About the Creator!
Hi, I'm Chriselle but other people know me as itsdapanders or ChriselleDapanders. I'm a very passionate high school student who loves to make crafts. I love the idea of making my own creations. Whenever I saw a project or craft i always wanted to do it.
I consider Itsdapanders as a family business and all my friends and family help to create all my what-nots. If it weren't for them I wouldn't have ever gotten anywhere. Once you have an itsdapanders item also consider yourself a pander too!
MY CROCHETING JOURNEY
Well, for some reason I woke up one day with this desire to learn how to crochet. I know it's kind of weird for a 13 year old to want to crochet, but wanted to learn so badly. Since I was already very crafty, we went to Michaels very often. Every time I went, I would beg my parents to buy me a simple crochet hook and a skein of yarn, but they always said no. They didn't want to waste money on something I probably couldn't do. I was so determined that I even tried to make my own crochet hook and use embroidery floss as yarn. Finally after a year of asking, I decided to just drop the crochet hook and yarn into the basket. Right when I got home I tried to crochet and.... I totally failed. All my stitches were uneven and I couldn't hold the hook right. After lots and lots of practice, I was able to make a beanie within an hour. Ever since I got the hang of it, I've been making my own beanies and my own designs.
HOW MY BUSINESS STARTED
One day I came home from school and I discovered a new way to make a brim on my beanies. I thought it looked cute so i decided to post it on my Instagram account. Surprisingly people loved it and asked me if I were selling them. That's when my business started. My very supporting family and friends also decided to take this journey with me and this business and I'm so thankful for them ♥
WHY YOU SHOULD BUY FROM ITSDAPANDERS
All my items are affordable and handmade. They weren't made because i want money but because this is my hobby. As for my mom, quality is everything, so before anything is shipped to you, it has to get passed my mom. I know this might sound cliche but all of my creations are made with love ♥.
NOT ONLY BEANIES!
I won't only be selling beanies but I'll be selling my other creations as well :). For example, Itsdabunnies. I just came up with Itsdapanders Beanies because that's what i started with.
Don't be afraid to try new things. If somebody tells you you can't do something, don't let that stop you. You can do anything as long as you put your mind to it. Haters gonna hate. Go out there and be creative
