Gorgeous Crochet Buys


I have really got into buying direct from artists in the last couple of years.  There is something really lovely about buying from someone who you know has put their own time, effort and love into creating something gorgeous.  When I saw these ickle scrummy shoes on Jacey's Blog Coffee 'n' Crochet I fell in love with them.  Luckily in coincided with a friend having a new baby and another friend's baby turning one very soon so it gave me an excuse to buy them :-) 


Aren't they just the cutest little baby shoes you have ever seen!  They are even ok for babies who are a little older as I have read that you can pop puffy paint on the bottom of them to make them non slip, what a fantastic idea for babies who are at the cruising stage.  The recipients of these little shoes have told me they have had many an admiring comment about them on their little cutey kiddies feet.


Of course then I popped into Jacey's Folksy Shop and just had to buy the above little hat for little Sweetpea, oh and of course a rose brooch for me :-)



The package arrived a few days later and was wrapped in the most lovely birdie tissue paper!  In the parcel was the most wonderful surprise for little Sweetpea, just take a look at that fantastic crochet bag!


Little Sweetpea has adored her hat and bag, here she is watering in seedlings with her hat on , not sure there is any water left in her watering can with the angle she is tipping it in this photo :-)

Another hand made shopping experience that re-confirms why I love buying direct from the artist!  Thanks Jacey :-) x

  1. Those shoes are gorgeous! And the hat looks absolutely lovely - she's obviously a very talented crafter. Hmmm, one of my friends is having a baby in October...
