Another NEW design

So last night I decided to try my hand at something new. I wanted to make something different and BRIGHT! So I decided to use up some of my bright Grape yarn. I wanted to make a beanie but add something different to it - so I started crocheting and got this brilliant idea. So I cut and started sewing and this is what I ended up with:

La Mariposa!
An adorable Spring beanie hat with a plaid butterfly applique!

What do you think?

OK. So it has been done before - but not by me! Haha. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! I'm going to make another design tomorrow - maybe I will do a flower applique this time. I'm not sure just yet. Stay posted and you will see! :)

P.S. CLEARANCE SECTION IN MY SHOP HAS BEEN UPDATED! CHECK IT OUT! Everything is 50% off the original price!

New item post.

Just listed 2 brand new Spring designs in my shop. I thought I would dedicate a post to them. I've been working like crazy on creating some new Boy's items, but it's so hard. Boys are hard, they like plain things. Maybe I am just biased because I have a girl and I love making girly things (even if I don't like wearing girly things) haha. I'm not sure, but my shop is seriously lacking in that department. I'm kind of at a loss. I think I need a little inspiration.

The chain scarf is one of the most unique scarf styles I have seen and as of late it has become very popular. I thought it would be nice to design my own and this is the end result. I love it. I think I'm going to make one for myself very soon! This scarf is so versatile, it goes with just about anything. You can dress it up or down - It's chunky but VERY light weight and can be worn throughout the entire year. I also love that it is convertible. You can wear it long as an eternity scarf or wrapped around twice as a cowl or neck warmer. You can wear it with or without the cuff showing. I think I'm going to make a longer version as well for more wearable options.

(now that I know people like it, I'm going to work on some in other colors!)

These are my only 2 updates for now. Thought I'd throw in a post today. Hey, at least I'm not just posting on Friday now!

Check them out in my shop here.

My newest additions:

Happy Thursday!!

I thought today would be a good day to update everyone and post a bit about the newest additions to my shop. My PATTERN SALE is back, you can once again buy ANY 2 PATTERNS FOR $10.00 and that means you save $3.00! So check out my patterns section, I've added 4 NEW patterns and there are a bunch MORE coming! If you don't see one and you want it, please let me know and I will put that one at the top of my priority list!

My CROCHET PATTERNS section can be found here.

I've added the Newborn Cocoon Swaddle Sack! (Which can be seen here.) It's made in this super plush yarn in Sierra. The photo doesn't do it justice at all! It has gorgeous shades of twig, soft rose, and leaf green with honey overtones. It makes me think of a summer garden. It would make a wonderful Spring or Summer photo prop. I definitely can't wait to have it photographed professionally to show off just how pretty it really is!

I've also added my ADORABLE Bunny beanie hat in time for all those Easter photos! It's made is a soft 100% cotton yarn and has these adorable floppy bunny ears attached! I love this hat! I've already received a custom order for 3 of these hats from a photographer, so I will have professional photos of this hat VERY soon! I can't wait to see how well the photos turn out and be able to show it off! In the mean time, check it out here.
