A Man and His Cowl

Recently I asked a friend of mine "Hey, if I make you something would you rather R2D2 or Darth Vader?"
My friend responded with "depends on what it is".
A guy chimed in "probably a cowl" as he snickered.

You'll have to stay tuned to the Star Wars item coming soon but no, it wasn't a cowl.
HOWEVER...I did make one for my daddy and I must admit, he looks very handsome in it.

I know there are many men who this might not be their style.
It takes a rather manly and dapper fella to pull of something that most might consider "girly". I however find this piece to be the PERFECT unisex piece. It is double layered so is very soft and warm.
It has been tested in Chicago and I do believe Manuel was a fan of his that his wife bought him last year.

This was my daddy's gift for Christmas. When he received it, it was only half done and he handed it back to me knowing that even if it takes an extra week or so it would be worth the wait.

This hat has become my favorite hat to make. The color options are endless and I wanted something that matched but wasn't solid navy. The hat pattern is done by my friend Liz over at Playin' Hooky Designs, it is the avalanche beanie.
My dad wears a pair of burgundy pants that I really like on him so I took inspiration from those pants and the sweater he wears with them. This hat is a very warm hat and is perfect for those cold winter nights when he is helping with food boxes at church.

The Not Your Guy's Cowl would make an excellent Valentine's Day gift. 

Thank you daddy for not batting an eye when I give you half made gifts and for being patient while I create special pieces for you. Thank you for encouraging my dream day in and day out and always wearing what I make you.
I love you!

Scrappy Love, A Few Available in Time for Christmas

A few years back I made my mom and I cowls out of scraps. These cowls have been loved and used many times since then. When the new Zip-It Cowls come out I thought a scrappy one would be cute.
You all have loved it and so I thought I'd do a scrappy braided infinity scarf.
Scrappy Braided ScarfIt turned out more beautiful than I imagined it would.
Scrappy Braid Infinity Scarf Wrapped
The fun thing about these pieces is that no two are alike. They may have a few of the same colors but it all just depends on what I have on hand. This piece is an Oikos Handmade original and is sure to go with everything you wear this winter.

Scrappy Love

Crossbody Fringe Purse

Fringe is everywhere you look right now. You can find fringe on shoes, kimonos, clothing or bags. You name it and you can find it.
