I asked this question on Reddit once and about had a fit from all the lovely stories. So what’s the nicest thing anyone’s ever said about a make of yours? I was told, “you don’t know how much comfort it brings me” one day and cried several different ways from joy
So far only my grand daughter. She loves her monster and Carries it with her everywhere,
Next year, my goal is to make some toys for foster kids.
That’s the best kind of compliment, especially from a kiddo @anoswaldoddity. And what a lovely gesture- I wish you much success with your endeavor.
Such a sweet sentiment @cheripai99; it must make you feel warm and fuzzy to know something you created had such an impact.
(Also I love this idea and can’t wait to have my heart melted reading all the lovely things.)
Exactly! I hadn’t made nearly as many things as I have until recently, so hearing about kids in our family enjoying the new toys their tía brings to them just my soul turns into a puddle.
That’s a lovely idea! And isn’t it just the best when kids love your creations? I never could have expected the mental boost their joy gives me.
It wasn’t what she said, because there actually were no words. She sat with her mouth agape and cried. I know in the end there was a “Thank you” and a hug.
The one thing that has stuck with me was the action not the words. I made my teacher a unicorn (she loves them a ton) and she actually ran out into the hall and was showing everybody the unicorn she got
Oh now that’s just marvelous, I would cry back! How lovely.
Yeah, we’re a bunch of babies
I love it!! I took a some of my tiny crocheted makes to a boba cafe and handed them out to the employees just for the heck of it. I was completely unprepared for the level of excitement I received from one who had the biggest smile and loudest thank you. I was walking on clouds for the rest of the day.
So good to read these stories. They really made my day.
My best experience was my only actual sell (because so far I only gave amigurumi to my family and boyfriend).
The girl (actually my co-student) saw my story on Instagram and wanted two gnomes for herself as well…
I had no idea how much money to ask for, so I said x amount. She said that she can only pay online, she will have no cash, I was like okay. When I entered my bank account I was shocked, because she sent double the price. This way it became totally overpriced.
She wrote to me after that I have no idea how much a toy like this can mean to someone and every time I post a crocheted thing on Instagram it is full with joy and passion and she really wanted to appriciate it.
That warmed my heart.
Aw that’s so sweet! It’s so heartwarming when your makes are appreciated by another person for what they are made of.
Growing up with grandmothers that made made all our clothes, and taught me to do the same, which I did with my own kids… The one that always brightens me the most is “It looks like it came from a store”
As a kid I always wanted store-bought clothes, and I guess that kind of sticks with you.
Right? Hearing people say when they think my stuff looks ‘professional’ makes my whole week
