Featured Handcrafter-Baby Toes

We are going to be featuring different handcrafters throughout the weeks ahead. Our first one is Christy Craig. The name of her shop is Baby Toes which was inspired by her babies' toes.

She offers custom hand knitting, painting, and sewing. It is all handcrafted and made on the South Shore of Massachusetts, USA.

Here are a few samples:

I've Lost My Head Pumpkins: Hand painted on dried gourds.

Crocheted Wreath: Break with traditional red and green, add a little flash. Orange and black for Halloween, spring, or show your school colors! Made with pure cotton, stuffed with polyester fiberfill. 19" in diameter x 4" thick.

Hand-stitched ornaments: From calico and various fabrics, little stuffing, beaded eyes and bows for girls. Hangs with a raffia loop. Family, professions, sports/hobbies, animals, & holiday.

Custom Slippers: Crocheted, stuffed, ribbon/string closure, nonslip bottoms. Jingle bell flowers for girls. Kids to adult sizes: Any animal you can think up!

Little Button Scarf: Made with Italian yarn, merino wool, microfiber and cashmere. Button closure. Choose your color combination.

Custom Painted Announcements: Remember your wedding in unique fashion, your church watercolored onto your invitation. Extend the idea to birth announcements.

She also makes custom sweaters for children. You can email her at cc.craig@comcast.net for a custom sweater worksheet.

Advertising Co-op

Our Advertising Co-op has just begun. For $10 a year your banner and button will be featured on our website www.shabbysheepyarns.com. We will use the money to purchase bigger advertising opportunities like on Facebook, Ravelry, and Knittinghelp.com and eventually magazines. It is a way to stretch everyone's $10 as far as it can go and keep crafting alive in this economy.

We will also be featuring different handcrafters and doing giveaways on the blog. If you are interested please email shabbysheepyarns@yahoo.com
