Cute Cozy (and a special)

Cute Cozy (and a special)

Well hello friends!!
Life happened and the blog took a back seat for a while. We enjoyed our vacation and end of summer activities before school started.
Some pretty fun things are happening here with Oikos Handmade and I am so excited to get into the groove of things and tell you all about them.
First up a new cozy that was designed for a friend. She is getting married next month and wanted cozies for her bridesmaid gifts.
So I came up with the flower cozy.
Flower CozyI love the simplicity of this cozy and am excited at all the color options. From the cozy color, to the flower color, to the beads...the color options are endless.
What colors would you pick?

From now until tomorrow at midnight all cozies are buy 3 get 1 free, no coupon needed. Leave a message in the notes to seller at checkout for which one you would like for free. If you want to put in a custom order just shoot me a message and I will get you taken care of.
Enjoy and stay tuned for all the fun that is to come.

Mermaid Tail Blanket

Mermaid Tail Blanket

I always say I love custom requests...but I truly do love custom requests!
Kayla had sent me a message about making a mermaid tail for her little girl Blakely. They are going to the beach in a few weeks and she thought it would make a cute photo prop. After talking things over we decided on a blanket vs. a cocoon so that it can be used more.
Mermaid Tail and shell top When talking we went for blues and greens and the little shell top was done in cream with a gold threading running thru it. It will make the perfect photo pop, Halloween costume (for those in a stroller or wagon) and just a cute blanket to help cultivate a beautiful imagination.

I see a beautiful adult mermaid blanket in the future for my momma and a merman tail for my son.
Let's just all be mermaids!

Mermaid tails are on sale until Saturday at midnight, you can find the prices on Instagram or Facebook. To order you can email me at oikoshandmade@gmail.com to discuss the colors. These will NOT be added to the shop and will not be sold during fall/winter due to busy season. You have 6 months until Christmas and these would make the perfect gift for the mermaids/mermen in your life.
Enjoy!

Granny Square Apron

My friend Shelley had seen this granny square apron and asked me to make her one. She picked these beautiful colors out, shades of pink with an aqua blue. It turned out more beautiful than I imagined. If you crochet head on over to the Tangled Happy blog for the pattern. I am looking forward to making more in different colors and different granny square styles. Enjoy!
