Cozy Crazy turns Button Nutty

I’ve been absolutely in love with coffee cup cozies lately. On a roll knits these super awesome ones and I picked up an adorable batik one at Tight Knit in Troy from Petra (we’ll be back August 8th but more on that later).
So, I tried my hand at whipping up a crocheted version for my friend Emily’s Birthday- super results if I do say so myself!

Emily and the matching crocheted cell case/change purse

But what do I do to make them mine…… Then I found these shrinky dink buttons from Spare Button And off my mind started racing elsewhere. Amazing right?????? She also has a great tut on how to make them on her blog . I think I’ll be making some dragonfly ones to go with my shops theme and start using them on just about everything. So, more to come with custom buttons!

Starry Starry Blanket

Here is the special order I've been working on. All done with Simply Soft and Vanna's choice. I layered a small star blanket on top of a half double crochet rectangle. I used single crochet to anchor it to the base. Tip: Safety pins are your friend- use them to hold the star in place :)

Fun Give-Away from On a Roll..

On a roll is an adorable little shop with these super cute coffee cozies I've been eyeing and now they are having a give-away

Take a peek and throw your name into the lot :)

Come check my mom and I out at Tight Knit on July 18th! 10AM - 2PM

She'll have paintings, bags, cards and other goodies on display and I'll have a lot more than what my etsy shop can hold :)
