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!

Grammy Triangle Purse

Grammy Triangle Purse

If you've been following me for a while you know I adore granny squares and have used them in many of my items. My favorite piece just might be my granny square clutch, or maybe the granny square cowl. Either way there is a new granny square item in the shop and I have been so excited to share it with you.
I found the inspiration on pinterest and showed it to my mom. She liked it and wanted one for herself. So I grabbed the colors I thought would lend a beach-y yet bohemian vibe and began creating. Oikos Handmade Grammy Purse
After making the piece and sending my mom a few pictures she named it the Grammy Triangle Purse. My mom is grammy to 3 little boys and the name was the perfect fit.

This purse is $10.00 off until I am able to get pictures of it being used.
