Felted Purses, Totes and Gifts

I love felting wool and making it into purposeful items.  It is thrilling to put my beloved hand knit or crocheted item into the washing machine and see what comes out.

Unique Accessories for Unique People.

I have just been making a hat in the style of a hood using a chunky marbled acrylic. I wanted to make something different to the hats I had been making. I start off with the idea, allow it to stew in my mind for a few days until I more or less have a plan for making it. The first one of any style takes the longest as i am working it out as I go along. I only pulled this one out once and started again. I think the yarn alone makes it stand out and the style is something different to the norm.

The Spirit of the Island

I’m inspired by both nature and raw materials. Where I live in the woods, I am surrounded by nature. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets, the call of birds, the silence of sunshine and flowers blooming. And I am a HUGE craft supply junkie, so just staring into the swatches of yarn or a bag of embroidery floss, I’ll suddenly see the orange of the Butterfly Weed in the garden, or a mint green like the moss on our stone walls, and I’ll immediately feel invigorated with creative energy.

I don’t know how old I am. Well I do sort of, but when I’m asked I have to work it out from my date of birth as its not a number that’s kept to hand in my head.

A Heart Handmade Blog Holiday Featurette

Hope you enjoy my critters as much as I enjoyed making them!

I love the slight imperfection that comes with handmade goods. They feel much more alive than machine-generated massproducts and I like to think that the intention of thought, attention to detail and most of all love that goes into handmade creations will also resonate with the new owner.

Eccentric, Altered, Inconsistent, Fun

My youngest has a behavior disorder which has required me to quit my childcare business, and I had to find a source of income. I turned to my knitting and crafting as a way not only to help support us, but to allow me the time to spend with my kids. I started out knitting with thrift store yarn and yarn from deconstructed sweaters. Anything I could get ahold of really! I call my biz Poor Girl Couture for a reason, as I started it from scratch withthrift store supplies and alot of books. This business has really grown over the past year, and I couldn’t be more thankful for the support of my fiance and my family.
