Christmas in Full Swing

As promised in my last post I have been busy creating new Christmas designs and improving my old designs and photos.

One thing I have learned throughout the life of my Etsy shop is that quality photos will sell an item quicker than anything else. Photos that I have received from my customers and from photographers have been such a blessing for my sales. For those items that I do not have professional pictures of I have taken pictures myself. I will post about that another time – for now I will stick to the newest items in my shop.

Most recently I created my Newborn Swaddle Sack Snowman Outfit. The swaddle sack is made with white homespun yarn which I think creates the perfect texture to look just like fluffy snow.

The red scarf is actually Tunisian crochet. I love the way knit looks but am not very good at it. Tunisian crochet is the perfect blend of the two and this “knit stitch” really does make it look like it was knit.

(I did’t really get a good shot of the right side of the scarf to show the knit stitch). If you’re interested in learning this technique, this video by Kim Guzman is a great tutorial!

The holly berry cloth buttons and the jewels were purchased at Joann’s.

If you like this outfit and would like to see my others please head to my Etsy shop and “like” them as well as liking this post! Thanks so much!
