Bag & Bows

I am loving all these new patterns I have tried! This week/weekend I was able to whip up two new items!

The first is something that I absolutely love! I will be making myself one.

Flower Clutch Purse

Made with thicker, study yarn and lined with an adorable matching fabric. It is perfect for the girls night out or when you just need to carry a few things.

Here take a look... I dare you not to want one :)

The second item is equally as cute and for your feet. You know that winter is coming and it will be time to pull out some slippers so why not have adorable ones you are proud of!

Bow Tie Slippers

These are made with super soft yarn and adorned with a bow tie and fancy strap.

Shop Etsy for Both of these new items!

These are not your ordinary granny squares! Three squares sewn together with a sole added and perfectly wearable!

Soft and wonderful slippers with an added flair! The edges are crocheted with fuzzy fun yarn. They are fashionable and comfortable!

Which ones are your favorites?

What Boys are Made of...

So a friend of mine asked me to make some slippers for her two adorable little boys and we thought hard about what to "top" them with since boys and pink flowers don't mix. What we came up with turned out adorable! Frogs & Turtles :)

How cute is this turtle, I think the eyes just make it! :)

Some other ideas we had were - balls (basketball, baseball, etc.) lizards and bugs. Any other suggestions??

I am also linking up to The Dainty Daisy's On your Hook Party!

For Head and Feet

I have two new items/creations to showcase and both I am super excited about!

For Head...

The new Ear Flap Hat! So warm and cozy and perfect for the long winters. It has ear flaps on each side to keep your ears toasty. The straps are braided and long enough to tie or be left undone.

Only $18 - available in all sizes, newborn through adult.

For Feet...

The much anticipated Adult Slip-ons! I showed off the Kids ones last week and had to make some for us grown ups too. They are so cute and cozy and even better that they are easy on and easy off! What a great treat for feet :)

Any Adult Sizes, any colors!

Also, my Brother-in-law is a huge hunter so he wanted something warm but something he wouldn't get shot in, haha. So I made him this bright orange beanie that has adorable (can I say that about a man's hat??) cable stitching on the edge! Hope he loves it!

(sorry about the bad lighting on this picture)


I am participating in Gussy's Holiday Gift Guide so be sure to check out her site on Nov. 1 through 3. I have a button on the side for easy access as well!
