Im just discovering pinterest and i find stuff I like but when I click on it it takes me to etsy (which I've never actively looked at so I have no real idea what that is either..) and I have to pay for it. Wth? Is nothing free on Pinterest?

Pinterest is just a place you 'pin' stuff you like so you can look at it or buy it later... they dont own any of the stuff on peoples boards...

It's a pinning site, so if you see something you like while you're browsing the internet you can "pin" it to a board on Pinterest so you can find it later. You were clicking on pins that are from etsy, which is basically Amazon for handmade stuff.
You can pin anything so you could find recipes or different craft ideas as well.

I found crochet stuff, and Minnie Mouse things for DD2s birthday but everything I clicked on took me to etsy. I want to make the hat not buy the finished product lol I though it would take me to the pattern or recipe!

you can search for patterns, just put 'minnie crochet hat pattern' and a bunch of stuff should come up, you may have to pay for the pattern but i imagine there'll be a free one somewhere on pinterest, just have to search a bit :)



btw i did a minnie party for my daughters 3rd birthday
