You may have heard me say, “It’s virtually impossible to make money selling amigurumi.” But, with the advent of blanket yarn, I’m eating my words! Blanket Yarn Amigurumi is all the rage and, when you produce some of these quick-to-make stuffed animals, you can make a profit, too!
The problem with selling crocheted stuffed animals at craft fairs is that the products take so long to produce that you’re, typically, not able to sell the items at a price that accounts for both your time and talent. Now, with super bulky blanket yarns, like Bernat Blanket Yarn, you can make super-sized amigurumi that will delight your customers and your profit margin.
If you’re searching for items to make for spring or summer craft fairs, these patterns will do the trick, too. Basically, blanket yarn amigurumis are a must make – try at least one for your next fair.
Here are some patterns I’ve found that will be hot sellers.
This soft and squishy octopus is the perfect first gift for any baby. With tentacles that mimic the umbilical cord this stuffy is perfect for a preemie who needs some comfort when she's away from mommy.
And if you didn’t find exactly what you were looking for here, just grab your favorite amigurumi crochet pattern and substitute blanket yarn for worsted weight yarn and you have the perfect product to sell at craft fairs all year ’round!
