rewards. Leaving a traditional job to pursue your own small crafting business may be exactly what your life needs.
Some of the most important advice in the video includes tips on staying organized when handling big orders of custom t-shirts and making the most from the supplies available to you. When you make a commitment to create lots of items for an event like a birthday party, they should all come out identical in quality.
