So I’m all about side hustles; those awesome ways to make money on the side. You know, the thing you do apart from your full-time job? Why? Because if you work hard enough on it, that side hustle might just become your only job. No more waking up early in the morning and then going home late at night. And that’s why I decided to explore making and selling crafts. I’ve seen so many stories of a person creating one or even a couple items, duplicating them, selling them, and then making a great profit. I thought it’d be a great way to help my readers find a way to create their own side hustle.

So down below I’ve found some awesome ideas from other blogger’s amazing lists of crafts you can make and sell. And I’ve also found some great tips and hacks that you can apply when starting to sell online.

I love sharing with my readers what I’ve found, but I also love linking through to the source where I found the information from. This gives you the opportunity to not only see what I think is cool, but to click through and find even more ideas. So check out what I have and feel free to head to the bottom and take a look at what these other bloggers have to show!

First, I’m going to start off by giving you guys an Etsy tip from the blogger Pauline Cabrera. She gives plenty of advice, but what I thought was a great hack was to offer repeat customers awesome discounts. It’s a great way to gather a loyal following for your brand!

Hold up now, 20 minute tote bags? Ok, this sounds like one of the easiest things you can make and sell. They’re easily customizable and a great starter when trying to make your first sales. Also, they can be marketed to almost any age group since well.. a lot of us need a bag to hold things in and.. they’re pretty darn cute.

Obviously we’re going for super simple, and what better way to start off making something easy but trendy, than with a sunglass bag. You can start marketing them to all of the light eyed people out there.. like me! Seriously, we need a safe place for our sunglasses so they don’t get lost… the sun is brutal on our eyes.

I think the point of this post is making items that are “essentials.” Where they’re not really a need, but so many of us use them that they feel like they are. And since a lot of people have smart phones (*cough* iphones *cough*), this is a great product to make and sell.
