Snow hats!

Fair isle style hats are so cute! In this one I wanted to have a snow-like effect on the bottom. Imagine this hat and ski slopes! Fun! 🙂

More about this hat here.

This hat was made using crochet so it’s faux fair isle. I’m very happy to start designing and listing fair isle hat in my shop.

Beanie Hats

Beanie hats are meant to highlight your beauty. So the simpler the beanie hat the better. After all this is about you! 🙂

I also like hats with pom poms .. don’t get me wrong. However, I really like the nice simple look of beanie hats. They are relaxed but have great personality!

In terms of this one, I made it using a simple, consistent crochet stitch. Then, the yarn is great too! This yarn is my favorite for making beanie hats. This is a super soft wool blend which makes it very comfortable to wear.

This beanie hat is also available in almost every color. More details here.

Miniature Doll House Toy Accessories

Bubble Gum Blue Pink Colors Bow Headband LPS toy accessories

My daughter enjoys her miniature doll house. Her favorite past-time is to dress the toys in all kinds of different outfits. She can spend hours in pretend play with her toys and accessories. She also makes videos of them. Well, this is how the idea of creating and designing accessories for miniature toys was born. It’s been a lot of fun! 🙂 Needless to say, my daughter is at the center of my inspiration for these. She is my companion every time I have needle and thread, yarn, and buttons around. She is ready to help and give me ideas, every time! She does not want to miss in the fun of making these cuties.

I even created crochet Elf Hat or beanies in seasonal colors. Loving yarn and crochet as much as I do, I really had to do it.

Color and Texture at LittleGemsbyLuisa, an Etsy shop

Today I am hosting Luisa, shop owner of LittleGemsbyLuisa on Etsy. Here is my interview.

1. How did your start your business? What motivated you to open your Etsy shop?

“I started my business by making myself a customized bracelet. I think that I never hit puberty. I have very dainty features! I was wearing one of my designs at work one day and colleagues wanted to have one too. A few months later I started selling so much I was able to save enough to pay for our wedding reception. Several years later, and two kids later, I finally took the plunge in to Etsy. I wanted to do something I loved that generated revenue and allowed me the flexibility to be at home with the kids.”

2. Which item in your shop is your favorite? Why?

“That’s a hard one! I am into my bohemian phase right now. I love all long wooden necklaces and my leather bracelets too.”

3. When did you learn your craft?

“I started knitting with my mother at around 8. I’ve been beading for over a decade now.”

4. Is there anything else you would like to share?

“Don’t try to please everyone. There is a reason why people like your creations, you made them. Learn about social media, take excellent pictures and don’t expect over night success. Measure achievement by where you were yesterday, last year and compare it to the present.”
