Crossbody Fringe Purse

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. I found a purse from Wool and the Gang and knew I wanted to make one. There was only one problem...I DON'T knit. So I looked at the picture and decided to design a crochet bag that would be similar.
Crossbody FringeIt turned out better than I had imagined it would. I am so excited to add this fun bag to the shop. It has the perfect bohemian and hippy vibe...just what I was going for. The bag come lined with a coordinating fabric and can have a button or zipper closure.

Little Cottontails

Little Cottontails

I am working on new toys for Collected Thread and felt like these little bunnies would be perfect for Easter. I finished working on these little bunnies during a high school basketball game and didn't get any good pictures of them before I dropped them off. I asked Cohen if he would hold them for me so I could get a good picture to which he replied "Sure, they so cute.".
Crochet BunniesAfter making them my momma had an idea for the little girl bunnies...so stay tuned for that. I am working on some little bunnies to take her way so she can play.
Crochet CottontailsHow cute are their little cotton tails? Can't wait to list these in the shop. Working on a ready to ship sale with these little bunnies. They will be perfect for your littles Easter basket.
What colors would your bunny be?

New Lids Mean New Cozies

New Lids Mean New Cozies

The Mason Bar Company had a sale last week on their lids so I took advantage of it. I had given all but one of my wide mouth lids away so I figured the black and lavender were calling my name. I can't stress enough how great these lids are...check out the bamboo one! That one is next on my list.
IMG_7947The only problem now is to decide which cozy to make first. Playing with the colors and designs has my mind going crazy with new clutch and bag designs as well. Looking forward to some new patterns coming this spring/summer. To celebrate the beautiful weather and my super cute new lids...how about a little something for you.
From now until Thursday at midnight Buy 2 cozies get 1 free.
Mason jar tumblers are my go to cup of choice whether I am at home or on the go.
Which cozy print is your favorite?

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 be...so 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.

Amanda with A Little Bit Wild Couture made this beautiful leopard print beanie. I loved her color choices and who can resist a big pom pom?
