The weather has finally turned cold here in New Jersey which means it is time for hats, scarves and gloves. These items are the bulk of my business which people love to purchase a new one every year. I prefer to use soft yarn that are gentle to the skin which is what makes my items so popular among my local clients.
Being pregnant with this baby girl has made me want to make more and more baby items. I have been continuing to make headbands which are so cute but with the months getting cold, I have started to make baby girl crochet hats. I have been using the same Mandala yarn with the unique color changes so each hat is different. Currently, I have 2 hats in size 0-6 months to choose from in purple shades and a pink/purple combination. These make wonderful baby gifts or a Holiday gift.
One item that people always ask me to make are baby girl headbands because they just look so cute especially in photo shoots. The only part that I never liked were, if I made them with ties they would come untied or if I made them with a button then I had to make multiple holes for grow with the baby. After last years, Messy Bun hat craze, I decided to use hair ties to make the headbands grow with the baby because they would stretch over the head and then have a secure, snug fit.
Since I can never get rid of even the smallest amount of yarn, I am making these headbands out of leftover yarn from other projects. Lately, I have been using the different multi-colored yarns like Lion Brand Mandala and Bernat Pop so no 2 headbands will be alike. Not to say I can’t use solid colors and make them that way which will probably happen in the future.
Now I can’t wait until my live model is born and I can put some of these headbands on her to show off! If you are interested in looking around my online shop please feel free to click the link or pictures and browse ar
With the holidays coming and the other part of my business life being my handmade business, I decided to make Wednesdays my day to feature different creations from my online boutique. My goal is to help people find gifts that could work for someone they are shopping for or inspire them to create a version of their own.
One of my most common request from a customer is something baby related but women are always having babies and will be having babies. Before I was pregnant, I began crocheting (yes I am a hooker) a variety of baby items because they sell so fast with people looking for something cute, soft and unique to give as a gift to a new mama. I came across a crochet lovey and was inspired to make different animal theme loveys. Some of these have been special requests that I made an extra for my shop which some of my best-selling creations came as a request from a customer!
Since being pregnant, I have been inspired to make other baby loveys so I have some other ones in the works which I can’t wait to debut. If you are interested in purchasing a lovey feel free to browse my online boutique Kaella Boutique or please feel free to pass this along to someone who might be interested in a unique gift.
As an artist/artisan, I have learned that nothing is truly our own creation but an idea that came before us and we just worked it to fit into our imagination. If you look at most art, those works are a form of someone else’s idea that the artist tweaked or revamped to make it their own. So please feel free to be inspired by my creations!
Be on the look out on Wednesdays, as I will be featuring different products that make great gifts from my online boutique, Kaella Boutique, that can help in giving a loved one, friend or boss a unique, handmade present.
