Here are a couple custom orders I’ve done recently. I love getting custom orders because they give me a chance to make things in colors that I don’t always think of for myself. Cream or white isn’t a color I wear in hats really but I thought this one looked so pretty! It’s the Avenue C Slouchy Hat in cream.
And here’s a pair of Goddess Barefoot Sandals in black. I love any of the barefoot sandals in black or with black around the edge, in the case of the multicolored ones, because I can wear them with my black sandals and it kinda looks like they’re a part of them.
If you’re interested in having me custom make something for you, my custom shop is here. And of course if you’d like the make it yourself, the Avenue C Slouchy Hat Pattern is available on Ravelry. And the Goddess Barefoot Sandals are a free pattern here on the blog! :)
I’m finally ready to show you the next pattern I’m working on! I know I said that this would be my first bag pattern, but I’m just not feelin’ it. There’s something about it that I wanna change but I can’t decide what. So I’ve moved on to this bag which I’m pretty happy with! I think it’ll look way better once there’s a liner in it and I also have some ideas for embellishing it so it won’t look so plain. What do you think of it so far?
I came up with a way to add sparkle to any yarn (this is just Lion Brand Cotton Ease and I added the sparkle). I filmed a tutorial video so I can share my technique with you but I still need to edit it.
I’m working on a second one that will be larger. The only thing that I wasn’t happy with on the first one was that it was too small. When I fill it with stuff, the bottom of the star kinda becomes the bottom of the bag, which I don’t want. So I’m adding more rounds to make it bigger. I really want the star centered so it’s still visible when the bag is full.
This is a pair of Gypsy Barefoot Sandals I made as a custom order earlier this week.
My mom actually made this hat, not me! But it’s pretty so I had to show you! It’s a Waffle Cone Slouchy Hat made with Red Heart Curly Q yarn. It’s a really stretchy yarn which is awesome for this hat because it makes it slouch really well!
I love the texture of this yarn and it comes in a couple colors that I really like! I haven’t tried it yet but I’m gonna have to!
Here is some more barefoot sandal inspiration from my pattern testers! This is part two. In case you missed the first part, you can see it here! :)
