A slipper you will not want to take off. I have worn mine daily since making them. They are so comfortable.

The pattern is by  Pattern Paradise and it is a jewel. The slippers are so comfortable you will never want to take them off. The pattern is a “Breeze”.    It works up fast and exactly to size. The sole is one you will never have trouble making and the top of the slipper always makes up to size and fits like a glove.

Baby Loveys – kids love them

Today I made my very first baby lovey. I made the Baby Lamb Lovey by Bowtykes.  As soon as the hooks hit the yarn, I was in love with them also.

What is a Lovey?  I hear some of you saying that.  A lovey is a very special blanket that a young child becomes attached to. It gives them a certain sense of security.  My grandson, who is 7, still carries his Spiderman blanket around. That is how we know he is tired.  Maybe you have seen small children carrying their blankets around and wondered why.  Well, now you know.

This is the Baby Lamb Lovey I made  and the Etsy listing I posted.  So if you are interested in securing your little one one of these adorable loveys, just click on my link below…..

Perfect for you little one

Perfect for you little one

The Baby Lamb Lovey is made with your baby or young child in mind.  Your little one will be so happy to find this cuddly lovey in his or her Easter basket on Easter morning right along with the other little goodies.

Not only is the lovey good for Easter, but any holiday, birthday, baby shower, or just for everyday use.  No matter what day it is your child will adore his/her new lovey.

I hand made the Baby Lamb Lovey with one of the softest yarns available and a whole lot of love. It is made with a granny square blanket attached to the lamb lovey head.  The pictured lovey is made in pink but is definitely customizable to your specific color request.  This pink lovey has a heart and flower ribbon tied around the neck.  This ribbon is completely your choice. Just let me know in the notes section upon checkout.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:  the lovey is machine washable on delicate; machine dryable on low.

The Blood, Sweat and Tears of a Crocheter

 H1618547_10200615002857979_1371999327_n (1)ave you ever wondered why crocheters think their products are so special? Why do they charge so much? I could make that……. Well, you haven’t made it and most likely you won’t. A crocheter pours his/her heart into each and every item they produce. A lot of blood, sweat and tears goes into making that special item for you.

First, the appropriate yarn must be chosen. It means a great deal to the artist making your garment that the yarn speak to her. If she buys something she thinks will work instead of what will work, you can guarantee that the project will be ripped out withing a couple of rows. The reason……….it isn’t speaking to the artist.

Secondly, we want to make sure that our products are exemplary. That their are no faults, mistakes, that the end product looks as good completed as we see it in our mind. Only the best will go out our clients who are the soul of our businesses.

Lastly, but not leastly, we care. We care about each and every one of the people that order from us. We want to know that they are happy with the product they have received. It makes us proud and happy when we get an email that says “I absolutely adore it”. Those few words inspire us to continue with what we do and why we do it.1781874_10200615002577972_881954945_n

So, the next time you question why something is priced “so high”, please remember the blood, sweat, and tears that go into making that item for you.

 

Until next time,

Have a Crochet Kinda Day
