Knitting is dear to my heart. I love it. Many of my winter nights watching Christmas movies have also been spent knitting away. But I got to a point where I knitted so many scarves that I wasn't wearing any of them. That's when I started Windsong Knits. It's my little lovechild of an etsy shop. All these scarves are knitted by me with my own patterns that I've painstakingly figured out. Below are some of the newest scarfs added to my shop. I love of all the scarves, and naturally, only knit scarves I'd love to wear myself. Check out my shop if you're in the market for a Christmas present or a little bit of an shopping indulgence!
I have a little fun project in the works for all my brides. hurray.
For some of my most supportive clients, I wanted to make a somewhat meaningful Valentine's gift to show my appreciate to them. I wanted something that could be sweet and useful, so I thought of an embroidered heart magnet! I bought two colors of fabric (gray and mustard) in my branding color scheme (gray, chartreuse, pink and mustard) and went to work. All I did was cut out hearts and embroider the yellow side with the couple's initials (or hello for my unmarried clients). I sewed the magnet into the inside of the gray fabric, sewed the yellow and gray fabrics together and stuffed it. :) Then I was done! To finish it off, I made thank you / Valetine's. I designed the green card in Illustrator with stripes that appear on my DVDs to clients. And for the heart I wanted something cute so I put the quote, " The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart." For both the green card and pink heart I used my printed to print each individually. I designed and printed the label for the envelope and the "thank you" sticker on the gift box on adhesive paper. The gift box came with some fluffy stuff, which I thought was ugly, so I folded and cut little accordions to cushion the magnet instead. And that was it! YAY. This was such a fun project.
(And I just wanted to note that it was cheaper to make this whole project than it was to mail it!)
