[VLOG] CROCHET CRAFTER SHOPPING GUIDE in Cebu: Trapo, Ibon, to Fiberfill, and All of the Above

It was a random meetup with the hooker friends, and when crocheters are together, alams na where they would most likely end up.

So @sugbo_sinulid wanted to have refill of fiberfill for the knockers, and supplies for birthday giveaways, while @tomatofire_crochets wanted to buy supplies for her parent’s wedding anniversary’s giveaways. It’s giveaway season! =) And, I, am just happy to tag along.

Here’s a video compilation of snapshots of the places we went to in the downtown area of Cebu to get crochet and other related crafting supplies.

For reference, we went to:

Cebu Progress for fiberfill and bag clasps

Prime Basics for charms, key rings, tassel accessories

Modern Best Modiste for yarns

Retail Therapy of a Budget Heart-Evangelista: Freedom Park, Carbon, Cebu

I don’t know how to describe Freedom Park, Carbon. It’s part of being a Cebuana; you don’t frequent going there but you know that if all things fail, there is Carbon. (Freedom Park is a section of Carbon. And, I don’t know how exactly huge is Carbon.)

Cebu has no fancy huge crafting supply store but we have Freedom Park, Carbon. So if you’re into crafting or making, it’s on top of your vocabulary.

Every time I would be looking for a material so hard to find, chances are friends would tell you to go to Freedom Park or Carbon. Or, if you show something you think you got for a low price, chances are friends would tell you that you can get it at much lower price at Carbon. Chances are I would also give you the same reply on where to find stuff in Cebu.

So here’s a day of I and @yourfavoritethingsbyhija looking for something rare and low because we’re budget Heart Evangelista.

Vlog: A Day in the Life of NOT Heart Evangelista

If you want to date a crocheter (or a crafter), find out where in Cebu you can bring her/ him in the latest vlog.

This place is a big part of my childhood. I guess all the 90s and pre-90’s generation knows this place very well. Then, new “hip” areas are sprouting in Cebu City, this area has became less and rare part of my Cebu life. Until I started crocheting, it brought me back again to this place. =)

The things a crocheter would go to just to get her yarn fill. I made this video last December 31, 2018; I realized that I spent the last day of my 2018 haunting for yarns in a stormy weather. I should have an award for this! =)

The video is not so clear but nevertheless, ENJOY! =)

So I finally created a youtube channel. It took me some time because I realised that I’m not that millennial enough. I do have old youtube account, but I wanted to make a “branded channel” but there are just so many buttons and settings. Anyhow, here’s the first upload…

To check my old 1-minute #gantsilyoserye videos, you can check hashtag #gantsilyoserye in instagram, or click here >>.

Hopefully, I could at least make 1 short video a month on top of my #WIPS!
