Lovely Little Crowns

Lovely Little Crowns

Do you remember the sweet little crowns I shared a few posts back?
Well my mom and I teamed up to finish a few more. The little crowns are quickly becoming one of my favorite items.

I love the whimsical touch my mom adds to them with the flowers. They are beautiful and one of a kind made 100% by our two hands. After making these little lady ones our son wanted a crown of his own. Mom had mentioned how cute a feather would she sat down and made me some feathers.

I love how these are unisex and can be done in coordinating colors to match the flowered crowns. Did you notice the Thunder inspired crown? The colors are endless and I am looking for some new felt colors to add to the shop. What colors would you like to see? I asked my mom today if an almost 30 year old could get away with wearing a crown around...and yes, these can be done in adult sizes. ;)

You can find these at Collected Thread located in the Plaza District in Oklahoma City. I am hoping to add them into the shop this weekend...interested in purchasing before then...please shoot me an email.

Cross Over Cowl

Cross Over Cowl

A new cowl has hit the shop and it has become my favorite winter piece.
Meet...the Cross Over Cowl.
Citron Crossover
This piece will keep you warm and cozy while also being very soft and chunky. Blanket scarves are a huge hit right now, this is a wonderful crochet version. It is also perfect for those of you that love the Katniss inspired vest/cowl but aren't to keen on the price. The buttons are made by my husband and I using branches from Apsen trees from our family vacation to Creede, Co.

CreamGold Crossover
My mom says "WOW! Big, Comfortable and so warm.".
My sister says "My favorite design yet.".
I love this cream and gold yarn and want to use it to make everything. My sister and her little baby bump look so warm and cozy don't they?!
Also this could be done to fit the little girl in your life too...perfect Mother/Daughter set.

What color would you want your Cross Over cowl to be done in?

Sweet Little Crowns

Sweet Little Crowns

I was asked to make crowns for a twins birthday party. Jessica asked that the little girls crown have a girlie element. We mulled a few things over but when it came down to making it work a flower seemed like the best fit. I asked my momma to make one out of felt vs. me crocheting one. She made the perfect little flower...and check out the little leaves, there isn't much she can't do.  I am ordering some felt and she will make some flowers that will adorn some crowns and hats to be released in a ready to ship sale in the next couple of weeks. Stay won't want to miss the cuteness. Enjoy!
