Passion and patience in crocheting pays off

MERSING: Having developed a passion for crocheting since her teenage years, and skilfully producing various nylon thread-based craft creations such as bags, tissue boxes, “bunga telur”, and table mats led a housewife to transform her hobby into a thriving home-based business.

According to Rahimah Hassan, 58, observing her mother’s passion for crocheting at that time inspired her to delve deeper into the craft. Her dedication paid off, as she has since become a skilled instructor in the field.

Over the past three years, the mother of six has seen a soaring demand for her craft creations. What is even more impressive is that her clientele extends beyond the local community. She has been receiving orders from Singapore, especially through various online platforms.

“In the beginning, I was just experimenting, but now this is a way for me to earn extra income for my family.

“I also learnt crochet craft techniques by watching YouTube tutorials, particularly for modern crafts,” she told Bernama at the recent Cuti-Cuti Mersing programme held here.

Rahimah, said crocheting requires high skills and patience. Among the most popular items are handbags, with prices ranging from RM40 to RM150.
