What To Crochet When You’re Bored
Are you bored and looking for something to do?
We first discovered crocheting when we were kids on the set filming our first movie.
A co star’s Mother was crocheting while watching her son do take after take.
She said it calmed her nerves and gave her something productive to do since when she was done, she had a beautiful new item she could use or gift.
We decided to compile the ultimate list of quick, easy, and useful Crochet boredom busting projects to make, gift, or sell.
Majority of the patterns take minutes to make, are free, trendy, and small enough to whip out of your purse or bag when you need stress relief or something productive to do while you wait.
They make the perfect gifts for family and friends, are in demand items you can sell, and can be used in gift baskets and as stocking stuffers for all ages.
You’ll never be bored again!
