Three years ago, Anna Yast, a mother of two, discovered that she has a hidden skill. She had seen a wonderful toy on the Internet and got really interested in the way it looked. After further research, Anna found out that the toy was made of wool. Consequently, she got curious and started practicing the technique.

Like every beginner, Anna’s toy was not pretty. However, she really enjoyed the process and kept on trying over and over again. Each time, the toy she finished was way better than the previous. Soon enough, her felted birds have been noticed by online customers, and before she knew it, she was already making money out of her business.

Venturing to Business

Anna had no plan at first to earn from doing beautiful toys. However, her friends told her that her works were pieces of arts and they would inevitably become popular. As if fate had intervened, her toys became popular, and they were even shipped to different cities.

The mother of two had already mastered the art of creating felted birds when she accidentally discovered that she can make cute toy bats, too. Her daughter, Masha, requested if she could make her a bat brooch. Anna intended it to be small, but the finished product was too big for a pin. Since she had exerted too much effort on the bat, Anna just decided to make it to a toy. It was then photographed by her daughter and was posted on social media. The caption goes, “Not for Sale!”

Although Anna thought of making more toy bats in the future, she had to set aside it at the moment because she had many felted birds to work on. So, when Anna found out after a week that her Instagram was flooded with messages from customers who supposedly bought her new toy creation from leading online shops, she was naturally shocked to the core.

“Scammer”

While she was flattered at the interest of people in her creation, it was heartbreaking to be called a scammer. Hundreds of people were expecting to receive their bats, and she had no idea about it. The orders were terrifying, and Anna didn’t know how to respond. Creating a bat toy usually takes her 10 days, given that she would spend 12-14 hours on it each day. It would be impossible for her to create bulk with just a short notice.

So, with the help of her sister, Anna reached out to the customers one by one and told them the truth. Other customers decided to keep their orders and wait until she can make them. The hardworking mother was thankful for the understanding and even took the blame for the promise she hadn’t given on customers. However, Anna decided that she would continue working on unique toys as she discovered she can make many people happy.

Right now, Anna dedicates her time on her passion turned business. She asked for the help of her sister to respond to customers’ comments and orders. Moreover, she also decided to show everyone some of her best works at home as a way of showing her appreciation for those who understand and support her.
